Jason Garrett Responds To Jerry Jones Wanting To Fire Him
Jason Garrett responds to Jerry Jones wanting to fire him in a recent interview.
Garrett, 53, has been the coach of the Dallas Cowboys since 2010. Over the years some have been able to dismiss his perpetual mediocrity by citing a lack of talent.
Between Ezekiel Elliot, Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott, clearly Dallas no longer has that excuse for underperforming.
As a result, Garrett’s seat has been getting hotter and hotter.
On Sunday, Dallas lost against a hobbled, Tom Brady-led New England Patriots team. Admittedly a bad call went again them that could have swung the game in the other direction, but that is how things go.
The Cowboys now sit at 6-5 on the year, and are only atop the NFC East because it is arguably he worst division in football.
After the Patriots loss, Jones did not try to bite his tongue. He clearly held the coaching staff responsible for what had transpired.
“This is very frustrating,” Jones said.
“It’s frustrating just to be reminded that some of the fundamentals of football and coaching were what beat us out there today.”
Clearly Jones has seen enough. Between him not wanting to offer Garrett a contract extension and the Cowboys’ disappointing play, he is clearly at the end of his rope.
On Monday, Garrett attempted to muster up a response to his boss.
Jason Garrett: “We always can coach better. 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.” https://t.co/BCtQlBFLJN

“All I can say is we all obviously want to win,” Garrett said.
“Unfortunately, we didn’t get the job done yesterday.”
Garrett did not stop there, though.
“We always can coach better,” he continued.
“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.”
Unless Garrett miraculously pulls off a Super Bowl run this year, which he won’t – clearly his days in Dallas are coming to an end.
