I’m being a bit sarcastic here but when an owner pays a coordinator more than what another NFL team was offering that coordinator to become a head coach, what else should us Dallas Cowboys fans believe other than what my headline states?
ESPN’s Ed Werder, who has a hot daughter whom I’d love to, well, you know, reports that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones gave Jason Garrett $3 million a year to remain the offensive coordinator. That means the Falcons and Ravens lose.
But the amount of the offer is mindboggling. The whole situation with Jones and Garrett is odd. Usually, a head coach hires his coordinators. But Jerry Jones snagged Garrett out of Miami and hired him even before he hired a damn head coach. When Wade Phillips was hired, he already had one guy on his staff. This lead us all to believe a few things: first, we thought Garrett was going to be named head coach. Then we thought, once Phillips got the job, that he was a puppet, and that Garrett would take over the head coaching job after a year or two under his belt in Dallas.
And now this. So, here is to Jason Garrett, our new head coach. Go win us a damn record-breaking sixth Lombardi Trophy!
