How many guys did Parcells have to cut that had big contracts? You just can't go around cutting everybody in the salary cap world.
Were you around when Jimmy Johnson was winning Super Bowls here? Those teams broke more laws than you can count.
Here, you have a team that hasn't sniffed the postseason in over 3 years, that's once again becoming more famous for arrests than for winning big football games. At least Jimmy's team had that going for them.
The point is that, if you have a coach who's not winning games, and also is not really disciplining players and changing the culture here, then you don't have much at all.
A repeat DUI after a tragedy that became a national headline is not something to just brush aside as a non-story. Who's getting through to these players? Garrett said that he was, but here's big evidence that it was just more podium talk.
