Jerry Jones: I Want Pissed Off Fans

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.
