    Oh wow, he relied on Ernie Zampese when Norv Turner was OC in 1993, the first year Garrett was here, meaning this too was Garrett's first experience under Zampese, and that too, as a guy who was riding the pine the year before under Norv...

    So you're telling me that the players actually have to execute what the coach is preaching? Interesting thought.

    Yes the offense is simple and not creative. That is the truth. It requires superior execution. I do read what I post. Watch the 90s Cowboys offense and post how creative you think it is.

    that may have worked in the 90s when we had a clearly superior team with no cap ( i know the cap at the tail end of this)
    in this day and age of parity, you better be creative on offense or you will get your butt whupped (like we are)

    my point was, you are making a great case for a new offense (ie get rid of garrett)

    You heard Wade is not doing good in Houston?................Only the league's number one ranked defense................I think you heard wrong, might want to catch up on current events.

    And if Wade "wasnt all that"..............2 division titles and a playoff victory...................where does Opie and his 500 tour rank?

    How you doing Hostile.

    You hit the nail on the head about Garrett's biggest problem..................He plays not to lose instead of playing to win......................I hate that mentality.

    You still feeling confident in our sig bet?

    Not doing well as in the win-loss column as a caretaker coach. but I did not know how his defense ranked.
    But enlighten me: How does one win 2 DIVISION TITLES AND A PLAYOFF VICTORY?
    Before the head injury I could figure that one out but please tell me how one do that.

    As to Opie, before he is through he will half twice what Wade has achieved and without a father in the NFL to part the waters.

    That's hilarious. The only reason Garrett has this job is because of his deddy.

    At this point, Forum members are supposed to say:
    Well played, Gimmie, you drew Hostile out. heh

    And, yes, Garrett is like that giant guy Gilligan who was held down by the Liverpudlians.

    Garrett is conservative by nature. I recall another great Dallas Coach who played conservatively and won for many years. Jimma, too, was conservative at times and had the perfect bus driver in Aikman.
    Hey, hostile.:)

    Not necessarily. But you saying halfing a Daddy as an NFL coach didn't help him? Like Wade's son halfing a daddy coaching the Cowboys didn't help junior?
    Ha! I repeat: Ha!
    (dang that hurt. my sinus hurt when I say Ha! ouch!)

    Bottom line in Houston: The HC is done fer. I do not see a scenario that would make Wade the HC. The Texans are a bad team, good defense or not. Wade has been blessed by a daddy who was a HC in the NFL, has usually been on good teams (San Diego) and then Houston when the going was good.

    what a wacky world: forumites assailing Garrett and praising Wade.
    Someone beam me up to anywhere.

    Since you can predict the future as to all these wins Opie is going to get, how about helping a brother out with some lotto numbers.

    I cannot tell what flaw anyone has. He's the guy in charge and I cannot really say it's this or that.

    But, during the Giant's game, I saw a little bit of a difference in the offense with more play action. And, I saw some receiver routes that I have not been seeing. Plus, the Cowboys played hard to learn how hard it really is.

    But, to me that was not a flaw. But, Garrett is the HC.

    And, I saw a little swagger that I have not seen in a long time.

    I see what you are saying and I certainly don't want to beat a dead horse.

    I've seen Garrett botch end of games that a high school coach couldn't mess up, all the while with that emotionless somewhat empty glare baffoonish look. Lately, he'll start smiling after such blunders and also start clapping.

    I don't know if he knows something noone else does with that Ivy League mentality or if he is just really that dumb. Either way, I haven't been impressed.

    Things are okay. Yes, I am confident in the bet. I wouldn't have made it unless I was.

    What are you trying to say here? You do realize that Norv's offense and Zampese's offense were one in the same, right? Turner was Zampese's QB coach with the Rams from 1987-1991. So when Garrett had a year under Norv, he practically had a year under Zampese as well. It's highly conceivable that Garrett knew the ins and outs of the offense before Zampese was even hired.
