Jones Offer Lukewarm Support For Garrett

When I, this year, made a decision to go with a younger makeup of the coaching staff - I decided that - I felt strongly that we could go and do that. He's aiming to prompt a fairy-tale Super Bowl run this season, he said, and without Garrett, "we have zero chance".

The Cowboys will visit the Chicago Bears (also 6-6) on Thursday night, while the Eagles will host the New York Giants on Monday.

Garrett has been under fire for weeks - if not years - but Jones has continually ignored fans' pleas for a coaching change. The 30-year-old missed two field goals in Thursday's Thanksgiving loss to the Buffalo Bills and has three botches in the last two games. "Start right there. He is a good coach". Still, despite Jones' words this week, his previous words in post-game speeches about the role coaching played in his frustrations should be seen as more indicative of how he feels.

Reporters know better by now than to expect a straightforward answer from Garrett.

Garrett offers a safety net, the owner said, for young coaches like offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. I had a wonderful opportunity to spend a football life with him, so I know him very well, "said Jerry Jones, in the Dallas Morning News". "Those three guys did a nice job for us, but Brett is going to be our kicker going forward", Garrett said.

Samsung Galaxy A51 , in all likelihood, will be launched first since it has already been spotted on various certification sites. Written at the bottom of the poster is the name "Galaxy A 2020", followed by the phone's inaugural launch date.

Despite the rumors of Garrett's lame-duck status, Jones said he does not believe the coach has lost the team.

Jones did an interview on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday and said that while he'd seen a list of rumored candidates to coach the Cowboys next season should Garrett be fired, "they can't guarantee me or my fans a Super Bowl". "When I say that, I don't mean that there's not a level of a point where I determined it's just not working or determined that it's working".

"Nobody has the exclusive skills to get the job done so that collectively you can win a Super Bowl", Jones said.

The question isn't whether or not Garrett will be a head coach next year.

Dallas are a game ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles in the race for the NFC East title and, despite recent results, Jones is still confident about the outlook for the Cowboys for the rest of the year.
