Not only do you give him the responsibility of coaching the highest profile franchise in sports but he also has to call plays. Has the head coach/oc been successful? Yes but with more experience coaches not with a virtual neophite.
Think about this, would everyone talk about how much an offensive genius and how bright Garrett was if he'd gone to Eastern Illinois rather than Princeton? I think not.
By the way, I didn't realize that Payton and Romo qb'd at the same college.
I just think it's a lot of nonsense. Monday morning QBing from fans. Just an OL upgrade gives this team a couple more wins and nobody's talking about all these supposed coaching blunders Garrett's made.
The bottom line to me is no matter who the head coach is, he was set up for this. He's the guy paid to take the brunt of the criticism for Jerry's flawed product. He'll eventually pay the ultimate price and get fired and then a new coach will be brought in for the same sacrificial role. Because until the structure changes, you can't win here.
But most fans don't want to admit that so they've got tunnel vision on Garrett. He can be replaced, so he's the problem. He's all that is wrong with this team. There's so much misused and/or ill prepared talent. We're one move away from being a contender and that move is on the way. Next year is our year. Go Cowboys.
The problem is those same fans said the very same thing about the guy they now suddenly covet. Sean Payton. So it's a little hard to take seriously. Seems like a dog chasing it's tail to me.
