NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Giants, Monroe

Is Cowboys owner Jerry Jones undermining coach Jason Garrett? There’s a pattern of Jones making Garrett look bad and the latest example is the team’s handling of linebacker Rolando McClain,’s Jean-Jacques Taylor opines. Jerry Jones/Jason Garrett (featured)

When asked about McClain’s absence from practice, Garrett seemed annoyed as he explained that McClain was dealing with a family matter for the third consecutive week. Jones, meanwhile, gave some the impression that McClain is getting preferential treatment from ownership:

It’s fair to everybody to understand that Rolando’s boys — his family lives in Alabama and he doesn’t live with them. His former significant other is where they are. His offseason is spent with those boys, and that’s an understanding we have when he came through the door,” Jones said recently. “He has to be there to spend time with them, and we expect him to compensate for that. If you look at how his impact when he’s there with us on the field, what he can do for our team. If you look at his background in the NFL, how he’s evolved, I’m glad he’s a Cowboy.”

While you mull that over, here’s more from the NFC East:
