Troy Aikman: Cowboys Need a 'Complete Overhaul of the Entire Organization'

Troy Aikman is calling for the Cowboys to use nuclear option

However, even though Dallas is two games back of the Washington Redskins in the NFC East at 3-5, team owner Jerry Jones said there were no changes in store for the Cowboys coaching staff and that Garrett's job is safe.

The Dallas Cowboys traded a first-round pick for wide receiver Amari Cooper, signaling that Jerry Jones felt Dallas was a piece away from contending. "We just have to focus on what we need to do". We've got to play better.

"I'll assure you that this is a concern of his", Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on the KRLD/105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning. "Look for what we come out with and the adjustments that we've made based on what we think this team will do".

"I think we realize we have eight games to go, we've got a long way to go in this season", Jones said.

Monday night, of course, the Cowboys had to settle for just a touchdown despite being gifted two first-quarter fumbles that nearly begged them to put Tennessee out of its misery by halftime. Prescott threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns, but threw an interception, lost a fumble and was sacked five times.

With so many new first-year coaches in the building, the Cowboys might not see a suitable replacement for Garrett and Linehan at The Star right now though. "I talk to people who have been inside the building and have a pretty good understanding how things are run, and in a lot of ways there's a lot of dysfunction, and that has to change if this team is going to be able to compete on a consistent basis like the teams that you look to around the league that seemingly are in the hunt each and every year". We're not in anything if we don't play better.

Will that sit well with Jones, who said multiple times during his post-game press conference that he was surprised by how poorly the team played?

Machota: I've been saying 9-7 since the schedule was released.

A coaching change would be the only thing the Cowboys can do to create some optimism for Prescott, giving their new coach a proven commodity at quarterback and allowing him to make a decision from there.

Jones took a similar stance in 2010 when Dallas started 1-7 under Wade Phillips. Garrett, the Cowboys coach, was asked one day after the game if he was considering replacing offensive coordinator Scott Linehan as the team's play-caller. "It hasn't always mattered who the head coach has been".
