Will this season be Jason Garrett's last as coach of the Dallas Cowboys?
Boy did he show up with great expectations! Hired by the Cowboys in 2007 as offensive coordinator, Garrett had the Cowboys humming along as the number 2 offense in the league. By 2008 his $3 million per year salary made him the highest paid assistant in the NFL. Halfway through the 2010 season Garrett became head coach. Fast forward to today. Garrett’s record as head coach is 21-19, including back to back 8-8 records in both of his full seasons; and NO PLAYOFF APPEARANCES! Most watchers of the game will acknowledge that talent isn’t what is keeping the Cowboys from playoff success. So what gives? Jerry Jones has continued to give his full support to Garrett. Despite Jones calling these last two seasons with Garrett at the helm two of the most disappointing during his tenure, Jones is giving no thought to a Dallas future without Garrett. "Everything I'm thinking about is not only about how to beat the Giants when we open up [the season], but also about what our future is in a plus manner or in a positive way with Jason," Jones said during a news conference to open training camp. "I look to the future with Jason, not just through his contract that we're sitting here with right now. I think he has a couple of years left on his contract, but that's not a thought.” Is Jones to be believed? Will Garrett survive another season with no playoff appearance? Let me know what you think!
