A frustrated Jerry Jones says Jason Garrett’s job is not in jeopardy

Owner Jerry Jones is obviously disappointed that the Cowboys are in the midst another December tailspin that currently has them out of the playoffs.

They are tied with the Giants atop the NFC East with a 7-6 records but trail in the standings because of the head-to-head loss on Sunday.

It's frustrating to Jones because a week ago, the Cowboys were a field goal away against the Cardinals from taking a commanding two-game lead in the NFC East over the Giants heading into last Sunday’s game with a chance to clinch the division.

But they lost to the Cardinals in overtime and then blew a 12-point point lead in the last five minutes of a 37-34 loss to the Giants.

A still shocked Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM Tuesday that he already booked that game as a win when the Cowboys took the 34-22 with 5:39 left only to watch in horror as the Giants scored two touchdowns and then blocked a game-tying field goal by the Cowboys.

He said that game will linger with him for a long time as “We let that one get away.”

 "I would have liked to have closed it out right now," Jones said. "If we won the last to games, that would have happened."

It was actually the fifth time this season that the Cowboys have lost after leading in the fourth quarter, including the third time that they blew a lead of 12 or more points.

Add in the fact that coach Jason Garrett’s nine losses since taking over as head coach midway through last season including eight times in which the Cowboys blew a fourth quarter lead, it has been speculated that Jones might make a coaching change if they didn’t right rally and make the playoffs.

Jones shot down that notion on Tuesday.

 “That is not a question worth responding to,” Jones said before adding. “The answer is no. We are just getting started here.”

Ugh..Jerry...We think you started like 15, 16 years ago...And it's still not working you idiot!!...lol...Wonder how he'll feel if this team finishes this season with a five game losing streak to finish 7-9..Still stay status quo?? What an embicile that Jerry is...lol

Does any one else find it funny that Garrett was weaned on a strong running game closing out games with leads. Yet he is unable to develop a running game to close out games with leads.

He must have thought that Aikman and Irvin won those games all by themselves.

I cant get this game out of my mind. There is NO WAY we should have lost NO WAY. Gut the defense. If Garrett learned anything while playing under Jimmy Johnson is that someone is getting cut this week to teach a lesson.

Point 1 is the cows won 2 or 3 games against the soft teams on the schedule and I posted that sooner or later their luck would run out and it has.
Point 2 about game 5 last year Jaharry kept repeating that he had never fired a HC during the season and would not do it that season. Two weeks later Wade is fired, so this just proves that if you see Jaharry's lips moving he's lying.

Thats great Jerry just keep on doing the same maddening nothing you've been doing.
Everything is fine.
