Jerry Jones Gets Brutally Honest About Cowboys Coach
Jerry Jones got brutally honest about his Cowboys coach following Sunday’s game.
Coming into the outing, all Dallas had to do was win. A victory would lock up the NFC East and ensure a postseason slot for the second consecutive year.
Ultimately, the Cowboys could not secure the victory. Now the Philadelphia Eagles control their own fate in the division. If Philly beats the New York Giants next week, they’re in. If Dallas loses to the Washington Redskins, they’re in.
After this latest defeat, Jones got brutally honest with reporters regarding Jason Garrett’s failures.
“It leaves, from my perspective, a lot to consider here,” Jones said.
“This was a little bit of a surprise. I didn’t see the Chicago Bears game coming and this one was a surprise.
“I thought we were prepared to play. I thought we could play better out here. I’m disappointed.”
Jones did not stop there, though. He continued to express his displeasure with how things transpired this weekend.
“When you get in this spot, you give yourself a chance to be real disappointed. We are.
“The fact that we didn’t get any [touchdowns], the fact the game turned out the way it did — they played well. Not a lot to say about anything else other than it’s very disappointing.
“We all expected to leave here as NFC East champs. We’re not. We’ll just go to Washington.”
The one thing Jones has stressed all year long is that Dallas has the talent to compete with anyone. Despite that, something is just off about this team.
Barring the Cowboys miraculously making the playoffs and subsequently going on a Super Bowl run, the odds of Garrett returning next year are slim to none.
