Jerry Jones Responds To Question About Firing Jason Garrett During Season

Jerry Jones Responds To Question About Firing Jason Garrett During Season

The Cowboys (3-2) have lost two consecutive games, including last week to the Packers, 34-24. Week 1 against the New York Giants saw him set a franchise record for passing yards in a season opener with 405 and toss 4 touchdowns en route to a dominant 35-17 victory. Still, there a few players who haven't met their personal expectations and have a lot of room to improve as the season wears on. Week 3 wasn't quite as impressive but it didn't need to be as All-Pro Ezekiel Elliott and rookie Tony Pollard both rushed for over 100 yards. It would seem when the Cowboys play teams on their level, the Packers and Saints, they can't keep up. There were plenty of culprits: defensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs.

Brett Maher missed two field goals against the Packers, a 54-yarder late in the first half that gave Green Bay a chance to get more points, although the Packers stalled. What other kickers could the Cowboys target? "It's not impacting that with me at all".

A month later, Flacco, who was also named Super Bowl MVP, became the highest-paid National Football League quarterback at the time as he penned a six-year extension worth $120.6 million.

With the Washington Redskins firing Jay Gruden after an 0-5 start, one oddsmaker has Garrett as the second most likely to be let go during the season, behind Atlanta's Dan Quinn.

The team announced on Tuesday that quarterback Sam Darnold has been cleared to play and will start Sunday's Week 6 game against the Dallas Cowboys. But is he the problem with the Cowboys right now?
