An upset and irritated Jerry Jones vented his frustration Wednesday morning on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM 105.3, vowing that changes are coming and saying that everyone at Valley Ranch will be uncomfortable over the next few months, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
The Cowboys finished 8-8 for a second consecutive season Sunday. Also, for the second consecutive year the Cowboys lost their season finale on the road against a divisional foe that could have given them the NFC East title and a playoff berth.
A year ago, the Cowboys lost to the Giants and had to watch them march on to a Super Bowl victory. Now the Cowboys have to sit at home and watch the rival Redskins play in the postseason.
Jones, the Cowboys’ owner and general manager, made it clear Wednesday that he’s not happy with the current state of the Cowboys, emphasizing that the coaches and players need to be working more on fundamentals.
The Cowboys only have one playoff victory since 1996 and Jones said that they needed to “do something almost unconventional” to break out of the cycle of mediocrity that they find themselves in.
Jones offered his support of coach Jason Garrett and his long-term commitment to quarterback Tony Romo, but he refused to answer questions concerning defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s status and if Garrett will remain the team’s play-caller in 2013.
Jones vowed that changes are coming, but don’t expect major changes because Jones isn’t going to replace himself as owner or general manager and his support of Garrett and Romo also means there won’t be a new coach or a new quarterback in 2013.
Jones said he hasn’t met with the team’s coaches yet and it would be premature to discuss such issues. Jones said he would meet with people outside the organization to help with his evaluations.
