Jerry Jones on Jason Garrett: 'This is not a make or break' year

<p> Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has unwielding support from owner Jerry Jones.</p> <p> Despite the Cowboys' mediocrity under Garrett, Jones is standing behind his head coach.</p> <p> And Jones insists this isn't a pivotal year for Garrett's employment after three consecutive 8-8 seasons.</p> <p> “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.</p> <p> Does Garrett have to make the playoffs to keep his job?</p> <p> “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.”</p> <p> Follow me on Twitter: <a href="http://www.twitter.com/RavensInsider">@RavensInsider</a></p> <p> Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun</p>
