Jerry Jones comments on DC Mike Nolan’s future
Nobody has a hotter seat than Mike Nolan.
The Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator has manned one of the league’s worst defenses. The Cowboys have allowed 30 or more points in four straight games and many have called for his job.
By allowing 36.3 points per game, the Cowboys are the worst scoring defense in the NFL. Despite the struggles, owner Jerry Jones is not ready to write off Nolan just yet.
“I like the way we came out last night defensively,” said Jones on 105.3 The Fan. “I thought we had a google plan for the skills of Murray and what the Cardinals presented us. These aren’t excuses.”
Many around the league believe that the Cowboys weren’t prepared for this game. On Monday night, Cowherd took to Twitter to challenge Jerry Jones’ decision on hiring Mike McCarthy.
“Jerry Jones wanted a coach that wouldn’t challenge him,” said on Twitter during the game. “He hired a coach that’s created a team — that won’t challenge anyone.”
After the game, NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported that many players on the roster are slamming the coaching staff. “Totally unprepared,” an anonymous player on the Cowboys told Slater. “They don’t teach. They don’t have any sense of adjusting on the fly.”
Slater also reported that players are slamming the coaching staff, stating “the coaches are not good at their jobs.”
It was the first game without Dak Prescott as the team’s quarterback, but not everyone appears to be giving the team the benefit of the doubt.
The Cowboys, at 2-4, lead the NFC East, but a loss to the 1-5 Washington Football Team could completely sink this ship. The two rivals play on Sunday afternoon as the Cowboys look to break their losing cycle.
