Garrett’s Job Safe With Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys have made it clear head coach Jason Garrett’s job is “safe” despite the team’s disappointing 4-11 record this season.

The Cowboys are 1-10 without quarterback Tony Romo, who twice broke his collarbone — Week 2 and Thanksgiving Day — forcing Dallas to use four starters in the first 15 games. The Cowboys were 12-4 and won the NFC East last season.

“He’s safe,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told NFL Media’s Albert Breer this week. “Change isn’t always the right answer. We’re not big believers in it. Jason, a year ago, everyone thought he hung the moon. That’s the terrible thing about this business: You take one year, and change everything. This doesn’t faze us, it won’t faze us.

“We’re totally in with Jason. We’re totally in with our staff.”

The Cowboys finish the regular season Sunday against the division champion Washington Redskins. The Cowboys will try to avoid standing alone with the franchise’s worst record since the 1-15 1989 season — Jerry Jones ‘ first year of ownership.

“I think you have to look at everybody,” Stephen Jones told Breer. “I’m accountable. Jason’s accountable. We’re 4-11. It’s up to us to do something about it. We had injuries, yes, but Jason doesn’t want to use that as an excuse. I don’t want to use that as excuse.”

Dallas is 78-49 with Romo in the lineup since he became the starter and 7-19 without him.

“There’s no way we shouldn’t have won three or four more games, especially with the division we’re in,” Stephen Jones said. “Teams win games in those situations, and we’re taking accountability for that. We should be able to win games without Tony. One question that’s fair is if we have a system in place that’s not good for other quarterbacks. How come we can’t adapt when Tony’s not in the game? It’s the same group of coaches, the same cast from a top-five offense, but we don’t have the same stats.
