Jerry Jones: "Cowboys Have Problems Beyond Loss of Tony Romo"

Jerry Jones is looking beyond the loss of Tony Romo in hopes of defining the Dallas Cowboys problem, and may need to examine the face in the mirror

Sitting at 4-9, the Cowboys are two games out of first place in the NFC East after Sunday’s 28-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and have just one win in the nine games without Romo.

Jones, per USA Today, finally admitted there are problems bigger than Romo’s loss.

“I don’t have the heart to put us in with those clubs right now, because I don’t want to — we’ve got more work to do than just get Romo healthy,” Jones said after the Week 14 loss, via USA TODAY Sports. “And I’m not just saying that to be magnanimous here for anybody in some way. But we’ve got a lot of work (to do). I want you to know that there are some things that we have to do better for us to have a healthy Romo and have an effective Dez Bryant. There’s some things we’ve got to really address and do better as we look over these last three games and in the future.”

Jones was then asked about the coaching staff.

“I’m just saying in general, all the way across,” Jones said. “I thought for instance that 71 (rookie left guard La’el Collins) played lights out out there tonight. He’s very aggressive. But my point is, that offensive line — I’m proud of the talent we’ve got right there, but obviously, you can have a talented, healthy offensive line … and you can’t win four ballgames with three to go.”

It sounds like Jones will be doing some soul-searching during this offseason.
