    this pretty much how I feel. I really like Garrett has a coach. I think he is doing a very good job so far. Has he made mistakes, of course, name someone who hasn't when coaching a game. But overall, I like where this team is, and where it is headed. I also do not feel that Garrett is on any hot seat whatsoever.

    Then I'll just make a new one, asking the same thing and reference this one. As I said, I wanted to gauge the confidence throughout the "process".

    Parcells was too old and had nothing to prove, 1990 Parcells would'nt have left after 4 years and retired from coaching for good. Making Jerry the go to guy for EVERY misstep is convenient and that's all.

    I actally have more confidence in the staff, now that Jerry has given them more control. The less influence he has, the better.

    Coaching is overrated?

    Yeh that's why Parcells took over a team that went 5-11 three season in a row and took them to the playoffs his first season.

    Campo. Parcells. Who cares who the HC is. They are all the same.

    That's fine. There's no need to reference this thread but I don't have a problem with that. There are administrative reasons to not bump old threads. Thank you.

    U both have good points. U have to have players. And some coaches utilize players better as well as running the team well.

    I'll score Garrett a 8.5.

    He's done a good job of bringing in his players to play the kind of football he wants to play.

    He looks like he has finally managed to upgrade the LBs, DBs and OL which is where we were really weak when he took over.

    I think he has a really good staff now that Ryan and Coach D have been sent packing.

    I really like the changes that Callahan and him are implementing on the offensive side of the ball with the 12 personnel and tempo control to create mismatches. I like giving Romo control given his mastery of the offense and football IQ. I like the switch to the Tampa 2 and I think we have pretty good personnel for it right off the bat.

    I think the only thing that holds us back is inexperience on the interior, what kind of play we get out of RT and how quickly we get the Safeties up to NFL speed. I think by the end of the year we will be very good and a threat to go all the way in the post-season.

    Personally i believe that the only reason Garrett is still the head coach and has, what appears to be, solid support from ownership, is the belief that Jerry knows that few if any qualified coaches would subject themselves to the football organizational setup in Dallas.

    I think Jerry was extremely upset about his teams performance in that Washington finale last year, particularly by the offense and it's lack of adjustments to a very predictable and obvious blitz scheme from the Redskins.

    He backs Garrett because he knows how difficult it would be to get a good coach to work under his system in Dallas, unless it's just a late career money grab.

    I have not seen one bit of evidence that Garrett is a good coach in any way.

    I see sloppy play, penalties, lack of discipline on the field.

    I see a coach failing to use press conferences as the powerful tool they can be in motivating both individuals and the team, pressuring opponents, playing to the referees etc.. I don't buy how he's bypassing the media hacks agendas by giving them no material as if this is some brilliant move on his part. We are saying a Princeton grad can't banter with a bunch of media 'hacks'. Coaches and managers throughout all sports use press conferences as a significant part of their organizational methodology. Yes i know Belichick does it too.

    His offense after seven years at the helm has looked so underwhelming that despite his obvious desire to continue as play caller, Jerry felt the need to remove this duty from him completely countering his 'i'll never have a walk around coach' quote.

    I laugh at those who claim how awesome this guy is going to be because it's easy for all to see. Nonsense. Not because maybe he won't be, but because he has yet to show anything. He hasn't differentiated himself from a litany of average at best coaches in this league in any tangible way. It's all hype and hope.

    If anything he comes across as a bit of a gutless wonder, playcalling stripped, brother forced out etc.. he eats a lot of crap, sometimes perception is reality.

    Like everyone on this board i hope he turns out great, i hope he becomes the next Landry. I don't have an agenda, i'm a Cowboys fan. But it's been seven freakin' years, and a very sad to mediocre head coaching stint. Tell me you hope he turns out, don't tell me it's obvious that he will.

    Garrett rating -- 5.0/10

    Big fan of Garrett in terms of preparing the team to play and running practice. Was never a fan of his playcalling and game management. I'm hoping they kill two birds with one stone with Callahan calling the plays.

    I have to say, I'm surprised (and glad) to see so many relatively high confidence scores for JG. I'd have thought the general consensus here re: coaching was much less sanguine.

    6, assuming we're able to stack enough good days on top of good days. Its a process.

    I have confidence in Garrett as a HC.

    My confidence is very shaky regarding both lines though.

    7/10.

    People are finicky. They say they want a young coach with fire and hunger rather than an old retread. However, when a young coach inevitably makes mistakes due to the natural learning curve, people then complain about not hiring someone with enough experience.

    It's a tradeoff. If you want someone young, he's going to make mistakes. This is year 3 of Garrett. I would expect to start seeing dividends.

    No coach is perfect. No team is in the same situation. Grading out a coach's performance is dependent on the metrics you are using.

    For me Garrett is a 8, and that pretty darn good in my eyes.

    This and I would have given him a 5 if he hadn't turned over the play calling duties. Now I give him a 7 with one more year under his belt. I think were going to win 8 or 9 games this season not just because of poor Head coaching but I just don't see any improvement on paper with the OLine. Their mediocrity will force Romo into turnovers as he starts to feel the pressure to pass without a run game and well pay dearly as we have in the past.
