Having suffered two defeats in their last three, Coleman may have felt that a clash with a Bees side that had not won any of their previous three games either may have been a good opportunity for Sunderland to get a rare win.
However, it was Brentford who ended their wait for a victory as they scored twice inside the first half-hour to essentially kill the game off as a contest before it had barely got going.
A number of Coleman's squad underwhelmed in the defeat - all of the team except Joel Asoro perhaps - but Jones seemed to be the player who disappointed the fans the most at the Stadium of Light.
Like many of his teammates, the 30-year-old has not enjoyed a particularly good season and the Black Cats fans cannot understand why Coleman tries to persevere with the full-back.
Sunderland now face an absolutely vital game in midweek as they take on fellow strugglers Bolton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium, and it seems that many supporters are hoping that Jones will not be in the side for that game.
Here is what some of the fans made of Jones' display in the latest display...
I was shouting ‘Billy Jones, please retire from playing football’ at the match, yesterday. The thing is, he already has. #safc— Mark Robinson (@robo_mark) February 18, 2018
Billy jones is one of the worst players ever to pull on a SAFC shirt, about on a par woth Gareth Hall!!— PA (@SAFC2403) February 17, 2018
Billy Jones would be that kid who neither ‘captain’ would pick and be left till last for the break time playground kickabout at school. But for some reason, Coleman picks him every week #SAFC— Rob Teasdale (@teasdaley90) February 17, 2018
Honestly back Coleman but how can you justify keeping Billy Jones in team and dropping Oviedo and call it tactical decision #SAFC— ftm (@Safcftm2016) February 17, 2018
