After yet another embarrassing home loss, this time to the Jaguars, Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips got another vote of confidence from owner and general manager Jerry Jones.

Following the 'Boys' 35-17 loss to the Jags on Sunday, Jones told NFL Network's Jason La Canfora that he is "extremely disappointed" in the Cowboys' performance under Phillips this season, but stressed again that Phillips' job is safe.

"I am not in any way for making changes," said Jones. "When I look at the fact that we're in the middle of the season, when I look at the fact we've got a year where we've got ambiguity as far as our season (with the Collective Bargaining Agreement), all of those things will be on my mind."

The owner added that he has never been more "surprised" or "disappointed" in his team.

The way we see it

The Cowboys have not ceased to surprise the NFL with their poor play this season. A common pick to play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium, the Cowboys are 1-6. Jones, who is very in-tune to the new CBA talks, likely has that very much in mind and will let Phillips ride out the season before finding a new coach for 2011.
