    At Least We Do not have Jason Garrett

    Did anyone see the complete and utter collapse by the Cowboys today. The coaching in the second half, especially play calling and time management was as bad as it could possibly be. Jerry Jones has a complete man crush on Garrett but he is a crappy coach pure and simple. You have a running back that cannot be stopped, and go completely away from him. All you need is a couple first downs or even to take a lot of time of the clock running the ball and you keep the throwing the ball until you throw a pick. The coaching in that second half was as bad as it could possibly be.

    Both are coordinators masquerading as HCs. Not everyone is a HC. Being a good coordinator is nothing to be ashamed of.

    Garrett said in his presser Romo opted out of a called run play when he threw one of his picks. They asked him if Romo opted out of any other run plays during the end of the game and he said he didn't know. So either he just wanted to throw Romo under the bus just a little bit or he really is clueless. I liked Dez Bryant leaving the field early too. Maybe he can work out in the off season with Holmes and get a few more pointers.

    Garrett wasnt even a good coordinator. He has always had some great player to work with and Dallas's O was always throwing away games. He can never hold a lead. Remember our home opener a few years back? That is what he is. He makes it easy for teams to get the ball back when they are behind. He can blame Romo all he wants he is the one calling plays that puts him in that spot.

    He and Rex could be OC and DC on a squad next year.

    And Romo has shown time after time that he can't handle that spot.

    If Namath sold his soul to win the Super Bowl maybe we need a ginger head coach since they don't have souls. Buuuuuuut yeah Jason Garrett sucks. He's an above avg OC tho.

    Romo gets all the blame and he does have a proclivity to come up small when it really matters, but he also gets no help from his team. He is put on an island and whether they win or not is 100% on his shoulders.

    Funny thing is that there is about a 90% chance that the final Sunday night game for the third year in a year is Dallas playing in a win and go to the playoffs situation.

    And that team would be lucky to have both of them.

    I heard a stat last night that was odd. The Cowboys ran 30 plays with a 20+ point lead and 24 of those plays were passes.

    The issue isn't Garrett, it is the owner. So yes, we have the same exact problem as Dallas (and Washington), and none of them are going away anytime soon.

    Wrong. Garrett is horrible. His niche is offense and he continues to fail in that area. Rex knows defense, its offense that hurts him.

    I only saw snippets of the game so I can't fully put that in context, but on the face of it, its outrageous. Any idea what the approximate completion ratio was?

    It's insane to say that Romo is the problem. When it comes to the Cowboys and Tony Romo, this is the most telling stat.

    The Cowboys are 9-7 in the last 3 years when scoring 30 points or more. That means, even when Romo generates more than 4 TDs for the offense, the team has had a slightly above 50% chance of winning. That's incredible. The rest of the NFL has won 88% of their games in that situation, and Romo's team is basically barely above .500.

    In other words. No matter how Romo plays, he has to be expected to keep making plays in the 4th quarter, otherwise the team won't win, because the defense is that bad.
    Dallas is 5th in the league this year in 4th quarter points scored, and last in the league in 4th quarter points allowed.
    Last year they were 1st in the league in 4th quarter points scored, and 23rd in the league in 4th quarter points allowed
    in 2011 they were 6th in the league in 4th quarter points scored, and 19th in the league in 4th quarter points allowed.

    I really don't think the problem is Romo.

    Jerruh is the issue. It's tough to be a coach when you are forced to act as the owner's stooly.

    Until Jerruh realizes that Jimmay won him titles, Jerruh isn't winning crap. Even Parcells couldn't take his crap too long.
