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.
[View Full Quote]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.
RS, I must say that I don't always agree with your take on things, but I think in this case you're exactly correct. I have a very strong feeling that if Payton comes here, all expectations go through the roof, everything starts looking up, and then it all comes back down to earth and everyone is calling for Payton's head within 2 to 3 years as well.
