    IRVING, Texas -- With Tennessee's Chris Johnson coming to town Sunday, the subject of making running back Felix Jones a featured part of the Dallas Cowboys' offense is an especially hot topic around Valley Ranch this week.

    It appears that owner/general manager Jerry Jones and assistant head coach/offensive coordinator Jason Garrett aren't in complete agreement about the issue, but Jerry Jones insists that isn't the case.

    Garrett indicated that he doesn't plan to make getting Felix Jones the ball a bigger priority than it's been. Jones had 22 carries for 88 yards and four catches for 38 yards during the Cowboys' 1-2 start.

    "He's probably being coy with our strategy," Jerry Jones said of Garrett. "And that comes from being coy with the strategy. I don't get that [from Garrett]. I don't have that kind of communication going on with him."

    LOL, right?

    Jerry not making much sense here. Probably babbling because he realized he was giving away info to the titans he shouldn't and was trying to put confusion into his story to throw them off.

    Not withstanding Jerrys nonsense quoted above, it appears more and more that Garrett is being watched very closely by his boss. The bloom may be off the rose.

    Felix Jones missed 12 games because of hamstring, toe and knee injuries his first two seasons, but the Cowboys don't consider his durability to be a significant concern.

    Sure they don't ....:rolleyes:

    What an idiot. Someone take him out of his misery.

    We can only hope TN puts 8 in the box now and we can do what we do best, pass.
