Team owner Jerry Jones said he has no plans to fire head coach Jason Garrett any time soon.
Luckily for all involved, a machine which gives fans the opportunity to snap a picture with their gridiron heroes has been installed in the lobby of the 80,000-seater stadium, and footage from it has prompted football fans of all creeds and loyalties to admit that it is incredibly impressive. Prescott is set to be a free agent after this season, but the Cowboys want to lock him up long term; if they don't get a deal done by next March, they will use the franchise tag to keep him. Garrett's contract expires following the 2019 season.
Dak Prescott might be in big trouble soon as he has been missing his game for the past two weeks. "I've seen guys' knees buckle when they get in that spot. It's not impacting that with me at all", Jones said.
The Jets will have their quarterback back this week. Prescott completed his first couple of passes as the offense gained 37 yards on it's first three plays, putting them very close to field goal position. Jones was optimistic Collins could play despite a sprained MCL.
"Just hang in there with us", Jones added.
Justifiably agitated with the result against Green Bay, Jones took a tough-love approach with Prescott and Co., muttering frustration during the game and pulling zero verbal punches in his postgame remarks.
Jones is all but confirming that Garrett will remain the coach through the season. And we're confident in the players we have and confident in what we can do but sometimes you have to know that it's the work that gets the wins.
That said, it feels incredibly premature to speculate about Garrett's job status, given the Cowboys' 3-2 record and their top-ranked offense.
