Cowboys owner Jones disappointed with offense

The SportsXchange

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the same offense he sees in practice has not carried over into games.

Jones told the Dallas Morning News on Friday that he expected more offensive creativity with quarterback Tony Romo taking on a bigger role and offensive coordinator Bill Callahan calling the plays this season.

But the offense just does not have the same spark in games that it shows in practice or did during the preseason, according to Jones.

"I saw it really good in preseason," he said. "I saw it good in training camp. And I've seen it good here in game preparation. I have seen us limited in sometimes what we practice out there as to getting that to the field during the game.

"That's one of the things that we reviewed and are trying to get better at, to get those adjustments that we have made offensively to actually get that involved in the game."

The Cowboys are 5-5 heading into Sunday's game against the 4-6 New York Giants, who have won four straight.

"The more we can do, that means things are going as planned and we'll be better if we can get a lot of the things we've practiced on and implemented during the offseason on the field," Jones said.

Dallas' offense is ranked 18th in the NFL with 327.8 yards per game. The defense is last in the league, allowing nearly 440 yards per game.
