Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made a no-nonsense statement about why he has confidence in the team heading into the 2022 season.
Whether it’s the regular season, the playoffs or the offseason, the Dallas Cowboys are going to take the spotlight. Ahead of the start of the 2022 season, the Cowboys have received some bad news as they lost left tackle Tyron Smith and wide receiver James Washington for the start of the season. That certainly doesn’t bode well, especially with the rival Philadelphia Eagles drastically bolstering their roster.
During an interview with 105.3 The Fan, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about his optimism heading into the team’s season. The Cowboys owner, who is known for his interesting quotes, came up with another interesting explanation, to no one’s surprise.
Jerry Jones uses math to explain optimism heading into the Cowboys season
Well, there you have it.
Let’s be real here, the Cowboys are expected to contend not only for the NFC East title, but for the Super Bowl every season they enter. The thing is, they haven’t reached the Super Bowl since the 1995 season. They haven’t even made it to the NFC Championship Game since.
As mentioned earlier, they lost a big part of their offense when Smith tore his hamstring and will likely miss most of the season. The team signed former Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters to provide depth.
In the wide receiver slot, Washington is recovering from a broken foot. Michael Gallup is not expected to play in Week 1 as he moves closer to returning from a torn ACL.
But, as has been the case in recent years, they are in the middle of the playoff hunt. It will be interesting to see if they do or if they will drop out of contention. Whatever the case, Jones will be optimistic to start the season.
