WATCH: Cowboys' Players Ignore Coach Jason Garrett's High Five
During the Dallas Cowboys' rough road loss against the New York Jets on Sunday the team appeared to be quite defeated in the fourth quarter, and refused to high five head coach Jason Garrett on the sidelines. The Cowboys comeback attempt fell short and they dropped to 3-3 with the 24-22 loss to the previously winless Jets.
With less than three-and-a-half minutes left in the game, after Jets' kicker Sam Ficken kicked a 38-yard field goal to make the score 24-16, the Cowboys ran off the field and could barely look at their coach. The video of the cold response Garrett received from his players quickly went viral online.
Sunday's loss to the Jets happened to take place on Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones' birthday, and even though there have been rumors swirling around that Garrett's days are numbered, Jones refused to give those rumors credence. When asked if Garrett's job was in immediate jeopardy Jones said, "Absolutely, not."
As for the team's loss, following a crushing to defeat to the Green Bay Packers a week prior Jones said, "I'm disappointed. I didn't think this would happen." But when asked about Garrett's future he said, "I'm not even coming close to those future type considerations. I'm looking in the future as next week against the Eagles."
Dallas Cowboys' fans, however, don't have the same feeling as Jones. There's even a public petition urging Jones to fire Garrett, which thus far, 213 people have signed. After losing to the Jets, who were 0-4 going into Sunday's match-up, the number of signatures continues to steadily rise.READ NEXT: Colin Kaepernick's Reps Address 'False Narratives' in Open Letter
