    I thought I had seen every possible topic on this forum.

    I was wrong.

    Garrett lead Cowboys to 8 wins last season. Campo lead the Cowboys to 5 wins per season, I think Jason is doing a better job at this point.

    I don't really see the difference in 5 and 8 wins.

    Garrett led the Cowboys to 3 more wins last season than Campo's teams. Campo had FAR less talent to work with than Garrett. Campo's teams had an awful QB situation. They had OL's that were far worse than the Cowboys have now. The RB situation was bad and Campo had to deal with 2 years with no first round draft pick because of the Joey Galloway trade.

    Don't get it twisted I was no Campo supporter far from it but he didn't have a Tony Romo, Demarcus Ware, Jason Witten, Sean Lee and a lot of other solid players like Garrett has.

    To be honest I'm surprised those teams managed to win 5 games each of those seasons. The talent was that bad! The Cowboys played at least 5 different QB's during Campo's tenure trying to find one who could play. Give Garrett Quincy Carter, Chad Hutchinson and Anthony Wright and see if he could win more than 5 games. His current team may only win 5 games if the light doesn't come on this Sunday.

    I don't miss the Campo years. Having said that, if JG had the players from Campo's teams, I'm not sure if JG will win more than 5 games.

    You must've been too young to remember the Campo years. We were terrible and didn't even have the draft picks to show for it. WHy on EARTH would anyone want to go back to that? You miss Clint Stoerner, Quincy Carter, Anthony Wright, Drew Henson and Chad Hutchinson?

    5 and 8 wins usually put you in the same spot come playoff time, at home. But sure, aspire to be 8-8.

    Lol I was like in first grade or something like that. Still remember it was like yesterday. I remember telling my family man we suck.

    I'm pretty sure my first curse word was during a Cowboys game. :laugh2:

    I'd never argue that Campo was a good head coach but the man had zero chance for success here.

    We simply had no QB or OL in those years, and when you don't have those things you have no shot. We also had unbelievably bad luck with injuries to go along with the obvious lack of talent.

    The D was solid at times but not good enough to make up for a bad offense. It was a bend-but-don't-break D, not a playmaking D.

    See i'm 25 now so I was too young to really enjoy those championships but old enough to understand we the pain it was to be a Cowboy fan because I remember the Campo years like it was yesterday. Nobody should want to go back to that. It was terrible. Parcells wasn't perfect here but i'm thankful that he was here.

    The situation is not much better now. If you're fine with being mediocre, sure. But if that's not acceptable, it still sucks.

    Well it depends on how you feel about this team. I feel this team is a 10 to 11 win team if it plays to its potential. Those Campo teams if they played over their heads were stilla 5 win team. There's a BIG DIFFERENCE and there's no comparison. We're 2-2. If we were 2-2 under Campo he probably wouldn't have got fired when he did.
