Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has unwielding support from owner Jerry Jones.

Despite the Cowboys' mediocrity under Garrett, Jones is standing behind his head coach.

And Jones insists this isn't a pivotal year for Garrett's employment after three consecutive 8-8 seasons.

“I know first hand that we’ve got a relationship, that I have a relationship — there’s nobody that has a better feel for me than Jason in terms of a relationship,” Jones said.

Does Garrett have to make the playoffs to keep his job?

“This is not make or break. I’m not going to use that word you just used just because of superstitions,” Jones said. “But I’ll be serious with you: No, this is not. In terms of the record of this team, this is not a make-or-break situation for Jason and members of this staff.”
