Things are not going well in big D lately. The Dallas Cowboys lost their third straight game and fourth in five weeks, dropping a 31-24 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football that was not nearly as close as the score would indicate.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to acknowledge the problems, and continues to say that he will not fire Jason Garrett during the season. The Cowboys still have a chance to claim the division title, but it’s not a pretty situation as January approaches.
Jones had a regular interview scheduled for Friday morning on 105.3 The Fan, and things got a little heated. At one point he said “do you understand bullshit” and shortly after, the interview cut off, per NFL Network’s Jenny Slater. At first Twitter commentary was suggesting Jones had hung up on the interview. However, the station’s program director offered some clarity. Apparently repetitive curse words triggers a disconnect!
Program director Gavin Spittle now saying a delay system in studio shuts down radio interview for repetitive curse words so because there were two back to back it dumped. He’s back on @1053thefan— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) December 6, 2019
Getting in the NFL playoffs is enough to get a shot at winning a Lombardi Trophy, but it’s hard to see Dallas being able to get past a Seattle or San Francisco squad that will come into the game with 12 or 13 wins. And if the Cowboys don’t get a win in this year’s playoffs, could Jason Garrett finally get fired? It seems likely, but who knows with Jerry Jones.
Suffice to say, there will probably be a lot more swearing before this situation gets turned around.
