Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett met with the media as they kicked off training camp this week. He once again made it clear that Garrett isn’t coaching for his job this season.
“Well, I wouldn’t use the word fair. It’s a mistake, that’s not right,” Jones said, via NFL.com. ”One of the real opportunities we got here … (Garrett’s) been directly involved in the coaching of (Tony) Romo for six years. When he got here, Romo had never had the same guy two years in a row. We’re going to take advantage of that.”
Jones referred to Garrett as a “safety net” for Romo.
“If you’re in close here, you see how Jason is responding to obviously unsatisfactory times.” Jones said. “And I can tell you firsthand that’s impressive. So I like that as far as looking ahead at the future. It is very good. And so that everything I’m thinking about is not only about how to beat the Giants when we open up but also about what our future is in a positive way with Jason. And I look to the future with Jason and not just through his contract that we’re sitting here with right now.
“But it is not what is implied when you say, ‘Well, this is an armageddon year,’ ” Jones added. “Well, it is not that with me.”
Well, we’ll see what happens if the Cowboys finish with an 8-8 record for the third straight season.

Media sessions in training camp are usually a pretty straightforward endeavor. Reporters ask coaches how they think the offseason has gone, and the coaches say how much they're looking forward to the season and they feel great about their teams. Rarely do we actually get a gem from such a session, but that's what happened in Oxnard, CA at the Cowboys' training camp.
