Report: Cowboys won’t make immediate changes to coaching staff despite Jerry Jones criticism
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones let out a scathing statement after his team fell short against the New England Patriots on Sunday, with the special teams, in particular, bearing the brunt of his ire. His words could virtually be seen as him throwing his coaching staff under the bus.
However, it doesn’t appear as if his harsh comments equate to changes being made on the coaching staff. According to ESPN NFL insider Ed Werder, the Cowboys will not make any significant changes to how the coaching staff has been set up.

This revelation is a worrying bit of news for the Dallas faithful. Based on how the team has performed so far this season, there’s definitely a lapse of talent between the players and the coaching staff. Jones mentioned this after their loss to New England, and this fact rang true for most of the losses they had this season.
Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, and Dak Prescott are all supremely talented players who can win football games if used properly.
Unfortunately, it seems that Garrett has a problem winning against teams with winning records this season. They lost against the Patriots, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, and Green Bay Packers. All of these are superb teams with solid offenses and equally indomitable defenses. If they want to win the Super Bowl this year, they have to improve on their performances against teams that actually matter.
If they don’t get things sorted this year, expect upheaval in the coaching staff to happen.
