Jerry Jones: Cowboys collapse against Green Bay is a ‘serious step back’

ARLINGTON – Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called Sunday’s 37-36 loss to Green Bay “one of the hardest losses that I’ve experienced.”

The Cowboys blew a 26-3 halftime lead and Jones had a difficult time explaining what he had just witnessed.

“That’s a shame that we lost that ballgame,” Jones said, standing outside the Cowboys locker room at AT&T Stadium. “When you’ve got that kind of lead and you’re playing well, and we were playing well, then it’s a shame to lose a game like that.”

In typical Jones fashion, he tried to find a silver lining, saying that their playoff hopes are still alive if they win their next two games. However, can he really feel confident about defeating Washington and Philadelphia after seeing how the Cowboys have lost their last two games?

“I am disappointed, I hate to have the taste that I’ve got in my mouth,” Jones said. “If you are in most everyone’s shoes in that dressing room, it’s obvious that this is a serious step back to have played the way we played in the second half and lost the ball game.”
