The inability to get Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett to coach the Baltimore Ravens is indicative of how poor that franchise is. Expect the Ravens to win 3 games next year, folks. That team really needed Garrett to energize the lame offense.
But, when it comes down to it, Garrett staying in Dallas is good news. Apparently, Wade Phillips is returning to work side by side with Garrett and that brings some much-needed consistency to the team.
According to an ESPN article, the decision to stay revolved around Tony Romo.
A source credits owner Jerry Jones with convincing Garrett to remain in Dallas: “This is huge because changing systems right now would have been really tough on Tony [Romo].
This isn’t the first time Jones has convinced coordinators to stay put. He kept both Mike Zimmer and Sean Payton, but that effort didn’t pan out to championships. Many of us thought Payton was going to be the next Dallas coach.
Dallas fans are going to demand quite a bit from the Cowboys next year. All eyes will be on Tony Romo for sure. Another playoff loss won’t be tolerated and it could result in shakeups all over the place. This also will be a very interesting offseason.
