Jerry Jones still believes in the Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott

A few days after being crushed by the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it clear that he isn't giving up on seeing his team in Super Bowl LVIII.

Although Jones acknowledged that there is a gap between his team and the 49ers, he said he is confident in the direction of the franchise under head coach Mike McCarthy.

"I'm not panicked. But the gap is -- when something tells you what it is, don't try to dream that it's something else," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday.

"Now, what I'm trying to say is we can do better than what we did out there Sunday night. That's a given."

On more than one occasion, Jones reiterated his belief in McCarthy and his coaching staff, as well as the abilities of quarterback Dak Prescott, who he hopes can lead the Cowboys back to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1995-96 season.

Worst loss in Dak Prescott's career

The 42-10 loss to San Francisco on Sunday is the second-worst McCarthy has suffered in his career, and the worst for Prescott since becoming the Cowboys starter.

"We ran into an outstanding team, and we didn't play well," Jones said. "We have players on field and on the roster that can get it done."

No change in play calling on offense

Despite Prescott's three straight losses to the 49ers, the Cowboys owner's confidence remains intact.

"I believe Dak is a quarterback that can get us to the Super Bowl, and that's the way that's going to be,"said Jones, while adding that he hasn't considered giving play calling duties to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and returning McCarthy to the role he had while Kellen Moore was in charge of calling plays on offense.

"Should we change at this juncture back to where we were at this time last year? No, we should not. We should go with the kinds of things we've been working on.

"We should recognize we had a very bad outing and San Francisco had a very good outing. We should recognize that and call it what it is and not mislead ourselves to sit here and say, We should completely change out the cards ... You couldn't if you wanted to, to reinvent your offense."

"My point to you is, that I feel as good about the quality of players, feel as good about their resolve as a team, about their resolve individually and we've got to get out here and we'll prepare for the Chargers, and we will use what happened against San Francisco to be a better team when we go on the field against the Chargers."
