What does that even mean? All it means is that no one bothers to do any real analysis. Lovie smith would have kept his job if Minnesota lost week 17. He coaches the bears. How does that make any sense? Rob Ryan would have kept his job if romo scored a touchdown instead of throwing a pick on the final drive of the season. Rob Ryan coaches the defense. How does that make any sense? How many coaches are fired every year because they don't have a quarterback? You don't see fortune 500 companies firing their CEO every other year because profits are down. Why not? Because they don't look at "results". They look at the process. The same process Jason Garrett keeps talking about. The past doesn't matter, what matters is whether the coach has the system and football intelligence and leadership to win in the future. Those things need to be analyzed on their own, not just in terms of wins and losses (that are mostly due to talent). Sometimes a coach should be fired from a super bowl winning team. Sometimes a coach should be promoted on a 2-14 team. That's why I believe in Jason Garrett. That's why I believe in tony romo. This isn't just a rant about rob Ryan (who had the number one defense in the league before the injuries...not that that matters), it's about how ridiculous this entire league is in terms of their personnel decisions.
