    I was just wondering why you love to be so miserable watching something you don't like.

    You are the one that stated that you don't like ANYTHING about this team.

    Big difference between athletic ability and intelligence. Coaching is all intelligence. Maybe you should coach too?

    Because I have seen this team with good coaches with good schemes. I can smell the **** when I see it.

    To respond to rcaldw: I am bitter, and it's not even about me. It's about the very talented players on this team whose careers are going down the drain under this guy. This isn't the first time he's not-so-subtly blamed Tony for INTs, just as one example, and too many people accept it as fact.

    Is Tony perfect? No. But I, like many on here, watched our years of absolute futility under total scrubs and has-beens like Quincy and Hutch and Vinny, and I know how lucky we are to have Romo. But I can already see that his final years are going to be utterly wasted, and yes, it makes me angry for him. I know he makes a lot of money, but I still feel bad for the guy that he's apparently not going to get a chance to play for a better coach who could use him so much more effectively.

    And the same is true to different degrees for players like Witten and Ware.

    If these were the Campo years where we didn't have any talent anyway, it wouldn't bother me so much. But because we have a good group of talented players who really seem to care, it does. What in the world makes Jason Garrett more important than our players?

    This makes zero sense. So players can be questioned, but coaches can't?

    Again, zero sense.

    And BTW, coaching is not all intelligence. What a foolish statement.

    So a dumb person like me can coach the Cowboys? :confused:

    Could you coach them better?

    So, basically, you would have fired Tom Laundry after 1980..

    Although I agree with your position, the words that Chuck 54 posted should be engraved in every fan's mental lobe.

    There are so many examples to back them up that's it would take days to name them, including the so called " geniuses " that some fans in here are wishing for.

    I can't argue with that. Luck and timing play a factor in a lot of successes, especially outside of the NFL. It's not just within the league. I do think you could replace talent with intelligence in that statement though. But, yes luck and timing play a role as well.

    Danny White, Tony Dorsett, Drew Pearson, Tony Hill, Doug Cosby, Billy Joe Dupree, Pat Donavan, Herbert Scott, Tom Rafferty, " Too Tall " Jones, Randy White ( my hero), Harvey Martin, Everson Walls, Charlie Waters, Dennis Thurman, Jim Jeffcoat, Hershel Walker..

    None won anything after 1977, most went to a SB and lost, and subsequently, started declining after 1980..


    Coach Landry should have been fired because he wasted all that talent.

    Look, I'm one of Garrett's biggest supporters, and I'm convinced he is going to be a great coach, but this one is a little unfair.

    NFC Championship Game 1980
    NFC Championship Game 1981
    NFC Championship Game 1982
    Playoffs 1983
    NFC East Title and Playoffs 1985

    Well, let me put it this way:

    Are the Patriots any less talented than when they won 3 SBs in 4 years ? Is " Billycheat " dumber now than he was then ? Or is it the fact that in both SBs he's lost it came down to, pretty much, one mind blowing pass and catch in each one ?

    It is unfair. Coach Landry had been the headcoach of the Cowboys ( at that point ) for 21 great years.. Garrett has been in charge for barely 2 1/2. Saying that Garrett is " wasting talent " because the team has failed to win the ultimate prize so far is ridiculous.

    Oh, I'm with you completely on the impatience shown toward Garrett. My only point is that 3 NFC Championship games in 5 years is hardly wasting talent.

    I personally don't give a **** what Garrett has to say. He's part of the problem here with JJ and Romo.They are all cancers to me. Garrett's offense has been here 6 years and it's still sloppy and inconsistent. How long should we wait for him to figure out just how to run a proper offense? Let alone be a head coach.

    A knuckle head coach, coaching a knuckle head QB, from a knuckle head GM.
