If you ask any Dallas Cowboys fan they’ll tell you that Jason Garrett was on the hot seat before the Cowboys kicked off in Houston, and many would say he was sitting there before they kicked off the season as a whole in Carolina. Last week’s game turned up the heat, though.
With a decision to punt on 4th and 1 on the Houston 42-yard line in overtime last week, Jason Garrett isolated a large contingency of whatever supporters that he had left. People felt the move helped lead to a Cowboys loss and that’s one you never want your head coach to make. While supporters do seem to be fleeing, there is one who is battening down the hatches and he’s the one who really counts - Jerry Jones.
Jerry has long supported Jason Garrett time and time again throughout the almost-now eight full seasons that he’s been the head coach of the Cowboys. On the Friday after such vitriol and doubt, Jerry did it again during his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan, and he even added that he believes Garrett can still take the Cowboys to the promised land.
Does he have some things he could do better? Of course. But what we’ve got here is an asset that I think will get us to where we want to go and that’s a championship.
When talking about his head coach, Jerry Jones tried to make reference to the elite education that Garrett has. The world knows how Jason is a Princeton man, but Jerry Jones accidentally referred to it as Harvard and then joked about “whatever” kind of degree Jason earned.
The Dallas Cowboys are 2-3 entering their Week 6 date against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Philadelphia Eagles took care of the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football, and the Washington Redskins host the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. If Washington loses and Dallas wins, the Cowboys will be in first place in the NFC East.
Is that the first step down a championship road? Jerry Jones seems to think it’s possible, at least.
