    Jason is still the HC of our Cowboys he just gained 100 lbs and dyed his hair black.
    When Jerry is the GM quality HC either stay away or come in for the FAT paycheck and practice saying YES YES YES YES....

    RIght, Kellen??

    I am not crying either. Yeah that's me wondering how some intelligent posters in here can be so emotionally stupid. But if Garrett bashing is going to be one of your things this entire upcoming season along with some other diehards then why not have a dedicated area for that. A bashing zone off the fan zone for former Cowboys coaches and players.

    Instead of giving out unsolicited advice on what other people should do, worry about yourself, and not clicking in threads you're clearly not mature enough to handle?

    Control your own actions, and what you can control. Not anyone else.

    Should’ve been fired after Chaz got manhandled by JAG boy Clayborn. Garrett just continued watching the massacre like the rest of us. No adjustments whatsoever.

    On paper a guy like Garrett looks like a good hire: former QB, spent several years in the NFL, Ivy Leaguer, played under good coaches. But it shouldn't have taken over a decade to realize he didn't have it.

    Jerry "football guy" Jones wanted to be right. He gave JG so long as much for his own ego as for any love of JG.

    Icing the kicker was his biggest mistake in that game, settling for a 50 plus yard field goal attempt was.

    Romo completed the pass to Dez with 2 timeouts left and JG allowed the clock to run down instead of trying to gain more yards to setup an easier fg attempt.

    That was cowardice at its finest.

    So many days. I forgot about that game. Just allowing ATL to tee off on the QB all game. My gosh that was a disgrace. Good post!

    Icing his own kicker is just the tip of the iceberg. There's no shortage of dumazz decisions on his part.

    You are probably right.

    But at the time..we all were so excited from starting out at 3-5 and ending up in the playoffs...

    Then beating an arch rival in Seattle..

    none of us was thinking fire Garrett.

    Frankly, Garrett did his best coaching that year. He went for 4th downs and did fake punts and stuff that was clearly out of character for him. Unpredictable he was.

    So I think you are too zoomed in on the LA loss.

    We were outcoached and their players just flat out outhit us. I thought the team was just too exhausted that day after all the adrenaline of the Seattle win.

    This happens all the time in every sport.

    The clincher was losing too much in 2019.

    So I don't know. Jerrah had run every permutation of Garrett he could afford to do before blowing it up.

    I am probably different than many here who did not blame Garrett. I blamed the players.

    The players did not want it enough in 2019 as they did in 2018.

    They had already performed like trained animals in 2018. They were not tough enough nor motivated enough to do it again.

    So Garrett had to go and the 'self destruct' button was pressed.

    Make any sense?

    Iol, if anyone has forgotten Garrett a mere 2 months after his contract expired they probably aren’t bright enough to keep themselves from repeating mistakes anyway.

    Besides that ...

    The time to remember is when faced with the same situation. There isn’t a situation to apply the lesson to at the moment.

    Remembering doesn’t require repeating an old mantra every day or not allowing oneself to move past one chapter and into the next. I don’t have to write a post every day to remind myself how stupid it was the time I drank too much and drive into a divided road sign, nor do I have to put a damper on taking a trip by dwelling on that old incident.

    None of us on this website created the history with Garrett, therefore we aren’t in a position to repeat that history anyway.. It’s Jerry that has to remember and learn.

    I suspect Jerry was still trying to come up with a reason to keep Garrett even after this last miserable year. Most Head Coaches that are fired are fired the day after the regular season ends. Not so in this instance. As much as I like the McCarthy hire we have to remember it's still Jerry that owns the team and he can make any decision he chooses.

    Our fans forget how are Defense dominated Seattle’s running game the week before. We man handled Seattle’s #1 ranked running game.

    I agree. I think the Rams players had a good idea what our D line was doing just before they did it.

    Like I've said numerous times already. If people can't handle the discussion, they can easily avoid the thread.

    I know that some have a hard time discussing bad Cowboys news.

    I think he should have been fired after losing to GB in playoffs when we were the 1st seed. GB had a historically bad defense which Atlanta exploited the following week. We weren’t ready to play ball. SMH should have put up at least 40-50 in that game.
