Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones is not taking an emotional ride each week with the futures of head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Dak Prescott.
As good as things appeared during the Cowboys’ 3-0 start to the season, Jones is not ready to change his expectations for his team after two straight losses to the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers.
“Everything is here to have success on the field and we just need to get out here and play better,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.
With the Washington Redskins firing Jay Gruden after an 0-5 start, one oddsmaker has made Garrett the second-favorite to be let go in-season behind Atlanta’s Dan Quinn.
Jones, who has made one in-season head-coaching change when he elevated Garrett to Wade Phillips’ spot in 2010, dispelled that possibility.
“Don’t bet any money [on] that happening,” Jones said. “You’ll lose it.”
Garrett does not have a contract beyond 2019 and is in a must-win situation to return in 2020. Prescott is set to be a free agent after this season, but the Cowboys want to lock him up long-term and if they don’t get a deal done by next March will use the franchise tag to keep him.
