Decade of Futility - Jerry Jones' Noose Growing Tighter For Jason Garrett

Valley Ranch has long been hailed as the most combustible place on the face of the football planet. So the following should come as little surprise...
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett spent a good portion of yesterday’s press conference talking about how his team needs to maintain a balanced attack on offense.
Less than 24 hours later, owner Jerry Jones went on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM 105.3 “The Fan” in Dallas and seemed enthralled with the Cowboys’ capabilities in the passing department. When asked what has changed with the team’s play-calling since Bill Callahan took over from Garrett, Jones emphasized that passing is what the Cowboys offense is all about.
“You’re going to see more play-action passes. You haven’t seen it, but you’re going to see more,” Jones said. “You’re going to see more zone blocking. You’re going to see emphasizing tight ends more. The other thing is that I think we all realize that with Terrance Williams as well as Harris out there at the third receiver, Miles is healthier than he’s been the last couple of years, you see what Dez can do. And we certainly want to take advantage of the combination of our receiving tight ends, our receivers, and so, you know, if you look at personnel, you’re tied in to what we’re basically doing offensively, I think we’re not the same team we were last year.”
If words were handwriting, then Jerry was not only talking to his listening audience, but was busy writing on Jason Garrett’s wall of philosophy in the process.
