IRVING, Texas - When the Cowboys left the field in Washington Sunday night, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recognized that changes will have to be made.
"As far as I’m concerned, we're as far away as you can measure because we're at home and not in the tournament," Jones said after the game.
On his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan Wednesday, Jones expanded on his frustrations, saying changes are coming to his organization.
"Well I can tell you change is necessary at 8-8," Jones said. "Change is in order when you spend two seasons in a row down to your last two games and lose them, so we're going to have changes."
Jones would not say exactly what those changes would be.
"We're not going to have a meeting this morning that basically says we're going to do this or going to do that, do you think I'm nuts," Jones said.
Jones did warn that an atmosphere of change will take over at Valley Ranch.
"I can assure you guys and I can assure out fans this, that it's going to be very uncomfortable from my standpoint," Jones said. "It’s going to be very uncomfortable for the next few weeks and months at Valley Ranch."
Jones says he's not ready to take the risk that Denver took to get quarterback Peyton Manning, or the one the Redskins took to get quarterback Robert Griffin III. He said he expects quarterback Tony Romo to be a part of the organization for a long time.
"It's apparent to me that if you don't do something almost unconventional, then you really don't break out of that cycle," Jones said.
Jones says as he evaluates his team, he'll be seeking lots advice from outside the organization. He says nobody spends more money than he does and still comes away with a team that has a .500 record.
