    Loss to Minnesota Could be the Final Nail in Jason Garrett’s Coffin

    The kind of seemed like a do or die situation for the current Head Coach Jason Garrett. He is currently in the last year of his contract and his future with the Cowboys organization could be hanging in the balance, especially after the devastating loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

    If Jason Garrett isn't extended beyond this season, this loss to Minnesota could possibly be where his career with the Dallas Cowboys started to circle the drain. There are still several games left on the Cowboys schedule this season, but this one loss could be the one that ends up knocking them out of the . If that's true, it's hard to believe JG will be retained.

    , and son Stephen, have both fully supported Jason Garrett since he became the Cowboys full-time head coach back in 2011 after serving as the interim HC for in 2010. That's nearly a decade of the Jones' sticking by JG through all of the thick and thin over years. That unwavering support however could be coming to an end though.

    The proof is in the pudding as they say. As a head coach Jason Garrett is slightly above average according to his all-time win/loss record. His regular-season record as the HC with the Cowboys is 82-62 (.569) and he's 2-3 (.400) in the postseason. Add all of that up and he's 84-65 (.564) in his career… slightly above average.

    If I know anything about the Jones', I know getting the Dallas Cowboys back to the promised land as one of the best teams in the NFL is at the top of their list. That's why we've seen them over the years take chances on players other teams wouldn't in order to put together the most competitive roster they possibly could. Now that attention might need to be shifted from the players to the head coach.

    Much like the Jones', I've supported and stood by Jason Garrett over the years. That support is dwindling though after each and every loss this season, at least on my part. Personally, I'm ready to find some new blood and move on. What the Jones' end up doing though is completely up in the air.

    I want to believe the Dallas Cowboys are ready to move on from JG, but I'm not completely convinced. The fact that his current contract is about to expire after the season suggests they're at least considering parting ways, but that's all it does. I think how the rest of season turns out after the devastating loss to the Vikings will end up determining his fate.

    If JG somehow sneaks the Cowboys into the playoffs it could save his job. That unfortunately is no easy thing to do with the teams they have left to play this season. Because of that, the Week 10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings could end up being the final nail in Jason Garrett's coffin.

    What do you think? Is it time to part ways with Jason Garrett?

    1. yeah i would completely agree with you. i’ve been a fan of his for a while now but last year and thus far this year have me thinking it’s time to move on.

      problem is…. who?

    2. I agree 100%. Jason Garrett has had the last 10 seasons to get this team to the SB, and yet every year it is the same old story. They fall on their faces in the playoffs. Every season they look like SB contenders on paper just to have them have a mediocre season. Back in 2010 Garrett was the hot new OC who knew how to win, but he either can’t or won’t adjust his game plan. Last season it was Scott Lineman who was the reason the Cowboys were so mediocre, and he was shown the door. This year it is the same old story, they play really good for a game or two, and then get totally embarrassed in the next one. The games against the Saints, Jets, and Vikings are good examples. Now they are facing some really good teams the rest of the season in the Patriots, Bills, and Rams. Yes it is long past time for the Cowboys to move on from Jason Garrett

    3. JJ once said he regretted pulling the trigger too quickly on Chan Gailey – should have given him more time. (No, not really. Chan Gaily did nothing as a HC. On the other hand, Cleveland pulled the trigger too early on Bill Belichek. That’s some regret.) The Jones boys have been waiting, hoping Jason Garrett could grow into the coach he’s capable of. Doesn’t seem to be happening. In his defense, front office has only figured out talent acquisition in the last five years or so. We learned the year after Tony Romo left that his gambling, gamesmanship covered a number of Cowboys personnel weaknesses. (Every time Romo broke his collarbone, the team collapsed.)

      Unfortunately, C-boys no longer control the line of scrimmage between the tackles on either side of the ball. Kris Richard brought a great reputation/resume but hasn’t brought turnovers or better pass pro to the defensive secondary as promised. And I love Zeke, but truly great runners will create yards regardless of the strength of the O-line (See Adrian Petersen the season at a broken Redskins organization as the most recent example.)

      If you don’t control the line of scrimmage and you cannot create turnovers, you can’t control the clock. Then your defense gets gassed and the opponent starts to roll over you at will. Then you can’t get the offense on the field to score points to recover. It becomes a cascading series of problems that a coaching staff can’t control.

      They’ve got enough talent and coaching to beat half of the NFL. Only because the NFC East is weak do they stay in the playoff hunt. Most other divisions, they would be out by now. As a result, we the fans will be treated to more of the same. Since we keep doing what’s not working, we will continue to get results that don’t work. And… …Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.

    4. Sorry, in my opinion it’s all about business. As long as the stadium seats are filled and people keep buying merchandise, Jerry and his son are quite content with all of the game outcomes. If he truly cared about getting another ring, he would have got rid of Garrett a while ago. Jerry is smart he knows how to play both sides of the football coin. He’ll stay competitive but he’s not going to work harder than he has to in an effort to win another super bowl. Again, as long as $$$ keeps coming in. He’ll eventually let Garrett go and the next coach will be given similar chances to survive. He’s got a lot of people fooled by his enthusiasm to bring in good players and pay them well. Despite this being a sport, which typically drives motivation to win, this is all business…winning is not the objective. It was in the 90’s because Jerry had not achieved it yet. It then was easy to achieve so the rings kept coming. Once Jerry realized he was still making a lot of money even when he was losing a lot of games he just kept running the business to maintain average performance. Don’t get me wrong he likes to win games like most people but he absolutely has no desire to work incredibly hard to get the Cowboys back to the Super Bowl. If he could simply buy players he’d do it all over again but firing a friend even if it’s in the best interest of the franchise, is not his style.

    5. JG should’ve been gone & again that’s the problem with this organization, they’re the last people 2 c things, which is so perplexing bc they’re so innovative off the field n EVERY way ! They need 2 find a HC that matches their off the field mantra, new & innovative !
