Jerry Jones is not having a good day.
On Friday morning, around 12 hours after his Dallas Cowboys suffered a humiliatingto the Chicago Bears, Jones called into the team’s official radio home, 103.5 the Fan in Dallas. And, well, Jerry gonna Jerry.
“Get your damn act together yourself, okay? Now, we’re gonna have a good visit this morning, but settle down just a little bit,” Joneswhen asked at the start of the interview if he was embarrassed by the loss.
“I don’t like your attitude to come in,” Jones continued. “I’ve been traveling all night and I don’t have the patience to jack with you today.”
Jerry Jones sidesteps questions about Dak Prescott’s contract
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t seem to be in a great mood following last week’s mistake-filled loss to the New England Patriots. After said loss, Jones did not exactly go to bat for head coach Jason Garrett. He’s now turning his attention to star quarterback Dak Prescott.When asked about the status of a Prescott extension on NFL Network Wednesday morning, Jones sidestepped the question. Instead, he talked about the need to win football games.Jerry Jones when asked on @gmfb about Dak’s contract: “Let me just say this, I think all of us, including the fans, want to win a damn football game.
Jones went on to say that he can’t publicly talk about specific personnel decisions because of the league’s tampering rules, and that he wouldn’t talk about them truthfully during a radio interview even if he were allowed to do so.
“Do you understand bull----?” he audibly asked the hosts, and then apparently swore again.
Asby the station’s program director, the station has a dump-out delay system that prevents callers from swearing on the air. After Jones swore twice, the system automatically ended the call just as the hosts were asking Jones if he thought the team had quit on Coach Jason Garrett.

Jason Garrett reportedly will finish season as Cowboys’ head coach
Jerry Jones has always pushed back against midseason firings. With his Cowboys still in first place, that makes a lot of sense. Let’s see how the season plays out before drawing a final conclusion. A separate report earlier on Thursday indicated that barring a deep run in the playoffs, Garrett will not be back in Dallas. One potential candidate has emerged if there’s a coaching change.Garrett boasts a 83-64 record in nine-plus seasons as the Cowboys’ head coach. He has yet to lead Dallas beyond the NFC divisional playoffs during that span.
“As far as quitting on Jason Garrett, you gotta remember that when you quit on your coach, then you quit on yourself, because we’re all a part of this. … The one that deserves the most responsibility is the one that ultimately makes the decision to put what players out there and put what coach out there. That’s the general manager and, in this case, it happens to be the same man that owns the team, and I completely understand the fans’ frustration with me."
Jones wrapped things by saying “we all feel like hell” and talking about how he deals with such stress.
“What I do is I scream in my pillow,” he said. “That low, low, eerie thing you’re hearing across Dallas? That’s me, screaming in my pillow.”
“Go fix this thing,” one of the exceedingly deferential hosts told Jones, who gave an extended chuckle.
“Yeah, and then I’ll move on to the country’s problems,” he said.
As for how those Cowboys-specific problems can be fixed, Jonesafter Thursday’s game that there won’t be any coaching changes during the season. But the NFL Network’s Jane Slater early Friday morning that Jones has a “very real interest” in former Ohio State and Florida coach Urban Meyer, who’s now biding his time at Fox Sports. Slater reported that Stephen Jones — Jerry’s son and the Cowboys’ executive vice president — has spoken to Meyer recently. She also mentioned Oklahoma Coach Lincoln Riley and Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott as possibilities, should Jerry Jones ever decide to move on from Garrett.
