A coaching change for the Dallas Cowboys is not likely says Jerry Jones. At least not until the offseason.
The Dallas Cowboys lost their third consecutive game when they fell to the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football, dropping to 6-7 for the season. Despite the loss, which was their fourth in their last five games, owner Jerry Jones still believes the team will make the playoffs and doesn’t plan on making a coaching change before the season is over.
“You’ve got to remember that when you quit on your coach, then you quit on yourself, because we’re all a part of this,” Jones said during a radio interview. “There’s nobody in the NFL that’s any more responsible for what’s going on out on the field than me, I certainly have that kind of frustration as well.”
Even though he is reluctant to make a coaching change, Jones isn’t happy about what he has seen from his players on the field.

“These guys are mentally OK for me, and all these guys are talented enough for me, so that’s good,” Jones said. “I’m questioning how to put together a coordinated one that complements each other, how to put together a team that can win a football game. … We’re not collectively getting together as a team and doing the things it takes to win ballgames.” Does this spell coaching change?
Jones said he was also unhappy that the team has lost three consecutive games for the second time this season despite most of the players being healthy, which had been an excuse in recent years.
“It’s leveled out here. It’s losing, losing, losing. I’m not trying to be funny here, but the point is we’ve got to win a football game,” Jones said regarding a coaching change. “I don’t care what the standings are, what the numbers are. We had thought that we could come up here and play a good team, play a fine football game and get our act to where we’re starting to look like a team that could — if we, by the slim chance, get in the playoffs — where we could win. We can’t do that until we play and start winning the football games, and we’ve got three more to play. When we do that, we can go.”
