Jerry Jones continues his delusion, stands behind Garrett
Jerry Jones started down the right track after the Dallas Cowboys missed the playoffs for the third consecutive year. He questioned everything, including the coaching. The only thing he was sure of was Tony Romo, because when you look out into the NFL horizon this year, there isn’t much better.
Now, he’s changing his tune and showing complete confidence in the puppet he created, Jason Garrett.
In a video posted at the team’s official website (via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram), “However he comes up with how he wants to design how the offense runs, coupled with the fact that we’ve made the changes defensively and with special teams, I’m going to be excited about it,” Jones said. “We’ve got the right man putting this together in Jason Garrett.”
Do they have the right man?
Jones already stripped Garrett’s play-calling authority, kicked his brother out of the door, and haven’t even replaced the fired members the offensive staff.
“Let me say this, I must say this: (Calling plays as head coach) has never been an issue with Jason Garrett. Never. That was his GM, that was me & by having him come in here as play-caller and doing that for the very first time.”

“I want him to work through, from my perspective, work through his interviews, sit down with how his staff might meld together, think about some of the philosophy, which is a part of this as well, because certain coaches could bring a certain addition to the kind of thinking that goes on back there with game plans and play-calling,” Jones said. “So all of that leads me to say, ‘No, I don’t have a timeframe.’ ”
If they have the right man why is Jerry Jones standing over his shoulder?
