Jerry Jones Apologizes to Cowboys Fans For Getting Hopes Up for Super Bowl Season

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is "embarrassed" with the Dallas Cowboys performance this year. The Cowboys have limped to a 1-6 start, a record that should likely fall to 1-7 with a fierce Packers team coming up next week.

The football world was looking for a good season from the Cowboys after Jones explained to the Dallas media that Super Bowl XLV would be hosted at the new Cowboys Stadium. Jones would have never predicted his team's record to be this discouraging.

"I'm embarrassed," Jones told the media after Sunday’s 35-17 home loss to Jacksonville. "Of course I am. And to every fan, I should have and do take the ultimate, ultimate responsibility. I do. That's the way we're structured. That's the way I run it. There's no question that I have the plan and executing it to have the best players and the best coaching that we can have. I'm dumbfounded that we are 1-7."

Who knows if Jones was already counting next week’s game against the Packers as a loss but at this point, the Cowboys are only 1-6.

Between Tony Romo and Jon Kitna, 11 interceptions have been thrown, not to mention five dropped passes alone from receiver Miles Austin. Things may only get worse with Romo out for eight weeks with a broken collarbone leaving Kitna, who threw four interceptions this week, as the starting quarterback.

"You couldn't get me to say it, but you know that I thought we had a team here that could be one of the top competitive teams in the NFL," Jones said. "I'm very, very, very sorry to our fans. You should have better than this … You can tell by the way some of the things that we've done to certainly make the Cowboys everything you want them to be, you should be able to tell that I won't rest until we've figured some things out to get us in a different spot. What it is, I don't have that."
