Jerry Jones: Cowboys have adjusted expectations; Failure to succeed not because of Dalton

By 105.3 The Fan

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - A lot of Cowboys fans are less optimistic about the team having success this season after Dak Prescott was lost for the season last week against the Giants.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked Friday about his level of optimism after the team has suffered several injuries to key players on the team including, offensive lineman Tyron Smith and La'el Collins, linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, and now Prescott.

"We should adjust expectations. (It's) different than optimism. But we should adjust our expectations. Dak is a very incremental part of the potential success to this football team," Jones said Friday on the K&C Masterpiece on 105.3 The Fan. "On the other hand, if we don't reach where we want to go ... and the ultimate success is to win the championship ... it will not be because of Andy Dalton. It will not be because of our play at quarterback. He's capable of stepping in and playing at that level."
