Jerry Jones wanted to be the head coach of the Cowboys, but he can't. So he hatched a plan in which he used Jason Garrett as a figurehead at the head coach position, and depended on Garrett to make his wishes come true. By 2013 it was clear that Garrett was an idiot, but Jerry refused to give up. He hatched a plan to win a Super Bowl with great players and great coordinators, with Garrett remaining as the figurehead at head coach so that Jerry could still play with his toy soldiers. And it almost worked. Jerry had gotten the players. Scott Linehan revived the offense in 2014 and the Cowboys were back to being competitive. But in 2015, with the most solid team since the 1991 Cowboys, Romo got hurt and Garrett was lost without him. Garrett and Jones shut down the offense and hoped to run the table upon Romo's return. This was idiotic. Garrett is such a poor coach he failed to recognize just how good the 2015/2016 Cowboys were. When Dak Prescott stood behind the best o-line in football it made him look like a marquee player, but it was fool's gold. But desperate to believe he had a player that would make him look good, Garrett again shot himself in the foot and abandoned Romo for Prescott. And here we are in 2019 with the most poorly coached team in the NFL. Not because of the coordinators; because of Garrett. But Jerry nearly pulled it off. His big mistake was he didn't understand how much damage not having a real head coach on the sidelines to give the rest of the team adequate direction. Garrett doesn't know which way is up.
