Cowboys owner Jerry Jones began his post-game meeting with reporters by saying he would not talk about the status of head coach Jason Garrett.
“Just before we start, I’m not going to talk anything about coaches and coaching, and I’m not going to talk about, obviously, I’m not going to talk about personnel,” Jones said following the Cowboys’ loss to the Redskins. “We’ll talk about the game. I would say they were the better team. They played like it. They played well enough to win, and they deserved what they’re getting. My hat’s off to them – the entire organization.
“They’ve done something pretty phenomenal to come back like they have, considering how they started. I give them all that they deserve, the Washington Redskins.”
Jones said last week after a Fox Sports report that Garrett’s job was safe for next year, no matter the outcome of the final two games, that he had not put any thought into anything besides Garrett being the coach.
Asked how close the Cowboys are, Jones said, “As far as I’m concerned, we’re as far away as you can measure because we’re at home and not in the tournament.”
