“You and I both know that the one you are asking about all the time, if I have an answer for . . . if I gave you the answer you want to hear, then you would already have had it, so the fact you don't have it ought to tell you something. Or it should.“
I'm sure you've all seen it by now … it's been on every Cowboys related headline since the words were first spoken. Jerry Jones found a way to once again let himself be open for interpretation.
A lot of you have expressed confusion over what he said, but let's look at it and see just how clearly he answered the T.O. question.
“If I gave you the answer you want to hear …” We all know that most of the beat writers that were at that press conference have been spouting off about the T.O. situation. Most of them, most of the time, have expressed their desire to see Owens released. So my take on this answer is that Jones is saying if we were going to hear Owens will be released, we would have heard it by now.
Your guess is really as good as mine, but if I were a betting man, I'd bet strongly in favor of keeping Owens after hearing a statement like that. Only time will tell if Jones backs it up.
