DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - After oddsmakers pegged Jason Garrett as the second likeliest coach to be fire next, Dallas Cowboys COO Stephen Jones said Garrett isn't in any danger of losing his job.

"Absolutely not. He's done a great job with this team. As you saw yesterday, he had this team playing hard guys playing hard when that game could have gotten real ugly," Jones said when asked by the Ben & Skin Show about the odds released by SportsLine Monday. "He's got them playing hard and we just have to correct a few things and we'll be back in line. I totally believe that and I know Jerry believes it." 

The Jones' have been staunch supporters of Garrett throughout his tenure with the team, and now certainly isn't the time to bail on the head coach. Should they finally make the decision to pull the plug on Garrett (they won't), it wouldn't likely occur until the offseason. 

The Garrett-led Cowboys have lost back to back games to the Drew Brees-less Saints and the Packers after starting the season with three straight wins over the Redskins, Giants, and Dolphins. All three of those teams have a combined record of 2-12, while the Saints and Packers are a combined 8-2. 

In Sunday's loss to the Packers, Garrett drew a 15-yard penalty for using abusive language towards an official. 

Garrett joined Shan and RJ this morning to discuss the call and what happened in the loss. You can listen to the interview below:
