Sacking Garrett would give Cowboys ´zero chance´ of winning Super Bowl – Jones

November 29 2019 4:35 AM

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said there will be no coaching change as pressure intensifies on Jason Garrett following Thursday's loss to the Buffalo Bills.

The struggling Cowboys (6-6) lost for the sixth time in nine NFL games – beaten 26-15 by the in-form Bills in Dallas on Thanksgiving.

While the Cowboys remain top of the NFC East, Dallas' latest defeat has opened the door for rivals the Philadelphia Eagles.

However, Jones is sticking with Garrett – who has served as head coach since 2011 – in his pursuit of a Super Bowl.

"This is not the time for me [to make a coaching change]," Jones told reporters post-game. "I'm looking ahead at another ballgame. I'm looking ahead at winning four or five straight and helping write a story they will talk about, how it looks like you're down and out.

"And I mean that. That's the way that I'm operating. Every decision that I make over the next month will be with an eye in mind to get us in the Super Bowl now."

"I wouldn't make a change and give us a chance to do what I want to dream about doing. I wouldn't do that for love nor money," Jones said. "It would give us zero chance if we didn't have [Garrett]."

Jones added: "I'm going to get up in the morning, and I'm going to look for ways [to help], and I'm not going to panic. I'm going to look for ways to improve the situation. I'm still glad that when I get up in the morning, I can look for ways to help our team. One of them is not a coaching change. One of them is not reworking the offense or the defense.

"Those aren't alternatives for us to be ready to play over the next month and give us a chance to be what we want to be. But if we stay healthy and other contenders might not, and all of a sudden we start gelling, and we start getting some turnovers, then those games will turn out differently. I like our bet there. I do, even though we haven't played well the last three games. I like our bet.

"As I said, nobody is satisfied with how we played even when we played Detroit. That's not taking away from anything, but we can play better, and if we can play better, we've still got the base health of this team and we've got the personnel that we can put out there and we've got some coaches, generally coaches here, that I believe in. It's not working the way they’d thought it’d work, or I'd thought it'd work, but I believe in these coaches to be here to begin with."
