Jerry Jones, as he’s apt to do, created some waves earlier this week when he assured listeners on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] that quarterback Dak Prescott would be getting a contract extension. The team owner elaborated on that statement, his reaction to Hall of Famer Troy Aikman’s criticisms and his thoughts on Dez Bryant landing in New Orleans during his radio appearance Friday morning. The 3-5 Cowboys visit rival Philadelphia on Sunday. 

On why he wants to extend Prescott despite the offense’s struggles: 

“First of all, as to the timing, as to when, was not addressed. …I’m thinking Dak is our quarterback now and in the future without equivocation, and that’s the reason for making that statement.”

Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman said this week that the organization needs an overhaul. Jones noted that as the owner/general manager, he expects criticism. He tries to built a competent team, but the organization’s decisions are ultimately his, he said. 

“We’ve been through tough stretches when he played here. These are tough stretches. People are going to be critical. Take their shots. I’m fully aware that this is a time that we should be criticized.”

On former receiver Dez Bryant landing with the Saints and what he expects when New Orleans visits Jerry World on Nov. 29:

I haven’t talked to him, no, but I do congratulate him. I’m really proud for him. I think a lot of those guys in New Orleans. …I want the very best for Dez and the very best for Dez is for him to be on that football field and doing what he loves to do the most. …They’re having an outstanding year, and so I think it will be a great spot for him. …

“I expect him he might have a lot of fans cheering for him. I would hope so. …He’s given our fans and given the Cowboys and given us some great days, great plays, great moments.” 

On offensive coordinator Scott Linehan commenting that the under-performing offense starts with him:

“I just know that it would be impossible for everybody not to take ownership of the disappointment that we had against Tennessee. Everybody should have that ownership. Every person associated with the organization. There’s no question that we’ve all done that. …

“This can happen to you. You can lose a ballgame in the NFL. I’m being trite, and I know it, but it can happen to you. The real test is how you come back from those setbacks.”
