    In Defense of the Dallas Cowboys Coaching Changes

    Plenty of Dallas Cowboys fans will remain rightfully upset that Head Coach Jason Garrett, , and will stay for 2018 after finishing a season with aspirations at 9-7, outside the playoff field.

    The moves that have been made below these three primary coaches — to be criticized or praised — are ongoing, and look to continue a growing pattern of bringing in former players as position coaches. Scott Linehan has been given the reigns to retool his offensive staff, one still in need of a new leader at TE, WR, and most recently OL.

    Describe Jason Garrett in One Word or Phrase

    Entering his eighth full season as this team's head coach, their “leader of men,” his team is built in his image now more than ever.

    Whether you chose average, overrated, star-dependent, stale, process-oriented, charismatic, or any other term to describe Garrett, he is undoubtedly a player's coach. There's a reason why he mentioned meeting with players before coaches at his final of this disappointing season. Garrett said he would meet first with the players to delve into what needs fixing before getting to the coaches — many of which are already gone.

    The entirety of will serve as an amplifier for player's ideas with Garrett at the top in 2018, and when all his top players are on the field, the winning results have typically followed under this staff.

    Overall team health for the Cowboys is probably not an excuse that will save Garrett, Linehan, or Marinelli through another poor season. And it shouldn't.

    If there is one group that the generic “next man up” mentality resonates the most with, it is players being coached by former players who were sold the same thing. Not the fans, coaches, or the media.

    It will be these members of , along with some in the media calling for further, more meaningful , if Dallas looks helpless overcoming most shortcomings again next season.

    With months to recover, as well as adding talent to an already deep roster, the will forever prove if Jason Garrett's process is actually be worth the wait.

    After watching Kevin Sumlin at A&M for the last 6 years, the head coach matters. While I think linehan should have been fired, changing asst coaches is like rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic, it won’t matter.

    Sean, how can you call this roster “deep” when we can’t overcome the loss of Sean Lee or Tyron Smith for a few games? We barely tread water with our backup RBs.

    Romo called Garrett a “motivator”. That was his one word for his former coach. Tony said he was the type of coach that was involved with “each” player. I figure Romo would have more insight on Garrett than most. All that said, Jason is still in a prove it year. If not him, certainly Lineman and Marinelli.
