Troy Aikman: Cowboys Organization Needs a "Complete Overhaul"

Troy Aikman is calling for the Cowboys to use nuclear option

The loss to the Titans dropped the Cowboys to 3-5 at the midway point of the season, leaving them two games behind the NFC East-leading Washington Redskins.

At the bye, Jones traded for wide receiver Amari Cooper, sending the Cowboys' first-round pick in 2019 to the Oakland Raiders, and Garrett fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander and replaced him with Marc Colombo. "We want to play better than we played tonight, so I certainly think each individual and coach and front office is going to have to do better, including me".

That 2017 season that yielded nine wins, which would require a 6-2 record for the Cowboys from this point on, did ultimately result in the firing of/changing of seven coaches below Garrett and his coordinators. The Dallas' defense, for the first time this season, looked average at best, and the offense, reverted back to a confusing mix of penalties, sacks and inconsistency.

"I'll assure you that this is a concern of his", Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on the KRLD/105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning. Nevertheless, they're a popular organization that people care deeply about and they are struggling.


The Cowboys next face the division-rival Eagles on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 8:20 p.m. ET. Prescott threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns, but threw an interception, lost a fumble and was sacked five times. The momentum shifted, Cowboys' players acknowledged, and neither side of the ball showed any ability to recapture it. "That's' something you try to instill in your team, it's a 60 minute game". So to me, if you're asking me, I'd say there has to be a complete overhaul of the entire organization. We're not in anything if we don't play better.

"Go through the list and this team, over a long period of time, has been what it's been", Aikman said. And I'm making changes and I have made changes this past week. "If we were going to make changes going forward, it's not something we would discuss".

Jones took a similar stance in 2010 when Dallas started 1-7 under Wade Phillips.

One major college football head coach is being mentioned as an option. Instead, after a 45-7 loss at Green Bay on November 6, 2010, Jones fired Phillips and replaced him with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
