True......but there is something missing in Dallas.
It's a mixture of several things. I don't think Garrett is capable of out-coaching any of the playoff coaches. His limitations were on full display throughout the entire 2012 season. The offense looked unprepared and disorganized in the first half of almost every game. That's a HUGE red flag that the offensive coaching staff is flawed.
Aside from Garrett those other teams have full time GMs while Dallas is saddled with a part time GM/pitchman/celebrity-owner/promoter/businessman.
Also, I have to question if football is the #1 priority in Dallas. A few players who have left the Cowboys have made comments indicating that football is taken more seriously at their new location.
