Jerry Jones says changes are coming for Cowboys during offseason
Jan 02, 2013 (Fort Worth Star-Telegram - McClatchy-Tribune News Service via COMTEX) --
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wanted fans to know he is "very upset, very irritated" after the Cowboys' 8-8 season and gave a wholehearted endorsement of quarterback Tony Romo. Jones promised change for the Cowboys, saying that "I can assure our fans it's going to be very uncomfortable from my standpoint; it's going to be very uncomfortable over the next few weeks and months at Valley Ranch."
Jones addressed the Cowboys' situation on KRLD FM The Fan on Wednesday morning during his weekly show. He refused to address two hot topics: Who will be the Cowboys' play-caller and the status of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
"I'm going to spend a lot of time visiting with people outside of the organization ...that will help us evaluate how to do the things that I know what our fans want to do, and that's not be sitting here at .500," Jones said. "There are a lot of teams that haven't been at .500, but nobody hasn't been at .500 and spent as much cash as I'm spending."
On Romo, Jones said, "Tony is a tremendous asset, and he's an asset that is going to be with the Dallas Cowboys for, as far as I am concerned, a long time." But asked if it should be inferred he would extend Romo's contract, Jones said, "You shouldn't infer anything. I'm just saying what I'm saying."
He said the Cowboys "need to look at the fundamental things," and he didn't mince words on shaking things up: "I can tell you change is necessary at 8-8. We're going to have changes."
