    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jerry Jones has consistently said he likes the direction of the Dallas Cowboys under coach Jason Garrett, but the owner/general manager called that kind of talk "hollow" after the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day loss.

    The 38-31 loss to the Washington Redskins dropped the Cowboys to 5-6 this season, putting them in serious jeopardy of missing the playoffs for the third consecutive season.

    The Cowboys failed to come back from a 25-point halftime deficit against the Redskins, the fourth consecutive home game the Cowboys have trailed by double digits.

    "That would be real difficult right now because you would have to point to things like comebacks, and that's hollow when you are not winning the game," Jones said. "Or last week, we win one (against the Cleveland Browns) and we have to come back to win it, but we don't win it playing well. So that's hollow right now."

    Jones noted that Garrett had not "lost the team," meaning the Cowboys continue to play hard. That, however, is meeting minimum requirements, not Jones' expectations for a proud franchise that has won only one playoff game in the last 15 seasons and employed six coaches during that span.

    "I don't want to be talking about looking through," Jones said. "Our expectations were to compete for the playoffs and then whatever else we can get when you get there, compete for. We know you've got to be playing well when you get there. We've had some setbacks on some injuries, but that's not the difference out here right now at all."

    And saying the O line was headed in the right direction if I remember.

    Jerry is a joke. A bad joke.

    It's bad enough that we have to endure losing and a poor performance week after week, but I don't know how much longer I can endure Jerry's post-game comments. Why can't he stop rubbing salt in our wounds? He really believes the Cowboys fan base is stupid.

    I watched that interview on the website, and while he didn't seem angry or overly upset, it's encouraging that he said the injuries weren't an excuse.

    I just wish he would shut up and fad into oblivion. I could go my entire life without hearing or reading another thing from Mr. Jones and be very very happy.

    Maybe all hope is not lost, maybe Jerry has one last neuron firing that is telling him Garrett is a joke.

    The Cowboys won't succeed under any new HC as long as Jones is still the GM so prepare for whomever as coach and more disappointment.

    A new HC will only cure a symptom while the disease is still running rampant.

    Somebody needs to tell Jerry to evaluate himself as a GM.

    Yeah. If he expects success than fire himself as GM. Would be the single most successful thing he could do to move this franchise in the right direction.

    Mr. Jones the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

    i've got news for you

    many of our fans are stupid

    just read this board for a sampling of the over the top crazy sunshine pumping that goes on by allegedly "football smart" fans

    we get crazy statements like

    its a process and it is only garretts second year as HC (completely ignoring that he has been OC for 5+ years)

    great defences are built through a good secondary becasue 'this is now a passing league'

    we dont need a real NT for our 3-4 (clearly bellichick and lebeau know nothing about the 3-4)

    out OL is struggling because costa is hurt (a long shot, who has strugled all last season, and has not been on the field for more than 2 games at a time this season)

    garrett is a great OC and HC (mistly becasue he gives great PCs and talks a good game in cliches)

    and on and on

    all you can do is shake your head

    About time he stops being satisfied with Garrett taking us in the wrong direction.

    Personally loved Tim MacMahon's line, Garrett is all process and no progress.
