    Cowboys' Jason Garrett wins coach of year, ranked 17th best head coach by CBS'

    At this point it should be blasphemy, but apparently Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett still isn’t getting credit for what he’s done in the Big D. Despite winning the NFL Coach of the Year Award in 2016 for his performance in the Cowboys’ 13-3 record, he scores in the bottom half of the league, ignoring him engineering a throwback offense and riding a fourth-round compensatory rookie quarterback to the NFC’s best record.

    Pete Prisco of CBS is just the latest to throw shade at Garrett as he ranked him as the 17th best coach in the NFL.

    He's won one playoff game in 6 seasons.

    One.

    Where would the author rank him? 17 might be a bit low but he's not Top Ten either.

    I'd say that was fair. There area handful of coaches that fall in that 10-20 range and Garrett should be considered one of them. When he consistently gets the Cowboys into the playoffs and wins, then he should be considered a top-ten coach.

    For the most part QBs make coaches. When he has a good QB, he looks good. When he has bad QBs, he doesn't.

    And I quibble with the author's notion that O'Brien isn't better. Took over a 2-14 team, has a winning percentage just below Garrett's, has same number of playoff wins in only 3 seasons, and unlike Garrett, has had winning seasons in Houston despite having largely blahness at QB.

    It's funny, if you're not ranked number one, you feel slighted. There's no in between.

    He has been HC or OC for 10 yrs and already he is ranked 17th best coach. WTH, What other GM would have kept him around this long.

    I wouldn't even say it's him looking good when Romo plays good. I'll give him some extra credit for last year.


    Garrett keeps the players focused and he and the assistant coaches do a good job teaching the fundamentals.

    Where they fail is in the chess side of professional football. They rely almost 100% on their players imposing their will.

    Hopefully he was ranked slightly higher than Chip Kelly.

    I think Garrett did a hell of a coaching job 2016. Look who he lost during the season.
    Yes other coaches loss players thats the NFL but we won 13 games and missed
    the play offs with a back field that GB understood and took advantage of.

    We're out of the coaching carousal. Is he yet a top five coach? Some thought so last year.
    I cant go that far but this year will be telling. Not because we have to go to The SB but
    because we need to continue becoming a better team.
    He's a winning coach. He's proven that.

    How about Adam Gase being ranked #8 after his first year as a head coach!
    :omg:
    But I mean, it's Pete Prisco, so it has no value anyway. The guy is lucky he still has a job at CBS.

    He needs to have another good regular season and some post-season success in order to crack the top 10 (obviously).

    He needs to put back to back good seasons together and win more than a playoff game.

    Prisco is a Grade A moron. I wouldn't trust him to rank quality human beings that played TE in the NFL if it was down to Jason Witten and Aaron Hernandez.

    Garrett is more of a perplexing coach. I still believe that the NFL is about the HC and their ability to create an environment that is good at developing players. It's not about the GM's and their picks (not completely unimportant, but VASTLY overrated). It's not even about the actual talent because too much talent fails at one place and succeeds elsewhere.

    Unfortunately, Garrett has really tried this theory because as good of an environment he's created to develop talent, some real bonehead decisions and awful playcalling tend to hamstring us. But he's still far better than 17th on the list. He's 30-21 in the last 3 seasons and 2015 was a disaster year due to both Romo and Dez getting hurt.

    Again, he's won ONE PLAYOFF GAME in 6 years. So no, he's not exactly a "winning" coach as I would define it. He needs to start delivering in the postseason starting now. Coaches are defined in the playoffs, not what they do in the regular season.

    Belicheck, McCarthy, Carroll, Payton, Tomlin are SB winning coaches who have performed in the playoffs. Reid is a better coach. Then you have guys like O'Brien, Rivera, Arians who might be better.

    The NFCE hasn't exactly set the world on fire the last few years either. But yes, the AFC South is weak.
