Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasn’t pleased with his football team following Sunday’s 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots and in his comments after the game, he held nothing back.
“It’s frustrating to be reminded of the fundamentals of football and coaching that beat us out there,” Jones said h/t Fort Worth Star-Temegram. “They took advantage of the weather. There is no question they saw the ball was going to be hard to handle.
“There is no question (Belichick) put pressure on people returning the kicks and people handling the ball on special teams. There is no question that he used that to put some special emphasis on it. So yeah, I’m frustrated.”
When he was asked if he had ever been this frustrated with a team in first place, he answered: “With the makeup of this team, I shouldn’t be this frustrated.”
Jones’ comments come as head coach Jason Garrett’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season. As noted yesterday here on NFLNews.co, it’s possible Jones makes a coaching change if the Cowboys do not make a deep postseason run.
The comments also set the oddsmakers loose on predicting the team’s coach for Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season, which you can view at this link.
As for Garrett, word making way throughout the league is that if the Cowboys part ways with him, the New York Giants will look to hire him.
