He just proclaimed, that going to Seattle, is one of the hardest things a team can do. And to be good, you have to beat us first. I take that as a compliment.

He said "To be where we want to be you have to beat Seattle..."
You think Jerry wants to be "good"? He wants his team to be the best in the world. To be the very best team in the world you have to be able to beat Seattle.
Too bad he sucks as an owner so he'll never get what he wants.

He's talking them down... as if he says "My team does not lose to the lowly Seattle Seahawks... no way, no how, never."

Man that is him saying he thinks we are a top team and his team will not arrive until they beat us in our house, which they did not do.
Smile everyone JJ just said the Hawks are great team.

He is probably thinking that the Seahawks cannot sustain their current playing level and will revert back to a middle of the road team his Cowboys should beat, away and at home. Those are his demons. He still lives in the Jimmy Johnson era of the Cowboys. Every year pundits rate them atop the heap as the pre-season favorite to win the Superbowl. There is always a discussion of how great the talent is that the Cowboys have but yet they cannot consistently win their division.
Reading that statement, it can be looked at in several ways. But no matter what, until he gets his house in order, he is lucky they beat the Browns in their own house this year.

which side of the glory hole?

If he really wants to be a great team, he'll park his big stupid ego, stop trying to pretend he's some kind of bigshot football guru and hire a real GM to handle his football team.
