that tells me the depth of the Dallas Cowboys is pretty nonexistent it also tells me that more front line (starters) talent is needed.
I had thought this team was a draft away now I think it may be 2 drafts away if we are to continue with the injuries at this rate
The rate of injuries probably won't continue. And it's especially unlikely that we'll get hammered like we have this season at maybe two of our three weakest spots.
As I said, I don't mind admitting that I'm disappointed in Garrett's team this season. He's underperformed expectations, there's no doubt about it. I'd definitely give him another year--that's a no-brainer , and maybe two if we see tangible evidence of improvement next season. I can give him a pass this year on the record, but, in a shocking change of events, visionary could be right that we're moving goalposts on evaluating the coach if we keep pointing to the roster. At some point the turnovers and the penalties and the mental errors have to stop, for good. When that finally happens, the wins will follow, but we're really not seeing significant signs of that happening yet.
Is that 'par for the course' for a die hard Garrett supporter? Maybe. I don't think it is. I think it's a pretty fair approach to building a team over several seasons when you think you have the right guy. I think the alternative is knee-jerk fan overreaction at best, which, as we all know, is the lifeblood of the message board here. I guess we'll see what the Joneses think here soon enough. I'm hoping they're more patient than most of our fans seem to be.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
