Jerry Jones' Jason Garrett endorsement comes with conspicuous omission

Bears open as 2.5-point underdogs vs. Cowboys in Week 14

Cowboys proprietor Jerry Jones is a defendant of Jason Garrett's credentials. Jerry was a bit more vague. Ignorance is a bliss for the Cowboys' leader, who has mastered the art of coaching speech during his decade-long reign in Dallas. Is there more context? Yes. They've been calling for the firing of Jason Garrett although Jones has been quite adamant about that not happening. In my opinion, Jason Garrett will train in the National Football League next year.

The Cowboys will visit the Chicago Bears (also 6-6) on Thursday night, while the Eagles will host the New York Giants on Monday.

For 2019, at least, Jones has made clear he believes Garrett gives his team the best chance to win. After the Cowboys fell to the Patriots in Week 12, Jones said "I shouldn't be this frustrated" considering the makeup of the team and pointed the finger elsewhere, saying "I don't think there's a game where a coaching staff couldn't do better".

But following an embarrassing loss to the Buffalo Bills, Jones began singing a different, more optimistic tune when many thought he would be ready to make an in-season coaching change.

Despite the rumors of Garrett's lame-duck status, Jones said he does not believe the coach has lost the team. "He is the guy for the job". "When I say that, I do not mean that there is not a level where I have determined that it just did not work or that I was too".


Jones did an interview on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday and said that while he'd seen a list of rumored candidates to coach the Cowboys next season should Garrett be fired, "they can't guarantee me or my fans a Super Bowl".

"Nobody has the exclusive skills to get the job done so that collectively you can win a Super Bowl", Jones said.

With the Cowboys still in first place in the NFC East, Jones said Garrett was the right man to lead the team on a redemption tour over the final four games of the season and make a run to the Super Bowl. But there are many things. Tuesday, Jones said he doesn't view Garrett's case for a next contract as dependent on ending the Cowboys' 23-year conference championship game drought or another specific postseason accomplishment.

"Jason Garrett checks a lot of positive boxes when you start looking at head coaches and the aptitude and quality of coach".
