    I don't agree with the bolded porition. I think it's always a learning experience--especially with first time head coaches. If you want someone "young and hungry", there will be growing pains.

    Having said that, it's year three. It's time to show something. If the Cowboys were to drop the next game to the Rams, I wouldn't be opposed to cutting bait with Garrett right then and there and seeing what it would take to get MNF to release Gruden from his contract. Maybe I'm overreacting. I probably am. But I've seen this movie before, if you know what I mean.

    Good old CZ
    despite a pathetic offensive performance the usual suspects are out in full force in Garrett's defense

    Dont worry, no amount of smoke and mirrors can save Garrett if we dont make the playoffs.

    No more excues at this point.

    You mean the Internet attracts people with wide and divergent opinions? Color me shocked.

    Garrett was unqualified to be an offensive coordinator, he didn't deserved that position to begin with, nor did he master it once he was there. You don't then further elevate an unqualified subordinate to a superior position and expect him to learn on the job.

    That chiefs drive said a lot. They wanted to pound it and finish the game, we played like we had one foot on the plane

    It's tough to argue against the points you're making. I still say there's room for "on the job training" in the NFL, but I think Garrett has used up all his excess space.

    I dunno - maybe it's just me - but if I'm a GM of an NFL football team, and I need a headcoach, I'm going to choose someone with at least SOME head coaching experience. This team especially doesn't have the time to see if we

    Precisely.

    I agree, and in Garrett's defense, I think that he got a series of (mostly political) battlefield promotions and couldn't maintain pace with the incremental responsibility. Tough to learn at that rate. He might have been better served falling into Wilson's role for a few years and then making the step to OC. He's rich now and probably more risk adverse than hungry, IMO.

    On the job training is fine in JAX, SD, Buff, etc, etc but not in big D. I thought that job was too big for him then and I still do. I still maintain that Garrett would make a better GM than a head coach. I wouldn't even mind him being our GM. Suffice it to say, he is history if this team under-performs again no matter what JJ tells us.

    Waters will probably be ready soon.

    Spencer's run containment was abysmal.

    Spencer was also up to his inside move allowing the QB to slip outside

    beacuse he's getting the ball on a play where his route calls him to stop, he should be running down the seam and stretching the D and forcing a lber to struggle in trailing him.

    BINGO!! He is not good at throwing the crossing route where the receiver needs to keep momentum.
    He has never been good at this.

    Some people think Spencer played great. I'm just wondering what game they were watching.
