Neither item should come as a surprise, but Jerry Jones was asked specifically about Wade Phillips’ and David Buehler’s job security on his weekly radio show (The Fan 105.3 FM).
The answer: neither is on the line Sunday.
“I do believe in Wade and the staff and the players,” Jones said. “The thing about it is when you have that kind of commitment one of the No. 1 things you have it for is those situations. Those people are supposed to really be there in hard times. Hard times. That’s when you’ve got to make your best grade if you’re deserving of that commitment and we’re in hard times. That’s why I’m in the saddle with Wade and in the saddle with the staff and the team.”
Asked if Buehler was facing “Judgment Week” against the Texans after missing a field goal in each of the first two games, Jones strongly defended him.
“If I had every kicker in the NFL who missed a couple of field goals, they’d be going and coming every day,” he said.
