Dallas Cowboys Rumors: Jason Garrett Will Soon Be Fired

You do not need to read a bunch of NFL rumors to learn that the Dallas Cowboys are a complete mess. In fact, let's face it - they have been a complete mess for several years now and a lot of that has to do with the owner Jerry Jones.

A few years ago Jerry Jones handed his franchise to unproven head coach Jason Garrett and now it looks like he'll have to fire Garrett if the team misses the playoffs.

The Cowboys are coming off of an embarrassing loss to the Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers. The Cowboys led the game by 23 points at halftime, but allowed the Packers to rally back with Matt Flynn taking snaps under center.

As usual, quarterback Tony Romo made a few late game mistakes which would prove costly for the Cowboys, but Jerry Jones is not blaming his franchise quarterback for the loss.

"When it basically has to unfold for him out there, the defense gets out of their structure, we get out of our structure on pass routes," Jones said. "All of a sudden, you're into a little more sandlot-type football. In doing so, there's more risk that's involved. Make no mistake about it: With where we are with our personnel, we're going to have to take risks."

Instead of putting all of the blame on Romo for a late game interception, he put the fault on receiver Cole Beasley for running an incorrect route.

"It was probably one you could take back and should take back," Jones said. "But still, I understand. I think it's a toss-up there as to who was at fault there.

"We just got the ball intercepted there and made a bad play. Beasley has a good reason for playing the ball the way he did, the way we read that play, and Romo has a reason for throwing the ball there."

Jerry Jones has shown nothing buy loyalty towards Tony Romo which means there is no chance the team is going to start over at that position in the offseason. That means Jones will once again clean house on his coaching staff, starting with head coach Jason Garrett.

Garrett was never prepared to be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys to begin with and he certainly deserves a lot of the blame for how things have gone this season in Dallas. However, Jones has already stripped him of so much control that it is obviously not entirely his fault.

Romo, defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and Jerry Jones himself are all equally to blame.
