Is This The End of The Jason Garrett Era In Dallas?
The Dallas Cowboys. America’s Team. One of the most scrutinized organizations in the history of the NFL seems to be the center of attention during every football season due to their high expectations of winning.
Their history spans for about six decades and varies from a handfull of Lombardi trophies , memorable moments and even losing seasons.
Since his promotion to head coach back in 2011, high standards has been placed for Jason Garrett to lead America’s team back to the Superbowl after a 23 year absence. Despite coaching talented players throughout his tenure, Garett has only made the playoffs three times and has a 2-3 record during those appearances.
Regardless of being 1st in an underachieving NFC East division, the Cowboys are 6-7 this season and all fingers point at Jason Garrett for the season struggles.
Despite having offensive star power such as the likes of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot, the Cowboy offense have struggled moving the ball and missed tackles have been a major issue for their defense the last three games posting a 0-3 record during that time with losses to the Patriots, Bills and Bears.
Many have called for owner Jerry Jones to end the Jason Garett era in Dallas but Jones expressed his desire to keep Garett as head coach for the remainder of the season despite the teams poor performances.
“He is a good coach. He is one of the smartest coaches and one of the hardest working coaches. He knows this team better than anybody,” Jones said.” I am glad to have him. He is the guy for the job.”
Garett is coaching on his final year of his contract and it will be interesting to see if Jerry Jones decides to offer him another contract to stay in Dallas or move on and change the landscape of cowboy football with the goal of lifting another Lombardi Trophy.
