The Dallas Cowboys are not going to the playoffs once again in 2012, and Jerry Jones I'm sure is scouting potential replacements for Jason Garrett. You have to wonder what made Jason Garrett stand out to Jerry Jones so much that he was content with Garrett replacing Wade Phillips. Garrett is nothing but an offensive coordinator trying to be a head coach, and he has proven that he is not head coach material.2012 has seen the importance of coaching in the NFL, that is the reason why Jason Garrett should be fired… Read more

  • I understand why people think Jason Garrett is not head coach material and I don't necessarily disagree, but I really don't think anyone knows. In my opinion Jason Garrett has never been allowed to be a "real" head coach. A real head coach has absolute authority over players....not personal per se, but players attitude and discipline. A real head coach also needs to make better game day decisions too and I get that he does seem to make some poor ones at times, however I think it's possibly all related to worrying about what Jerry will think. I like Jason Garret and think he has a real shot at being a great head coach, but we will probably never know. Keep in mind that, while Parcells had some success, no one has had any real success since Jimmy and Jimmy ran the whole show regardless of what the delusional owner would like us all to believe!! So, if there are 5 candidates or 50, it will make little or no difference until Jerry is 6 feet under just like his hero Al Davis, because in two to three years we'll have this same old conversation. I hate that a good person's career will be tarnished by an egomaniacal owner who will never again let any other person take credit for any success that may come the Cowboys way. If Jerry really wants to win and restore the Cowboys to the greatness I grew up watching ( I'm 50 years old) he has a perfect model to copy. Look how Clint Murchison ran the club or more accurately allowed Tex Schramm to! If that is too close to home for his fragile ego, then he can look at the Patriots and Bob Craft or the Giants and the Mara family or even the Steelers and the Rooney family. I have zero hope that Jerry will ever change and I can predict what he would say if he were to read this.."I guess you didn't like those three super bowls we won in the 90's with the exact same structure in place we have now?". Yes Jerry I did, but while you were counting jocks and not concerning yourself with being a celebrity or a "football" man, Jimmy Johnson drafted and traded for draft pics to assemble possibly the most talented group of players in the history of the NFL and you had absolutely nothing to do with that!!! So do us all a favor and get over yourself and allow that to happen again!!!
  • Here here...I couldn't agree with you more!
    Been a Cowboy fan since '65 (55yr old now) and have never seen the likes of JJ. He is a cash making machine who thinks he knows football as well. He is also highly insane to keep thinking his (football) way is the right way. The 'Boys return to prominence will coincide with Jerry Jones hiring a football guy(bill cower?) and giving him full control. Read FULL CONTROL Jerry, over football matters.
    just my 2 cents.../
