"No. Just no. Again, I don't step out of the dressing room and evaluate the coaching position at all", said Jones, when asked about the job security of Garrett and the staff. And certainly I appreciate, not only the President, but I want everybody to be a fan of the Dallas Cowboys and I want to do everything I can to make them a fan of the Cowboys or the NFL.

The Cowboys sophomore signal caller says he's never been as frustrated as he is now, calling it his toughest stretch ever as a quarterback, "I don't know how many it is, five or six turnovers in two games", he said. This is all a part of what I've been talking about with the commissioner, and certainly I appreciate not only the President, but I want everybody to be a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Prescott was sacked twice, bringing the total to 14 sacks in the last three games, more than the 10 sacks the Cowboys surrendered in the first eight games of the season.

Jones also spoke with reporters after the game and went to great lengths to say he was not giving Jason Garrett and the rest of the Cowboys' coaching staff a phony-baloney vote of confidence.

His decision comes 24 hours after the compensation committee denied Jones' request that all National Football League team owners be included in a final vote for the commissioner's contract.

Jones said similar things about Wade Phillips in 2010 before firing him after a 45-7 loss to Green Bay Packers and a 1-7 start, one year after winning a playoff game for the first time since 2006.

"Dez is actually, from the standpoint of being to excel, is a better player", Jones told 105.3 The Fan Dallas on Friday.

The slide hasn't reflected well on the coaches, with the Cowboys outscored 72-6 in the second half of the three losses. I think Jason is able to use everything that he's learned, as coordinator, as coach over these last years, and we've just got to get it together.

Facebook to show if some fell for Russian Federation propaganda
Throughout 2017, Facebook has responded to a series of revelations related to fake users and flawed metrics on the social network. US lawmakers called the announcement a positive step. "And it's also why we're building the tool we are announcing today".

Jones is admittedly shocked the Cowboys haven't done better without Elliott.

The New York Giants battled the Washington Redskins on Thursday night.

Then again, Jerry has always lived in a world of gum drops and lollipops when it comes to the Cowboys.

"Obviously we've got to get it right", Garrett said.

Now they might be looking to flip-flop double-digit wins and double-digit loss seasons for the fourth consecutive year. "That's my job. That's our job as a coaching staff".

Jones was so upset with the ruling of the Elliott case that he reportedly told Goodell "I'm gonna come after you with everything I have. We just haven't done enough on either side of the ball or in the kicking game to allow us to compete toward the end of the ballgame". "Candidly, I'm really not shaken".

In his seventh full season, Garrett is 63-52 in the regular season. "I'm disappointed, but there's no shake".
