give it some thought. i'm trying to.
what do you do?
Hire a good/great GM. Someone with a track record. Then I'd get out of the way and let him build my team. Every Sunday I'd watch my 'Boys while sipping Mountain Dew (I don't drink) from my lavish suite.
so far, singular moves that got us where we are now.
Ask Ozzie Newsome if he'd like to come to Dallas.
If he says no, I turn to Ted Thompson.
I give them carte Blanche, and watch from my perch in the sky.
1. Hire Holmgren as my GM
2. Tell him to hire his HC
3. Stay out of the way
4. Buy a bigger boat
5. Head to Greece and watch my money grow
I guess I'd have issues finding a quickfix solution- at the current time- midseason. It's a good team, with real talent. I'd leave the defense alone (save for addressing the safety position with some real money/scouting), and I think I'd enforce a simpler, more high-octane offensive strategy.
Fire the entire coaching staff. Release every single player minus Dez Bryant and Dan Bailey. Bulldoze the new stadium. Oh and fix the green pants.
and then what?
Probably the same thing Jerry does. Make money and be involved with the team I love
I would like to add 'fix the green pants' to my post as well.
I'd fix the whole damn uni, once and for all.
Spend the next few weeks at the best gentleman’s clubs in Dallas? Pretty sure i could get some VIP access as the Cowboys owner.
i asked for thought.
Garrett fired. Callahan fired. Try to hire a college coach with intelligence and passion (maybe Urban Meyer?) to be HC. Hire a real GM.
Draw clear lines of responsibility between HC and GM and hold them accountable. Empower them to control their staffs and their players to achieve objectives. Step away, place my trust in them, and let them do what I hired them to do. At the end of the year judge against clearly drawn responsibilities. If either didn't meet the expectations fire them and hire another. Repeat.
You know, what most successful owners do.
i'd try to shop romo, ware, and witten to every team in the league.
Find a QB and strengthen both lines
Change the uniform to silver pants.
Sign Tebow to the roster as the 3rd string QB.
Cut all prices - tickets, merchandise, etc. - in half.
Sad as it is, you probably wouldn't get much for them.
Hire Bill Polian as my gm. Get rid of Red and most likely hire Lovie as my HC.Put a muzzle on Stephan.
you own the cowboys, stephan isn't an issue.
what i think i'll see in this post are a lot of people doing the very same short term crap that got us here, but hey, i'll hire someone else and we're done.
a lot more thought will be required.
