I agree that it hasn't been all good or all bad with Garrett. We live in a world of extremes when the truth is generally somewhere in between. I think Garrett is a good motivator. I think he's good at providing structure. I think he's good at establishing a process for building with youth (although I haven't agreed with the idea that you can't supplement that process with a few great pieces to move it along at a faster pace.) My main problems with him are his offensive philosophy and his game management. These two aspects of his coaching hold us back. Essentially, Garrett is the opposite of Wade Phillips. Phillips is a great defensive mind who can't run a team. Garrett is a so-so offensive mind who can. The only hope we have left with Garrett is that Dallas turns the offense over to a great offensive mind and allows him to just be a manager-type coach instead of a system coach. It cannot be another situation where we bring in an OC who then has to meld his system with Garrett's philosophy.
