The Cowboys’ future is so vibrant they need to get shades … actually. Michael Gallup missed out a landing Saturday afternoon when the large receiver misplaced the ball in afternoon daylight shining by AT&T Stadium’s massive finish zone home windows.
Jerry Jones on @1053thefan when requested about Michael Gallup dropping this ball within the solar at AT&T Stadium on Saturday: “The solar was there for each groups, so each groups needed to search for it. All people is aware of the place the solar is on each side of the ball.”

That is unquestionably one of many funniest doable responses from an proprietor with points like this. Most would merely say “sure, it’s an issue and we’re going to appropriate it,” however as an alternative Jones refuses to confess there are any issues with Jerry World, as an alternative chalking it as much as soccer folks not realizing the place the solar is.
This isn’t a one afternoon drawback. It’s been a problem for the reason that stadium was constructed, and designers knew it. One story from 2016 famous that designers primarily banked on AT&T Stadium resulting in mass improvement in Arlington, with the assumption that new building would ultimately be constructed up and block out the solar drawback contained in the stadium. That hasn’t occurred, so now, six years later, we’re nonetheless seeing the Cowboys battling the glare throughout afternoon video games at residence.
For Jones to appropriate the problem it might admit that his palace isn’t good — which is why he’s burying it down his listing of points. Jerry would sooner ask his crew to “take note of the place the solar is” than dare placing shades on the offending home windows that may assist his crew win extra video games.
It’s unquestionably one of many stupidest unforced errors within the NFL, and there’s no finish in sight. Asking groups to regulate to a failed improvement wager as an alternative of correcting the problem would require acknowledging that the solar shines within the sky, and never out of Jerry Jones’ learn finish — and that isn’t occurring.
So, hold getting used to being blinded at AT&T Stadium, as a result of this situation isn’t going anyplace. It’s going to be scrumptious when this decides a house playoff recreation.
