Jerry Jones Rips Cowboys Coaches for Not Winning

Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Jerry Jones quietly dropped a pipe bomb on his coaching staff via the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, essentially telling everyone what we’ve always known: Tony Romo is the actual coach of the Dallas Cowboys, at least from an offensive perspective.

For years I’ve been a Romo apologist, basing my argument on the awful play calling and sometimes no-win positions Jason Garrett would put his quarterback in.

The 4-8 Cowboys are 3-1 in games started by Romo. However, they are 1-7 when anybody else average is under center, with Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel combining to go 0-7 prior to Monday’s victory.

Jones just wants to know why everything goes to shit when Romo’s not available.

“I am stunned that we haven’t been able to win more games without Tony,” said Jones, who signed Garrett to a five-year, $30 million extension last offseason.

“And I would have thought that we could have coached it up enough, and put it together enough, that we would not have lost those games without Romo early. We would be in better shape than we are right now.”

Oh, Jones wasn’t done by a long shot either, openly criticizing Garrett’s inability to get Dez Bryant more involved in the gameplan early on and also the clock management at the end of the game, saying the Cowboys “won on will, not tactical mastery.”

“I look at it as 4-8 and won’t look at it any differently as we move up the ladder until something really special happens,” Jones said.

In Garrett’s defense, Jones made startling comments about Weeden and Cassel, leading many to believe that he was happy with his backup quarterback situation.

I mean, Tyrod Taylor was available this summer if you weren’t sure, so next time fans want to be critical of Romo’s salary remember this: he’s the quarterback and , at times, the offensive coordinator head coach.
