Quote Trivia: Jerry Jones Being the Eternal Optimist

Today’s quote about the team’s chances in 2014: “Better than 8-8. We can get better than 8-8. We are hell-bent to change that.”
Good. Great. Just do it.
Anyway, for quote trivia today, we look back at a previous dark time during the Jerry Jones era. We will even look at two quotes.
Here’s the first one:
I couldn’t operate and couldn’t make decisions if I got up in the morning and thought that we were going to have a losing record. When I’m making decisions – even though we want to look long-term – I want to make decisions that help us win games this year, as well. I think we can do both, and that’s why I think we’ll win more than half our games.
Question #1: Jerry said this in June of what year?
Question #2: How did the Cowboys end up doing that year?
Jerry predicted a 10-6 record for the Cowboys in the season described above. A linebacker on the team made the following quote:

Question #3: Who said this?
