Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

You ask for it, you got it.

The Dallas Cowboys owner tells me and Newy Scruggs this morning on 105.3 The Fan that he not only accepts criticism of his team's play this season, he desires it. Demands it, even.

"I knew when we walked outta Denver with that loss that we were in for a rough week," Jones said of, well, us. "But I can assure you that one thing I don't want is apathy. I want people highly pissed when we're not playing satisfactorily, and that's the case right now."

Oh yeah, and Newy also asked Jerry point blank about the head coach's job status ...

So, is Wade Phillip's job on the line this Sunday in Kansas City?

"No," says Jerry. "No it's not."

Oh, well.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
