Jerry Jones has gone on the offensive this week, following a second consecutive week where Jason Garrett’s game management, and in turn his job security, have come into question. Jones delivered what, at least at face value seemed a resounding vote of confidence in Garrett on Tuesday in an interview with ESPN’s Hannah Storm. And as for the idea that Garrett might be helped by bringing in an offensive coordinator, well, Jones thinks that idea is just laughable.
“I’m actually humored when I hear that he might be overloaded mentally being the coordinator as well as the head coach,” Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. “That’s humorous. His biggest asset is his mental capacity and his ability to digest information and then act on it.”
Maybe so. But what’s not so laughable (at least for Cowboys fans. For fans of other teams, very laughable) is the fact that the team has squandered three fourth quarter leads of 12 or more points this season. In the previous 51 years of the franchise’s existence before this season, that happened just twice.
