    It all depends on how Garrett is perceived in the locker room.

    Guys who don't really like Garrett or are indifferent may react as you describe.

    But players who really do like Garrett will likely fight and play harder for him. Jason Witten said when it was announced that Garrett was staying said he was happy about that and essentially that the guys in the locker room would do anything for Garrett. If this is true, then having Garrett in the last year of his deal may be a motivating factor for the players.

    But since we aren't in the locker room, how the players will react to Garrett's contract status is anybody's guess.

    Why do people expect players to bad-mouth their coaches to the media?


    "Hey Witten, what do you think of Garrett not being fired?"
    "O hell no.. He wasn't fired for how bad he was? Man, this sucks. Put that in writing."

    You're right. Players don't tend to badmouth coaches until they're gone. That said, if you go by what's happening on the field, they play hard for him. Much of the on-field talent is limited. The defense still gives me nightmares, tthey play hard with what they have.

    If they give up on him like they did Wade, then the proof will be in the pudding. As it stands, no matter the fans dislike of the man, he seems to own the lockerroom.

    I think 'giving up' on Wade is a rather subjective claim, considering he got them two division titles and a play-off win. It's not like they weren't playing hard. If the loss at Green Bay was the standard, then they also said that the Cowboys gave up on Jason against the Saints and Bears.

    Excellent points...............I agree.

    None of this 9-7/10-6 sneak into the playoffs and get curb stomped for an extension.................We need to see a 11 or 12 win season with at least 1 playoff win to even consider giving "coach in training" an extension

    The double reverse/reverse stuff is always hilarious. It's like the one play Garrett likes to run when he's feeling, as the british say, "cheeky"... but it NEVER works!
