Hey, look, another missed tackle! (USA Today Sports Images)Following Monday night's 45-28 loss by the Dallas Cowboys to the Chicago Bears, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he wouldn't mind seeing the defense being a little more aggressive.
Jones' son, Stephen, the Cowboys' executive vice president, took that a big step further: He told ESPN that the Cowboys' defense didn't even bother showing up in the game.
"You turn on the tape and guys we count on week in and week out didn't show up," Jones said following an NFL owners meeting Las Colinas, Texas. "I don't know what it was, but we didn't get it done, and I've got to believe we can do better than that."
Watching the unit allow 490 yards of offense and scoring drives on the first eight possessions was enough for Stephen Jones to name names — and some big ones — for the poor effort.
