    More like if Romo is smart, he'd get out of Dallas and make several more million elsewhere due to actually having a prolonged career from not being knocked out of the game due to a shoddy o-line.

    Red Ball had half of 2010 as well. And started with a lot more talent and a franchize QB. How do YOU miss the distinction

    Half a season with a team that had all but given up. There's your distinction.

    Yeah, also a team that knew they were playing for their JOBS.

    That's the thing about starting 1-7. Pretty much every coach's dream to walk into such a motivated group. And so starkly different from the motivation of every team ever where the coach has just been fired.

    Hmmm..

    how much blame for "giving up" does an OC and HC-in-waiting (for 3 years) receive?

    I agree with this.
    The team picked it up completely after Wade got the boot. You'll almost always see this the first few games after a new coach takes over, but even moreso if it happens during the season. The urgency was there.

    Plus, after the 7-45 blowout loss to Green Bay, they were 1-7 and nobody was taking them seriously.

    I pretty much discount the second half of that season for either positives or negatives.

    Of course the OC/HC bears responsibility for the performance of his unit and his team. And, of course, you give the guy you hire the opportunity he deserves without cutting bait mid-stream and running off willy-nilly in another direction. It's really not that complicated when it comes down to it.

    so the fact that he has been unable to get that edge back means nothing to you?

    three full years is enough. If we do not show a lot of improvement next season he deserves the boot.
