    Everyone knows that Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is on a hot seat this season. His name is mentioned in countless articles, including being mentioned by two writers in this one at ESPN. Even though not a single game has been played, and teams have not even started training camp, he is reportedly at more peril than the majority of NFL coaches.

    And that is all subject to change as soon as wins and losses start piling up.

    If the Cowboys get off to a bad, or even mediocre, start this season, then the likelihood of Garrett being fired is good, no doubt. But all he has to do to cool things off is win. If the team is, say, 6-2 at the halfway point, all the talk about a hot seat will die off. It will come up again if the team makes the playoffs, but again, it is all about whether he can get a win or two in the postseason.

    The hotseat argument is really something of a fallacy, because almost every head coach in the NFL is coaching for his job every year. Pile up those wins, and you can expect to come back next season. Have your team slump to the cellar, or just fall apart in general, and it may be time to get the old resume updated.

    Luke warm at worst.

    Jerry Jones is 76yo this month, is all-in credibility-wise on JG succeeding and, at his age, certainly doesn’t wanna reboot with a new HC, system and staff.

    As long as the Cowboys don’t tank completely (think: 1-8 start or 2-14 finish), and there are excuses available that Jerry can rationalize, Jason Garrett won’t be fired.

    Writers have talked about Garrett's hot seat for years.

    The problem is that every time it heats up, he sits a coordinator in it.

    Garrett will go when Jerry can not find any other scapegoat for him and his son.

    A new head coach will be brought in at that time. You will rejoice. Then you will grow to hate that guy too and plead for another.

    Round and round we go. We're waxing rust.

    I am not going to rejoice because I know we will hire another stooge.

    If I am betting money, I think Romo and Witten are in contention to be the next head coach of this football team.

    There’s no accountability with our dysfunctionally ran franchise.

    Just provide enough so Jerry can sell hope. Lol

    Jerry can sell the heck out of .500 ball.

    Hard to believe Garrett was the NFL Head Coach of the Year just a couple of years ago.

    Only the Jones boys "know" if that's true. The rest are just speculative media and hopeful fans.

    Yea, it ranks up there with Jerry being EOTY and a HOF induction.

    The media and fans always speculate about the hot seat for Garrett when all along it's been quite comfy.

    Generally, when dealing with puppets, you're using your whole hand.

    The induction for Jerry’s contributions was well deserved . It wasn’t an induction for his GM duties and had nothing to do with his Football Idiocies.
