    I’ve heard many times over the years, that one way to judge your team’s head coach is to look at how well their teams play after a bye week or after having a bye week in the playoffs. Last night as I watched the game, I thought it would be interesting to see how well Garrett’s teams have ranked against other teams in those situations.

    2011 was the first full year of Jason Garrett as Head Coach of the Cowboys. Now in his ninth full season as HC, Garrett’s record after a bye is a mediocre 5-4, almost mirroring his overall winning %. The one time in his tenure his team earned a #1 playoff seed, earning a coveted bye in the playoffs, the team lost at home after the bye. That makes his total “after a bye” record as 5-5.

    How does that compare with other NFL teams after a bye? Garrett’s teams rank 18th of 32 in post bye matchups since he started in 2011.

    Here is a link if you want to view these rankings yourself: https://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/trend/win_trends/is_after_bye?range=yearly_since_2011

    Comparing Garrett to some other Coach’s post bye records: (Some teams haven’t had their bye yet this year- others like NE have had multiple byes in the playoffs- thus the number discrepancy)
    • Bill Belechick 13-3
    • John Harbaugh 8-2
    • Sean Payton 7-2
    • Pete Carroll 7-3
    • Mike Tomlin 6-4
    It’s no coincidence that in the last decade plus, these guys have all won a Super Bowl or in BB’s case, several SBs.

    Too bad Jerry won’t allow an Elite HC.

    It's amazing we are competitive with our dysfunctional organization.

    Sometimes i think Reality should just takes posts like this by you and pin them and lock them. There is no discussion needed after your comments here.

    Three moves to checkmate.

    What’s really sad is we have an owner who doesn’t care enough to bring in an Elite HC.

    Why are bye weeks treated any different than any other week during the real season? The same amount of preparation goes into each game but the first one. The CBA doesn't allow them to make the players put in more work because it's a bye week. The bye week is usually for players to get additional time off to heal up.

    I think the bye week record is more of a reflection of what other team they played coming out of the bye. The exception is the bye week of the playoffs and I do not trust Garrett to have his team playoff ready if he has that additional week.

    Do we know what players do on a bye week? Coaches? It is obvious the Cowboys players do not spend that week reflecting on not creating penalties.

    Our solution is so simple.

    Hire a dream team front office and or coaching staff.

    Wonder why our owner settles for puppets and leftovers?

    We know that Prescott had 4 Wisdom teeth pulled. Maybe he thought that was a big tooth on the first play . Lol

    But you’re right coach. A bye week is a week off not an extra week to prepare. A time to heal or have a procedure. 4 wisdom teeth doesn’t sound like fun,

    :) did you post this last year?

    I still say you underestimate the JJ issue, which makes apples to apples comparisons near impossibles - stats have limits

    at least JG's trending up :)

    Coach I think what the post bye week results show is more of a reflection on coaching prep than player prep. This shows especially in the playoffs when your players have an extra week to rest and the coaches have extra time to prepare for two possible opponents.

    Getting your team’s mental focus to stay sharp is always a coaching challenge. The better the HC, the more attention seems to be paid to detail and for the entire 53 man roster to be prepared.

    It's a shame,the players love Garrett and play hard for the him. You would think he would reward them by giving them a solid game plan and put them in the best position to reward their efforts:(

    yes, mistake free football is always a goal - IMO play making is far more important
