    Jerry Jones: I have a lot of faith in Jason Garrett

    By Tim MacMahon | Nov 5, 2012 12:19 AM

    ATLANTA -- Jerry Jones distanced as much as possible from the Sean Payton-to-Dallas speculation and reiterated that he firmly believes Jason Garrett is the right man to coach the Cowboys.

    It’s more difficult to make that case after each loss. And Garrett’s Cowboys have lost nine of their last 13 games.

    However, Jones’ faith in Garrett seemed unflappable after Sunday night’s loss to the undefeated Falcons dropped the Cowboys to 3-5, increasing the odds that they’d miss the playoffs for the third consecutive season.

    “Oh, I have a lot of faith in Jason,” Jones said. “I think Jason’s future is ahead of him. I know how hard he works. I like his philosophy, so I’ve got a lot of faith, a lot of confidence.

    “One of the brightest spots I see is our head coaching and our coaching in the future.”

    So he has faith in a hc that is 3-5 coming off a 8-8 season but fires a hc for a 1-7 start coming off a 11-5 nfc east titile and a playoff win? Lol this is gonna get ugly

    Jerry really needs to hire a shrink. Make sure that the shrink is an avid Cowboys fan. At least then Jerry will get a dose a reality.

    I'm so over this team...I just view it as entertainment and comedy now and it works pretty well, especially when you always see these quotes/headlines from Jerry after we lose

    When the owner has to come out and remind people he still likes his head coach, things are not good.

    I wonder if he thinks fans seek his opinion. Like we watch a game, see how inept Jason is, but then take solace in this idiot saying he still has faith in him. Give me a break.

    What's he supposed to say? 1-7 isn't 3-5. Stop being emotional. When we are eliminated from playoff contention I expect a different answer.

    I'll be expecting that answer in two to three weeks.

    Not matter what anyone says, there will not be any changes in Dallas this year or next.

    Expect the same outcome next year too. Mediocrity.

    Faith........is something you place on a higher power, hope is something you place on a human

    What Jerry has is Hope.....and if you just sit and hope for things to happen, that means your doing nothing yourself about your own problems.

    Now if Garrett or Jerry has "desire".....it probably means he is going to, at some point, do something about his own problems.

    Hope he's just using his "Jerry Speak" which is always just a bunch of hot air. Hopefully he is saying the one thing but sending out feelers for a possible new, REAL, head coach after the season.

    One thing about Jerry is he will give the company line about a coach right up until that coach is gone. So I wouldn't read too much into him singing Garrett's praise. He'll do that up to and including the day Jason is replaced.
