Jerry Jones: Jason Garrett Isn’t Coaching For His Job In 2013


Like Mikhail Prokhorov said of himself, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is a result oriented person. The Dallas Cowboys ever have hung around at .500 for 3 seasons and missed the playoffs for three straight seasons. So if the Cowboys go a 4th season without making it into the playoffs, Dallas media think that Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett could be on the chopping block.

“It’s a mistake” to think that, Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “That’s not right.”

He spun it by saying that Garrett is just as disappointed in the lack of success as he is. It is that quality that Jones likes about Garrett, his response to ‘unsatisfactory times.’

“If you’re in close here, you see how Jason is responding to obviously unsatisfactory times,” Jones said. “And I can tell you first hand, that’s impressive. I like that, as far as looking ahead to the future. It is very good.”

And Jones made it a point to clarify that he was only focused on week 1.

“Everything I’m thinking about is not only about how to beat the Giants when we open up but also what our future is in a plus manner or a positive way, with Jason,” Jones said. “I look to the future with Jason. And not just through his contract that we’re sitting here with right now. He’s got a couple of years left on his contract. That’s not a thought.”
