    Exactly. This is just a rumor of talk about Les Miles wanting the job, it doesn't even mention JJ wanting Miles. His name has been brought up before and he wasn't brought in then. It won't happen in the future either if Garrett is let go.

    That would be a horrible move by Jerry.

    Jerry is supposedly a big Bob Stooops fan. I hope if he went the college route he would look hard at Kevin Sumlin. BTW I want no part of Stoops.

    The way Jerry already stated that we'd be in the 43 for years to come, and after signing Kiffin and especially Marinelli to multiyear deals, I think Jerry already has replacements in mind, and they're either offensively-minded HCs or they're 43 coaches who are fine with the current defensive staff.

    And I very much doubt it's anyone from college.

    To me I hope Garrett either wins big or loses big.

    Win enough to show he has a clue how to get there by leading coaches who do the mechanical thinking to get the right things happening on the field.

    Or tanks like Campo and he is then sent packing.

    This 8-8 is like 5-11 to me. And as he stacks those mediocre seasons together, I don't see this intellectual coach leading the team.

    RKG be hanged, I am not the first to suggest this guy has game management problems.

    So Jason, lead like the leader you are paid to be or push out another suckage season and hit the bricks.

    There is no middle ground for me with this guy any longer.

    Mike Holmgren would be my guess.

    I like Sumerlin but find it ironic that people have called it a gimmick offense but now it would be alright if he was in Dallas?

    Why don't people like Les Miles? I thought he was a solid football coach

    Les has been a successful college coach because (1) he is a great recruiter and (2) surrounds himself with great college coordinators. Neither of those attributes would translate to the pro game. He is an awful game manager and a terrible X's and O's coach. Also, don't let the "Mad Hatter" nonsense fool you -- his preferred offensive style is boring and overly conservative, and only effective due to LSU's talent superiority over most teams. That won't be the case in the NFL.

    some coaches love college football and have no interest in Pro Football. But certainly anyone that was thinking in that direction would have the Boys on his list.

    I see no reason Dallas would be dipping into the college ranks and if they did I wouldn't want Saban or Miles.

    I can see Miles looking at an out. He's being out recruited by Bama and TAMU in his own division.

    I 'm not sure Garrett's job is on the line. While I'm sure Jerry wants to go deep into the playoffs, as does everybody else, the Cowboys' failure to do so will not necessarily be Garrett's fault.

    everyone not named jones job is on the line to some extent.
    tend to agree with you it isn't some hot seat with jerry coiled to strike.

    and if he does strike i am guessing he'll revert to 180 degree thinking and go very proven as opposed to young and innovative.
    holmgren and gruden more likely than anyone else imho.

    I certainly hope his job is on the line. Another .500 season is not acceptable. The clock is ticking on Romo and Ware and we have been spinning our wheels far too long. We have seen that the Garrett head coach / offensive coordinator combo has been a miserable failure. I hope giving up the offensive reigns makes him a better head coach. If we have another .500 season with Garrett just being a head coach then we will know beyond a shadow of a doubt he is not the man for the job and it is time to move on. I would suspect Jerry would bring in Holmgren if Garrett fails again this year due to our window starting to close with Romo & Ware's age. I for one have high hopes that Garrett has a lot of success being just a head coach.
