Even if the Dallas Cowboys were better than 3-5 Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey , Jerry Jones says he would have plenty of cause for concern based on what he saw in a damaging loss to Tennessee.And the normally upbeat owner and general manager doesn't care to discuss the NFC East standings, even though the Cowboys can pull even https://www.dallascowboysteamonline....er-esch-jersey with defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia by getting their first road win of the season at the Eagles on Sunday."We're not in anything if we don't play better," Jones said after a 28-14 loss to the Titans that looked like it could be a blowout win for Dallas midway through the first quarter. "What I recognize is not so much the three wins and five losses but the way we lost this game and the way we played in the game."We've got to play better. Our record could be better than it is right now, and we'd still be in trouble."The Cowboys traded for a new No. 1 receiver in Amari Cooper and fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander during a surprisingly busy open week. The changes looked good early, with Cooper scoring the first Dallas touchdown and star running back Ezekiel Elliott having 75 yards from scrimmage in the first quarter.Everything changed with Dak Prescott's throw to Cooper in double coverage in the end zone with a 7-0 lead. Kevin Byard intercepted, Tennessee drove 80 yards in 15 plays for the tie and the Titans never trailed again.Now the Cowboys are looking at a second straight year of missing the playoffs since the remarkable rookie seasons for Prescott and Elliott, who powered Dallas to an NFC-best 13 wins before a divisional round loss to Green Bay.Since a franchise-record 11-game winning streak for an 11-1 record two years ago, the Cowboys are 14-15, including the loss to the Packers.Jones was peppered with questions about Garrett's job security after the loss to the Titans, at one point flatly saying he wouldn't fire him during the season. Anything less than a 6-2 finish would leave Garrett with three winning seasons, and two playoff appearances, in eight full seasons."I don't know how to articulate my patience or lack thereof, and I'm not trying to be smart," Jones said. "I just don't have an assessment of my patience right now."Prescott committed his first two turnovers at home this season in Dallas' first loss at AT&T Stadium. The interception was the game-changer. A fumble while trying to churn for yardage on a sack at his 40-yard line set up Tennessee's go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter.While it's realistic to expect Prescott and Cooper to need time to work together and an offensive line to adjust to an in-season coaching change Authentic Terrance Williams Jersey , the Cowboys are running out of it."As coach Garrett said, we've got a decision to make," said Prescott, who threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns. "We've got to buckle down, lock arms and be together more than ever. Not let anything break us apart."Garrett revealed a possible crack Tuesday. A few weeks after strongly backing Scott Linehan when asked if he still had faith in his offensive coordinator, Garrett had a different tone when asked if he envisioned a scenario where he took over play-calling."Right now, Scott Linehan is going to call the plays on offense," Garrett, who called plays early in his tenure as head coach, said after the Cowboys had just 109 yards total offense in a scoreless second half against the Titans.If the Cowboys lose to the Eagles, not much else will matter, other than the question of Garrett's future beyond this season. Jones declined several chances to address that issue."I think we realize we have eight games to go, we've got a long way to go in this season," Jones said. "We want to play better than we played tonight Womens Allen Hurns Jersey , so I certainly think each individual and coach and front office person is going to have to do better, including me."NOTES: Garrett said rookie LG Connor Williams came out of the Titans game with a knee injury that could require arthroscopic surgery. Any possible line shuffling would appear to be confined to Williams' spot and center, where Joe Looney has filled in all season with four-time Pro Bowler Travis Frederick battling a nerve disorder. The likely candidate to join the group is backup center Adam Redmond, who has done some work in practice at guard in practice. ... Garrett indicated LB Sean Lee will have another extended absence after re-injuring a hamstring. Lee missed three games earlier this year with the same injury. Josh Gordon's troubled tenure with the Cleveland Browns has ended.The team isn't going to help him any longer. He let them down for the final time.The Browns announced Saturday night that it intends to release the former Pro Bowl wide receiver, whose immense talent has been overshadowed by substance abuse that has derailed a promising career.The stunning news came just hours after the Browns said Gordon would miss Sunday's game in New Orleans with a mysterious hamstring injury. Gordon has been suspended by the NFL for most of the past four seasons because of multiple drug violations, and the Browns have been supportive of the 27-year-old for years as he tried to get his life together.Not anymore."This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday," general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. "For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward. We wish Josh well."The team provided no specifics about what prompted their decision to part ways with Gordon. He reported to the team's headquarters earlier in the day, and spokesman said Gordon was evaluated by doctors and the decision was made to keep him home because of the hamstring.Gordon posted a message on his Instagram account thanking the city of Cleveland."This place will always feel like home to me," Gordon said. "''I'm extremely honored and blessed to grow up and start a life amongst such a passionate and motivated group of individuals. It's been a hell of a journey with you guys. I wish all of you nothing but the best."Gordon went on to thank the Browns "for having me. I'll never forget me time here. Same book, next chapter."He ended the post with, "P.S. Anybody need a deep threat WR??"It's unclear what his imminent release means for Gordon's playing future. Gordon was in the league's substance-abuse program and if he failed another drug test http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.c...frazier-jersey , he could be facing more discipline.It's possible the Browns will try to trade Gordon before Monday so they can recoup something for a player whose has wasted his massive potential. If Cleveland releases Gordon, he'll be a free agent and can sign anywhere.Losing Gordon is a major blow to Cleveland's offense. The Browns have receivers Jarvis Landry, rookie Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins, but none of them poses the same deep-field threat as the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Gordon who has breakaway speed.The Browns have had negotiations with former Dallas star Dez Bryant, but the sides have not been able to work out a deal.Gordon missed three weeks of training camp this summer to undergo counseling and treatment, and he recently said he was in a good place mentally and physically.Gordon played in last week's season opener against Pittsburgh, his first appearance in a Week 1 game since 2012, when he was a rookie.On Wednesday, Gordon, who played 69 snaps last week, said he was glad to have the opener behind him and was looking forward to playing the Saints."Physically I felt great," he said. "It was good to get that experience and that feeling underneath me, especially an overtime game Womens Antwaun Woods Jersey , the weather and everything, the amount of snaps and reps, it's good for my body to feel that. I feel great now. I felt great during the game, it was just good to see that my motor was at a decent point at that late in the game."Gordon was expected to have an expanded role this week against the Saints after being targeted just three times in a 21-21 tie against the Steelers. He caught a game-tying, 17-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, but was mostly used as a decoy.Gordon started the opener despite coach Hue Jackson saying he wouldn't be on the field for the first snap as punishment for missing camp. Jackson blamed Gordon's appearance on the first play a "mistake" and "miscommunication," and Gordon said he was shocked to be on the field.Jackson refused to elaborate on the situation this week, saying he and the coaching staff wanted to "move on."Gordon emerged as one of pro football's most dynamic players in 2013, when he led the league with 1,646 yards receiving and scored nine touchdowns. However, he's been in a downward spiral since and Gordon by Commissioner Roger Goodell for the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons.He sat out the first 11 games last year before returning for Cleveland's final five games, and caught 18 passes for 335 yards and one touchdown.His teammates had been encouraged by Gordon's commitment to staying clean and turning his life around.
