He was on the "Petros and Money" radio show in Fox Sports Radio tonight. They asked him about the moves and he said Jerry is stripping power from Garrett with the coaching moves he's made and that Cowboys players in Hawaii at the Pro Bowl are wondering what's going on. Also said people he's talked to in the NFL are confused by the Kiffin hire.
[View Full Quote]Before Glazer is branded as a "hater", he actually said in this interview that he thought the team was headed in the right direction under Garrett. He said all the players he's talked to said he gained a lot of respect with how he guided the team through the Josh Brent debacle. I believe his exact quote was that he "they had something good going on there" before Jerry intervened. He said he'd rather have Garrett calling plays than Bill Callahan.
Just passing the info along.
Well, Glazer is one of the few guys that actually has some inside info and he doesnt just make crap up like Werder does. So, if he says that Jerry is stripping powers from Garrett, you can believe it.
Now, is this a good thing or a bad thing? I think this is a good thing no matter which side of the fence you sit on regarding Garrett. If you think he is a complete idiot and has no business being HC, then you are happy Jerry is stripping Garrett of responsibilities. If you are a Garrett supporter you are happy as well because Jerry chose to strip Garrett of powers instead of just flat out fire him.
What I think happened was that Jerry and Jason had a nice long talk on the plane (after everybody else was told to get off) and Jerry broke it down for Jason, that he desperately wants him to succeed but 8-8 seasons are not going to be tolerated.
That brings us to 2013 and even the most hard core Garrett supporters realize that this is the make or break season. There is virtually no way Jerry can keep Garrett on and sell it to the fans if this team does not make the playoffs. Simply stated, if this team does not make the playoffs Jason Garrett will be fired at season's end.
I am pretty sure this was explained to Garrett on that plan in no uncertain terms.
