Dallas’ staff appears to be safe — for now.
Despite the team’s 28-14 loss to the Titans on Monday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones assured there won’t be any coaching changes, giving a definitive “No!” to questions regarding the possible firing of coach Jason Garrett.
The Cowboys entered the game with a 3-4 record fresh off a bye and equipped with wide receiver Amari Cooper after acquiring him in a trade with the Raiders, but didn’t yield the results Jones expected.
When asked what disappointed him the most about the defeat, Jones said he was certain the Cowboys would come away with a win, as the team was undefeated at AT&T Stadium this season.
“I think the way that we had an opportunity to come in here at home and take some fresh legs and take some additions that we had made and I very candidly didn’t see this coming,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News.
“I thought we would be sitting here with a positive result. This is a surprise to me and is a setback. Now when you’re halfway through the season, losing a ballgame in the NFL if that causes you to be deterred or to not think that there’s a future ahead of you, then you’ve picked the wrong world to operate in. That’s not the life we’ve chosen.”
With a Sunday night showdown in Philadelphia looming in Week 10, the Cowboys will have to find a way to pull it together.
