Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is still frustrated over how the Cowboys' season ended and he made it clear he won't hesitate to make changes at any level if he feels that will improve the team. The Cowboys suffered a 23-17 loss to the San Francisco 49ers at AT&T Stadium in the wild card round last week.
"If I thought changing out men at any level, that would improve us, I'd change it out," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. He added: "I'm very, very frustrated and upset. You can call it COVID, you can call it anything, but we have used up some very talented players over the last few years."
Jones wants the Cowboys to be able to quickly fix things After the season ended, coach Mike McCarthy said the Cowboys need to fix their penalty issues.
Jones wasn't a fan of that.
"Now let me be real clear, one of the pet peeves I have is that I don't like this, 'Well, we've got to work on this in the offseason.
We've got to work on this.' I don't go for that," Jones said Friday, without specifying McCarthy's evaluation of the team's penalty problem. "I want those things recognized and addressed after we play Tampa after the first game or after we play the sixth game.
I don't want to wait until we're sitting here with no season left to address these things we're doing or not doing. "So all of that is in the mix here and a part of what I do. ... The ultimate decision on these coaches and anywhere around here is one that I have to make, so the guy that you're the toughest on should be the one in the mirror.
He's the one that has the ultimate responsibility, and consequently, I get to operate at that guy's timeline." Jones felt the team was good enough and needed to win the Super Bowl. "The team and their functions got us in a position healthy, in a position to win a Super Bowl.
And, so, I'm very guarded about throwing all of that down the drain because we didn't win one of the steps in the playoffs getting to the Super Bowl," Jones said when asked about the coordinators' performances during the regular season.
"So, to answer your question, I take into consideration a lot about how well we did this year in the regular season and what it meant and what the record meant. So, I will. And, so, yes, I thought we did a really, a really good job of getting to the playoffs. "Still, I can't get over what we did in the playoffs."
