Sunday’s 48-32 loss for the Dallas Cowboys at home against the Green Bay Packers was nothing short of stunning. And for Jerry Jones, it was extremely painful.

Jones spoke with the media after his Cowboys got hammered by the Packers at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The longtime Cowboys owner admitted he hadn’t fully had a chance to comprehend everything. But he said the loss was the “most painful because we all had such great expectations and hope for this team.”

Jones also said he hadn’t thought about Mike McCarthy’s job status.

There has been plenty of speculation that Jones could feel like the team has topped out under McCarthy and could need a new head coach. Bill Belichick being available could be enticing for the team.

But this Dallas team had high hopes for a reason. Dak Prescott had an excellent regular season, had cut down on his interceptions, and that had people thinking the Cowboys might be ready to turn things around after past postseason disappointments. Instead, they fell completely flat and got hammered.

It’s easy to see why the 81-year-old owner is so shocked and disappointed.
