    1a) Past Success

    Jerry said it with glee in his voice. He's not gonna stop being GM b/c he's won 3 championships doing what he does. Sure, nearly 20 years ago, but still.

    Just a comparison... I live in the Philly area. They are crucifying Reid. You could replace the names with Reid, etc. and it you wouldn't even be able to distinguish the two teams.

    BTW - both are 3-5.

    It is very simple. The 1 thing that Bellicheck and Coughlin have in common is that they will bench a player at the expense of wins. They are not afraid to pull that trigger at all and their players know it. Garrett may be stern with some, but his starters are untouchable. Until that changes, I don't see anything else changing on this team. Simply taking punt return duty from Bryant, I'm afraid, will not be enough. He, Ogletree, and any other player for the slightest mistake needs to ride the pine. I also like the idea that Coach Smith has incorporated with the Falcons. The individual responsible for the most penalty yards sits at the front. Each week they reorganize the seating chart to accomodate placing an emphasis on focus. The Cowboys need that concept instilled desperately.

    Is that Rudy staring over Jerry's shoulder? Maybe Jerry is trying to convince Jason to put Rudy in.

    there are really 3 problems with this team

    1. Front office who cant build a team becasue they have no vision and are completely reactionary. unfortunately, this problem cannot be solved because of **********, looking in the mirror, and being in a fox hole issues with a completely delusional and irrational person. Garrett is also culpable here because we were assured that only players he wanted would be on the team, though to a lesser degree. if he had a back bone, he would do something about it but jelly fish done have back bones.

    2. Coaching to enforce discipline and accountability. this falls squarely on garrett and is where i am most disappopointed with him.

    3. Play calling. Having a piss poor offense despite having a franchise QB. Falls on garrett.

    #2 and 3 are fixable by getting a real HC in here so that we can at least become competitive.

    Just because they were "rumored" to like garrett isn't a reason to keep him after an obvious display of inept coaching. Yes Jerry is a a problem at times, but last time I checked we had a 13-3 year under jerry's watch, and an 11-5 year in which we won a playoff game.

    Maybe Lewis will talk some trash about Garrett, who turned down an offer to become Baltimore’s head coach in 2008 ...


    http://articles.baltimoresun.com/20...jason-garrett-john-harbaugh-garrett-s-cowboys

    After two visits to Baltimore and an offer to succeed Brian Billick as the coach of the Ravens following the 2007 season, Garrett opted to stay in Dallas ...

    said Garrett, who also turned down the Atlanta Falcons' coaching job following the 2007 season.


    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap10...garrett-doesnt-regret-turning-down-ravens-job

    Jason Garrett doesn't regret turning down Ravens job


    http://sports.espn.go.com/dallas/nfl/columns/story?columnist=werder_ed&id=5792186

    Garrett turned down head-coaching offers from the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens following the 2007 season


    http://idmn.dallasnews.com/sportsdaydfw/20121013-garrett-faces-team-he-once-rejected.

    Much was made of the Ravens offering Garrett their coaching job ...

    ... or later the Atlanta Falcons, whom he similarly rejected ...

    But now that they have seen his body of work do you think they would take him over their current coaches?

    Good post, but you really could've combined all three of those into one: Jason Garrett. How anybody can defend a coach that fails so miserable in all three of those areas is beyond me.
