Jerry Jones has been humiliating his employees for years, so his treatment of Jason Garrett this offseason shouldn't have caught anyone by surprise. But there's been a brazenness to Jones' statements and actions that has upped the ante in some respects.
t's certainly his prerogative to keep this organization in the ditch any way he sees fit, but to watch him strip a family member of his dignity has raised some eyebrows. Even Garrett's close friend and former teammate, Troy Aikman, thinks the head coach has little say in his own future. It was remarkable to hear a positive guy like Aikman have such a bleak outlook for the Cowboys' 2013 season.
Never fear, though, because the word of Garrett's demise has finally pierced the walls of Valley Ranch. Jones suddenly took to the team's website last week in a ham-handed attempt to save face for his head coach. He's insisting that Garrett was leading the way in making changes on both sides of the ball. I happen to know otherwise because I'm quite familiar with the voices who were telling Jerry to hire former Buccaneers defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. Still, it's humorous to hear Jones provide some new spin.
"He basically sat down and said 'Here's the kind of coach I want,' " Jones said of Garrett. "He did the evaluation. He basically said, 'Jerry, here's who I want to get.' "
Well, that clears up everything. I can just hear Jason saying something to the effect of, "Jerry, let"s start out by getting rid of my brother John. And I think we need more age on the defensive staff."
