When it comes to Jerry Jones it’s important to expect the unexpected.
The eccentric owner of the Dallas Cowboys loves making headlines, but he has assured everyone that one headline he won’t be making a change at head coach, as he confirmed that Jason Garrett will be back for the 2014 season.
Jones spoke to reporters per ESPN: "I'm disappointed that we don't have a better record, but he has got us in position to win the division and has got a team here that I firmly believe has the ability to be one of the better-playing teams at the end".
Over Garrett’s tenure in Dallas his record is 26-25 and the Cowboys currently sit at 5-5 in a weak NFC East. His record illustrates how distinctly average the Cowboys have been in recent times, something Jerry Jones is not used too.
Jones is not only the owner, but also the general manager of the Cowboys. He positioned himself in this manner in order to make himself the orchestrator of more Super Bowl wins to go along with the three rings he collected in the 90’s. Jones is infamous for making any dramatic change he deems necessary in order for the Cowboys to win.
However Garrett was specifically chosen for the head coach role by Jones and the owner clearly wants his team to succeed under him. However the Cowboys have once again underperformed this season and if they once again fail to make the playoffs all bets are off, regardless of the endorsements Jones makes now.
It’s easy to commit when hope for a post season appearance is realistic but it’s hard to imagine Jones’ not reacting to another failed season.
