Jerry Jones verbally assaulted the Cowboys coaching in Sunday’s 13-9 loss to the Patriots. Aside from Jason Garrett deciding to play it safe and kick a field goal to cut the lead to four with less than six minutes to go in the game and his offense in the red zone, a blocked kick and a couple of muffed kicks from a perpetually struggling Cowboys special teams was the main cause of Jones’ anger.
To me, special teams is 100 percent coaching. It’s 100 percent coaching. It’s strategy. I don’t think there’s a game where a coaching staff couldn’t do better. I don’t like that we’ve got so many [this year] as I’m standing here tonight.”
POP QUIZ TIME!
Upon hearing Jones’ public criticism of his team, how did head coach Jason Garrett respond?
A.) Sternly quip back to signal that he is the leader of the team and won’t be used as a human piñata.
B.) Continue his signature never-ending clapping spectacle to prove that everything is a-OK.
C.) Roll over and let Jones pet his belly while also taking zero personal accountability.
D.) Whisper into the mic “We may have killed ourselves but Epstein sure didn’t”
Anyone who’s been unsure during a Scantron test, knows that C is always your best bet.
Lets just say Cowboys fans have been through this song and dance before.
The Cowboys fell to 6-5 and haven’t won two straight games in two months.
