What if Jason's in-game decisions are as poor as they have been? Where do we turn?

    Yeah, we probably won't resolve this one here tonight. I'll give you the AZ game, of those three, though. But not because of the FG. He did waste precious time on that final drive that we ended up needing badly at the end.

    The question is meaningless without a point of comparison. I'll buy the premise that Garrett has cost the Cowboys wins in some games...but so has every coach in the history of the league. Before you can answer the question, you need a comparison between Garrett's game costing decisions and the game costing decisions of other coaches around the league.

    Who gives a rat's furry ***? Interim coaches are a dozen for 10 cents.

    The New England game is the perfect example of our personnel costing us the game and there was nothing that could be done about it. An O-line that when attacked, got blown into the backfield. Followed by a defense that couldn't hold a lead.

    It might be exaggerated, but to think that some of his decisions havent been costly, to say the least, is a mistake.

    this is the bottom line
    he stays "calm" in the game but he has made poor decisions in those times

    there is

    1. calm that allows one to keep one's emotions in check under stress so one can still make decisions that turn out to be correct (this is what you want)

    2. calm that is 'deer in the headlights' where someone gives the outward impression of being calm but makes poor decisions (this is what you dont want) and in a sense 'freeze up'

    both people are CALM under pressure but the results are very different

    this is why i dont buy into the fact that jason remains calm in these situations, so it is a good thing, because he has a history of making poor decisions in those circumstances

    maybe htis is just becasue he is inexperienced and should not have been in those situations for a few more years (thank you jerry) or maybe that is just who he is

    time will tell

    I think Jason gets this season to prove himself if the team wins then he will be back if not he will likely be gone.

    I bet you can take any coach that ever coached in the NFL and there will be fans talking about games he cost them.

    Did you see the horrific in-game decisions by Jim Harbaugh in the Super Bowl? Just terrible clock management.

    Folks, this same nonsense is said in 32 NFL cities every year. Everyone second guesses their head coach all the time. Even Landry got this ALL the time.

    Garrett is an Ivy Leaguer who's been around the NFL his whole life. He'll be fine.

    Thought Ray was more of a stabby kind of guy vs a shooty kind of guy. :)

    Belichick is just playing the odds when he does that. He's one of very few HCs who have the gravitas to go against public opinion and take risks like that without fear of the lashback.
    HCs make poor decisions all the time, but in every game where a specific HC decision likely affects the outcome, you're still going to have a dozen plays you can point to where player execution was more important.

    The rest of the NFL copies whatever Bellicheck does. He goes to a pass heavy offense, the rest of the league doe it, he uses 2 TE sets using 2 recieving TE's the rest of the league does it.... Bill goes for it on 4th down more than anyone else, ill bet you see people follow that too once it proves to be a good idea. The guy is an innovader
