Not much can be said to counter that.
I'm going to be a Jason Garrett fanboy for a minute because I still have fresh in my mind guys like Wade Phillips,Dave Campo, Barry Switzer and Chan Gaily. So I appreciate having a guy like Garrett who has a plan and knows what he wants in his players. just look at the last 4 drafts under him.Plus this years draft has some promising players, than when you add a few of the UDFA's they brought in the last few years I think you should have a little more faith than 4 out of 10 when it comes to Garrett. The truth is he has struggled from time to time on game day especially with clock management but that because of lack of experience. You have to remember the guy was never a head coach at any level before he got here so he has been learning on the fly.he made a few mistakes but he's a bright guy and can almost garentee he won't make them this year because now he has the experience needed to be a great game day head coach. No one can deny this team plays hard for him, from the day he took over and went 5-3 down the stretch after Phillips got fired, with Kitna as his QB. Games last year like the Redskins (Thanksgiving) and the Giants (at home) when they got out to really big leads against us and they just kept playing hard and fighting back. He has also proven to be a good talent evaluater and Player development has been better under him than in recent years. He is getting the most out of his players which is a trait that all the great coaches have. So beside a couple bonehead decisions he made on game day which should be chalked up to inexperience (which now he has) I don't see how you can honestly say you give him a 4 out of 10. The guys is a good coach and I really believe this team can win a Super Bowl in the next 3 years. I got 8 out of 10 faith in Garett.
LOL. Once again, he hasn't had four drafts. He wasn't the coach in 2010 at draft time.
I guess 5-6 record, 2-6 in one's own division is a sign of a good team. But then again, your right..
I guess the fact that he applied for other jobs, proves he wanted to leave because he wanted to be out of the shadow of his brother and father, when he, and his other two brothers have been followng daddy where-ever he ends up going throughout their lives. I guess he wanted to go to Columbia with his other two brothers to play under his father to not be in his shadow, and then follow his other two brothers to Princeton to not be in Jason's shadow as well, when his father ended up blowing chunks as a head coach in Columbia.
Man, funny how these guys don't want to be in each other's shadows, yet they always end up with each other. Just like Judd doesn't want to be in their shadow, while working in Dallas as well.
Don't forget... He drafted Sean Lee, the captain of the defense, because he's the RKG. And remember, it was Wade who blew 3 of the first picks of 2009 to get JG WR Roy Williams, cause the defense was struggling.. Oh yeah, and Wade wanted Dave Campo, because of his ties to the Cowboys organization when he was playing here, like JG with Kiffin... as well as Hudson Houck and Felix Jones... Oh wait....
I'm not sure why you're so confident in this draft class. It looks like we got two very good players - Frederick and Wilcox. All of the other draft picks are still question marks. Even if Williams turns out to be a decent #3 receiver, this draft was just average. Not bad, not awesome. Just OK.
Judd and John are two different people. John and Jason are two different people. Not sure why it is so hard to believe a guy could want to coach in college, and feels getting away to another location gives him a better shot at it. Rob and Rex Ryan are twins yet don't work together any more, even though one is a Head Coach and could create his own staff. they were together on Daddy's staff in Phoenix. Wes Phillips decided to stay in Dallas after his Dad was fired. Monte Kiffin isn't on his son's staff any more. Clearly it's not all that uncommon for family member who did work together to move on later. John moved on. It isn't a big deal.
And logically, 3 different people can still have the same behavior in certain matters, like following their father around wherever he goes throughout their career. The fact that one claims that John left because he wanted to get out of the family shadow, while he's been following his father around and now brother his whole career, is utterly laughable to claim. Tying that in with an open position as HC of Delaware cause he is from NJ is even more laughable. He ended up in Tampa Bay as a WR coach. I'm sure there were open secondary coaching positions with some scrub Division 1 college teams close to that area to he could have applied to if he wanted to be close to home.... Further, we have no idea how many places he sent his resume too or called, besides these two places.
He lost two points for me last night. So 4 out of 10 now.
The inability to get the team up for home games is starting to really worry me.
Also we had another stupid penalty ruin a good drive yesterday in the first quarter.
Finally, I've seen Jason get lots of credit for replenishing the talent on the team and churning the roster...where was it yesterday?
I suppose you feel there was some point to this, but I don't. Just a lot of blather about something which you clearly know nothing about.
