According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, owner Jerry Jones is pushing coach Jason Garrett to relinquish play-calling duties.  Per Mort, Jones also may be trying to get Garrett to fire his brother, tight ends coach John Garrett.

Mort says John Garrett is calling around the league regarding other available jobs.  Which could indeed means that John Garrett fears his brother will fire him.

It also could mean that the Princeton-educated Garretts sense that Jones is trying to provoke a showdown that will result in Jason Garrett leaving as the head coach without Jones flat-out firing him.  Indeed, it’s one thing for Jones to roll out of bed one morning and decide to make a coaching change.  It’s quite another for Jones to want his head coach to make changes and for his coach to resist, creating an impasse that leads to only one logical conclusion.

It’s interesting to know whether or not Jones simply wants Garrett to relinquish play calling duties or he has a bigger ploy of getting Garrett out altogether.  Many Cowboys fans and analysts assumed Garrett would be gone and were shocked and dismayed with Jones choice to keep him.  One things for certain, more changes are coming.
