Jason Garrett Isn’t Going Anywhere, Yet
After the game, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he’s not sure if his team can finish with an 8-8 record. Wait; did Jones let the cat out of the bag, as far as Garrett’s future is concerned? Does he really doubt Garrett’s coaching abilities?
While one speculates Jones will fire Garrett, I just don’t see that happening. We must remember that Jones handpicked Garrett to be his head coach. Garrett, if you recall, was a very young coach in terms of experience when he left Miami to become Dallas’ offensive coordinator.
After his “offensive genius” helped the Cowboys’ offense rank second overall in the NFL, everyone wanted a piece of Garrett. The Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons came calling about Garrett being their next head coach in 2008, but they left empty-handed. Garrett, instead, chose to stay in Dallas and why wouldn’t he? He had a good system in place, and the pay wasn’t bad either. In fact, Garrett was the highest paid coordinator in the league.
The fact that Garrett chose not to leave Jones’ side showed loyalty to Jones and the Cowboys. What we’re seeing now is Jones showing Garrett the same through patience and by not canning him midway through a disappointing season.
Garrett’s only in his second full season as the head coach, and while we as Cowboys fans expect greatness from the get-go, we have to step back and realize that it is a “process” and that it will take time. As much as I don’t like to admit it, this team wasn’t and isn’t built to win a championship, yet.
Rome wasn’t built in a day boys and girls, and neither will this team. Hang in there Cowboys fans. What we’re experiencing are growing pains.
