I meant to say there's a slim chance we keep our coordinators. That may be the biggest factor for me. It's kind of like starting over, and here we wait another how many years to build.
And the question is who hires the replacement coordinator(s)?
The fault, for me, with this team has always been with the chain of command confusion these players have dealt with and continue to do so. They see how their team operates and how all the others operate and have to ask themselves "what's wrong with this picture"?
These aren't worldly people with experience with different structures, they've only had one job, playing football. They answered to one man, their HC, and I do not think that has been the case with the Cowboys since Parcells left. He wasn't great but he was the man where the buck stopped and his players knew it.
What do you think went through the minds of his players after that playoff loss to the Niners when they heard their HC say he had no say in the play calling? And he's an offensive coach and was hired because of that.
The sad part is I do not see this getting better even when Booger is not running the show.
He needs to take a lesson from the Allies in WWII when they had to push Churchill back out of the military and let Eisenhower run the show.
I remember the early and best advice I got from the man who promoted me to my first General Manager position in radio. He told me I would encounter many problems in the job but in every case look first in the mirror to make sure I am not it. I did not always heed that advice and sometimes I was the problem.
Booger is holding his team back and stunting the growth of talent in his players by not giving the full reins to the coaching staff.
