Cowboys | Jerry Jones optimistic on defense

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 15:14:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is convinced his team's defense has nowhere to go but up in 2014 despite losing DEs DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher and LB Sean Lee (knee).

We're certainly better on paper than we were at the end of the season last year. Not on paper at the beginning of the season last year, but on paper right now relative to how we ended up last year."

Cowboys | Jerry Jones admits it was hard to pass on Johnny Manziel

Sat, 07 Jun 2014 07:06:04 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admits it was tough to pass on QB Johnny Manziel in the NFL Draft. "Well, it was," Jones said. "Yes, it was. First of all, I couldn't believe he had fallen there. And secondly, we had spent a lot of time, I'd spent a lot of time. He's the kind of player that can be that kind of difference-maker. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll be a successful player. We have in Romo what I consider to be the better quarterback. But there's also the future, there's also insurance if you don't have him. If anybody could have adjusted to Manziel's style, we could have because we're a lot like that with Romo."

"You can't have it all."

Despite winning Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993 under his handpicked head coach, Jimmy Johnson, Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he regrets immediately firing legendary Cowboys head coach Tom Landry after Jones purchased the team 25 years ago.

"If I had a chance to do it over again I would've waited a year and just got my feet on the ground a little bit more and probably just gone with the staff that we had and then later made the ultimate change that I made," Jones said.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said head coach Jason Garrett is not coaching for his job in the team's Week 17 game, and any reports saying that he is are not accurate.

"I've addressed that three to four weeks ago and he is not, and that's all you need to say about it. "I have said the last couple of games I don't want to talk about it because it looks like, because someone else needs an answer, it is a point of consideration and I've said it earlier. I did it purposely several weeks back that certainly in terms of looking at the future, his future is bright in my eyes with the Cowboys."

Cowboys | Jerry Jones supports Tony Romo

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 10:16:37 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones supports QB Tony Romo's decision making that led to the interceptions in the team's Week 15 game. "I was for the aggressiveness we showed ... and it can apply to many parts of the game," Jones said. "But in this particular case, aggressiveness was throwing the ball on our end of the field -- throwing the ball in there close. Aggressiveness with Romo can mean not throw the ball, but buy more time, which increases the chances of having a bad play."

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 00:00:10 -0800

Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring) is with family and friends in Shreveport, La., dealing with the death of his father, Robert Owens. Claiborne had been dealing with a hamstring injury but had to curtail some of his rehab work because of the family issue. "He's very close with his family," Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said. "Very close in Louisiana and suddenly his father passed away at a relatively young age. He was not what I wold call an older man. Having said that, it tore his world up so he immediately left to be with his family. We knew he wasn't going to play this week and that's besides the point. He wanted to be with his family and we're giving him all of the time that he needs there or wants." KFFL sends its condolences.

Cowboys | No changes to coaching staff

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 09:17:53 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he won't shake up the coaching staff during the team's bye week in Week 11. Jones said defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin won't be fired and head coach Jason Garrett won't take the play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Bill Callahan. The Cowboys were held to 193 yards of total offense in their Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The team's defense ranks last in the league with an average of 439.8 yards per game. Jones believes the team needs to play more man coverage on defense. "You need to probably man up more in the secondary than we've been doing, rather than relying on zone," Jones said. "Because if we can't get pressure and we're relying on the traditional zone as you might mentally picture it, then that's a recipe for what happened to us the other night."

Cowboys | Owner more concerned about Reggie Bush Week 8

Sat, 26 Oct 2013 08:36:44 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he is more concerned about the team defending Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush Week 8 than he is defending WR Calvin Johnson. "When I look at where we seem to have some vulnerability using the passes out of the backfield, I look at what San Diego did, I look at times what Philadelphia did, if they were able to do anything at all, coming out of that backfield. That seems defensively to be a rough area for us," Jones said.

"We know the kinds of things he's been dealing with. "He's every bit the player we thought he was. He's every bit the athlete we thought he was."

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said OT Doug Free's future with the team will largely depend on which direction the Cowboys go in the NFL Draft.

"I think it's notable that we haven't said where we are and he hasn't said where he is relative to his status as we go into this draft," Jones said. "That's by design and certainly we wanted to see how and what we do in the draft ... If you draft a tackle, how does that impact a player like Doug, whether or not you move him around? I'm sure he's looking at it there as well."

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he wants the team's offensive coaches to use QB Tony Romo's skill set even more in 2013 so that he is even more of a focal point. The team is reportedly close to signing Romo to an extension. "Stay tuned. He is going to have high expectations," Jones said. "I expect him to be used. We didn't extend Troy Aikman although Troy had won three Super Bowls. We didn't make the financial commitment to Troy not to have Troy be a critical, if not the critical, part of what our team was about and our ability to move the ball. That is going to be the kind of emphasis we have with Romo. He is not going to be paid to be a bus driver."

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team hasn't made any final decisions on who will calls the offensive plays next season, but that head coach Jason Garrett is fine with the decision to move away from him as the play-caller.

"I think you get that when you create more input, influence, whatever you want to call it ..." Jones said. "If Bill Callahan has more influence - let's make that assumption. If he does, then you will see more of some of the things that work for him in his coaching career."
