Jerry Jones Blasts Cowboys Coaching Following Loss to Patriots

Last night may have been the lowest point, so far, in the relationship between Owner and . Following Dallas' 13-9 loss to the , Jones lambasted the team's and showed frustration like he never has since Garrett became coach in 2010.

Jerry didn't just make one comment, two, or even five. It was a full-scale rant; a public airing of grievances about the way his team is being coached and the lack of results from what he sees as a talented roster.

As the following collection of tweets from Dallas media shows, Mr. Jones wasn't pulling any punches.

How many times this season have we complained about coaching decisions? While the Cowboys players have hurt themselves with turnovers and miscues at times, or with costly and controversial , it's also been a bad season for situational coaching.

Special teams play has been especially atrocious. Once a strength of the team, special teams performance has dropped steadily since took over in 2018 after Rich Bisaccia jumped ship for the Raiders.

Two weeks ago in Minnesota, the communication breakdown between Garrett, O'Quinn, and on a punt return might have cost Dallas the game. Yesterday in New England, a blocked punt and other blunders may have been the difference again.

But Jerry's frustration hardly stops with special teams. He had plenty to say about more far-reaching coaching deficiencies.

Jerry Jones is tired of watching his team get outclassed on the sidelines. Granted, almost any coaching staff would get shown up by . But what happened yesterday speaks to the greater pattern of failure and disappointment that has existed in Dallas for some time.

The Cowboys will never win another championship, or even compete for one, if they can't start beating the top teams in football. Consistently losing crucial games that decide whether or not you make the or advance in them is the sign that a team has hit the wall.

Jason Garrett's East aren't good enough anymore. For while, Jerry was content with a coach who could dominate the division and give Dallas a consistent shot at making the tournament. But now he sees that Garrett may have maxed out as a coach; never able to push past the “slightly above average” point and make something special happen.

Aye, there's the rub.

Jerry Jones is now talking as the , frustrated with what Jason Garrett and the coaching staff is doing with the roster he and his team assembled. And if you go back to the days of and Jerry's longstanding bitterness over who got credit for building the Cowboys' dynasty of the 1990s, then you can see why his frustration has reached a boiling point.

Jerry wants a ring that isn't attached to Jimmy Johnson. He already suffered the lost opportunities of the Era and his tolerance for failure appears to be at a breaking point.

With proving he's one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL this season, Jones is ready to go all-in on this roster. And if Jason Garrett doesn't do something quickly to convince Jerry that he's a coach who can get the job done, regime change is coming to the Cowboys very quickly.

If it wasn't already official that Garrett was coaching for his life, last night confirmed it.
