Garrett said Jerry Jones’ comments don’t bother or undermine him as they talk about everything

That owner Jerry Jones would emphatically say that running Felix Jones would remain the team’s primary kickoff returner one day after coach Jason Garrett said the team would consider other options seemed to lend credence to the notion that the Cowboys have another puppet in place as coach.

Garrett, however, says he has no problems with Jones’ comments and doesn’t believe they undermine his authority. He said he and Jones talk about everything and the team will stick by Felix Jones for now because of his history of success, despite his struggles so far this year.

Garrett maintained they would get other options ready to go.

“One of the things that I think we do a really good job of in this organization is we discuss things,” Garrett said. “The Joneses and I discuss a lot of things. Our staff and I discuss a lot of things. We discuss a lot of things with our pro personnel and our college scouting departments. So the lines of communication are open. There’s no thing that’s going to be my decision or his decision or that guy’s decision or this guy’s decision. If we’re talking about a player playing, (coach) Joe DeCamillis has a huge role in who’s going to be our returner. Now is he going to make the decision? No. I’m going to get involved in that discussion. Other people are going to get involved in that discussion. It’s just the way it works. We think that’s a good thing. Different people have different perspectives and different insights and then we come to a conclusion that we all think is good. We’ve never had any issues that way regarding personnel or really any kind of decision we have to make as an organization.”
