After 3 Straight Losses What Kind Of Team Are The Cowboys?
The Dallas Cowboys opened their season winning three straight. After Sunday's loss to the previously winless New York Jets, they're .500.
They dug themselves in a hole early and gave themselves a chance to tie the game with less than a minute to go, but were unsuccessful at a two-point conversion attempt.
Still tied for first in their division many have lost hope in a team that appeared to have a lot of promise. Including owner Jerry Jones.
According to NFL.com Jones stated that as of right now Dallas is not a "top team" in the NFL and needs to simply focus on winning the division.
"I think it's all about where you end up in your division. I think the competition against each other and the competition within the division, I think that's where it all is. Now, ultimately, if you're one of the really top teams, which we're not, we are not... I hope that someday this season we could be one of the top teams. We certainly were not tonight."
On his 77th birthday, Jones said what needs to be said to this talented unit. The season isn't over yet, but they are digging themselves into quite a hole. Last year they had a much worse start and still managed to make the post-season.
For Jets fans, the good news is it looks like second-year quarterback Sam Darnold could be the real deal in his debut game this season.
