JERRY JONES GIVES HIS COWBOYS A PEP TALK
Spirits obviously are sagging among the Dallas Cowboys after Tony Romo threw five interceptions on Monday night, including two that were returned for touchdowns by a smothering Chicago defense.
"It's just going to suck for a few days now, obviously," Romo said. "It's going to sit there in your stomach and just eat at you."
The 34-18 loss in front of a national television audience dropped the Cowboys to 2-2, and was so overwhelming that team owner Jerry Jones felt compelled to address the team afterward.
Jones shared what he told his players with the Dallas Morning News:
“Individually I just wanted to say that I could say, I’ve been buried nine feet under before with no hope and got to see some sunshine and came out and that’s what you got to do. Nobody is more disappointed for our fans than these players. Nobody is more disappointed than Tony, there’s no question about it. We’ll get in here and look and see how we can play better. I am surprised . . . We’ve seen this team play well and it can play a lot better.”
