Jerry Jones just can’t shut up. We all know that.
[As in, don’t talk about the playoffs right now, Jerry. Let this team focus on beating the Eagles]
However, since he is going to open his mouth anyway, perhaps he could show a little bit more appreciation for this team’s legacy.
Last night, the main leaders of his team participated in a montage featuring a quote about winning.
That quote came from Vince Lombardi.
Cowboys fans older than 30 need immediately to place their foreheads into their hands. Let’s say this in unison…
Jerry, you just don’t cite Joe Gibbs. And in the name of all that is Tom Landry, you don’t quote Vince Lombardi.
Let’s go with this one:
I don’t believe in team motivation. I believe in getting a team prepared so it knows it will have the necessary confidence when it steps on a field and be prepared to play a good game.
— Tom Landry, whose teams would have already won this damn division.
That all said, Jerry was pretty funny during the pregame show last night.
Of course, I continue to forget my principal rule that I should never listen to anything Jerry says.
