Jason Garrett reportedly will finish season as Cowboys’ head coach

  Jason Garrett reportedly will finish season as Cowboys’ head coach Jerry Jones has always pushed back against midseason firings. With his Cowboys still in first place, that makes a lot of sense. Let’s see how the season plays out before drawing a final conclusion. A separate report earlier on Thursday indicated that barring a deep run in the playoffs, Garrett will not be back in Dallas. One potential candidate has emerged if there’s a coaching change.Garrett boasts a 83-64 record in nine-plus seasons as the Cowboys’ head coach. He has yet to lead Dallas beyond the NFC divisional playoffs during that span.

The Dallas Cowboys are mad after losing two games in a row, and players’ anger boiled over during a chippy practice as the team began preparing for its upcoming game against the Chicago Bears. Elliott said that anger spilled on the practice field with some trash talking and chippy play.

Things are getting hairy within the Dallas Cowboys locker room, but in what they hope will turn out Elliott went on to note how practice has taken on a different tone this week, and one indicative of a After all, anger can be a great fuel to drive success, but only if you know how to remove the gas cap.

The NFC East is having such a down season that even at 6-6 the Dallas Cowboys are still leading the division.

But 6-6 is not where this team thought it would be, not this season.

‘It was a little chippy’

After an embarrassing Thanksgiving home loss to the Buffalo Bills, the Cowboys returned to the practice field on Sunday to prepare for another Thursday game this week, against the Chicago Bears — and it seems like they took out some of their frustrations on each other.

Jerry Jones sidesteps questions about Dak Prescott’s contract

  Jerry Jones sidesteps questions about Dak Prescott’s contract Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t seem to be in a great mood following last week’s mistake-filled loss to the New England Patriots. After said loss, Jones did not exactly go to bat for head coach Jason Garrett. He’s now turning his attention to star quarterback Dak Prescott.When asked about the status of a Prescott extension on NFL Network Wednesday morning, Jones sidestepped the question.

After starting 3-0 and losing six of their last nine games, Cowboys players are angry.

“Yeah, angry,” Ezekiel Elliott said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Angry we’re not where we expected ourselves to be. Just angry that things haven’t been going the way we want them to go. We’ve got to channel that the right way. Come in like we did today, go to work and trust the process, go out there and play better football.”

During practice, there was trash talking and some guys giving a little...extra.

“Practice was good,” Elliott said. “Great energy. Guys were on their stuff. Guys had a little stuff in their neck. It was a little chippy. Ready to go.”

But the running back downplayed any issues.

“Yeah, that’s what you expect. That’s the type of team we are; that’s how we’re built. We’ve just got to figure out a way to go out there and play better,” he said. “No confidence loss. We know, in this locker room, what we need to do. We need to go out there and play better football. We need to go out there and execute better. It’s been the same story all year. We’ve just got to figure it out.”

With Jerry Jones still angry, frustrated, would Jason Garrett survive loss to Bills?

ARLINGTON, Texas - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones went scorched earth on coach Jason Garrett and his staff after Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots. But Jones said he never thought about making a coaching change with Garrett. Will he feel the same way if the Cowboys lose to the Buffalo Bills at AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving Day? Might a change come then? Time will tell. But what's But Jones said he never thought about making a coaching change with Garrett.

Understanding anger Anger is a very powerful emotion that many have many causes. Anger is often used as a defence for some other feelings. Rather, they are fun activities offering learning opportunities. It is useful to have a brief discussion about anger and other feelings after each activity.

Claiborne was on the sidelines the final part of practice after cramping up, but said it’s not a serious issue that will force him to miss time. Meanwhile, tight end Jason Witten applauded the competitiveness of the two players on the first day with pads on and in a full team practice .

‘It’s really crunch time’

The chippiness in practice comes after veteran Michael Bennett, who came to Dallas just a few weeks ago after a trade from New England, was overheard shouting at teammates in the locker room after the loss to Buffalo.

Bennett was trying to encourage his fellow Cowboys, highlighting that they have great players but need to do a better job executing, especially under duress.

Elliott got the message.

“I mean, we need to start to get this going now,” he said. “Not many games left. It’s really crunch time now. We’ve got to win some ballgames. What I do know is we’ve got to go out there and play better.”

Bennett delivered the message, but he wasn’t the only one having those thoughts.

“We’re better than we’ve been. We’ve got the right group of guys in the locker room. We’ve just got to put that on the table,” Elliott said. “He said something we were all thinking. It was good to hear from him. We’ve just got to apply it.”

Dallas leads the division, but isn’t playing the way it needs to play to live up to its own expectations.

“We just haven’t played good football,” Elliott said. “I mean, that’s all it comes down to. Everyone wants to try to find out what’s wrong. I’ll tell you what’s wrong. We just haven’t played good football. We haven’t gone out there and executed as a team. Until we do that, it’s going to be tough to win ballgames.”
