Even though Dallas owns a 3-2 record through the first five games, the Dallas Cowboys are always battling sky-high expectations. Unfortunately for Jason Garrett, that means his job security is always in question after any loss.
The Cowboys started the season with three-straight blowout wins. Many analysts were talking about this team cruising through the NFC East.
Following those relatively easy wins, the Cowboys fell short to the Saints on the road. The hope was that Dallas would rebound nicely at home against Green Bay, but instead “America’s Team” lost back-to-back games.
Most of the blame in Dallas shifted to Garrett. There’s a narrative floating around the league that he can’t win big games for the Cowboys.
Garrett will most likely receive criticism throughout the season regardless of the team’s record. However, Jerry Jones sounds fairly confident in his coach.
When asked about Garrett being among the betting favorites to be fired during the season, Jones said “Don’t bet any money on that happening, you’ll lose it.”
Jones is all but confirming that Garrett will remain the coach through the season.

Obviously that doesn’t mean Jones will commit to Garrett after this season, but it does ensure him job security for the next few months.
Garrett has led the Cowboys to the postseason three times since taking over for as the head coach in 2010.
Dallas will try to bounce back this weekend when it face the New York Jets.
