Is Jerry Jones or Jason Garrett in charge?
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- Being the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys is one of the best jobs in sports. It can also be one of the worst.
Only with the Cowboys would the team's unrest at kickoff returner become such an issue.
On Monday, Jason Garrett was asked if Felix Jones would continue as the team's returner after fumbling the opening kick and making questionable decisions to take other kicks out of the end zone at Seattle.
"We're always looking at personnel, to be honest with you, and when you make a play like that, you look hard again at that and what the alternatives are," Garrett said then.
On Tuesday, owner and general manager Jerry Jones was asked on his KRLD-FM radio spot about Felix Jones' status, and he said it was foolish to think the former first-round pick would not be on the roster, and his role would not change.
It was read as another sign that Jerry Jones is calling all the shots with the team. On Wednesday, Garrett said Felix Jones would be the returner Sunday against Tampa Bay.
To those who believe the owner is making the call, it all seems so convenient.
