REPORT: Cowboys Will Not Re-Sign Jason Garrett Without Deep Playoff Run

While the have maintained that they won't fire during this disappointing , that mercy apparently won't extend into next year. According to a yesterday, the Cowboys have no intention of bringing Garrett back unless the team has significant success in the .

Despite their current 6-7 record, Dallas remains in first place in the pathetic . If they can maintain control over the final three weeks of the regular season, the Cowboys will be hosting a playoff game in the of the tournament.

As reported by the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, just winning the division or even winning a single playoff game won't be enough anymore for and the Dallas .

“Deep” isn't an exact term. Dallas has been to the of the playoffs a three times under Garrett, so one would assume that we're talking about something greater.

Would getting the Game for the first time since 1995 be enough to save Jason's job?  Or have we reached “ or bust” now for the Cowboys ?

Of course, few have much faith at this point in the Cowboys have any postseason success. Even if they can fight off the Eagles and win the division, they seem destined to get bounced in the first round by whatever team they end up playing.

But crazier things have happened, and the only reason Garrett is still around today is that the Jones family still see him as the team's best option for 2019. They'd rather go with the fantastic hope of a turnaround than the final nail in the coffin.

That said, if the report is accurate, then all of you who are worried about Jason Garrett returning just to be Jerry Jones' puppet or “yes man” should be happy. Barring the completely unexpected, the Dallas Cowboys will have a new head coach in 2020.

Jones needs to escape from this malady like a healed man from leprosy. He should’ve ditched him long ago. The “children” are allowed excuses for mediocrity. Garrett never had the fire & drive push the overpaid Cowpatty flops to success. I’m a fan for 52 yrs & overly sick of all of them. No thanks, I’ll root for a winner.

Amen, Rab! I never liked the firing of Tom Landry, but it brought about 3 Super Bowls…but ‘zip’, since 1995! Mr. Jones’ arrogance has caused this team to flounder for decades…and, HE doesn’t seem to care. I truly don’t understand Cowboys fans rewarding him w/season tix, full attendance, AND a 300′ + yacht/ship! Garrett has had 10 yrs to figure it out, and he hasn’t……But, the real fault was Jerry not figuring that out 5 yrs ago…..
