I hope you're wrong but I bet you're right. That is his way.
Jerry's bottom line will be hit before all of that has a chance to play out. As soon as that happens, Garrett will get fired. You can't keep selling this garbage and the team isn't improving. Once the guys like Romo and Ware really decline this team is not even going to tease us like they do now. They'll be completely hopeless.
I don't see many viable candidates that can win with this group. Select few, sure..but they are longshots
Very true. I think Jerry really sees himself as the HC most of the time nowadays and that the others guys are just to manage the offense/defense/ST. I bet he sits in on the game planning meetings to give his approval prior to the walk throughs.
Since you guys can see the future here's something for prognostication
BTW, if Jerry fired Jason now he would guarantee wasting time for Romo, Witten and Ware. New coach=new system + new coordinators
Jim Harbaugh sure wasted a ton of time in San Francisco.
Yes, Garrett was, on top of everything else, a sentimental hire. The Garrett family has given years of service to the Cowboys and JG was the hero of the 1994 Thanksgiving shoot out. Its the same sentimental thinking that brought Campo back from the grave. Jerry just feels comfortable with him in the organization. The Parcells years were probably very tough for Jerry, even if he did grin and bear it for four years.
SF was a team on the way up with successful top picks all over the roster particularly the OL. Dallas was a team on the way down with a few stars, lots of holes, and a dearth of talent. That doesn't fit your agenda though does it. I would still give Harbaugh his due but comparing the two situations as equal opportunity is not valid.
You want to point fingers then point it at the right people.
The jury is still out on Jason and will be for awhile.
I don't mind giving a guy time to develop if he actually starts winning something. Get us in the playoffs, the next year get us deep in the playoffs, then we'll talk Super Bowls.
But I can't justify keeping a guy when the wins just won't come.
Maybe Mike Singletary did.
You're out your damn mind
Is that the best you can do?
IMO, Jerry is hesitant on getting rid of him because Garrett is a "Home Grown" product that Jerry hand picked because of his belief he had what it takes to get the team over the hump. It's not like Jerry hired some outside coach that he has never worked with before. When an owner/GM promotes somebody within the organization to HC and it goes sour it ends up being a bigger dent on an owner/GM ability to evaluate coaching talent moreso than hiring an outside coach with a resume of reasonable success from an outside organization. If it goes sour on the latter, then the owner/GM doesn't get as much of the blame since the the exuse can be "He had a level of success on his former team". That exuse can't be made of Garrett. JJ will have to go down with the sinking ship if he pulls the trigger on JG.
Jerry isn't even thinking about firing him because it's not time to make that evaluation. Now if you see us going backwards then that may change.
This team has a rich history and to see 7-9 or 8-8 over the last couple seasons with another season looking to be a repeat I can't see how he wouldn't make a switch at the end of the season. This isn't the Cleveland Browns that would pop the corks on a 8-8 season.
This is what happens with a team that is 1-7 with too many aging players and a poor secondary and OL.
So we should fire the GM? :laugh2:
I guess Jerry likes losing................going to be doing alot of it with Red Ball as HC.
Hard to put up an effective defense to that argument although I'd say talent acquisition is vastly improved lately. It's been on the rise since Parcells changed the organization.
Houston stuck with Kubiak 6 years before he won and the fans where calling for his head after year three. Sometimes patience pays off and sometimes it fails like Wade. Just hope it works out in our favor as fans
