    Was this before or after the interview where Garrett said he didn't want to give up his OC duties? Serious question.

    I have no doubt that you were serious. I just have my doubts that many will take the time to listen to the interview.

    This was a good interview. He was more real, less robot.

    I think you have to give Garrett another season. Give him a play caller if youre making a change at that level, I like that idea but I dont think changing the HC is the right answer for now.

    For those you of you who dont understand garretts coaching on the field all you have to do is listen to a pc of his and you'll understand.

    I am sure most of fans wont even bother listening to that gem of interview, especially the genious, Garrett is Robot/process/or whatever cliche's they would like to throw at him.

    But, I thought it was pretty clear for me, from the beginning why Garrett chooses to be cliched in his answers. Although I am sure media and fans would be surprised by his answers there though. Not that it will stop them still rediculing his answers ( doesn't seem like he gives two bits about that either, he seems more worried about doing good for cowboys than criticisms about this PCs).

    Talks about why he's robotic at his press interviews. Says his main responsibility is to the team (not the media), and needing to understand his audience. By this, he means understanding that coaches, players, other teams are his audience, and doesn't want to say anything that might lead to a competetive advantage for another team. Says he'd like to answer straight forward and shoot from the hip, wants to be entertaining to the fans, but knows that's not what's best for his team. Has to be very careful about what he says publicly. Also acknowledged that this is often different than how he speaks to players and others behind closed doors.

    Talks about needing to become a more complete offense, and having better people around Romo, but also that Romo needs to be better.

    Understands that criticism comes with the job, but needs to remain focused on the task at hand. Can't be distracted by the noise outside the organization. (Interesting since some feel that he overreacts to the media's criticisms about his game-planning and playcalling).

    Acknowlegdes that they never have things exactly the way they want them, but that nobody does, so they're alyays trying to improve. Talks about all the challenges he has with being HC and playcaller, but says that if there was another way that he thought was better, that he'd be open to doing something differently if the organization thought collectively it would be better for the team (take that however you will).

    Well the question has finally been answered. What has improved since Jason Garrett has been here?

    Jason Garrett interviews have improved. He now uses a few words that weren't included in Firmware version 1.

    After getting a chance to watch this/listen to this I think JG officially just owned a whole lot of posters around here. They won't admit to it though. They'll make up new things.

    How did he own anyone? It was just a good interview. Nobody is shocked that the guy can speak well. We'll be shocked when he coaches well.

    How did he own people? I don't see it. He is a smart guy. Its completely obvious that he tries to be robotic in press conferences to avoid giving out information. But the fact is other coaches have figured out how to be entertaining and likable without giving out confidential information. Its all a part of his personality and the way he is wired - he is a highly intelligent, structured guy that struggles at flexibility, intuition and making decisions on the fly. He can't 'go with the flow'. This is why game situations and adjustments are such a struggle to him.

    Whats up with your Sig Pic? Are you actually done with Romo and JG or is it just a inside joke that I dont get?

    Good interview, but who chooses grape gatorade over fruit punch or cool blue? He's dead to me now. :)

    ^^This^^. I think his Game Management would drastically inrease without the burden of playcalling, not to mention it being the THIRD year of his HC Career( at any level).
    P.S. Love this sig-pic!!!

    First line of the sig explains the rest. I lost a bet. A Cowboys fan bet on the Redskins. I bet on the Cowboys.
