The Cowboys’ future is so vibrant they should get shades … actually. Michael Gallup missed out a landing Saturday afternoon when the huge receiver misplaced the ball in afternoon daylight shining by AT&T Stadium’s giant 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. Everyone 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 right it,” however as a substitute Jones refuses to confess there are any issues with Jerry World, as a substitute chalking it as much as soccer individuals not figuring out the place the solar is.
This isn’t a one afternoon downside. It’s been a difficulty 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 growth in Arlington, with the idea that new building would ultimately be constructed up and block out the solar downside 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 right the difficulty it will admit that his palace isn’t excellent — which is why he’s burying it down his checklist of points. Jerry would sooner ask his workforce to “take note of the place the solar is” than dare placing shades on the offending home windows that will assist his workforce 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 growth guess as a substitute of correcting the difficulty would require acknowledging that the solar shines within the sky, and never out of Jerry Jones’ learn finish — and that isn’t occurring.
So, preserve getting used to being blinded at AT&T Stadium, as a result of this subject isn’t going wherever. It’s going to be scrumptious when this decides a house playoff sport.
