The Dallas Cowboys and it’s head coach, Jason Garrett, have high hopes for this season. Some believe the Cowboys have a talented team who could make a deep playoff run. Others consider their talent level overrated. Regardless, Garrett has had two and a half seasons to prove himself as an NFL caliber head coach. Many might argue he has failed in that attempt. And if the Cowboys have another losing season this year, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones might have to agree with them.
Garrett, who has never held a head coaching job at any level, has a record of 22-20 as the Cowboys coach. The last two years, he has led Dallas to consecutive 8-8 seasons without making the post-season. Currently, Dallas sits at 1-1 as they go into Week Three to face the St. Louis Rams this Sunday. And in some ways, this could be considered a must-win game for the Cowboys. Especially when you consider they have the New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, and Green Bay Packers and the rest of the NFC East coming up on their schedule. Obviously, there are no “gimmes” in the NFL. But the Cowboys must win against these perceived “less-talented” teams to have a shot at making the playoffs this year.
If Dallas loses this game, it signifies a bad omen for the rest of the season…and for Garrett. Regardless of what Jerry Jones says about his job security this year and beyond, another losing season has to end with Garrett’s pink slip, doesn’t it? What do you think?
