The Dallas Cowboys lost again. While the Cowboys lost to the now 8-0 Atlanta Falcons there were no positives to take from another lack luster performance.
Dallas managed 13 points against the Falcons on Sunday night. Even Jerry Jones who had previously proclaimed that the Cowboys were a Super Bowl team had to admit his disappointment.
To make matters worse there is reports from NBC 5 in Dallas that Jones was locked out of the Cowboys locker room after the teams loss. Jones eventually made his way into the locker room to answer questions.
“I know how our fans feel. I know how I feel,” Jones said. “What counts is to win the ballgames. How you’re playing and what you’re doing good can count if you’ve got enough time to straighten it out and basically do something good for your season, so we’re running out of time here and that’s a concern of mine.”
Running out of time may be one way to put it. Out of time is another. The Cowboys dropped to 3-5 on the season. The biggest problem with the Cowboys is their offenses inability to score points and not commit turnovers.
“We had some guys do some good things tonight, although I will say this: I’d liked to have seen more bigger plays. They just made bigger plays than we did at the end.”
One of the reasons for the Cowboys lackluster offense has been the absence of running back DeMarco Murray. Murray has not played since Oct. 14 and the Cowboys have scored just 18.6 points a game since his injury. The Cowboys are 29th in the NFL rushing, averaging 83.4 yards per game.
