Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, 78, has said that he would do anything to in a Super Bowl. Jones bought the Cowboys in 1989 and the Cowboys have won three Super Bowl since. Unfortunately for Jones, the Cowboys haven't won a Super Bowl since 1995.
“I found that he’s not quite as responsive to one’s individual ask as you might think, and I’m not trying to be sacrilegious here, but the facts are that I would right now, if I could, and I knew that I had a good chance to do it, I’d do anything known to man to get in a Super Bowl,” Jones said, per Pro Football Talk.
“That’s a fact. There’s nothing, in my mind, that can have a higher priority than that. As you know, sometimes you have to make decisions to go back to step forward, and we’re faced with that in building a squad.
You can’t have it all. You see several ways that you might be able to do something from my perspective to get better, but that will end up costing you down the road. That’s the pragmatic part when it goes. I feel as driven as I was when we first bought the team.
“I was scared to death then, and I’m scared to death now. I worry about what’s happened here with the economy and COVID, and I worry about our place in it, in the NFL and where the place is in sports. I worry about that.
But the thing that means the most to me and I care about — and I could be anywhere in the world I wanted to be right now — I want to be here with our team”.
Jones a fan of Michael Irvin's message
Cowboys legend Irving called out unvaccinated players, saying they are not doing everything they can to win.
Teams that have 85% players vaccinated will have fever restrictions this season but so far the Cowboys aren't meeting that threshold. “Dude, you’re not thinking right. You’re not thinking right. Whatever you got, I don’t give a damn,” Irvin said, via Todd Archer of ESPN.
“Nothing else can be more important. You’re not going to get this [winning a Super Bowl] easily. Nothing else could be more important. … Jimmy [Johnson] made that abundantly clear [during Irvin’s playing career].
Nothing else is more important. And not being one of the [85 percent vaccinated teams] says there’s other things to a great number of people on this team that are more important than winning championships, and that makes me worried”. Reflecting on what Irving said, Jones said: “I thought it was an outstanding message."
