Dallas coach Dave Campo isn't wasting time showing the tape from the Cowboys' 30-point loss against the New York Giants to his players. He's not talking about his uncertain job status, either.
"Anybody that watched the game knows that wasn't acceptable," Campo said Monday, a day after the 37-7 loss. "We're going about it as if this one didn't happen."
Campo said that he'd rather his team focus on Saturday night's home finale against Philadelphia, which beat the Cowboys by 31 points in Week 3.
The loss to the Giants assured the Cowboys (5-9) of their third straight losing season and created more questions about Campo's job status.
Campo insisted his only concern is this week's game.
"I'm not talking at all about my job security," said Campo, 15-31 in his third season. "Any time I take talking about that is going to take away from what I'm going to try to get accomplished. I'm trying to get a young football team as far as it can this year."
The Cowboys have to end the season with wins over Philadelphia and Washington to avoid three straight 10-loss seasons for the first time in franchise history. Only three other NFL coaches have lost at least 10 games in each of their first three seasons: Arizona's Joe Bugel, Cincinnati's David Shula and Tampa Bay's John McKay.
McKay was with an expansion team.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week that he wasn't in the mood for a coaching change, but said part of his final decision about Campo would be determined by the progress made by the team in the last three games.
Jones wasn't available for comment Monday, but after the Giants game was disappointed and noncommittal about Campo's future.
"This is not the time to revisit our staff and what we're doing there," Jones said Sunday. "But we certainly didn't make any progress today. At this point in the season, we should be better, and we're not.
"I have not changed. We are going to look at this thing at the end of the year," he said. "But this wasn't a good step here."
