Updates from Tuesday, Dec. 31

Jerry Jones confirmed that the Cowboys are moving forward with Jason Garrett as the team's head coach (via CBS Sports' Will Brinson):

"I think what is important here is I haven't given any consideration," Jones said. "I like what we're doing, I like what he's doing as a head coach. Yes we are [keeping Jason Garrett] going forward."

The show hosts, justifiably, asked how Jones justifies keeping Garrett after another .500 season.

"I justify it that … we have been in it, right there playing for it, in the last game for the last three years," Jones said. "I'm in complete step with our fans that want more than 8-8. So that you don't have to be playing for the NFC East championship in the last game every year. That's where we can have improvement. We won some games that were hard fought. Having said it, I think there is a positive to have the team right there in a position to win the East, fighting for it.

"Certainly for my mind I'm prepared and was very clear with my decision on Jason."
