After trying his best not to second guess Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, owner Jerry Jones spoke at length about not going for the dagger late in the game according to Clarence E . Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
He thought this could have been a big win for the Cowboys and would have preferred to try to make touchdowns and first downs rather than play conservatively. Jones lamented the decision to run it three times before giving the ball back to Tom Brady for the game winning drive.
“Last week we didn’t go conservative and we second-guessed that,” Jones said. ” This week we went conservative and we’re going to second-guess that. I would have like to have seen him go for the first down. We bet he couldn’t take the ball the length of the field and he did. We are here like we are because we thought we could pull another stop. That is asking a lot of the defense to pull another stop.”
