Its Jason Garrett’s show now and he better make the best of it, owner Jerry Jones said in so many words. Jones had been vocal about making changes that would get the Cowboys over the hump, but now those changes are Garrett’s, and so are the consequences. There are some that think Garrett is a dead man walking, the gutting of his staff was a foreshadowing of Garrett’s future. The only thing that will save him is winning, because Jones already sounds like he’s eyeing his next head coach. Whenever someone speaks in the tone of “He’s calling the shots, not me,” Jones is distancing himself from Garrett and his choices. “He could have very easily come back to me and say, ‘I’m going to call plays on game day,’ or, ‘I’m going to let Bill call plays on game day and I’ll be on the sideline vetoing or saying OK and let somebody else do the game planning,’” Jones said, via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com.  “That’s what’s being worked out.  Whatever he comes up with is the way we’re going to go.
