    I want to know from you guys if Scott Linehan gets a HC job from a team. Who do you think could be the new OC for the Cowboys?

    He's not going anywhere. He's 53,has already tried the HC route, has the leagues best talent laden offence to work with ,and you know that he is making 7 figures and Jones will pay him whatever to keep him. He would be an absolute fool to walk away from this situation.

    Faulty logic. If you get the chance to be a HC in the NFL, you take it. You take it especially if you have failed already to prove to yourself, you can do it. You want to build your own program. You want to be the best. You worked your whole life to get that opportunity, you don't turn it down. He would be a fool not to take the opportunity. I hope he stays but no way would I think he would if he is offered a HC job.

    I'm curious, how old are you, younger or older than 45?

    Thank you for your reply. Bad timing. I have to go to work but if the lord is willin' and the creek don't rise, I'll be back tomorrow to explain why I asked.

    I doubt it, when it didn't happen in 2014, when we hired Linehan, I figured it wasn't meant to be.

    Not a Turner fan with this group of players. Linehan has put his fingerprint on this offense as much as its Garret's system it has dash of Linehans wide open offense on it. I think we need a proven innovator not a retread that seems to lose jobs faster and faster as he ages.

    If the logic is faulty, then how do you explain why Jimmy Johnson, John Gruden, and Phil Cowher never returned to coaching, although Johnson coached the Miami Dolphins for a few seasons, after leaving the Cowboys, but that was years ago. All of them had other chances to be a HC and they all passed on the opportunity.
    The reason why I asked your age was to see if there was a gap between yours and mine. I am 61 and probably see things a little differently then you do at 46. It doesn't mean either of us is wrong. I guess that we will find out if the opportunity opens up.

    Well i can't speak of what motivated them to coach. But I can see that all of them had SB rings already. They had achieved their goal. So after that was accomplished,maybe the grind of a HC life was not what they wanted any longer. But you are comparing apples to oranges. Those guys were successful HC. Scott was not. I would bet just about anything he is wanting to get another chance to prove that he can be. That's what he has worked his whole life for.

    If that is what he wants, then more power to him. If I was 53 and already had tried the HC job, I would rather go home to my wife and kids, enjoy some sort of normalcy in my life, and pocket a lot of Jerry Jones' money, but that is just me. We'll see what he does when this season is over.

    Promote Wilson and offer Romo a role of player coach so he can stay in Dallas and still feel useful.

    I don't see anyway Romo would accept any coaching job with this team at this point. Maybe down the road. But right now, he wants to play. He wants to prove that he can still play at a high level. He won't stay in Dallas to be a back up or player coach or anything else now. Nor should he.

    Romo is gone in 2017. Good luck to him.

    The last 3 weeks I have not been impressed at all with the playcalling.

    Daks ability to extend and make plays outside of the scheme have been huge.
