Jerry Jones never seems to lack confidence when it comes to his Dallas Cowboys. So with the season basically on the line this weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles, why in the world is Jones choosing now as the time to waver in his faith? During an interview with a Dallas radio station yesterday, the outspoken Cowboys owner admitted that he is "scared" about taking on the Birds—at home!—this weekend.
"Because it is the Eagles and after the butt-kicking they gave us up in Philadelphia, I'm scared," Jones told KRLD-FM on Tuesday. "It's that kind of feeling. The respect turns into being afraid of what they can do to you if you have some breakdowns out there, so you can put that scared there if you want to. I think sometimes I know I do my best when I'm scared."
We sure hope so. We've got plenty of Giants fans floating around the 'Plex office and the absolute last thing they want to see is the Eagles put in prime position to win the division and make the playoffs after the disastrous season they've had. So, please: Don't be scurred, Jerry. Unless, of course, you're down 2 points late and need a field goal to win. Then, be scared. Because we've all seen what happens when the 'Boys are put in that position. Let's just hope it doesn't come to that...
