Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has had difficulties with endgame time management for two consecutive weeks, and it's cost his team two games.  And so, despite Garrett's 12-9 record as a head coach, questions have begun to emerge about his job security should this Cowboys team miss the playoffs.  Team owner Jerry Jones went on NFL Network and attempted to quash those rumors, in terms that went well beyond the usual vote of confidence, according to two tweets from NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano:

Six men have been head coach in Dallas since Jimmy Johnson -- who had led the Cowboys to two Super Bowl victories -- resigned from the position largely due to his inability to coexist with Jones. None of those coaches have had tenures longer than four years. Garrett was named interim head coach nine games into the 2010 season, and became the actual head coach in January of 2011.
