    100% agree with you. He is the guy the team has credited with finding the guys we added this year.

    If that was actually true, then no other organization would be interested in hiring him.

    Looks like you tired of your own myth.

    I don't care about cronyism if it isn't creating a problem... If we're winning super bowls, hire your 3rd cousin's pediatrist for all I care.

    Why some people cry foul about Jerry being a "snake-oil salesman" and proceed to believe every word that he says is beyond me. I mean we are talking about the same guy that will say "just because I said it, doesn't make it so..." with a smirk on his face. Jerry will never shy away from the media and that's OK but don't sit there and believe every word that comes out his mouth - it's really that simple, at least for me anyways.

    The facts are that all 3 phases of this football team had issues all year long at different parts of the year. Obviously changes have been made on the defense and offense will be shored up in the next few days. Even Joe D is being given permission to interview elsewhere as well. (Last season he was denied an interview for asst HC position with the Raiders) Maybe they aren't happening fast enough for some or they believe the wrong changes are being made but no team in the NFL makes any sort of changes without a plan in place.

    The 2013 staff will be complete before the Senior Bowl.

    they tell you jerry isn't to be trusted and lies every step of the way.

    then they follow.

    every step of the way.

    somewhere along the way it got to be unfair to say "stop".

    Cronyism is partiality to long-standing friends, especially by appointing them to positions of authority, regardless of their qualifications. Hence, cronyism is contrary in practice and principle to meritocracy.

    Cronyism exists when the appointer and the beneficiary are in social contact; often, the appointer is inadequate to hold his or her own job or position of authority, and for this reason the appointer appoints individuals who will not try to weaken him or her, or express views contrary to those of the appointer. Politically, "cronyism" is derogatorily used.[1]

    It would appear that you don't know what it means....

    It's obvious to anyone that Jerry is forcing Jason out, but he's doing it respectfully. In that, he is allowing John to seek other employment so that it won't look like the team "fired" him.

    There were reports of John calling around the NFL for openings the other day. Now he's applying to be a head coach of some refrgerator school in Delaware. I'm sure lots of people jump at the chance to take a pay cut in this economy.

    One thing is guaranteed, John won't be on the coaching staff this coming year.

    Jason Garrett - 2 years as QB coach before becoming an offensive coordinator... one year as a floundering offensive coordinator before being offered the HC jobs in Baltimore and Atlanta.

    It's kind of silly to call his hiring in Dallas cronyism when Garrett obviously has appeal league-wide.

    It's fine to say you prefer someone else. But lets not pretend that no one else in the league would hire Garrett as HC. That was already proven wrong. And I would also venture to guess (obviously can't be proven) that Garrett, like Ken Whisenhunt would be interviewing for HC openings around the league right now if he were let go in Dallas.

    I'm sure that neither have any regrets. But of course that's not the point.

    I think it is a point. What has garrett accomplished?


    As far as John taking a FCS HC job, its a HC job that would be a good place to learn about being one.

    One that Jason Garrett could have used.

    Love how the Garrett fans are spinning this..

    BTW, he's not just a tight ends coach, but was the 'passing game' coordinator, meaning he was essentially moving up the chain in this organization pretty rapidly because of his connections to 'learn'. Further, the key term is he's APPLYING for the job, meaning there's nothing to indicate this Division II school that to themselves, "Man, we need to go get this guy Garrett... He's helping Tony Romo light this league on fire, so let's consider him for the job."

    We got plenty of yards through the air. Romo just liked throwing the ball to LBers.

    He was also PASSING GAME COORDINATOR for the team that all the Garrett supporters claimed that had WRs running routes wrong all day and not being able to adjust their routes on blitzes...
