The Dallas Cowboys won one of the ugliest and weirdest football games of the season on Monday night. At least how Jerry Jones sees it, the Cowboys ‘won off will, and not tactical mastery.” It’s been a long season for the Cowboys. At 4-8, with two major injuries to Tony Romo, Cowboys fans don’t have a lot to cheer about regarding this season. Usually, when your signal-caller and franchise player goes down for injury, the head coach normally gets a pass, but it looks as if Jerry Jones doesn’t see it that way.
Talking to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, Jones had this to say about the 2015 coaching staff:
“I am stunned that we haven’t been able to win more games without Tony… And I would have thought that we could have coached it up enough, and put it together enough, that we would not have lost those games without Romo early. We would be in better shape than we are right now.”
The comments are extremely surprising considering the injuries the Cowboys have been dealt with throughout the season. For a team that had Super Bowl aspirations going into the 2015 season, injuries really have turned this team into the bottom-feeder of the NFC East, even though they still find themselves just one game out of the division.
Despite Jones’ comments, Garrett is in the first year of a five-year deal. People have criticized Garrett before, but it should be said that Garrett’s at his best when he is managing the roster, growing the team, and letting his coordinators coach and his players play. Unfortunately for Garrett, Jones, and really Cowboys fans everywhere, he’s been without his best guy and it’s shown throughout the season.
