Dallas Cowboys: Losing could be key to turnaround

Additionally, Jones said that the job of head coach Jason Garrett remains safe, despite the Cowboys now standing at 3-5 and entering the weekend third in the NFC East.

During his entire nine-year career as the head coach in Dallas, Garrett is a mediocre 70-58 (.547) including being just 1-3 in the playoffs.

"And there's been times where I've heard Jerry say, 'OK, look, we're going to do it differently".

That 2017 season that yielded nine wins, which would require a 6-2 record for the Cowboys from this point on, did ultimately result in the firing of/changing of seven coaches below Garrett and his coordinators.

Will Jason Garrett be back next season?

In fact, third-year quarterback Dak Prescott played so poorly against the Titans, owner and general manager Jerry Jones publicly announced that Dak's getting a contract extension.

If Jones is referring to the Cowboys' offense, he's delusional, because defenses haven't struggled much to solve anything the Dallas' offense has shown them. Nothing changes. And that to me is the bigger issue beyond, yes, coaching is important, personnel, all those things are important, but how are you going about evaluating how you're going about running the organization?

"Unfortunately, as a team, we didn't play 60 minutes in the game and you have to respond to success, you have to respond to adversity the right way", Garrett said. You have to put the good things behind you and keep going and you have to put the adversity behind you and keep going, make plays. We're not in anything if we don't play better.

"Go through the list and this team, over a long period of time, has been what it's been", Aikman said, via Todd Archer of ESPN. "I do listen to what the fans say".

A coaching change would be the only thing the Cowboys can do to create some optimism for Prescott, giving their new coach a proven commodity at quarterback and allowing him to make a decision from there. "Had we played a lot better tonight and had the loss, then I would be more positive about that".

He brought up how the Cowboys fired offensive line coach Frank Pollack after last season and his replacement, Paul Alexander, was also given the boot after Week 8 of this year. And head coach Jason Garrett is a mediocre coach.
