Jerry Jones does not back down from criticism of Jason Garrett, Cowboys coaches

Jerry Jones

Jerry Jones has had a couple of days to think about the comments he made about his coaching staff following Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots, and the Dallas Cowboys owner is standing by what he said.

During his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan, Jones said he felt no differently on Tuesday than he did on Sunday. However, he made sure to take responsibility for some of the struggles the Cowboys have had this season by pointing out that he is the general manager of the team. He also reiterated that he is not considering making any in-season coaching changes.

Jane Slater, who covers the Cowboys for NFL Network, seemed surprised by how “intense” Jones was in the interview.

Jones has always gone out of his way to publicly support Jason Garrett, which is why it was somewhat surprising when he publicly criticized him following a tight road loss to one of the best teams in the NFL. However, the Cowboys made some inexcusable coaching blunders in the game that Troy Aikman even noticed during the broadcast, so you can understand Jones’ frustration despite the team’s 6-5 record.

Garrett is very clearly on the hot seat, and Jones is now essentially willing to confirm that. While he didn’t say a whole lot with his response to questions about the criticism from his boss, Garrett knows the Cowboys have to close out the year strong in order for him to earn a contract extension.
