    I detect a distinct lack of rueing over Jeff Fisher after Sunday, given how much roar there was to bring him to Dallas a few years ago. Which I guess isn't a surprise after Callahan took him behind the coaching woodshed and dominated his defense in every facet of the game on Sunday.

    I guess Fisher just needs more talent, because no one could expect him to put up a formidable Front 7 with just three defensive linemen drafted with Top 15 picks, an expensive free agent 3 tech,a first round draft pick outside linebacker, a middle linebacker taken with the 35th pick.

    Only when you have world class talents like George Selvie and Nick Hayden can you expect to put a good defense on the field, which is why old man Kiffin and his antiquated defensive schemes are being masked.

    You left out a free agent DB who several wanted Dallas to bring in.

    I was surprised that we seemed to break the will of the rams like we did. I expected them to put up a fight. However, I am going to credit our team more than discredit the rams.
    No rueing over fisher tho, Garrett is our coach and I'll support him till he is not.

    Agreed. They are young and they are talented. If anyone can build them into a contender it is Fishy-Fishy.

    It is simple to explain. The Rams just didn't come to play. They are a much better team than Sunday's game indicated and Dallas is not as good as the game made them seem. Dallas had several of these type games themselves over the last few years. One of the worst was in Philly a couple if years ago when a bad Eagles team beat the Cowboys like a rented mule. Dallas didn't want to be there. It happens. When it comes to Fisher, he is a good coach. After the KC game, many fans would have been glad to have Fisher. Funny how one win changes things.

    We may never know how close he was to coming here but I'd sure like to know. I always thought he was a good but not great coach. One thing for sure, Sunday was a very unpleasant day for him.

    I think Fisher is a decent coach but not as high on him as others the guy has a .538 winning percentage. Heck Wade had a .581 winning percentage and people wanted him gone. Funny part as a HC it took Fisher 6 years before he got his team to post season before that he went 1-5, 7-9, 8-8, 8-8, 8-8 then they got over the hump. Maybe it shows that a HC needs time to get his team to the top

    Fisher is an incredibly overrated coach and anyone who would want him really only know his name, not his results.

    Why Garrett is in year 3 as Full time HC it took fisher 6 years before he got over 500. Why should Garrett not get some time to turn things around. All these other coaches get that why shouldn't Garrett?

    I'm glad that one game continues to be a referendum for the rest of the season around here.

    If Dallas ends up 2-3 over the next couple of games , ask yourself that question again. Jerry has missed out on several good coaches while giving Garrett his on the job training.

    all coaches start somewhere. What Fisher should have been given 6 years to win and now you guys look at him as a great HC. If Dallas ends up 2-0 or 3-1 over the next few games then what? I have said no matter who the HC is we hire they need time I give Garrett no more nor no less than any HC who would have been hired. As for passing up great coaches? the only ones out there are guys who have already been fired or guys who have never been HC.

    I'm a big fan of Fisher's, and I think he's actually doing good things with that Rams team, overall, but I didn't want him in DAL over Jason Garrett. I did think the Rams had an awful gameplan on Sunday, and was surprised they didn't make more or better half-time adjustments after we were up by three scores.

    right now, fisher is far more qualified than garrett as a HC, that does not mean in the long run garrett will not turn out to be the better coach (i hope he does)
    garrett is getting his chance, lets see what he does with it, so far the results have been less than stellar
