He's actually no longer a hot property in Dallas either. Just in Jerry's dreams of the Jimmy Days.
The same thing is true of most coaches if they get removed from a HC gig. Garret's obviously not an Andy Reid who's going to step right into another top spot automatically. This isn't saying anything, it's just couched as a slight of our coach to try to get some reaction.
Garrett the coach suffers from Jerry's hype machines and over-inflated expectations from the roster that he has put together. That is the only reason he is seen as a bit of a disappointment. Most of the names on the roster are old and in decline while most of the youngsters are still learning the pro game and/or injured. He has had to get by with a patchwork roster since he has started. I actually think this is the first year where I would say this is mostly Garrett's roster. I say mostly because the decision to franchise Spencer has left no room to fill out the weak spots on the roster.
It'll be interesting to see if we release Free on June 1st. There should then finally be some room to look into adding depth to the roster and maybe signing a replacement along the OL.
No head coach is a "hot commodity" if they are an active head coach of a team. Sure, there are coaches teams would want like Belichick, Harbaugh1, Harbaugh2, etc. but even they are not "hot commodities" because they are not available so no team is wasting any time thinking or talking about them.
Coordinators can be or not be hot commodities, but not active head coaches unless their contract is up this year or rumors are everywhere they will be fired soon.
His comments are based on pure speculation and opinion and are geared toward riling the homers and bringing out the haters.
Baltimore has to be happy that they dodged that bullet.
After looking back over the last few years I think it's going to take 4-5 years to really evaluate the guy if then. No coach can win without some talent. If you have average talent then most likely no one is going to get much more than 1 -2 games over 8-8.
This draft and FA acquisition is critical for the club and hence Garrett. The talent on the team is getting better overall with some exciting players geared up to play today's game.
And before I get flamed I'm not convinced Red is the guy yet. I just don't have a fair enough evaluation to judge him completely.
You nailed it!
I don't even know if he was and if he was a "hot property"
The guy, prior to Dallas, was a mediocre coordinator and had zero head coaching experience at any level.
Dallas has paid for this inexperience time and time again. I believe a top coach would have had this team in the playoffs the last two seasons.
Atlanta as well.
The bozo could have written this 2 years ago.
It speaks volumes that the current Cowboy head coach Jason Garrett (and offensive coordinator - same guy doing both roles) would have a hard time getting a coordinator position right now if fired.
If you are referring to Jason Garrett (who this thread is about) he was not a "coordinator" (mediocre or otherwise) prior to being hired as OC by Jerry. The sum total of Garrett's coaching experience prior to the cowboys was two years as QB coach for Miami in 2005 and 2006. Let me repeat - that is two years as any kind of coach at any level (Pop Warner, Jr. High School, High School, College or Pro).
To be honest, I wonder if anyone else in NFL history has ever been a coordinator or HC with so little coaching history at any level on their resume?
If that were true, it would, indeed, speak volumes. But it's not true.
correct, I meant he was a mediocre coordinator here
I'm not a huge Garrett fan either but this team was hit with major injuries last year so let's see how he does in 2013.
I think it is.
I don't doubt for a second that you do.
It's moot, because he's the HC in DAL, and well-regarded by the organization. If he were on the street, I believe he'd be picked up by a quality organization to run the offense in a matter of days. Maybe some of you guys will get your wish, and we'll get to see next year. I suspect we won't, though.
Um, just remember, if Garrett got the job in Baltimore he would have got the GM in Baltimore and the players....hard to say that Baltimore didn't have a lot more talent overall than Dallas did a year ago.
Same with Atlanta. You compare the rosters position by position, they are much better than Dallas.
Easier for coaches to be geniuses with better players and a healthier roster.
