Great post. Garrett is still owed between 6-8 million, perhaps more, the next two seasons. Jerry is frugal by nature. He isn't going to fire Jason while he has any value to the team and watch that money turn into water. Jason has it seems organizational skills, can contribute something, even if its only at the level of a QB coach or film study. If things go south this season, Jason may get "promoted" into some kind of GM-by-title or other such maneuver while listening to smooth jazz on his sideline headphones. Besides the dough owed to Jason I think Jerry may be too proud to fire him, seeing as he was Jerry's personal project/enthusiasm over nearly the past decade. With Callahan getting play calling, Jason may even be more stripped of power than we can possibly imagine at this moment. In the weeks after Jason was promoted mid-season to HC a cupla years ago, he got players' attention much more than Wade had been able to do in locker room speeches etc. - you could see that on TV - players gave Jason the benefit of the doubt about "greatness to come". ... But today, after a few years of competence as OC, playcaller, HC but in no way much above-average results demonstrated in anything, players get it just like we do, don't kid yourself. I don't imagine Belicheat makes good motivational speeches either but, sheesh that thing on Peter King's site the other day. I'll quote Parcells once more when asked about whether a certain player has promise - he would say: "I don't know yet, he doesn't have demonstrated ability." ... Still waiting for Jason to show "demonstrated ability." He had above-average offenses only two years - the first with Sparano as co-OC and also in 2010 when Wade was fired and you figure teams were running scrubs on D because we were already so far behind, at least the first part of the season when we went 1-7.
