Was upset of Saints a job saver for Cowboys' Jason Garrett? Sure sounds like it
After Thursday night, he’s going to be sticking around in Dallas in 2019. Let the conflicting emotions in Cowboys Nation commence.
Little more than a month ago, Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys were under siege. They were losing games, hearing criticism from many corners after trading a first-round pick for a seemingly underachieving receiver, and even a franchise legend Jones is all too happy to say “ I told you so .”
On Sunday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said players who “disrespect the flag” wouldn’t play. On Wednesday, ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported After that demonstration, Jones said after the game, “ I But now? Jones is all too happy to say “ I told you so .” ‘ I can’t tell you how pleased I am’.
Little more than a month ago, Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys were under siege. They were losing games, hearing criticism from many corners after trading a first-round pick for a seemingly underachieving receiver, and even a franchise legend was knocking the team’s owner and general manager.
But now? Jones is all too happy to say “I told you so.”
‘I can’t tell you how pleased I am’
On Oct. 22, Jones woke up at the start of the Cowboys’ bye week with the team 3-4, having lost on the road to Washington the day before. There were once again calls for coach Jason Garrett to be fired.
ESPN reports Cowboys asked Jason Witten to leave the booth and come back

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has made multiple attempts to coax Witten out of retirement, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. So far, Witten has said no. With each passing [more]
Although Jerry Jones told media he won't fire Jason Garrett in-season, the Cowboys head coach shouldn't get too comfortable. MANSFIELD, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys are 3-5, and it's safe to say fans aren't happy with how the season has turned out so far.
Jones said players who “disrespect the flag” won’t play. A Cowboys player told ESPN’s Josina Per sources, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones plans to meet with his team on the anthem this The Hawks really quadruple-teamed James Harden on the final play to end his 30-point streak Atlanta held him
That day, Jones made a bold move:to the Oakland Raiders to acquire receiver Amari Cooper. The price was steep, particularly since Cooper, the No. 4 pick in the 2015 draft, was coming off a disappointing 2017 season and wasn’t off to a great start in 2018 either.
But Jones felt it was worth it.
Cooperin the week-plus between being traded and Dallas’ first post-bye game, against Tennessee. Neither he nor the Cowboys did much in that Monday night game, with Cooper having five catches for 58 yards and Dallas losing to fall to 3-5.
Since then, however, everything looks different.
Cooper has 35 catches for 584 yards and five touchdowns in the five games since, and Dallas has won all five. The 6-foot-1 receiver had huge games on Thanksgiving, in the rematch with Washington, and last Sunday, when he scored the overtime walkoff touchdown against the Eagles.
Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett say Cowboys did not reach out to Jason Witten to return
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett shot down an ESPN report that the team reached out to former tight end Jason Witten and tried to lure him out of the ESPN Monday Night Football broadcast booth where he serves as an analyst.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a radio interview Tuesday that his team has not quit during its recent three-game losing skid. Jones also continued to support coach Jason Garrett, explaining that Garrett has evolved as a coach and is So what the heck are we waiting for, Coach Shanahan?
Jones told reporters that any player who disrespects the national anthem will not be allowed to play for the Dallas Cowboys . "If there is anything disrespecting "We cannot in anyway give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag," Jones said , according to George. "We know that there is a
“I can’t tell you how pleased I am from our fans to everybody involved that he is such a complete player for us,” Jones said,of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “When you see him not make much, not have many plays, not have many targets early and then turn around and change the game like that then you realize what kind of impact that he can have. So I’m proud for everybody out there. The first thing I saw Dak (Prescott) smiling and said, ‘Boy, we like that Cooper, buddy!’
“So it’s a good feeling. That is far cry from a month ago isn’t it on a house cleaning … on a house cleaning.”
Jones laughed when he repeated “house cleaning.”
‘The desire to excel is to show them’
On Nov. 7, after the loss to the Titans, Troy Aikman, who was the quarterback on three Super Bowl-winning teams for Dallas,.
“And there’s been times where I’ve heard Jerry say, ‘OK, look, we’re going to do it differently,” Aikman said. “‘I’m going to do it differently.’ But it’s the same. Nothing changes. And that to me is the bigger issue, beyond, ‘Yes, coaching’s important, personnel, all those things are important, but how are you going about evaluating? How are you going about running the organization?”
Jason Witten denies Jason Garrett was trying to get him out of booth, back on Cowboys
On Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett had made “multiple attempts” to lure Jason Witten out of retirement and re-join the team. Former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, now an ESPN broadcaster, denied a report that the Cowboys have been trying to lure him back to the field. Witten surprised many earlier this year when he retired to accept ESPN’s offer to be the color analyst for “Monday Night Football.” The 11-time Pro Bowler’s transition to broadcasting hasn’t been smooth, but it’s certainly easier on a 36-year-old body than playing NFL tight end.

“He told me if the Cowboys lose, I really want to write a letter,” his mother, Kayla Jimenez, said with a laugh. “So, I was like OK." Rylan Wood, 7, penned a letter to Jerry Jones on notebook paper. The handwriting is a little squiggly and Jimenez helped with the spelling of some words, but the finished
Aikman said that he spoke to people still at the team facility on a regular basis and added, “In a lot of ways, there’s a lot of dysfunction.”
There may still be dysfunction, but as we’ve seen so many times before, nothing covers it up like winning.
Jones said he understood why others were being critical.
“I completely understand when I was getting criticized and there was talk about cleaning house,” he said. “I completely understood that. You have to win games. Jason Garrett needs to win some games and win some playoff games and he will be thought of in a way that I want him to be thought of as a coach. It’s the same things I have been criticized for. You got to show it. If you can’t do that you are going to always be criticized. You just got stay in there and get with it.”
But he’s happy he’s proving them wrong now.
“I think a big part of doing things with the desire to excel is to show them,” Jones said. “I think that’s a major motivating factor, to show them. I think the way sports and football is — it just gives you a chance when people say ‘I don’t like that move, that’s not smart.’ I like this stuff. As a matter of fact, I make my worst grades when I’m being praised.”

Mac Engel: Face it, Cowboys' Dak Prescott is going to get paid big money.
Neither the Dallas Cowboys nor their fans want Dak Prescott to be Andy Dalton , but both the team and their legion of followers should all hope their quarterback agrees to a contract similar to that of the former TCU star. Much like Dalton four years ago, Prescott is about to get big money. No player in the NFL right now is more polarizing than our Dak, whom no one can agree is good enough to be the difference in a playoff game, and potentially a Super Bowl. He is either a good, improving young passer who will "get there," but needs "good coaching.
