    He needs to fire the coaches that don't support it. It's his team, if they don't like it, shut the fudge up or get the fudge out! It's easy to find assistant coaches.

    We haven't even been to an NFC championship in 25 years. Our roster is a bloated mess of overpaid veterans. We aren't dodging any bullets.

    McCarthy, was a needed "breath of fresh air" over Garrett. Having said that, I am glad this team brought in Quinn; and Moore needs to step it up on the play calling. McCarthy, seems like an older, heavier Garrett. Nothing but a figure on the sidelines, picking up a paycheck. I hope that he proves me wrong this year. Mr. Jones, could pull any poster's name out of a hat, and pay us to stand on the sideline and give comments when called for, at press conferences.

    A good QB can cover up a lot of trash coaching.

    If I’m hiring a college coach it’s gonna be a young guy with an innovative scheme
    Not an old guy
    Now I will say his offensive system should fit TL very well
    Very similar to what he ran in college
    The other thing is I’d want to surround him with former HC guys to help him transition to the nfl and specifically on the opposite side of the ball
    To me though the most important trait in a HC is a guy that either through fear, respect or whatever, gets players to play their tails off
    Parcels, jimmy, Tomlinson all are guys who get the most out of players
    Parcells was not the GM he thought he was and he’d have been even better just letting a smart GM buy the groceries. But he could win with inferior talent

    Do you know what this site would be like right now if Urban was the HC and almost hired Linehan, had the strength coach incident, and signed Tebow? We would be going nuts and media circus would be absurd.

    My post is about us being skeptical if he was hired and did the same. The moves he made would make me very skeptical as a fan and I believe if he keeps stacking these types of decisions up he won’t be an effective coach. If so, then yes, a bullet was dodged.

    Too early to tell if we dodged a bullet...we aren't even sure if we dodged a bullet with McCarthy yet.

    As does every successful NFL coach. Lombardi had HOF Bart Starr, Chuck Noll had HOF Bradshaw. Shula had HOF Griese and Marino, Walsh had Montana and Young. Jimmy had HOF Aikman. Marv Levy had HOF Jim Kelly. Belichick wasn't the genius he is now until he got HOF Brady. Dungy was an avg coach until he went to Indy and got Manning in his prime. Andy Reid was a guy that couldn't win the big one until he got Mahomes.

    Tebow was already eligible for the NFL pension.
    Three seasons is the mininum.
    Tebow played for the Broncos the 2010 & 2011 seasons, then for the Jets the 2012 season.

    Jerry learnt his lesson not to hire desperados from college like Jimmy Johnson, Urban Meyer, Nick Saban etc. They wouldnt know how to run a pro team.

    Actually, he made the call to draft Lawrence. Your timeline is wrong.

    From what I've read here at Cowboys Zone - many don't think Lawrence will cut the mustard. (Barring injury - I think he will.)

    Tebow was an easy call, though he may not make the final 52. He's Urban Myers all-time favorite player. Plus. he's taking some pressure off Lawrence. Nobody is talking about the #1 overall pick since they signed Tebow. Instead, the focus is on Tebow. This may allow Lawrence to adapt to the NFL with a little less of the spotlight pressure.

    Lol I'd have to say that's well beyond the norm. Parcells was a hell of a coach though. The defense helped quite a bit as well.
