PLAYERS: Jason Garrett
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones likes to win.

So much so, that he is finally publicly stating that he has put his head coach on the hot seat.

Jones has always used colorful terms to describe the state of his team.

When he spoke with the Star-Telegram at the NFL Scouting Combine he went as far as to say that the Cowboys are “in a rut that is akin to lying dead in a coffin.”

  • I am so angry at Jerry Jones, I think he has singled handedly done more damage to pro football than any other single person. He has certainly done more damage to the Cowboys then any other single person. I think he is senile, rich, but senile or lives on another planet. I understand being rich, be an owner, live large, but know your limitations. Hire a great coach, get a great quarterback, get a great scout, hire a great general manager and then get the hell out of the way and let the players play!!! My Christmas wish is that someone of good sense, buy the Cowboys and return them to the glory days of Landry, or at least Jimmy Johnson.
  • hmmmmmm, lying dead in a coffin? really? never mind, i won't go there. ;>)
  • Jerry took a Class Team that was always in the hunt all the way up to Jimmy's team that won the Super Bowle in 95 and turned the Cowboys into the laughing stock of the NFL. Name one owner that ran off a coach that had just one the Super Bowl. jerry jones is a idiot of an owner, person, and a business owner in any other business with that much failure it would have been bankrupt a long time ago.
  • The guy is unbelievable. He admits the team in stuck in a rut. A rut/coffin that he created by his stupidity. He talks like hes just an innocent bystander and had nothing to do with this state of affairs.

    Sounds presidential, doesn't he?
  • I believe Jerry Jones needs to hire Tebow the christian QB to led America's Team out of it's coffin,an instead of hasbeen America's Team to once again Become America's Team again.He ca do for the Boys what he did for Dallas West aka the Denver Bronco's.
  • Tebow can't work miracles. The whole organization blows.
  • we know Romo is good,just not good enough to win in the NFL.He's not worth what he's getting now.Cut Romo to make room in salary cap.Alex Smith is still available.
  • Coach Jones is to blame for 10 players equaling 90 million of cap space. GM Jones is to blame for the poor Offensive and Defensive lines. Owner Jones is to blame for the high price of hot dogs and beer at his stadium. Jer wanted the credit, well now he's got it. Too Bad there isn't a coach TOM or a TEX to bail him out. The red headed puppet is gonna be fired cause there is noone in charge as long as Jer is there.

Rob Ryan's scheme too complex?

The dismissal of Rob Ryan as the team's defensive coordinator remains a topic of conversation, as Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones once again had to discuss it.
