Feeling confident, Jerry? Cowboys owner likens the current Dallas team to the ’90s franchise dynasty — where they won three Super Bowls in four years — and describes Dak Prescott and co as “hounds” after going 30 years without a win in the playoffs at the street
Jerry Jones can’t resist sending his thoughts back to the Cowboys dynasty of the ’90s as he draws comparisons between those great Dallas teams and the current team led by quarterback Dak Prescott.
The Cowboys celebrated a 30-year winless run on the road in the playoffs, beating Tom Brady’s Bucs 31-14 in Tampa Bay.
Since 1995-96, when the Cowboys last won a Super Bowl, Jones and the rest of the organization have been unsuccessful, having not appeared in an NFC championship game since that point.

Her last playoff win on the road came in the 1992 NFC Championship game, which led to three Super Bowl wins over the next four years, something the 80-year-old Jones can now only dream of.
“It’s like a hound dog,” Jones said after the 31-14 win over the Buccaneers.
“We sampled what you need to realize it’s there and will make you grow.
“I’ve seen that happen to our championship teams and I’ve seen us take people who certainly had the goods but didn’t necessarily have the experience of something like this happening to them. But our ’90s teams just kept coming and getting better and better and growing.’

It was a statement win for the Cowboys on a night that saw QB Dak Prescott produce one of the games of his career.
Their path to the NFC championship game requires them to get through the 49ers in San Francisco next, and should they navigate that, they would then have to go to Philadelphia to snag a Super Bowl seat.
‘Can it be done? We’ll find out,’ added a giddy Jones. “This team has a level of talent and now they have the intangible experiences that they get knocked down, stand up – all those things that we hear about, all those things that are football, all those things, this team had some of that.

“Everyone on this team knew when they got to Tampa today that the world was thinking that Tom [Brady] would sit out there and snap it out, if not at the last minute then maybe sooner. And we’ll go home and we’ll go home again in San Francisco. We’ve got more mustard than when we got here.”
The San Francisco reunion will bring back some painful memories for Cowboys fans after the 49ers ended their season at AT&T Stadium in Dallas a year ago.
“Every time someone eliminates you, you want another crack next year,” said All-Pro right guard Zack Martin when asked if he should line up against the 49ers next.
“So it should be a great atmosphere out there in San Francisco and we’re looking forward to that.”
