Jerry Jones: Jason Garrett isn’t coaching for his job


Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was on the radio Tuesday morning, but he didn’t have much to add from Monday’s assessment of quarterback Tony Romo’s status.

Jones reiterated that Romo has not been ruled out of Sunday’s game and that he’s going through treatment in hopes of being cleared by doctors in time to face the Eagles. Jones wouldn’t discuss more about Romo’s medical condition, citing HIPAA regulations, choosing to leave his status a “question mark” as the week unfolds.

Jones was willing to say a bit more about coach Jason Garrett, however. Jones, who said he wouldn’t give repeated votes of confidence in the coach, said that Garrett is not coaching for his job this weekend.

“He has a bright future with the Cowboys,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

There’s no timeframe on that future, of course, and Jones has the right and the ability to change his mind at any moment. For now, though, the Cowboys have remained steadfast when it comes to Garrett remaining on the job whether or not they beat the Eagles this weekend.

    Just like Jerry isn’t general managing for his job.

  2. antneejay2 says: Dec 24, 2013 9:58 AM

    Translation: Garrett is done.

  3. officialgame says: Dec 24, 2013 10:00 AM

    Jones statement is a kiss of death if there ever was one.

  4. baltimorons says: Dec 24, 2013 10:00 AM

    Because he already lost his job.

  5. ctiggs says: Dec 24, 2013 10:01 AM

    We all know Jerry and the Cowgirls do not have it better than us!!! What a circus goNINERS!!!!!!!!

    This guy just can’t keep his mouth shut, can he?

  7. deadeye says: Dec 24, 2013 10:03 AM

    The only way Garrett isn’t coaching for his job is if Jerruh has already decided to get rid of him.

  8. ctiggs says: Dec 24, 2013 10:05 AM

    Bring Back Wade!!!

  11. aaronfraudgers says: Dec 24, 2013 10:08 AM

    That’s because Garrett’s getting fired no matter what.

  12. lennydpocketqb says: Dec 24, 2013 10:14 AM

    So he is coaching for his job.

  13. grogansheroes says: Dec 24, 2013 10:15 AM

    Am I the only one that thinks the ‘Boys leaked out Romo’s injury on purpose? If he plays, and they lose, well he was injured. If he plays and they win, he is a hero. if he doesn’t play, he was injured. It’s a no lose scenario for Jones and Garrett.

  14. ravenswhat says: Dec 24, 2013 10:15 AM

    Jer bear…just stop talking.


    Everyone with ears

  15. fissels says: Dec 24, 2013 10:16 AM

    If Jerry had a better defense their record may be 11-4. You can’t blame that on Garrett. Jerry shops for the groceries (and the defensive coaches)

  16. moerawn says: Dec 24, 2013 10:17 AM

    Jerry will you shut up and go sink a few wells and let somebody who knows something about football take over as GM.

  17. 1rockyracoon says: Dec 24, 2013 10:21 AM

    You know it’s a serious injury when Jerry refers to HIPPA regulations. As long as they will have the same defense on the field, the Eagles will win.

  18. nceaglesfan says: Dec 24, 2013 10:22 AM

    HIPPA regulations. Google laugh on that one!!!!!

  19. mrbigass says: Dec 24, 2013 10:23 AM

    Garrett takes it and likes it. Why would he fire someone he can whip like a puppy that just peed on the carpet?

  20. slobberknocker says: Dec 24, 2013 10:25 AM

    “He has a bright future with the Cowboys,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan

    Sounds like somebody at Oklahoma State owes Jerry a favor-

    Kyle Orton famous last words before taking the field:

    Hold my Beer, and watch this…..

  22. drez146 says: Dec 24, 2013 10:30 AM

    God I love this team…they give me so much to laugh at!

  23. kingpel says: Dec 24, 2013 10:39 AM

    Garrett isn’t coaching for his job and Romo just has some back spasms. Everything is great here in Dallas no matter what you hear on ESPN!

  24. kappy32 says: Dec 24, 2013 10:40 AM

    The person whose job should be riding on Sunday’s game is the GM of the Cowboys. However, I guess when the owner & the GM are one in the sans, you get as many do-overs as you’d like.

  25. thelionsrgreat says: Dec 24, 2013 10:51 AM

    He isn’t coaching for his job because he isn’t actually the coach right Jerry?

  26. 80sbroncofan says: Dec 24, 2013 10:52 AM

    Jerry, You and coach Garret are doing an awesome job. Please do not change a thing..

    The 31 other NFL teams.

