Here is today’s edition of Dallas Cowboys Quote Trivia.

Realizing that several visit this site on mobile devices, I will post the answers to the questions in the first comment. I don’t think the quiz plugin I use will work on those devices.

The Quote: "Our team is best served now by a head coach with NFL experience."

The Question: Jerry Jones said this about which of his head coaching hires?






The Quote: "It was a real blow to me," he says, "because I felt the coach didn't have any confidence in me at all. If the Cowboys believed that Roger was better injured than I was healthy, then I began to think that maybe I belonged somewhere else."

The Question: Who said this?






The Quote: "I'm going to Chicago Monday, and there are three or four other teams interested."

The Question: Which free agent made this statement after the 1993 season?
