Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that while Jerry Jones has been supportive of HC Jason Garrett and the coaching staff as a whole in recent weeks, there is “growing frustration” from the players.
According to Rapoport, the player’s concerns stem from a lack of adjustments, which was evident from took place against the Falcons a few weeks ago when they allowed Chaz Green to get beat several times throughout the game.
The other issue for the players is that they’re just too simple as a team. Rapoport spoke with one source who said that Chargers QB Philip Rivers was able to call out all of their blitz’s before they happened on the field.
Earlier in the week, Jones made it clear that Garrett’s job is not jeopardy, despite the team’s recent losing streak.
“No. Just no,” Jones said, per Jon Machota. “Again, I don’t step out of the dressing room and evaluate the coaching position at all. Candidly, and I don’t even want to say it so that somebody might repeat it. Absolutely not.”
Garrett is less than one year removed from being named Coach of the Year. However, the team has looked really bad in recent weeks without Ezekiel Elliott and it’s going to be on him to get things turned around in the near future.
Garrett, 51, began his NFL coaching career with the Dolphins back in 2005 as their quarterbacks coach. After two years in Miami, the Cowboys hired him as their offensive coordinator and he eventually worked his way up to head coach.
Over the course of his eight years in chargers of the Cowboys, Garrett has led the team to a record of 63-52 (54.8 percent), which includes three playoff appearances.
