Jerry Jones ‘not in the feel-good mood,’ still thinks in Andy Dalton after brutal loss to Cardinals
The Dallas Cowboys struggled without Dak Prescott on Monday night.
Dallas, with backup quarterback Andy Dalton taking over after Prescott suffered a season-ending ankle injury on Oct. 11, crawled to a 38-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals filled with turnovers and errors.
Though it wasn’t going fantastic before Prescott went down, team owner Jerry Jones stated on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday that his group looked very various without their star quarterback.
” That was the lovely glaring difference out there last night,” Jones said, by means of U.S.A. Today. “But it doesn’t have to stay that method.”
Almost everyone appeared to take on the blame for the loss, too, including Ezekiel Elliott (two lost fumbles) and Dalton (34-of-54 for 266 backyards, one TD and 2 INTs). Even coach Mike McCarthy said he “didn’t coach effectively,” something his gamers anonymously concurred with later on.
Regardless of the getaway, Jones states the team isn’t lost without Prescott.
” We can get the most out of our team and it could be enough with Andy Dalton,” Jones said, by means of USA Today. “We didn’t last night. He added to turnovers early. We had a play that could have been a turnover right off that would’ve been significant. But we can arrive with Andy.
” He’s going to be challenged. I wish we had been in much better shape protection-wise there, I wish we had a better run game and could get in better field position and better points in the game to deal with. When Dak had those things, we did well. Dak had the ability to take us when we didn’t have those things and keep us in the ballgame and get a couple wins.”
While the Cowboys boast simply a 2-4 record and are fresh off their worst trip of the year, they are still leading the godawful NFC East.
That might be a comforting thing for some Dallas fans, but Jones isn’t delighted about it.
