Jerry Jones declined to put Jason Garrett on the hot seat following the Dallas Cowboys' third straight loss on Sunday, but the team's owner didn't give his head coach a ringing endorsement, either.
"I'm going to be very trite: I was a lot happier with what he had done the first three games than what's happened the last three games," Jones said postgame, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. "But the big thing I want to say is it's not just him. This is across the board. That had a lot of input out there tonight to get in that spot."
The Cowboys fell 24-22 on the road against the New York Jets, a team that won its first game of the season.
Dallas opened the campaign with victories over the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, and Miami Dolphins, but the club has since fallen to the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, and Jets.
The Cowboys will meet their NFC East rival the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7, a matchup of two 3-3 teams.
"I think it's all about where you end up in your division. I think the competition against each other and the competition within the division, I think that's where it all is," Jones said, according to Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com.
"I hope that someday this season we could be one of the top teams," he continued. "We certainly were not tonight. I hope that we can do better than just win our division, although I'll take that right now in this circumstance. But I hope that we can get out there and get a little special positioning in the playoffs."
