Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ patience is running thin, and it’s becoming clearer with every passing day.

The Cowboys are currently 2-5, Dak Prescott is out for the year, heat continues to build on head coach Mike McCarthy and it sounds like things are nearing a tipping point, judging from a recent interview with Jones.

“Just shut up and let me answer it: no. You’re not asking me that. I gave you the answer. When I go into the locker room, there’s no leadership void in my eyes. Now that’s your answer,” Jones responded when asked during an interview on 105.3 The Fan whether or not players lacked leadership in the locker room, according to USA Today.

He also added, “We haven’t spent the time, the years, the money, the effort and everything for the Dallas Cowboys to be where we are right now.”

Yeah, I think it’s safe to say things aren’t going well at all for Dallas. You know things are bad when an NFL owner is snapping during an interview.

It’s also not just any owner. It’s the most powerful owner in all of American sports, and Jones is generally very friendly with the press.

I guess things change quickly when it looks like the team is falling apart.

Obviously, losing Dak changed everything about this season, but there’s still no excuse for how bad the Cowboys are.

Trust me, things will only get more testy with every game the Cowboys drop. You can take that to the bank.
