07:36 AM ET 10.25 | What a difference a week makes. A week ago, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones declared his team a viable Super Bowl title contender. And that was when they were 2-3 and before a sloppy 19-14 victory against the Carolina Panthers. The devastating loss of linebacker Sean Lee for the season with a sprained toe and the continued absence of running back DeMarco Murray, who is out indefinitely with a sprained foot, has Jones singing a more pessimistic tune heading into Sunday's showdown with the [Giants]. ... "I've said all along I think this team has an opportunity to be a contender but the one exception that I made was ... sitting as we're sitting right now health wise, injury can make a difference and does in the NFL."

Well, since he's predicted Superbowl victory for most of his time there, maybe this different tactic will meet with some success.

Such nonsense to think they ever had a chance. My 7-9 prediction took a serious hit yesterday with Lee going on IR.

Cheer up, Jerry. Eva Longoria is available. You too could have gorgeous arm candy like Bob Kraft.

Take that catheter out of your mouth and give her a call.

I wonder if the same guy that cleans his glasses puts the straw in his juice box?

Enjoy, Giants fans... After Jerry ran his mouth in the preseason, you have the right.


This team's not good enough to be making bold predictions like he did in August.

A moment of lucidity before the senility sets in again.

They sure as hell looked good enough on opening day. I don't think I've ever seen a team fall off the face of the map so quickly, even before the injuries.

The same path has not proven fruitful for Sexy Rexy.

As long as he's calling all shots regarding the football operations and Romo is his quarterback...this is a wise decision giving up Super Bowl dreams.....

Nevermind Jerry there's always next ye,, decad,,, uh century?

Carnac: "A Superbowl, a franchise quarterback, and laid".

(opens envelope)

Carnac: "What are three things Jerry won't get this year?"

October 25, 2012  09:15 AM ET

Jerry has realistic expectations? What's next, a real GM?

Wait a minute, a sprained toe is a season ending injury? I remember Ken Norton playing most of a season with a bicep flapping in the breeze. I think we may have pinpointed the Cowboys problem.

Turf toe used to foul up Primetime Sanders all the time.

Sorry Jerry, but injuries are part of the game. You can't claim to be a Super Bowl contender as long as you don't have injuries. Depth wins Super Bowls.
