Not only was Cowboys owner Jerry Jones not ready to fire anyone following the team’s very brutal-to-watch 37-36 home loss to the Packers, he offered up a ringing vote of confidence in head coach Jason Garrett.
Specifically, Jones was responding to a question regarding Garrett’s future if he manages to miss the playoffs--which would make him 0-for-3 since becoming head coach.
“Let me be real clear, my refusal to comment one way or the other is not in any way a change from anything that I’ve said earlier about Jason’s future as our coach,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Let me be real clear, and that’s all I’m going to say about it.”
Jones was almost defiant in reminding the reporters at AT&T Stadium on Sunday that Dallas still has a chance.
“We’ve got a ballgame coming up,” Jones said. “By the way, Garrett will coach that game against the Redskins, so book that and write about that. He’ll coach that ballgame we’ve got coming up and as far as I can see in the future be coaching games for the Cowboys. It’s a setback for everybody, not just one guy.”
