Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett Ranked 13th Best By

is full of controversial topics and in-fighting. Whether it be “Dak vs. Romo” or “Zeke vs. Ramsey” us fans always seem to find something to argue about.

But when it comes to the , I don't know if there is a more diverse on any one man than there is of . Last year's NFL Jason Garrett, by the way.

Some think he is a sure-fire top five coach in the league, while others believe he is simply a beneficiary of the talented players he gets to work with. Some, like myself, think he lies somewhere of the middle of those extremes, but is closer to “very good/great” than he is to “bad.” recently ranked the 32 head coaches in football, slotting Garrett 13th in the league. When I first read the number I thought, “okay, that doesn't seem too egregious.” But after reading further into the coaches which were ranked above him, and further evaluating Garrett's skills, I believe missed the mark.Jason Garrett

In my opinion, there is no way I would rank head coach John Fox (12th) or head coach (10th) above Garrett. While I feel strongly about those two, it does get a little hairier with the other competition.

' is ranked 11th, two spots ahead of Garrett. Quinn just recently took his team to the , defeating the team which did Garrett's in during the game. Whether you agree with the ranking or not, it is hard for me to be too opinionated on either side of this argument.

The next coach, (9th) is where I would draw the line. Personally, I think both Dan Quinn and Jason Garrett have proved over the past few seasons they are better head coaches at this point than Payton. Yes, Payton does have a Super Bowl ring, but that was nearly a full decade ago.

Things have changed. Payton's Saints have fallen under .500 for three straight seasons, where Garrett's Cowboys have won 12 and 13 games, as well as a playoff game, over the same time span.

Regardless of where you think Jason Garrett should be ranked, it is important that we as the fans recognize he is underrated around this league. To me, Garrett and the entire have earned our respect during their tenure in Dallas, and have built a team and a culture which can be very successful.

Now, it is time to take that next step and go further into January.
