The absence of running back Ezekiel Elliott has exposed plenty of flaws in Dallas, with some of them come from coaching. Whether the inexplicable failure to adjust when left tackle Chaz Green made Adrian Clayborn look like Reggie White or the inexplicable failure to adjust when the defense was making Keenan Allen look like Jerry Rice, a stubborn commitment to scheme (which is another way of saying “inability to make meaningful adjustments on the fly”) has justifiably resulted in tough questions for coach Jason Garrett. Those tough questions aren’t coming from owner Jerry Jones, who reiterated on Friday his commitment to the man who first became head coach during the 2010 season. “Jason Garrett was named Coach of the Year of the whole NFL last year,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, via Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “That was yesterday. This is today. The point is, I like this coaching staff.” Garrett sidestepped a question from reporters on Friday regarding whether he’s concerned about his status.
