The Dallas Cowboys are currently sitting at the top of the NFC East but it’s safe to say their performance so far this season has been fairly underwhelming, as the team is currently sporting a 6-5 record much to the chagrin of Jerry Jones.

Dallas was unable to come away with a win in their game against the Patriots on Sunday, and after the loss, Jones made it very clear how he felt about their current situation and wasn’t shy about criticizing head coach Jason Garrett.

On Tuesday, Jones—who previously said his head coach wasn’t on the hot seat—continued to speak out about the situation during an appearance on a radio show and once again ripped into the coaching staff while acknowledging he takes some responsibility for hiring Garrett in the first place.

After Sunday’s loss, Garrett acknowledged the team’s shortcomings and a number of players echoed his sentiment while admitting they have to do better.

On Tuesday, Ezekiel Elliott took some time to address the Cowboys’ current woes and appeared to brush off Jones’ comments while referring to them as “outside noise” despite the fact that they decidedly came from inside the organization.

Elliott and Jones haven’t exactly seen eye-to-eye this year, as the two men clashed while the running back angled for a new contract ahead of the season (although they appeared to make up once the new deal was finalized).

Dallas will have a chance to redeem themselves when they face off against the Bills on Thanksgiving, where they’re currently listed as 6.5-point favorites. Needless to say, it will be very interesting to see what Jones has to say if Buffalo pulls off the upset.
