    Even Sean Payton is hired here and the OL is not fixed as soon as he calls his bread and butter 4 Verticals play, Romo is going to be taking one in the chin.

    OL needs to be fixed first instead of trying to hire a new coach with same group.

    Not every coach is deluded enough to think that he shouldnt change gameplans and schemes based on who his personnel is.

    Because that 4 verticals play was the staple of his time in Dallas.

    I think there is little doubt that no matter who is here (insert your favorite here), the team isn;t going anywhere without vast improvement from the offensive line.

    I don't think our Oline will be that difficult to improve.

    Im actually willing to give the Costa project another year because he looked pretty dang good. We should get to see some Kowalski pretty soon as well.


    Doug Free has to be cut. If he is a starter next season than the offseason was a failure.

    So basically a new RG and RT and I think we're good to go on the OL.

    Not me.

    I want the center/guard.

    No offense to Costa who I agree did look pretty good, but "you can't help the club in the tub" and I don't want to be in the same terrible position next season.

    Honestly, between the draft and free agency, I'd like to see at least three to four new candidates brought in.

    See im fine if they decide to go or not to go with Costa next year.

    Free and the RG need to be replaced. Bernadeau can stay as a backup.

    I actually like what Nate Livings can do and I hope next year that we make him our worst OL instead of arguably our best.

    You know, I was just thinking the same thing too. I have a feeling that that will factor into the decision on some level.

    He mentions 9 other teams, we're not those 9 other teams, we're supposed to be the standard. I think that level of expectation has been lost within the organization, and even the fan base to a point.

    Who is responsible for having no depth along OL/DL? JG couldn't identify decent OL in 2 1/2 years that could be developed and step in right now?

    What is the 1 excuse that everybody agrees will ruin any team season? QB injury.

    we are lucky enought to dodge this one last 2 years but what if Romo gets injured next season? Will we give JG another year to prove and use it as an excuse next year?

    Changing coaches won't change a thing.

    Not really. He is saying he thinks the roster that rolled out of training camp was up for better than .500 football. It was just wishful thinking then and continues to be now and will be next year with Jerry too.

    How do you adjust for a bad offensive line? Punt every down?

    The problem most fans have with the defense that "the team was a mess when Garrett took over" is that he was the freaking co-piolit for that mess.

    Don't have one in the first place. Jason was supposed to approve every signing (I believe), so he is culpable for the O line mess as well. If indeed he had no say, then get a coach that will be powerful enough to influence personnel decisions. No doubt that the mess in the trenches trumps everything else though.

    If you can do that you`d likely be employed by an NFL team.

    So lets start counting the excuses for Red Ball being a sub 500 coach.


    1. Its the injuries, the team would be balling without them.

    2. Jerry makes him call the plays, he really doesnt want to.

    3. Jerry made all the personnel decisions, especially the o-line.

    4. Garrett had no say in draft picks or free agency, he just observed.

    5. (MY FAVORITE) Tom Landry sucked too starting out as head coach.
