The Cowboys’ immediate future looks bright to Jerry Jones. (David Richard / AP)

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was a little less loquacious and a little more circumspect when he was asked recently about his team’s chances of winning the Super Bowl.

And, yes, it really was Jones, who also functions as the team’s general manager.

Jones and his wife were leaving Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, when a TMZ cameraman asked, “Are we going to win a Super Bowl this year or what?”

Jones had a one-word answer: “Yes.”

That’s not very Jerry-like.
