Jerry Jones: “No thoughts” of replacing Jason Garrett

AP

On Sunday, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the Cowboys would not be changing coaches after the end of the season.

After Sunday’s 34-31 overtime loss to the Saints, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that he had not heard Glazer’s report concerning Jason Garrett’s future with the organization but wound up confirming up all the same. Jones said he’s “real pleased” with the job Garrett has done this season and explained that there’s no change on the horizon.

“I didn’t hear that and have not even thought about anything different than Jason being our coach. That’s the only response that I have to it,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Seriously, and I’ll be real serious about it, I have no thoughts about making a coaching change.”

A terrible loss to the Redskins next week could give birth to some thoughts, but it’s gotten harder to see the Cowboys making such a major change after the way they’ve played since falling to 3-5 this season. The team certainly didn’t quit on Garrett and a win next week still makes them the division winners, something that didn’t seem possible at midseason.

That reflects well on Garrett and explains why no one seems to be thinking about a change in Dallas this offseason.

  1. I look forward to that shot of him looking disapointed in his suite at the end of the game next Sunday Night after the Redskins have swept his creation. A tradition unlike any other.

  2. Please resign Garrett, Romo and Ryan to lifetime contracts! These are some of my favorite all-time Cowboys. See ya Sunday night, Jerruh! Hail!

  3. As a long time Dallas fan, I’m fairly upset. Garrett cost Dallas 4-5 games last year and 2-3 this year. That is the difference between going or not going to the playoffs, mostly in the NFC East. His gameplans have been baffling at best, though the defense has stated that is still is so predictable that they know the play that is going to be run. His time management has been terrible, which really blows me away, because evidently he is very smart. The Cowboys are the most penaltized team, lack of discipline, their opponents convert on an extremely high rate on 3rd down, lack of focus, and they are not “punished” or cut for bad play, lack of accountability. These are major parts of coaching. If Jones has a chance at Sean Payton and passes him up, a second time, he is extremely foolish.

  4. Garrett is a young and improving coach. As expected, people blame him for yesterday’s loss when it was not his fault. However, Jerry should not overlook the opportunity to sign Payton. Obviously he won’t sign him as a head coach, so I say he should hire Payton as a GM. We all know, though, that Jerry will not do this.

  5. Pretty impressive they still have a chance at the playoffs with six defensive starters on IR. It’s always entertaining to read the haters comments when it comes to the Cowboys.

    Really y’all gave leslie thumbs down for this? As a lifelong cowboys fan, he/she is 100% accurate, the devil aka Jerry will never give up control! Jerry Jones is what’s wrong with our team not our coaches. Personally I hope when Jerry dies his son takes over.

  7. Garrett does things that makes me want to kick babies, but he’s getting better, replacing Rob Ryan? thesportsguy52 I think you smoked too much crack. Unless you can give me a legitamte reason? Yeah I didn’t think so. Our defensive line is beat to hell Rob is doing the best he can with what he has to work with spencer, ware, sensabaugh can only do so much.

  8. Jason’s done a fine job and so has Ryan. They should not be replaced. And when they sign Norv Turner to run the offense next season Garrett will really shine.

  9. So you Dallas fans would take Tony Bozo over RGIII? I doubt it! I hope the game on Sunday resembles the one on Thanksgiving!!!! Garrett and Jerry both need to go.

  10. All these Cowboy faster/Redskins fans are hilarious. I’m a diehard Dallas fan and I think even Garrett should be fired or relieved of his play calling duties. that said, we are down 7 starters on defense…yea other teams are beat up but name another one with seven hurt on one side of the ball..RR is doing a great job with what he has to work with…See ya Sunday night in landover ..we are gonna shut you skins fans up

  11. “Great News! love to watch him get out coached by Shanahan.. HTTR!”

    Yeah, because Dallas is 3-1 in Garrett’s tenure as head coach and the Skins are 2-3 in Shanahan’s. He sure is “out coaching” him!

  12. Dallas should have came out in OT doing the same hurry up passing that got them into OT. Cant play field position against Brees in sudden death. Stop trying to run the ball! That inside run to Murray and then the short pass after had no sense of urgency. We’ll just punt and hope our defense stops Brees.

  13. Wish Jerra would give serious thought on replacing himself & his son. I’m no coach, but why did the cowboys sign Carr & draft Mo & have them play zone & not man coverage looks like the same ole D we had last yr. last yr they told us we can’t run Ryan’s D cause he doesn’t have the players on the outside. Ok so what’s the excuse know. I know we have players on IR well so did Green Bay 2 yrs ago & they didn’t cry about it they coached their players without the help of their stupid owner. Only if we could be owned by the city & not that clown in the suite.

  14. As a skins fan I def think they are on the up but you can’t sit and talk trash about a cowboy team that is pretty much even in disappointment over the past 15 years. That said it sure is nice that they are playing for division title next week with no mention of eagles or giants in the conversation

  15. “So you Dallas fans would take Tony Bozo over RGIII?”

    Sure. Why not? Romo’s won more games for the Cowboys than Bob has won for the Redskins this season, and with only 25% of the hype.

  16. “I have no thoughts about ”

    much of anything. God bless Jerry Jones, his decision-making gives the rest of the NFC Least hope and results every year.
