    To be fair, we are talking about a Jerry Jones hire. "Realistic" is a very, very loose term.

    I know we will be hugging 8-8 under Garrett. I would rather have the unknown than being sentenced to eternal .500.

    Why? Waste of time. No matter who I list, you wouldn't agree, or you'd say they weren't a realistic hire.

    While the hue and cry speak about this coach and that, the facts are that No coach will make this franchise a winner just by showing up. The lines have to be fixed and Romo has to find his mojo again.

    Just bringing in a coach will mean little with the cap space this franchise owns right now. They cannot be players in the Free Agent market, will draft middle of the road, and have a core of players that are now over 30.

    I would suspect Dallas might find a college coach who is not a name brand looking to move to the pros and will take on Uncle Jerry and his sticking his nose into everything.

    Unless you run a retread out there, Holmgren, Chuckie, Marriucci, or some other guy that cannot get a job as a head coach, you are stuck with college.

    But whatever coach comes in, they are stuck with aging talent, and a young group that struggles with health or running precise routes.

    I believe Garrett is an utter failure and even the little talent this team has is what has prevented him from being Campo part II at three 5-11's.

    But that sketchy talent is still here for the next guy, and the bonus of Jerry wanting to be the focal point will run off any real go-getter that might come from a college where he ran the program and the athletic director stayed out of his way.

    Some will make this out as a reason to not be dissatisfied or vocal about this dissatisfaction. Which I have never understood.

    But the bottom line is this franchise will teeter around mediocre as Romo and Witten and Ware age, and then the deterioration of their skills will push this team back to the Days of the Poodle.

    A head coach is not a quick fix.

    I really dont see much difference between Campo and Garrett.................both are the only head coaches in franchise history to never take their team to the playoffs.

    Pluse Garrett has way more talent that Campo had and can only ink out 3 more wins a year? (8-8 vs. 5-11)

    The only thing "dramatic" going on right now is Opie's inability to beat anybody with a winning record.

    You cared enough to quote, and you'll likely care enough to quote this too. Prove me wrong

    There are probably a lot of upset fans who'd agree with you in this right now. Misery loves company. I don't think the consensus in the NFL community would agree with you, but then, that's hard to say definitively, one way or another, so we'll just have to agree to disagree on how those two coaches compare.

    It is a tough call. However, even Jerry cant come up with as much nonsense as has been suggested here in the Twilight Zone. Only the Zoners could make Jerry not look so bad. Kinda like only Obama could make Hillary not look so bad.

    Neither is this one. The only difference is the key players are all three years older.

    We've basically treaded water over the past three years whilst simultaneously screwing the cap up. Not exactly an achievement.

    I don't know. You have to add Murray, Smith, Carter???, Lee, Wilcox maybe, Williams, maybe Randle, Durant (starting to grow on me), Fred, Leary maybe, ??Holloman's a stretch right now, Bass, Crawford and I'm probably missing a few. Not all starts but solid players, good backups, and possibles. I definitely think the talent level is definitely better than before all around. We just can't keep it on the field.

    To be fair, the Cowboys' defense was very good in 1999, before Campo became head coach, and he was already on the coaching staff.

    That defense kept us in a lot of games. Zimmer where are you when we need you??? Mostly facetious remark guys. Enough truth there to be edgy.

    Id rather fire Garrett, screw it up completely and win 4 games a year to add talent to this roster than to keep winning 8 games under Garrett

    I think that an interesting question is what kind of coach Jerry thinks that he needs after Jason. There don't seem to be a lot of clear trends in head coach hiring like there were a few years ago (primarily coordinators). It appears to be more of a mixed bag of retreads, coordinators and college coaches.
