Jerry Jones: Seahawks ‘imposed their will’
Jerry Jones said he was disappointed by the Cowboys’ 27-7 loss Sunday in Seattle. That’s certainly an understatement. After defeating the New York Giants on Sept. 5, the Cowboys were given 10 days to prepare for the Seahawks but didn’t respond like a team focused on the task at hand.
Instead, the Seahawks “imposed their will” on the Cowboys, according to the team’s owner and general manager.
“We should have totally had all bases covered, but obviously they did too and in a better way,” Jones said of the extra preparation time. “The Seahawks were prepared. They played ready. They played with emotion.
“This is a disappointment for us and an example for us about how to play at home field.”
The Cowboys play their next two games at home — against Tampa Bay and Chicago — before a bye in Week 5. Their next road game isn’t for nearly a month, Oct. 14 against Baltimore.
“We knew there was an opportunity to win two on the road, but make no mistake about it we had all the respect in the world for this team and knew we were in for a tough ballgame here, it always is, they have a great record at home here,” Jones said. “There’s no getting around it, they out-played us today all the way.
“We didn’t get it done today and everybody in this room is disappointed.”
