The Dallas Cowboys have suffered two losses in five days. However, Jerry Jones Cowboys owner doesn’t intend to hit the panic button any time soon.
Jones spoke out about the fact that his team didn’t exert enough pressure yesterday on Derek Carr, the Las Vegas Raiders quarterback. Jones made it clear, however, that the defense would improve and “the skies are not falling”.
“You must look forward. Yesterday is dead like Napoleon. It’s gone,” Jones stated via ProFootballTalk. We must look at ways to improve. The sky isn’t falling. The cavalry is on its way, if you take a look at the six games that lie ahead. Take a deep breath, and remember that at this time of the year you are dealing with attrition. Your personnel is usually in a weak state. We are here to help.
Yesterday’s loss against the Raiders left the Cowboys without their top pass rushers Randy Gregory (and DeMarcus Lawrence) They also lost top wide receivers CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper.
It was a loss of 36 to 33 on national television.
