If the truth hurts take pain pills
Garrett will be the HC for the next 10yrs
It kind of makes you wonder why a guy like Marinelli would leave a comfortable situation in DET for a possible one-year shot here iN DAL, doesn't it? It might just be that Garrett's on more solid ground than his detractors want to admit.
no he didnt.....so, that kinda blows the rest of your post....
Not really. You should look it up. I'll send yea a link.
I am tired of more threads like this about Garrett and Gruden
We'll see how it plays out, but losing the playcalling job might enable Garrett to stay here longer. Possibly much longer.
For all his faults, Jerry has always been a glass half full person. I don't think he'd go into a season preparing for failure and an eventual coaching change. I don't like him as a gm, but that's not his style.
Wasn't Marinelli DC in Chicago last year? He was out of a job until Jerry came calling.
Not true, The new Chicago HC (Trestman) offered the DC job to him. Marinelli turned it down. In part to work with Kiffen again, but mainly because he didn't want to work in Chicago anymore after Lovie Smith got canned.
nice article ...but no where in it did he say he wouldnt voluntarily give up play calling duties...
What comfortable situation in Detroit was he leaving? He hasn't been there since 08. Did he have another offer?
Or did you mean Chicago? Plenty of reasons to leave Chicago.
No, I just had it in my head that he was still in DET. Oops.
It's amazing many don't get that. Not only stripping his play calling but firing and or strongly urging him to fire his assistants. It is all par for the course for the worse GM in football.
Look at the longest tenured active head coaches, lets say hired in 2007 and before. Belichick, Tomlin, Coughlin, Payton, Kubiak, McCarthy, Lewis. Between them all they've got 35 playoff berths, 36 division titles, and 8 Super Bowl titles. And the insiders at CZ are trying to convince us all that Garrett who has none of the 3, will be here for a period amounting to 13 years
I somewhat agree, we miss the playoffs another year and he is gone. I happen to think that Jerry's "meddling" may be the best thing that ever happened to Garrett. He has some good qualities as a head coach, however he was in WAY too far over his head pulling double duty running the offense. The double duty hurt him in both positions. With Garrett just focusing on running the team (discipline & motivation), I think we will make the playoffs and have some success next year which may very well set Garrett up for a long tenure as head coach.
Not a big fan of Gruden, even though he would be an immediate improvement over Garrett. Garrett is here next season, after which we will be on the hunt for a new one.
I'm tired of the fact that Garrett is still getting excused for his ineptitude and is still the HC of this franchise..
First he was fired from Detroit. Secondly, it was Chicago and third, he's a disciple of Kiffin. Fourth, he was made Assistant Head Coach and he thinks Garrett may actually fail and he has an oppurtunity to be interim Head Coach and then Head Coach.. Fifth, his boy Lovie Smith was fired.
