talk about getting neutered twice
I don't think the two are connected. There is an issue of loyalty and emotion in the coaching decisions IMO that doesn't show on draft day. The draft is kids they barely know, so there is no emotional attachment or loyalty there.
But Garrett? He's Jerry's link to the glory days of his ownership run. Jerry will do absolutely everything and anything to provide cover for Garrett.
This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off.
If Jerry really feels that way, the right thing to do is FIRE the head coach and put somebody else in place.
This is the kind of stuff that happens when he lets emotion and the fact he likes Jason, play a factor in his decisions.
I agree but the owner shouldn't have to. The owner should fire the HC that doesn't want the same thing and bring one in that does. It's sad that the owner is telling the coaches don't listen to the HC and come to me if there is a problem.
Ladies and Gentlemen: I present the real issue with the direction of the Dallas Cowboys. I read this earlier and just cringed. Darren Woodson said years ago that this open-door policyand undermining the coach was the real issue in Dallas. It’s pretty hard to look at dysfunction like this and say he’s not right.
I haven't forgotten at all. People can change with time, especially when they feel they don't have much time left.
If Jerry truly changed............. they would have purged the entire staff.
But he's not changed. He's still in protection mode for Garrett and thinks that maybe he can salvage him by surrounding him with new coaches.
This is likely very true. In most instances, this can be very destructive. Today, it seems it can be a good thing since I believe we all agree our Offense definitely has to get much more creative.
if that is truly the way he feels then fire the head coach and move on
Very likely so over the years. But by Jerry refusing to even consider talking to Garrett about an extension, it might be a sign of him telling Garrett this is his last chance to accomplish something with this team?
yep... after reading on how Jj went all "exit stage right" after the butt whupping in LA, I have to agree. All reports were he was in the upper echelon's of pissed off. Clapping carrot may be a lot of things, but he has for the last 8 seasons shown, he cannot get his team game ready, watching them in the most critical games, it was as if clap had made them all put weights in the shoes for "training" purpose's.
One reason might be that there is no replacement available right now that JJ feels good about. Some are convinced that JJ is after Peyton, others feel it might be a college coach. Either way, keeping Garrett one more season provides time to let those options emerge. It also provides a season to see how Moore does at OC, and Richard does at DC, or whatever, etc.
From all reported jg didn't want to keep Linehan. Even if that's not true, how much say does he have in who his oc is if the owner hand picked his new one and told him to come to him if he had problems?
Once again, I don't want jg to have any control over the offense but I also don't like the fact our owner is cutting off the hc testicles. If the owner doesn't want the HC to have any say then he needs to get a new HC which I think is also a good idea. He did it in 2013 by stripping play calling from him, then again in 2014 by hiring a new OC. At least then he had say in who it was and got to keep his playbook. Now he has no say and is gettting his play book taking away. Again, I love that but it's just not a good look and I question what exactly is jg doing now?
I see a lot folks are of the opinion that Jerry shouldn't have said this. Normally, I'd agree, but look at what happened last season when Jerry lit a fire under Garrett's butt. Maybe he's doing that again.
Except he did the same thing with Garrett in 2014. Garrett originally signed a 4 year contract that took him through the 2014 season. Garrett coached 2014 on the last year of his deal and didn't get a new one until 2015.
So Jerry letting Garrett coach out the season on the last year of his deal isn't unique.
But I do agree that this could be the swan song for Garrett. If they don't do anything in 2019, he's likely gone.
Of course he is right. When you hire puppets like Garrett then Jerry will play this game.
It always been a problem.
If Garrett had actually won something then maybe he could tell Garrett to shut up but Jerry has given him every resource imaginable and Garrett does nothing with it so of course Jerry is going to get involved because the coach has the perception from the fans, media, and some players that he is not good at scheming.
Jerry, Jerry, Jerry...smh.
So this is a public statement. Why? It didn't need to be. JJ could've pulled them both in his office and said this privately.
IMO, Jerry has two reasons for saying this publicly:
1) He's Jerry, the attention whore.
2) He wants the fans to feel some sense of satisfaction that things will be different.
Because JJ has nothing to sell the fan base.
He did the same thing a year ago with Linehan and many bought it so of course he's going to come back and try to sell it again.
