    At this point, I would rather have a Magic 8-Ball as head coach. JG was a bad hire, it's time to cut our losses and move on. Jerry may be incapable of finding a good HC, but we've already seen what Ginger Clap is capable of and there's no point in wasting more time. Garrett is just not the RKC.

    I dont go by what the "consensus in the NFL community" thinks.......................I go by the scoreboard.

    Scoreboard says Garrett and Campo are about the same.

    People who say the 2010 team quit on Wade like to overlook the obvious fact that in doing so they also quit on Wade's second in command, the Red Jesus. I find it embarrassing that they can look past the fact that he has been in charge of this awful offense for seven years, I swear, Mike Shula would do a better job with the talent JG has.

    He has drafted 3 second round tight ends for crying out loud, and why? To copy New England's style, but he can't, he does not have the ability to do so, both Fasano and Bennett went on to have better careers elsewhere than in this sad stale and boring offense. I am sure Escobar will have the same fate.

    And what about Dunbar? Our Darren Sproles...he has caught one pass this year, ONE, how utterly unimaginable do you have to be to acomplish that in 10 games. I mean, come on man!!! And Dez got 2 freaking targets against the Saints because he was "double covered", I'm sorry but that's a crime.

    The press tells him we need balance and what does he do? He runs on 11 of the first 14 plays, WHYYYY????

    The team has no identity, no personality, it is a bland, boring mirror image of its head coach, clapping their way to another mediocre 8-8 season.

    Please make it stop.

    Yep, the same team that only 6 months previous, went down to New Orleans and manhandled the 13-0 Saints for three quarters en route to a signature win under Phillips' tenure.

    It is impressive how people who cling to Garrett still get a lot of mileage out of how the team quit on Phillips, yet just simply (or conveniently) forget that Garrett was right in the middle of that. While he may have been the OC at the time, let's not pretend he was not at King Jerry's feet at his throne on nearly equal grounding to Wade Phillips. I cannot think of many offensive coordinators who have been able to hold their jobs for seven straight years, let alone find another who has split the two, being promoted to head coach during that span. And it is not even the "talent" that Garrett has squandered. He has had his system in place, undisturbed for a good chunk of a decade and the same QB is finding himself struggling to run it even now.

    It really amazes me how much patience Jones has shown Garrett and very little to show for it.

    Do people even remember the first game of that season? Where dumb-dumb called the most pointless play in the world right before half? Where the mental midget Choice tried fighting for yards for some inexplicable reason and coughed the ball up? The game his offense scored 7 points?

    Likewise. Not a slam on Zimmer but we need to break away from Jones' comfort zone.

    I saw Ken Whisenhunt's name mentioned in another thread and I think he would be a good candidate as well. He did a great job in Arizona when he had a quality quarterback and I think he's doing well in San Diego and has rejuvenated Philip Rivers.

    He was also able to put together a good defensive staff under Ray Horton before he was let go.

    I think what did him in was when Kurt Warner retired.

    He's not a flashy name, but I would like to see what he could do with Dallas' offensive talent and I think he is a coach who may actually take the job under the current conditions.

    He will likely get a look from someone. I would be shocked if it were Dallas.

    It's a sad day when fans of the Dallas freaking Cowboys are defending perennial 8-8 seasons for fear of getting worse. It's a sad day when fans think this is the best it gets.

    We lost that game 13-7. Garrett's offense gave up more points than Phillips' defense did. Unbelievable.

    And then Garrett hid from the media and had to be almost literally cornered by them a few days later to even talk about that play. Accountability -- right.

    New HC will do little to change anything. Just like new OC or DC will. What else can they do? they already switched from 3-4 to 4-3. They have brought in authoritarian HC (parcells) to creampuffs (Phillips). The run blocking scheme has been changed. Look there is nothing left to change except changing your QB and GM.
