    See, this is what I hate as much as anything...rampant speculation. Nothing definitive or concrete. But you put it out there, and people take it and run with it. I like Mort, but sometimes he talks out of his *** as much as anybody.

    This is beyond bizarre now. I've questioned Garrett as a coach but I'd hate to see it go down like this.

    If Garrett is actually leaving, why don't we just hire Lovie?

    Whoops..nevermind, i see it's John not Jason

    The rumor was if Jerry made Jason fire his brother, he was looking for Jason to resign. Saving face by saying he resigned rather than was fired.

    .....last I checked Red is making 3 mil a yr. right? NO where in the WORLD will he be able to go and make that much money. Unless he opens up a huge meth lab, and he doesn't seem like the type. Seriously, one thing his Princeton education taught him: don't EVER quit a job like this and forfeit all that money to "save face". He can set up his kids and grand kids for LIFE with the money he's making right now.

    So yeah, there's specualtion JJ is doing that to him but my educated guess is it won't work. He'll have to fire him if he wants him outta here. He gets one more year to right the ship IMO

    I just hope we're not keeping Garrett for financial reasons.

    Yep. Just fire Garrett and name himself the head coach already. He has and still is destroying this once proud franchise.

    Mort is sometimes wrong as is Broaddus

    however for BOTH of them to be wrong about the same subject is a long shot.

    Our TE's were OK this year outside of Witten; not great but pretty good overall. The only reason that Jerruh would be after John's head must be something else then the TE performance

    I speculated in another post, maybe JJ wants to bring in a running game co-ordinator? Someone who is in charge of the RBs, OL, and TEs?

    Maybe Sparano?

    I think it's JJ just playing the power game. Just wants to remind everyone who's in charge.

    Perhaps Jerry is trying to break up the country club. I approve.

    He already has a running coordinator in Callahan. Im guessing he wants more of a passing coordinator and playcaller. John has probably been Garrett's main sounding board and game plan developer for the passing game up to this point. Jerry is probably trying to clear the way for a Pete Carmichael Jr or Hue Jackson type.

    That would mean jerry getting rid of jerry and that's not happening.

    Is P Carmichael under contract though? I think what you say probably makes more sense.

    His contract is about to expire, and he might be looking for another gig since the Saints probably want Payton to call his own plays and run his own offense since they gave him a billion dollars. He's also been interviewing for a few HC jobs. Broaddus has dropped his name several times, and Broaddus is the first one I heard drop Monte Kiffin's name after Ryan was axed.

    If anyone watched Martellus though he was making the same mistakes and drops he was making here. They just didn't have a Jason Witten to go to in NY and had to deal with his screw up's. Martellus looked like the same guy he was here to me. He just had more opportunity. If Jerry and co. can't see that then well we have some big problems here.
