Jerry Jones: 5-5 is not acceptable at bye but no time to get panicky, no staff changes will be made

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not happy with his team’s 5-5 record heading into this week's bye.

And he’s still smarting about the 49-17 blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

But Jones has no plans to make any big changes before the Cowboys return to action against the New York Giants Nov. 24 following the bye.

Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will continue to call plays despite an underachieving attack. Monte Kiffin will continue coordinate a defense that is on pace to be one of the worst in NFL history.

And Jason Garrett will remain the head coach.

Jones pointed to the return of several injured players following the bye and the continue presence of quarterback Tony Romo as reasons to stay the course.

The Cowboys are in a first place tie atop the NFC East with the Philadelphia Eagles.

“5-5 is not acceptable,” Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM Tuesday. “But we can we can say we were close in four of the games we lose. You can get critical of everything you saw in New Orleans. But we had a chance to win at Kansas City and we had a chance to win against Denver. Don’t look at what happened to us the other night (in New Orleans) and become panicky. I’m not goig to address the coaching staff and whether they are safe. We are 5-5. We got players coming back. We got one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. It doesn’t call for much changes at all.”
