Was Sunday’s victory over the Seahawks in Seattle Jason Garrett’s greatest moment as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys to this point? Owner and general manager Jerry Jones believes so.
“I’ve certainly had all of the appreciation in the world for everything Jason is as a coach,” Jones said after the 30-23 upset victory, per the Dallas Morning News. “His qualities as an individual, a human being, his ability to lead men, whether it be his staff or his coaches. But what we certainly wanted to see success on the kind of impressive scale that we saw it today. Certainly yes, this is probably Jason Garrett’s finest hour as a Cowboy.”
After leading the Cowboys to an 8-8 finish and missing the playoffs in each of his first three full seasons as head coach, Garrett--who is in the final year of his contract--has the Cowboys at 5-1 going into their first NFC East matchup on Sunday, when the New York Giants come to AT&T Stadium.
But Jones isn’t ready to dish out a new contract for Garrett just yet.
“I’ll tell you this, I’ve spent more money in happy situations than we could in our lifetimes spend,” Jones said. “We won’t talk contracts tonight. There’s nobody that doesn’t understand that when Jason does good, I do good. I’m being like a proud father. I’m proud that we’re enjoying his success with his head coaching effort, and he deserves it.”
