Even after a remarkably ugly loss to the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday night Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones believes that, all things considered, the team is in pretty good shape. Therefore, he won’t even address the idea that coaching changes could be coming.
"Say it any way you want to, I'm not even going to address--really I'm not--the coaching staff as to whether they're safe or they're not," Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via ESPN Dallas. "We're 5-5. We're tied for the lead in our division. We've got players coming back. We've got one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League. We're off of a rough loss. That doesn't call for major changes out here at all."
Obviously, Jones isn’t happy that his team is back at .500, at 5-5, following Sunday’s loss. It’s a frustratingly familiar place for the Garrett-era Cowboys. But as the owner is always is quick to remind us, most of the Cowboys’ losses have come in games they had a chance to win (which he seems to find somewhat encouraging).
"Certainly, 5-5 is not acceptable," Jones said. “We can say that we were close on all but one of those games. We were competitive and very easily could have won any of those four [other] games that we lost. I would have to say it would be a stretch to say that we should have won or we should have been in there close in New Orleans.”
