Jason Garrett In Must-Win Situation
If there is one National Football League coach who is definitely on the hot seat with the 2012 season ending this weekend, it is Jason Garrett. Garrett must have the Dallas Cowboys defeat the Washington Redskins for him to have any hope of keeping his job in my opinion. The Cowboys have underachieved in Garrett’s tenure as coach and this is the best chance Dallas has had in a few years and must take advantage of it.
It has been a different team in the second half of the season with the emergence of Dez Bryant and Dallas is still clinging to the hope of making the playoffs with just one win needed. Garrett is a big favorite of owner Jerry Jones but how much longer will Jones want to wait on Garrett to do something and get the Cowboys to a Super Bowl? I suspect he is getting impatient and wants results now. This becomes a game that is for Garrett’s job.
If Garrett is fired, the next question will be who would Jones look to for his next head coach? There are tons of big-name coaches out there who aren’t doing much right now but may not want to come back or take the Dallas job. This could force Jones to bring Garrett back or go look in the college ranks at someone like Chip Kelly. It is a big game no matter what for the Cowboys this week but if the players want to have Garrett stick around, this is a must-win game.
