Jason Garrett continues to downplay questions about his future with Cowboys

Jason Garrett

There is a legitimate possibility that Jason Garrett has only one game remaining with the Dallas Cowboys, but the head coach insists he is as focused as ever on the task at hand.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has all but confirmed that Garrett will not be receiving a contract extension if the team does not make a deep run in the playoffs. Dallas is now 7-8 on the season and facing elimination, but Garrett told reporters on Thursday that he is not thinking about Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins potentially being his last with the organization.

The seat underneath Garrett could not have been hotter entering Week 16, and then the Cowboys lost their biggest game of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles. Like many of their other losses this year, there were plenty of questionable coaching decisions in the game.

There’s still a chance the Cowboys could make the playoffs, but they would need to beat Washington and have a ton of other things go their way. While Garrett could probably still save his job if Dallas somehow comes alive and makes it to at least the NFC Championship Game, the odds are stacked against him more now than they ever have been.
