"We have to do our jobs to the best of our ability," Austin said.

Asked if changing to Jason Garrett will give this team a shot in the arm, Austin said he hoped so.

"Right now we're 1-7," Austin said. "We definitely need to get going. Hopefully, it changes things for the better. It's nothing us as players can really control. We have to go in and play our best."

Austin didn't want to comment on whether a change was necessary, saying it wasn't up to the players.

"My job is to go in and be a receiver for the team and not stir anything up," Austin said.
