Jerry Jones insists he will not fire Jason Garrett during season
Frustrated Dallas Cowboys fans are out for blood after the team’s Thanksgiving loss at home to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, but Jerry Jones is not prepared to give them that satisfaction.
Jones stood by head coach Jason Garrett after the 26-15 loss and said he was not going to make a coaching change. Jones added he believes the team can still make a deep playoff run despite being 6-6.
Jerry Jones is emotional while talking to reporters. Tears in his eyes. “I’m not going to make a coaching change.” Jones said he still believes this team can make a deep playoff run. He said they have zero chance of doing that without Jason Garrett

Jones’ words came after an ESPN report earlier in the day said Jones would not fire Garrett during the season.
The Cowboys have lost three of four, and Garrett seems to be pressing. After not going for a key fourth down at the end of the 13-9 loss to the Patriots, Garrett went for it twice against Buffalo, including once in the third quarter when the situation was not as dire compared to the one against New England. Jones did not have a good reaction to it.
Dallas’ remaining games are: at Chicago, home vs. the Rams, at Philly and home vs. the Redskins to finish the season. They might have to go 3-1 — and beat the Eagles — in order to win the division. That does seem doable despite their recent run.
