    Nothing hypothetical about it.
    Does this validate Jerry? Just bc he didn't get any Interviews means Jerry made the right call? We have the worst defense in the league and Ryan is now coaching a top ten defense. Who got the better end of that deal?

    Alexander What's it going to be then, eh?

    I keep seeing Mike Fisher's Tweets suggesting this a power move by Jason Garrett.

    It is laughable. I guess he is mistaking Jerry Jones' desperate desire to ensure Garrett succeed with an actual shift in control.

    Right now..

    I'd like your short list of HCs who would come in right now and work for Jerrah?

    Couldn't be very impressive.

    And unless it is impressive..

    we'd be better off waiting and drafting and let's see what happens.

    Im tired of rebuilding all the time.

    It's expensive, it delays progress and we will lose some of our good players as a result.

    Sorry..you can blowup your errector set if you want to.

    Not me.

    Like we're supposed to believe Garrett, who was neutered after his second 8-8 season, gained the gravitas to take control back over... and he didn't demand that he call the plays himself.

    It may be a compromise that Jerry is letting Garrett hire someone who is more familiar with the system, but calling this a "Garrett decision" is just ludicrous.

    It's embarrassing that people actually believe this crap, including Fisher. (Insert giggling horse here)

    Who will leave first? The fans or Jerry Jones?

    Put the stat sheet down; do you not agree the run game looked better this year than in years past? The offensive line was crap before Callahan got here, romo was getting sacked left an right and no holes for Murray to run through.

    The running game looked a lot better in 2013 than in 2012, undoubtedly, and I'm sure Callahan had something to do with that. Of course, we also had Travis Frederick instead of guys off the street this year, and more continuity at the other OL positions. The goal-line running game looked a lot better this year too than in years past, but I'm not sure how much of that I'd attribute to scheme. And that's the problem: you're claiming that the improvement is mostly about the change in scheme, but I just don't see anything that supports that.

    Romo was sacked 35 times in 2013 (in 15 games), 36 times in 2012, and 36 times in 2011. I don't see the big change you're claiming. Also, how in the world did Murray manage a 5.5 ypc in 2011 if there were "no holes to run through"?

    And BTW, you're the one who said, "Here's a stat that can't be argued." And now, after I've successfully argued it, you shift to, "put the stat sheet down"? A little consistency would be nice.

    Rebuilding all the time? We're going to be 20 mil over the cap this offseason, we haven't been rebuilding.
    Idk who would want to leave their current job to come here. But trust me their are plenty out there better than JG. Plenty of guys with much more impressive resumes than JG. What he's been trying hasn't worked and his late game blunders are well documented. We're just delaying the inevitable by keeping JG one more year.

    It really does not matter, who calls plays. who coaches, who we draft. We know there will be key injuries, we will blow 2-3 games in amazing fashion, we will be 8-8 and still number 1 on Jerry's favorite list - Forbes!

    I'll agree with Risen a fair amount of the time, but it's the stuff we disagree on that we tend to go back and forth about. But, yeah, he can crack off a good one every now and then. :)

    You didn't argue it, there's no arguing 5.2 ypc. All you did was show Murray's stats for 2011.
    Sometimes stats don't show you everything. That's why I said put em down for a sec.
    Tony visibly has more time to throw in the pocket compared to years past. A lot more time. Find a stat for that. His escapablitity may not be as good as it used to be.
    As you said, the run game was better in 2013. He developed leary and got good play from mack. There were big holes to run through. One rookie center may have something to do with it. But I think a lot of it is the zone blocking scheme. Think shannahan's broncos, how many no name RBs put up 1,000 yard seasons with his zone blocking scheme? This is what I'm hoping for and I think we've seen positive signs thus far.

    Did Jerry give him a 7 yr 120 million contract?
