Dallas Cowboys: Reasons To Keep/Fire Garrett


With the impending win or go home week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Jason Garrett could be coaching his last game for the Dallas Cowboys. I for one believe that he should be given one more year, however, I do think he will be fired if the Cowboys lose on Sunday night. Here are some reasons to keep and fire Jason Garrett.

Reasons To Keep:

- The Cowboys have been in salary cap hell during his tenure making it hard to add quality depth.

- His teams have played extremely hard for him, no matter the circumstances.

- Dallas has been in competition for the division title in all 3 of his seasons at the helm.

- Areas usually left neglected (offensive line), have been addressed.

- His teams have been ravaged by injuries to key players every year.

Reasons To Fire:

- Garrett still has game management issues.

- This team has not been able to get over the hump during his tenure.

- Dallas has not been able to dovelope a young QB under Garrett.

The bottom line is that Dallas is a hard place to coach.  Jerry Jones’ constant media circus is not an ideal work place. I do feel that if Garrett can find a couple of good co-ordinators, that he gives this team the best chance to succeed in the near future. His game management issues are the major concern and they have to be fixed. His teams always fight until the end and there is something to be said for that, his team believes in him. Garrett has also led a rebuilding of sorts while keeping the Cowboys competitive.

I guess we will have to see what the Sunday nighter brings…

    Not developing a young QB should not be a knock. Secondly, I don’t think you can fully judge any coach under JJ’s thumb. I’m in the camp of keeping Garrett simply because he has never had a defense, never had an offensive line and hasn’t had an ample amount of time to put his stamp n this team.