  27. whodatnhollywood says: Dec 24, 2013 10:56 AM

    Jerruh’s right. Jason Garrett isn’t coaching for his job. Jones won’t fire his “Yes Man” to get a “real coach.” He loves coaches he can overshadow! And rob them of their glory!

  28. donttrip22 says: Dec 24, 2013 10:57 AM

    I like to thank all the closet fans for there comments I know how much you all enjoy reading about the Cowboys and Mr Jones

  29. tvjules says: Dec 24, 2013 10:58 AM

    Of course Garrett’s job is secure! Yes men like him don’t come around that often.
    Besides, a real coach would never allow the GM/Owner to call down plays from the suite.

  30. aldante66 says: Dec 24, 2013 10:59 AM

    Jerry and Son probably put a ton o money down on Dallas losing, knowing Romo is done for season. LOL

  31. florida727 says: Dec 24, 2013 11:01 AM

    The only person who likes hearing Jerry Jones talk is Jerry Jones. Why can’t this guy just shut the f— up? Just because he has money doesn’t mean he knows anything about football. In fact, it’s pretty obvious he knows nothing about football. He proves it by his meddling with a team that’s won, what, one playoff game in 14 years?

  32. Ferdinand says: Dec 24, 2013 11:02 AM

    I just take this to mean he will wait until Tuesday to fire him instead of Black Monday.

  33. dedicatedhawkfan says: Dec 24, 2013 11:08 AM

    Just like he wasn’t going to fire a coach mid-season…oh that’s right, Wade Phillips got fired right after that statement.

  34. 23rdusernameused says: Dec 24, 2013 11:19 AM

    3rd season to finish at 8-8 in a row once the birds shellac the girls!!
    America’s, .500, team!! whoopie!

  35. bathroombenlovemachine says: Dec 24, 2013 11:22 AM

    The Eagles will dominate the classless Cowboys organization.

    The Eagles will win Super Bowl 48.

    Nick Foles is better than your quarterback.

  36. lawyermalloy says: Dec 24, 2013 11:52 AM

    He’s the perfect coach Dallas; he’ll do whatever Jerry wants;he’s a puppet!

  37. ajgreenhof says: Dec 24, 2013 12:34 PM


  38. alshonbrandontandem says: Dec 24, 2013 12:35 PM

    After Garrett gets canned, wouldn’t it be great for Dallas to hire Schwartz? An idiot replacing an idiot…

  39. athwartships says: Dec 24, 2013 12:49 PM

    Well, since Garrett doesn’t call plays and the GM is a egomaniacal hack that has finally found a puppet that fits his hand well….I’d say his job is safe.

  40. wnstonchill says: Dec 24, 2013 12:56 PM

    Garrett is coaching for his “life”, not his job. That’s what the almighty king , Jerry Jones VI is actually saying. This isn’t some petty NFL ownership deal here in Dallas! This is royalty speaking. Have we not any respect for the highest power in the land??

  41. pesh00 says: Dec 24, 2013 1:09 PM

    Funny how all these sheagle fans come out of the wood works. Keep talking. We beat you at your house when the great nick foles gave you 3 whole points. Don’t use a concussion as an excuse, we’ve got enough injuries on defense to last for the next 2 years.

  42. nfceastisbeast says: Dec 24, 2013 1:53 PM

    All of these ‘Sheagle’ fans? How many, 2? By the way, the ‘Sheagles’ are 6-1 I’m their last seven games. We will score more than 3 points on Sunday.

  43. cmonpos says: Dec 24, 2013 2:00 PM

    Jerry Jones is one of those Cowboys that’s all Hat but no cattle…

    Good luck on Sunday Cowgirls, the Eagles will fly home with your cheerleaders.

    With an immobile 55 year old quarterback on Prozac, a high school defense and an offensive line only a clown could be proud of; you folks might as well sit out on this one.

    If you do show up for a football game, y’all will be really asking fa truble

  44. jasongentile says: Dec 24, 2013 2:03 PM

    And why not? Time to get someone like Lovie Smith in there. This defense needs a complete overhaul.

  45. sidelineshot says: Dec 24, 2013 2:16 PM

    America’s Team owned and ran by a museum wax figure.

  46. sportsfan18 says: Dec 24, 2013 3:23 PM

    Jerry is pleased with how Garrett has learned to be his puppet.

    Jerry doesn’t want to have to begin all over again training a new head puppet.

  47. chrisedmond says: Dec 25, 2013 10:33 PM

    I am a big Cowboys fan. Don’t be surprised if Jerry brings Garrett back. Romo getting hurt will be his reason to bring Garrett back. Wish both of them would just leave.
