    No doubt I have been as hard on Garrett as anyone. But I have to give the new River Boat Doody props for Sunday night. loved how he went for it. Fake punt, going for it on 4th down in overtime.

    Looks like his walnuts finally dropped. Well done. If Garrett ever morphs into a capable coach this may be the day we said it all began. The Doody of old would have played NOT TO LOSE and we would have lost.

    I will let his team do the talking, I have defended him long enough. I don't think he is anyone puppet, I think he has a very good grasp of this game and I think his players will always play hard for him.

    Well, He has a 6-1 record heading to Cleveland. In the past l have ripped him, at this point he has done a good job.

    Best O line in football, Best RB in football, Best Rook QB (and better than most vets) in football. Surrounded by good staff.
    Tell me how JG is great again?

    Agreed! I only hope he doesn't blow tne playoffs with his poor coaching and situational management. He is still a liability. Heck, they could dig up Landry and He could win with this Club. To Garretts credit...how much input did he have in assembling this Offense? That might be this strong suit.

    I want to see consistency. If we start playing in championship games I'll change my opinion of him.

    Yeah because the rookies are coaching themselves. Seems last years disaster was all Garrett fault but magically once they are winning Garrett has little to do with it. I always find this interesting. The Garrett critics would rather cut off their own nose to spite their face than to ever give due credit.

    I never said he doesn't deserve credit.. I'm saying not many COULD fail with this team. Big difference. Parcells won games with a ton less. JG has lost games with a ton more. I just remain skeptical for now. It's a great run, hope it continues.

    Many never gave this team a chance including many here who had Dallas as nothing more than an 8-8 at best. People who think Garrett is just standing around during the week are crazy, he is very active in coaching this team and these players are not coaching themselves. We have no big stars on defense and we have rookies who are not coaching themselves who are finding success. Parcells had talent in Dallas he had a defense who could put pressure and a very good offense with TO (the player) and Romo yet did not do much. I respect Parcells but did nothing in Dallas.

    So he was just standing around last season and not coaching? Because he surely wasn't a great coach last season. He couldn't coach any one last year.

    No he and his team failed. There are reasons but in the end as a HC he is responsible. I don't make excuses for him but I will not avoid giving him his just dues as well.

    It is way too early to crown Garrett. Last year should have taught everyone that. That being said, kudos to Garrett for a great season so far. I hope this continues and we have a "Super" season and continue to have success next year. Nothing will ever erase the mistakes he made during his OJT and the fact he was absolutely not ready to be an NFL coach when he was promoted but hopefully he will continue to do well in the future. I still find it sad we wasted Romo's prime years while Garrett was learning to be a coach.

    Credit where it's due. He's had this team prepared and ready to go this year all year long. They're 8-1 and he is definitely part of that success just like everyone else.

    Take out your team's veteran, Pro Bowl starting quarterback (Tony Romo), but not before you take out his backup (Kellen Moore), both before the beginnig of the season. Now take out your starting RB, a thousand yard rusher the season before.

    Just to make it a little tougher, suspend both of your starting DE's one for 4 games, the other for 14 games. Let's top that off with a lifetime suspension of your designated starting middle linebacker.

    Not good enough? Okay, knock off your former First team All Pro and Pro Bowl WR for 5 games. Can't forget that emerging elite shutdown CB, get him out of there! Here, take a rookie 6th round pick instead.

    The icing will be a complete resurgence of your entire division which will have a strong likelihood of including three teams in the playoffs. Sadistically, we'll also add in a schedule that includes the toughest division in the AFC, famous for the ferocity of their defenses.

    Take your "project" QB, 4th round pick and stick him in the starting lineup. Tweak the schedule just a little more by arranging a "murderer's row" of savage defenses like the Vikings, Steelers, Ravens, and Giants, all top 10 against scoring.

    Handicap this poor Head Coach with the most intrusive, volatile, unpredictable and impulsive owner in professional sports.

    Now....Beat every opponent except one in the first 15 games of the season. Be sure to clinch homefield advantage throughout the playoffs after 14 games. Oh, lets make your rookie RB the leading rusher in the league and your rookie quarteback only gets to throw 4 INT's for the first 15 games.

    .....And we might, mind you, MIGHT decide to make you the Coach of the Year.

    Can't say enough about this guy. He kept a young team focused and throughout a season of HUGE turmoil with Romo benching, was able to get wins and even stayed fighting in Philly in a meaningless game. He always realized the strength of the team and relied on it. When your defense is so untalented in a win or go home, they got exposed. He had some mistakes (huddle penalty,) etc. but he did an amazing job with a patchwork D.

    He is turning into the Marvin Jones of the NFC.
