Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones promises change after disappointing season.

Dallas Cowboys' owner and general manager Jerry Jones said in an interview with Jasmine Sadry of KRLD-FM that the Cowboys are in for an uncomfortable offseason.

Jones told Sadry that the Cowboys missed a giant opportunity on Sunday, telling Sadry,

"I'm very disappointed. I thought we missed a great opportunity (to win Sunday)," Jones said. "... I can assure fans that it's going to be very uncomfortable for the next couple of weeks and months at Valley Ranch."

Jones also said that, "Change is necessary at 8-8. A change will happen."

The Cowboys had a chance to clinch a playoff spot on the final week of the season for the second year in a row but failed to do so. They lost to the Washington Redskins 28-18, giving the NFC East division crown to one of their biggest rivals.

Jones refused to comment about whether head coach Jason Garrrett will be stripped of his play-calling duties next year or if defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will be back with the organization.

Even with the threats of change, Jones continued to back starting quarterback Tony Romo, who threw three costly interceptions against the Redskins. Romo's screen pass thrown off of his back foot late in the fourth quarter was intercepted by Rob Jackson and ended any chance for the Cowboys to come back and win.
