The contract of Dallas Cowboys Jason Garrett was due to expire after the 2019 season. Ian Rapoport reports that Jerry Jones will extend it after the playoffs – no matter what happens tonight against the Rams.
The Cowboys started this year at the age of 3-5, and ESPN's Dan Graziano endangered Garrett's job last month following a defeat by the Colts. But two late wins won the NFC East, and The Clapper's team defeated the Seahawks 24-22 in the wild card round last week.
Is Garrett's Enlargement a rewards turnaround this year or a Jerry Jones & # 39; Desire to have a coach ready to go with what the owner wants? Two of the key factors in improving the cowboys this year were the Amari Cooper trade and the trigger of offensive coach Paul Alexander. The way Jones talked about these steps made it clear that he had a significant impact on them:
"[The Cowboys] are more urgent because we dug a hole here. We have to be pretty strong here in our success. We do not have time. We do not have the room to shake here. That says a lot about the things we've done in the past two weeks, Cooper, and the changes we've made in the offensive.
"We have a high standard. "Jones said," When we look at the strength of our team, we think of it as an offensive line, and you're there when you play and train in that area, and we want to be a symbol of what the team is about. After seven games, we did not bring the work up to standard and we felt we needed new voices, which was the way to give up the best chance to go in the direction we want to go. "
Garrett was characteristically calmer when shooting Alexander, simply saying, "We're always trying to get better." If the Cowboys' idea of improving keeps Garrett even longer, Jones needs to have a curious definition of having "better".
