Jerry Jones getting crabby about Cowboys’ awful start
The continuous struggles of the Dallas Cowboys recently irked team owner Jerry Jones to his dismay. He didn’t hold back and clearly let his frustrations be known when he was asked a question if the team currently has a leadership void, as per NBC Sports’ Albert Breer.
Jerry apologizes: "If I was a little abrupt there, I don't want to start our day off like that. … This certainly isn't my most tactful time … I can't tell you how disappointed I am."
Then adds, "There's an old adage—don't piss an old man off with little money. He'll getcha." https://t.co/AP0kWBmv0Q

The question came after rumors swirled that head coach Mike McCarthy and his staff couldn’t handle the team well amidst their early struggles in the 2020 NFL season. The current regime’s flaws were amplified with the season-ending injury of quarterback Dak Prescott in their Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants.
With a struggling NFC East division, the Cowboys still couldn’t manage to overtake their counterparts and continued on their downward spiral. They already lost two straight games with the most recent defeat coming in the form of a 25-3 loss at the hands of the Washington Football Team.
To make matters worse, the squad’s veteran backup gunslinger in Andy Dalton recently suffered a concussion after being on the receiving end of a vicious hit from opposing linebacker Jon Bostic in the lopsided loss. With a 2-5 record, America’s team now sits at the third spot in the division.
Entering the halfway mark of the season, McCarthy and the rest of the Cowboys should find ways to stop their skid or they will be forced to move past this season and look forward to the next season instead.
The Cowboys will aim to get back on the winning track as they face division rival Philadelphia Eagles on November 1 for Week 8 proceedings.
