    BS (irony in the initials) was a cardboard cut-out using Jimmy's team when he won the SB...his college record is ancient history and irrelevant to a current HC discussion...I can't even believe these threads keep popping up...can't wait for the bye week to be gone....

    I would never support it because it would never happen. Perhaps I should start a few equivalent polls like:

    Tony Dorsett return as RB?
    Deion Sanders return as shut down corner/return specialist/WR?
    Michael Irvin return as WR opposite Dez?
    Randy White return as MLB to fill in for the injured Lee?
    Everson Walls return as CB to give Claiborne someone to learn from?

    I voted yes....probably an emotional nostalgic reaction to the idea. But he wouldn't do it, so moot point.

    Eh, it is a yard stick. When matched against one of the better teams in the league, they fell on their face in a dramatic fashion. It wasn't just a loss. It was a historically bad loss and there is plenty of blame to go around including the perpetually overmatched head coach and the QB.

    However, until this team fixes its overall organizational dysfunction, namely Jerry, none of that stuff really matters. Is Garrett (or could Garrett be) a good coach? Maybe some day. He got the reins too early due to Jerry. His authority was neutered by Jerry. Jerry talks to the press more than he does and contradicts him on a regular basis. Hard to lead a team that way.

    Can Romo be a post season success as QB? Maybe, but until all the other crap is fixed, he doesn't really stand much of a chance. The owner and coach foist the entire offense on his shoulders when Romo's (and the team's) best shot of success is probably an offense that doesn't ask Romo to do as much.

    Unfortunately, as Dallas fans, we're probably stuck with Jerry unless things get so bad he is forced to make real changes. Even then, I'm not sure he will. So, we're stuck trying to find stop gap solutions that are really just an attempt to mask the real issue.

    Cowher is too far removed (and uninterested in) from coaching. I personally think the guy is overrated.

    Group Think? Switzer won one Super Bowl with Jimmy's team. He was part of the fiasco that saw Jerry flush the opportunity for 4 straight Super Bowls down the toilet. He was part of a process of complete cultural rot from which this organization has never recovered. But yeah, he was a good college coach. I actually like him, but he was not a good fit for this organization, something which Jerry seemed not to really care about.

    JG? He's a clueless Ivy league pseudo-coach.

    I would rather wait until the season is over and we don't make a run in the playoffs because as of now there is still time to right this ship. that being said, i'll play along. how about Kyle Shanahan, great offensive mind, look what he did with Tim Tebow.

    How about Mark Dantonio? He turned Michigan State around. They are competitive year in year out. He likes to play great defense force turnovers and be balanced on offense. He's got balls. He just ran a fake punt, if anyone is watching mich st vs Nebraska. MSU is up 34-21 and ranked 16th in the country. He's also like to run a 4-3. He likes press corners and likes to get after the qb.

    52–27 record at MSU. In 2010, Dantonio led MSU to earn a share of the Big Ten Championship after finishing the year in a three-way tie with Ohio State and Wisconsin. He has a 5-2 record against UM. Of the five wins, three came against former Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez and two against current Michigan football coachBrady Hoke. Michigan State's streak of 4 wins in a row tied Michigan State's best in the rivalry. Dantonio's record also includes a 3-3 mark for the Megaphone Trophy, which goes to the winner of the MSU vs. Notre Dame rivalry football game. Dantonio served as an assistant coach at MSU from 1995-2000, and was Ohio State's defensive coordinator during their 2002 national championship season.[10] and was also an assistant atKansas and Youngstown State University. He is considered a defensive-minded coach and has been on the coaching staffs of Glen Mason, Jim Tressel and Nick Saban.

    Not a bad choice. You cant just put this on recruiting either as UM and OSU are all over the midwest recruits.

    Mich St has the best defense in the big ten statistically. And they run a 4-3. They always over achieve under Dantonio. I think he's be a great fit to be our HC. And I think our personnel fits what he likes to do on defense as far as press corners go.

    He doesn't get enough credit. He should be considered for top HC jobs.
