Ezekiel Elliot Responds To Jerry Jones Wanting To Fire Jason Garrett
Ezekiel Elliot responds to Jerry Jones wanting to fire Jason Garrett in a new interview.
Elliot’s Dallas Cowboys came up short this past Sunday against a hobbled New England. In the immediate aftermath, Jones came out and publicly rebuked his coaching staff.
“This is very frustrating,” Jones said of what he saw transpire.
“It’s frustrating just to be reminded that some of the fundamentals of football and coaching were what beat us out there today.”
In Jones’ mind, the Cowboys are too stacked with talent to have gone 3-5 in their last eight games.
Garrett attempted to defend himself from his boss after the fact, but he did not do a very good job.
“All I can say is we all obviously want to win,” he said.
“Unfortunately, we didn’t get the job done yesterday.”
Still, Garrett pledged to do better.
“We always can coach better,” he said.
“We always can play better. That’s the way we look at it. We can always learn from our experiences.
“Certainly there were some good things in the game we can build on and there’s plenty of stuff we need to correct as we go forward.”
This week, Elliot was pressed on the public mess unfolding regarding Dallas’ coaching situation.
Ezekiel Elliott on Jerry Jones’ criticism of Jason Garrett/staff: “We’re not worried about the outside noise. We know what’s important. We know we need to be ready to play this Thursday. We have a job to do and can’t let anything distract us from that.’’

“We’re not worried about the outside noise,” he said.
“We know what’s important. We know we need to be ready to play this Thursday. We have a job to do and can’t let anything distract us from that.”
Whether Elliot wants to acknowledge it or not, this is going to keep becoming a bigger and bigger deal unless the Cowboys starts winning.
