Jerry Jones backs off threats to sue fellow National Football League owners

So keep all that in mind when Jones emerged from the locker room following Thursday's 28-6 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, expressing support and confidence in coach Jason Garrett and his staff.

What's worse, after throwing a mere four interceptions in the regular season previous year, quarterback Dak Prescott has thrown five interceptions and no touchdowns in Dallas' three games since losing Ezekiel Elliott to a six-game suspension.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that he appreciates President Donald Trump's frequent input on the protests during the national anthem protests that have been taking place in the NFL this season. Jones wouldn't elaborate on what he told the team. "We've just got to everybody just sit here and grab a hold, get back and let's see if can't do better and win some games". He also suffered a pair of interceptions, one of which was returned 90 yards for a touchdown by Desmond King. "I don't resent it at all, but I want to put it in perspective that this is indefensible what we're doing".

Nevertheless, "I probably have a much better relationship with the commissioner of the Salvation Army than I do right now with the commissioner of the NFL", Jones told CNN's Wire on Wednesday.

The return of all-pro left tackle Tyron Smith did little to help the Cowboys offensive woes.

Five games remain in the Cowboys' season, but the players know they won't make the playoffs.

Then again, Jerry has always lived in a world of gum drops and lollipops when it comes to the Cowboys. In the first half, Prescott's longest pass was eight yards, and he had just one completion for more than 20 yards in the entire game. Nestled within those three games was a 10-quarter stretch without a touchdown, a skid that was snapped Thursday with a fourth-quarter score that was all but meaningless.

Receiver Dez Bryant wasn't targeted at all in the first half.

Linehan's once-dynamic offense has failed to crack just ten points without Zeke Elliott.

Jones is admittedly shocked the Cowboys haven't done better without Elliott.

We have a small favor to ask of you. And here we are, with another fussy letter, which will get a similarly fussy response, and so on and so forth, until we all fall down from the force of the angry serious football men stomping their feet all at once. "Me individually and just this offense collectively, we got to get back to work and continue to do that and just, like I said, figure out what's going on and get out of this".
