There are ways to coach around having a bad oline and we don't even attempt it.
If we're stuck with Jerry Jones at the very least we have to have a coach that puts his players in the best position for success.
The qualities that a coach has to possess to be successful in Dallas.
He has to have a proven track record of success
. I feel that this is the only way to neutralize Jerry's effect on this ball club. His track record would also give him the authority to shape the culture a valley ranch, a neophite coach (Jason Garrett) will not weld that type of power. Remember, the last time that Jerry wasn't the face of the Cowboys is when BP was coaching and although he didn't get the results we all wanted he did manage to change the culture at Valley Ranch.
He needs to coach with some emotion
. I like Harbaughs, Paytons, and Schianos demeanor and I think that their teams feed off of it. These guys are intense and agressive and their teams play that way. I think Garrett is the quiet, passive coach and I think that our team reflect that on field, we play with little or no emotion.
He needs to be able to get our talent to play at it's highest level
. This is where Jimmy excelled most, Jimmy knew how to push players buttons to keep them on their toes. He, even today, says that all players should play with some type of fear and I 100% agree with him. We need to get away from The Valley Ranch Country Club, but I don't see jason as the type that would want to ruffle any feathers.
He needs to be someone that gives us an x's and o's advantage
, I feel that Jason has not had enough experience coaching to out scheme some of the more seasoned d coordinators. This is some of the effect of being put on the fast track.
Sean Payton possesses these qualities, as of now Jason Garrett doesn't. If we can't get Payton then we need to pursue a coach of this ilk.
