Jerry Jones seems confident in the job Jason Garrett is doing.

Things are going well for the Dallas Cowboys. Obviously there’s still a whole lot left to accomplish in terms of the ultimate goal, but coming off of a playoff win is a nice place to be.

Truthfully things have been going well for some time for the Cowboys. They’ve only lost two games since trading for Amari Cooper and that happened during the final days of October for goodness sake. There’s a big date against the Los Angeles Rams this Saturday night, another win keeps the season alive.

What about next season, though? What about beyond that? The status of Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has been one of much discussion over the course of the season and a week before that Cooper trade the idea of a Jason Garrett extension was tossed out. Is that something that could legitimately happen?

Jerry Jones was on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday morning and offered this when asked about a potential Jason Garrett extension.

Look at the situation and how positive it is... if you were in my shoes, what would you do?

Jerry has a point to be honest. Take away the name on his office door and many teams would be lining up to extend a coach that took a 3-5 team to a 10-6 record with one playoff win and continued life. The Cowboys believe in Jason Garrett and that was proven to all of us over the course of the last few months.

Garrett’s current deal runs through 2019 so it’s not like the Cowboys have to make a decision any time soon. Be prepared for something to potentially happen though, especially if the ride continues after a win on Saturday night.
