Owner Jerry Jones called Sunday’s 26-21 loss the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional playoffs one of the most disappointing losses he’s ever experienced at Cowboys owner.
He puts it right up there with the 1994 NFC title game loss to the San Francisco 49ers that prevented the Cowboys from winning three straight and possibly four straight Super Bowls in the 1990s.
What made Sunday’s lost so hurtful was because Jones felt this Cowboys team had a chance to win the Super Bowl for the first time since they last one the Super Bowl 1995, breaking a 19-year drought.
“It would be right there,” Jones said of his most devastating losses. “This would be right there on three or four handfuls of games. We have a team here that had a chance to compete for the championship. I think we are right now good enough to compete with the eventual Super Bowl winner and win the ball game. And that hurts.”
