    It's time for defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin to go home. Since the beginning of the season, defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin has been under scrutiny. Jerry Jones said he still has confidence in defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin on Tuesday, one day after the Dallas Cowboys' 45-28 loss to the Chicago Bears. Instead, Jones said, he expects Kiffin to get to work at improving the defense to get the Cowboys to the playoffs. “He takes it personally. It’s hard on him. It’s very hard on him. When it comes to changes to the defense, Kiffin said he's open to making some, especially if it will help an ailing unit that has allowed two opponents to gain more than 600 yards, another two to gain more than 500 and three others to exceed 400 yards. “I think at different times we’ve responded well to these kinds of games, and that’s happened over the course of this season, where teams have had a lot of yards, they’ve scored a lot of points, and we’ve gotten back to work and made adjustments that we think would help our football team, and we’ve played better,” Garrett said.
