    Dallas Cowboys: What’s Jason Garrett’s Job Security?

    When you think of the top coaches in football, the names that come to mind are and Bruce Arians. Both coaches have aligned their teams for current and future success thanks to their quality drafts and their smart decision-making. To win a , a lot has to go right for a team. However, one of the biggest parts of the process is by stacking your team with talent and that's one thing has actually excelled at doing.

    The have been an enigma over the course of Garrett's tenure. Ever since Garrett took over as the interim in the middle of the 2010 season, the Cowboys have looked so good at times and so horrible at times. The blame is placed on Garrett for being unprepared and for having bad issues. However, when play-calling was given to and Garrett was given just head- duties, things seemed to go really well for Dallas.

    Perhaps the biggest issue over the course of Garrett's tenure has been is inability to manage the clock well. Time and time again, we see problems regarding challenges, clock, and timeouts. Fans see this and they also see his conservative play-calling and they are quick to judge Garrett. However, what they don't see is how much he means to the future of this team.

    When Garrett was named head coach, he and paired together to form a duo that has consistently brought in talented NFL prospects. , , , , and are a few players that have been brought in under this administration.

    Dallas has made the correct decisions in the past few years and if it weren't for the injuries to major stars like , , and , who knows where this season could've been and where it could've went? Despite the Cowboys' forgettable 2015 season, this is still a team that could make a Super Bowl run in 2016. Simply put, the is not the reason to blame for this season's debacle.

    I beg to differ. …the coaching staff has most of the blame. Yeah there were start players missing but there is too much talent on this team to lose seven straight. I'm watching the Cowboys play and I'm wondering. ..do they have a gamelan at all? Who scouted the opponents? Do they have any idea what the other team is trying to do? Also everyone was thinking that last year's offensive line was only going to carry on the same dominance this year. ..but we lost the O line coach. ..it makes a difference. I like Jason Garrett but I think he was much better at calling plays. All he ever talks about is getting players that play the right way. .how about getting some coaches that can breakdown game film and come up with a plan of attack

    I have never been a fan Jason Garrett, but I don't think this season is all on him! I look at the coordinators first! Defense….. Watching last week's defense come out fired up and actually attacking! I screamed where was that all year— to long has our dbs consistently asked to play 7 yds off receivers and letting the opposing QB pick us apart!
    Offense— I think linnehan didn't handle the transition of QBs in his game plan! IMO to vanilla and to worried of mistakes! I get risk/reward and field position but you have to be willing to throttle it

    That's 1 thing rod did was blitz more this past game. Look at the difference it made cousins could never get set up and throw unlike the other games . I was like you screaming where was it all year lol.

    Don't worry we went right back to our normal defense. We cannot get any pressure. I say fire the coordinators!

    I never liked Jason Garrett either. Jerry just wont fire him so easily. How the heck did Bill Callahan go the rival, Pathetic.

    I think Linehan is gone, and should be. Way too predictable. For example: jumbo package at goal line. I don't recall seeing a fake then throw to FB or TE that slipped out. It's ALWAYS a run up the gut. I think Linehan was a victim of circumstance last year. Who could screw up last year with the way the line and RB gelled? Plus you had healthy Romo. This year Linehan's flaws are showing.

    I think Rod should go too. I think the D is improved but I don't like they way it's deployed. I love Rod's fire, but you can't keep trying to get a square peg into a round hole. Our receivers NEVER press. Can we jam the opposing receivers? I saw Wilcox jam a GB receiver last night once when they came out in trips left. It was great! IIRC Rodgers had to take off running because it disrupted the pattern. More of that please!!!

    I think Garrett is safe, even though we should have won at least 2 more games without Romo. But the team plays hard for him. If Jerry didn't give him that extension last off season, he might have been gone this year. But I don't see it. If next year is a repeat of this year, he's gone.

    Agreed with you Bryan except for Rod Marinelli. I think he's doing a fine job, but we aren't running his defense completely because we don't have the right d-backs for it. We need guys who can play zone coverage, not guys who HAVE to play man all the time because they aren't smart enough to play zone. Marinelli's defense generates turnovers in zone coverage, but that's not what he's been able to use. When they use zone coverage, our d-backs get confused and give up plays constantly.

    I think Marinelli stays for one more year and there will be an overhaul of the defensive backs this offseason. Linehan needs to go.

    bryan08252

    Yeah Zac, I agree out DBs can't run Rod's defense. Sometimes when I write my responses, I don't make all my points or use all my reasons. Must be the old age!

    cjprine

    If they can't run zone, then cut them! Get people that can run your scheme! Or coach them up! Our secondary has been garbage well before rod came into town!

    My problem with rod is Rodgers pretty much did the same thing against last year!! We didn't blitz, he pretty much was able to pick us apart when he needed to
