“I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that [they were faking injuries],” Jones said with a laugh, via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. “No, it was so obvious it was funny. It wasn’t humorous because we really wanted the advantage and knew we could get it if we could get the ball snapped.”
The NFL sent out a memo warning teams about the practice last week, and Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was talking with officials during the break as the “injured players” were being attended to.
“I thought we got them moving a lot and got them pretty tired during that stretch,” Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said. “They obviously had a bunch of injuries in that stretch. Tough break, I know. Seemed to come back pretty good after that though.”
Tony Romo with the zinger!
You know how this ends: Jones will eat those words on October 20, when Jason Garrett and his fifth grade haircut are forced to pull out every trick they have in order to slow down Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense. The Eagles didn’t give us nearly enough time to make our substitutions! AND WHY DOES MY COACH LOOK LIKE HE’S STILL WORKING ON THAT WHOLE PUBERTY THING!?
*I don’t actually mean that.
