    Jason is a Lame Duck HC now. He’s gone regardless how we finish. Everyone knows it. I don’t believe he’d want to stay or be welcome if we made it to the Super Bowl.

    We still have a chance to finish strong and possibly make some noise in the playoffs.

    Jerry is making this decision because it’s easier on him to leave Garrett in place because he doesn't really want another HC but the atmosphere is too toxic now for success with Garrett.

    We might still back-in to the playoffs cause Egirls are even a bigger mess than we are. But with current environment it’s not conducive for success here.

    After Thursday night it’s still not too late. We’ll have 10 days to adjust and hopefully provide a spark or we’ll otherwise possibly lose out. Which again will make the decision easier on Jerry.

    Jerry, have some balls and do us all and Jason a favor. Once you know someone’s time is up it serves no one to leave him in place.

    I agree. He’s afraid of personal feelings above all else. Only chance to give this team a shot in the arm is to pull the trigger now.

    You seriously believe we have someone currently on the staff who is capable of turning this thing around overnight? Who? Why?

    A big change for you.

    You've been a Garrett guy because he's the best puppet around. Who is the better puppet on this staff? Sherman? Marinelli? Moore?

    I don't see those puppets being any better. May as well ride with the puppet who brought you here.

    It doesn’t matter. Keeping Garrett when everyone knows he’s gone will weigh everyone down.

    Garrett is a walk around HC. It won’t take much multi tasking from the other coaches to fill in.

    Keeping a Lame Duck HC is not the answer.

    Bingo. Its personal for Jerry. He enjoys chunmmng it up, and the camaraderie of being around the team. Its hard for him to see through the fog of his own feelings.

    Once the decision has been made its time to move on.

    We are better off without a Lame Duck HC.

    Agree but for a different reason. This season isn't lost. We have the pieces to beat good teams. Maybe the team would look better with a new leader and better in-game decisions. By keeping JG, Jerry is basically giving up on the season.

    It’s simply an easier decision for Jerry. This is about Jerry not the Cowboys.

    When everyone knows the leader is gone there’s no order. Better to cut ties.

    Let anyone put the headset on. Jerry can make decisions from the booth if needed.

    Leaving a Lame Duck in place is an admittance of defeat. It serves no purpose.

    JG was never really a leader............not the kind players looked up to or admired.

    I understand but this is even more of a dysfunctional situation leaving a Lame Duck in place.

    I prefer they keep Garrett until the end of the season and then start the new year with a fresh slate and no interference from an interim appointment. I want a new HC to come in and be given complete control over who stays and goes from the existing the coaching staff.

    Originally I thought it probably wouldn’t matter as Egirls would win division but after yesterday I see we can still win this division even if it’s by default.

    This is a tricky situation for Jerry. What we don't have a feel for how the players feel about Garrett. If they respect him or like him, firing him now may upset the team even more creating division in the locker room. Jerry said it already, he believes a move like that will be more disruptive than helpful. You could argue going 6-10 without Garrett is no different than going 6-10 with him and that would be true, but Jerry believes this team has a better chance of winning with Garrett simply because firing him would be a massive distraction, and it would be. At this point, Jerry is letting them play and hoping the players get angry enough to go out and win one game on their own. I think he thinks if they beat the Bears it will turn things around. I don't agree with him on that but I can see where he is coming from.

    I don't disagree Jerry's decision to wait until after the season to fire Garrett. The Cowboys are still in first place and are facing 4 teams with similar problems to Dallas. Just win and get in and see what happens. I am not for a second suggesting Garrett should remain as coach in 2020. Garrett should have been fired 5 years ago. His game management alone proved he is incapable of being a championship coach. There was never any point in investing 10 years in him, nice guy or not. Jerry needs to stop being pals with his employees. When they don't perform he needs to move on from them, especially his head coach and staff.

    Let Rod multi task. He’s not an interim HC we’d be interested in keeping. He’s fixing to retire anyway.

    Anything is better than keeping a Lame Duck HC.

    Why in the hell would we believe what Jerry is telling us?

    As always this is more about what’s comfortable for Jerry than what’s best for Cowboys Football.

    If you don’t believe Garrett should be here why would you believe he should stay now ? Makes no sense to me.
