Jerry Jones won’t talk about coaching staff changes

The Dallas Cowboys were dominated by the New Orleans Saints in every corner of the game on Sunday Night. When Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones went on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], he was anticipating their questions about coaching changes. Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin has proven to be a huge mistake, and switching the play-calling duties to Bill Callahan hasn’t exactly worked out either. Jones wasn’t ready to comment on any coaching changes though.

“You can say it any way you want to, I’m not even going to address, really I’m not, coaching staff as to whether they’re safe or whether they’re not,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Obviously, what have we got, three or four days this week and then we go into next week. We’re 5-5. We’re tied for the lead in our division. We’ve got players coming back. We’ve got one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League. We’re off a rough loss. That doesn’t call for major changes out here at all.”

The Cowboys are limping into a bye week with injuries every where on their team. They can use the bye to heal and work on game plans.

“You need to probably man up more in the secondary than we’ve been doing than relying on zone,” Jones said, “because if we can’t get pressure, and we’re relying on the traditional zone as you might mentally picture it, then that’s a recipe for what happened to us the other night.”

    Jones’ football knowledge and management abilities are seriously flawed.

    I read, then re-read Jones’s quotes in this story. I’m not sure the man is completely lucid. Or, he’s talking out of the side of his mouth.

    With the exception of the track suits and greasy hair, Jones is acting and sounding more like Al Davis every time he shows up in front of a camera or microphone.

    After what we’ve experienced so far this season, right now is, in fact, the perfect time to consider a coaching change.

    This team isn’t working and the fault is now all on Jerry Jones for the way he’s mismanaged it!

      Well remember, it was Al Davis that took Jerry Jones under his wing when he was a new owner.
