Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman did an interview with The Musers on 1310 The Ticket [KTCK-AM] and said that head coach Jason Garrett is doing whatever owner Jerry Jones wants him to do. “That’s essentially what happened, or at least that’s the way it looks,” Aikman said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Jerry comes out and says there are going to be a lot of changes this off-season and everyone’s going to be uncomfortable, I didn’t hear a comment from Jason Garrett with regards to that. I didn’t hear him say that during his post-game press conference or postseason press conference. “So yeah, it’s got the look and feel as though Jerry’s making these decisions and I don’t know that that’s necessarily good. When you’re making staff changes and whether Jason’s on board with that or not on board with that I really have no idea. I think the difficult things is that this was a team the last two years that played in the last game of the season and went into Week 17 with a chance to win a division. If they win the last game of the year, they win the division. I just wonder if they had won one or both of those games if we would be looking at this team differently. And I think that we would, even if they didn’t win in the postseason.” Aikman doesn’t see how the coaching changes the Cowboys have made will help them win. “I haven’t seen anything up to this point that’s been done that makes me believe that this team is going to be better based on the changes that have happened within staff.” “Maybe the plays will be called a little bit differently,” Aikman said. “Maybe there will be a little bit more emphasis on running the football, but I don’t think that we’re going to look at this offense and really have a different feel than we had under Jason. It’s going to be the same guys out there running the plays. It’s going to be the same type of stuff, so I don’t know. I don’t know what kind of difference it makes. I don’t know exactly what they’re anticipating being different. You want to score more points, but that’ll be a wait-and-see. I don’t know what will happen there.” I agree with Aikman, until Jones steps aside and brings in a general manager that can put together a well balanced roster he’ll keep falling short.  it also doesn’t help that Jones doesn’t empower Garrett as the head coach.  The players simply don’t respect him.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
