Immediately after the loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones criticized head coach Jason Garrett and the rest of the team’s coaching staff for their blunders that cost the team yet another game against a quality opponent.
On Tuesday morning, he doubled down on his criticism.
As for what running back Ezekiel Elliott thinks about the situation? He seemed to fire back at the Cowboys owner by referring to his comments as “outside noise.”
“We’re not worried about the outside noise,” said Elliott, according to Ed Werder of ESPN. “We know what’s important. We know we need to be ready to play this Thursday. We have a job to do and can’t let anything distract us from that.’’
The tension in the Cowboys organization is at an all-time high as the team has failed to beat a team above .500 all year, and with each loss, they continue to let a struggling Philadelphia Eagles team stay in the NFC East race.
The Cowboys are 6-5 and remain in first place in the NFC East and will look to get back on track when they host the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving day.
