    With the Dallas Cowboys riding a six-game win streak, owner and general manager Jerry Jones just keeps getting higher and higher on head coach Jason Garrett, who has finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs in each of his three full seasons as head coach.

    "I don't know that anybody has had a better, brighter vision of Jason's future than I do," Jones said, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas. "I've always thought he had the potential to be a serious consistent winning coach in the NFL and still think that. I'm just proud that he has structured his staff the way that he has, the way he's coaching them the way he has, I'm glad he's coaching the coaches the way he is. They have a great appreciation for what he's bringing to the table, as it should be. It's his staff.

    "I'm just glad to see him have this kind of success. His players hang on every word and they're seeing what he's preaching works. That's an ideal set of circumstances for a coach that is looking for a big future in the NFL."

    Garrett is in the final year of his current contract, meaning he entered the year as a so-called lame duck coach. And while Jones is happy with Garrett, he still won’t discuss a new deal for his coach at this point.

    "We've got so many contracts that we're supposed to be needing to be talking about now that things are going good," Jones said. "I'm not even going to begin to start anywhere. I'm just going to squat."
