Jerry Jones opens up about changes in Dallas organization
Major changes could be on the horizon in Dallas.
The Dallas Cowboys are 1-3 on the season after Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns. The team has a chance to take sole possession of the NFC East with a win over the 0-4 New York Giants.
However, following Week 4’s loss, many fans are calling for major change, especially on defense. Many believe that first-year defensive coordinator Mike Nolan is the problem.
On Tuesday, owner Jerry Jones appeared on 105.3 The Fan to discuss his team’s current situation.
“We got somebody here that can tell you where we’re kept and where we’re inept, where we need changes as well as anybody else on this planet,” said Jones.
The Cowboys have allowed 30 or more points in three straight games. When playing the Falcons, Rams, and Browns, the team has looked completely dismal.
This has all come at the heels of many believing this was a stacked defense.
After the 2019 season ended, the Cowboys finished with the 10th ranked passing defense, 11th ranked rushing defense, and 11th ranked scoring defense.
The Cowboys made some acquisitions in the offseason and the team headed into the 2020 year with the potential of having a dangerous front seven.
Four-time Pro Bowl defensive end Everson Griffen was a nice addition. Former All-Pro pass rusher Aldon Smith looks to take the field for the first time in years. Nose tackle Dontari Poe signed a two-year contract. Losing Gerald McCoy and Robert Quinn were hits, but Leighton Vander Esch was healthy and Randy Gregory was reinstated.
Those two are like picking up two quality free agents. As always, DeMarcus Lawrence leads the charge and will be a main fixture on the team, while Jaylon Smith is breaking into a star.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on @1053thefan that making a change at defensive coordinator hasn’t even been a consideration through four games. Jones is confident that Mike Nolan can get things turned around

Instead, the team looks like a JV football team on defense.
If the Giants sling together 30 points, Nolan could have a very early exit.
