    My reading comprehension sucks. What is he saying? Is he saying that means McCarthy is only interviewing for OC? OR is he saying Garrett is not a consideration for HC again in Dallas???

    Yeah I had the same thought. Although McCarthy is much more impressive than Garrett. Still the way this has gone down has me paranoid and coming up with plenty of conspiracy theories.

    He’s saying McCarthy would not come here for an interview unless Garrett was already gone

    I think the simplest and likeliest scenario is this: The Cowboys have privately informed Garrett that they plan to go in another direction. However, they are going to hold him to his contract, and he remains an employee of the Cowboys until 1/14. This delays Garrett from interviewing for the Giants job or any other until he becomes a free agent. Just because the Cowboys haven't told the world their plans doesn't mean that they don't have them.

    As far as McCarthy, I think he's an intriguing candidate, and the analytics aspect is sorely needed. I still would like them to broaden the search before settling on someone. This is too important of a hire to close up shop and settle for someone you interview on day two.

    Does this also prevent Garrett from interviewing with other teams?

    Yes, until his contract expires.

    That doesn't mean he's gone.

    Just means he won't return as HC.

    Also, if Garrett was certain he wasn't coming back here in any capacity, he'd say so publicly so that any other potentially interested team would know. No reason for him to keep it a secret.

    So, I have come to the opinion that they are not going to do anything till Garrett's contract expires on the 14th.
    No firing, no commitments to new coaches or old. They are just going to let it drag out and then move on.

    I would like to see them interview Robert Salah or Dennis Allen along with Gary Kubiak.

    It's a battle of Jerry's red-headed step son vs his real son.

    Stephen: Dad, I've interviewed 2 Head Coaching candidates.

    Garrett: Jerry you're like a Dad to me..I'm better than those guys...are you kidding me...Marvin Lewis...

    Stephen: Dad, Marvin Lewis fulfills the Rooney Rule.

    Garrett: Jerry/Dad, Stephen is going to take the credit if a new HC is hired and it works...

    Right? The agent works FOR the player, not the other way around. Stupid.

    I’ve got flip flops that are more impressive than JG.

    Wasn't advocating, really, but suggesting that that's a more likely scenario than McCarthy coming to Dallas just to interview for OC.

    But... in case I wasn't clear before...

    Okay, but I can't imagine that he sees HC of Dallas as his only option. There's got to be a red herring in the mix here.

    Agree, they decided a year ago this was Garrett's last year but that was finalized at the final gun of the Bears game.
