How does Jerry Jones feel about 3-4 Cowboys? 'Well, I'm sick'

It’s been 17 years since the Dallas Cowboys have been to the Super Bowl and owner Jerry Jones had publicly shared his hopes this team would end his long drought.

The Cowboys’ comeback effort on Sunday was dashed by the New York Giants and they are now 3-4 and sputtering in the NFC. The good news is the race is wide open at the midpoint of the season. The bad news is injuries have piled up for the Cowboys and they have not shown any consistency.

Well, I'm sick," Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM on Tuesday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "It is just very disappointing. I'm very disappointed, but not discouraged at all. I have a lot of confidence in Jason Garrett and I have a lot of confidence in our coaching staff. I know that we're continuing to make improvement in all these areas.”

When Jones talks repeatedly about having “confidence” in his coaching staff you begin to wonder if one of the things missing is his confidence in the staff. Jones also said it’s no surprise that the club has been booed at Cowboys Stadium, not with the expectations that were attached to this year’s team.

“We all know that for whatever the reason, we put it up on our screen and we also had Jason up there and I'm not sure if Tony (Romo) was up there or not, but that gives a good opportunity to create some kind of reminder that we're not playing well, and those are the people responsible for not playing well.

"I accept that and I understand it. I'm not saying that it doesn't hurt to get booed, but that just goes with it."
