    I bet you if he runs the ball and we are more effective, everyone will say, "See, garrett couldn't do it and we should have had an OC sooner, and Jerry did a great job brining in Linehan"

    if he ends up passing more and sticking tot he passing game, the same group will say, this was the guy that garrett wanted and he wanted him to run his pass happy offense, and he put another nail in his coffin.

    this is what you call a lose-lose situation.

    and I am sure somebody will call me a Pro-Garrett fan, which I am not. just stating how its going to work out.

    People will always have something to say, just win ball games if you do that there will be enough credit to go around for all.

    I don't care who gets the credit or the blame. Just run the damn ball.

    I'm not sure I see those two claims coming from the same people.

    It's a Garrett move no matter how it unfolds.. Doesn't change the fact that red is awful at his job

    People are going to complain no matter what happens. I am a Garrett fan and I don't care if people give him the credit or give him the blame, I just want to win.

    I'd bet this is exactly what the OP was getting at when he first posted. Pretty much the definition of a lose-lose offensive change among the Cowboy faithful.

    True. For me it is simple team loses HC takes the responsiblity, team wins HC gets credit along with his staff. Same for front office, blame them for poor seasons and should they win then give them credit.

    I pray for the day Jerry isn't the owner, Garrett is long forgotten, and we are winning again.

    If Linehan's influence results in wins for JG, I think he would take that (at this point for job security). It would result in another contract but I would gladly swallow my pride in exchange for a meaningful playoff appearance. Skeptics of JG can wish for the success of the team and still be critical of his "contribution."

    Can you admit that Garrett is the HC so he is responsible for the failures of the last 3 years because he sure does not do it

    If you can hold him responsible for failings of his team as a HC no one will have a problem with you giving him credit if the team does well

    The fact that Garrett is a bad OC and HC is already evident by team performance and will only come as a surprise to Garrett groupies

    This is just another Garrett homer OP looking for credit for Garrett before there is any evidence such credit is due

    There are SO many "the sky is falling" posters on this site that is truly astounds me....

    ...I will give Garrett the blame if we lose and credit him when we win...if his decisions make the team better, he gets credit, if his decisions prove to move in the wrong direction, he gets blame

    I choose to think that he is moving the team forward right now, not jones, not others, but Garrett...and, I am not a garrett apologist or even a fan of his coaching...I just see that he is instilling a mindset but people choose to look at the immediate and not the long-term...for all of the team's shortcomings in recent history, I still feel the "plan" in the last few years has been a progressive one...with the right moves on defense (draft and otherwise), we go to the playoffs this year

    The team has to win football games. Doesn't matter how or who gets the credit.

    Regardless of the OC Garrett is still the head coach and will still have plenty of input on what happens on offense anyway. Anyone who won't give him credit if we succeed next year isn't worth listening to.

    I don't really care whether we run more or are pass-happy as long as some other system than Garrett's is being used. We've tried doing it Garrett's way on offense and have remained a .500 team under him. I'm just happy someone finally made the decision for him to relinquish control of the offense since he has never proven that he can run his own successfully.

    Now, I believe we'll really see what kind of head coach Garrett can be.

    If so, he is truly a miracle. One of the first lame duck head coaches that can claim he is moving the team forward.
