Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has shown plenty of confidence in head coach Jason Garrett, despite the team’s past struggles, and he continues to show his strong belief that Garrett could be the man to lead this team to a Super Bowl win.

Jones believes that Garrett is still young enough and open to change, that he is continuing to evolve as a coach and the best is still ahead of him.

“He’s a young coach, and one of the things you’ve got to remember, that you should remember, is that, as a young coach, your system should be evolving,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “There shouldn’t be a system that you’ve hung on for years and years and years. Ernie Zampese, for instance. Jason’s fresh in his evolving, as far as scheme is concerned.”

Pump the brakes, Jerry.

Garrett is 47 years old and has been around the NFL for years. By now, he should know who he is as a coach and he has shown that. Garrett is a coach that struggled with play calling and was unable to get the offense to play up to the level their talented roster suggests they could. Perhaps the real reason Garrett is so loved by Jones is that he is easily influenced and allows the owner to have his say.

The good news for Garrett, however, is that the team is finally beginning to find it’s groove.

Dallas looks like the cream of the crop in the NFC East and they have looked like a team that could do some damage in the postseason in large part because of their improved defense.

It’s the perfect time for the Cowboys to turn things around and it looks like Garrett will remain in control for the foreseeable future.
