Fleetwood Mac manufactured this message: You can go your own way.

Only, if you are the Dallas Cowboys, you just can’t.

The next best thing for Jerry Jones to do is to hire a voodoo wizard to uncover what black magic hides underneath the armor. But outside of holding some ritual around AT&T Stadium, Jerry Jones should fire Jason Garrett.

Garrett finished his third full season as the head coach. Each season ended at a 8-8 mark.

Is it all Jason’s fault? Hardly. At the same token, however, a new voice, with a new identity, is required. Though you’d like to see optimistic qualities in your coach, applause and lipstick aren’t necessary instruments. That blueprint is beta.

Sometimes it is okay to admit it won’t be okay. To go easy on the lipstick. To hold a fist instead of clapping.

But you won’t get this from Jason Garrett. The position should be vacant.

Current defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer of the Cincinnati Bengals should be the 9th head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

    Wholesale change is needed in Dallas. After the comments Jerry made on his radio show, that’s not gonna happen. Zimmer would be a sound replacement for the poor game manager, Garrett. Odd to me that his gaff on not recognizing the delay of game penalty error and his team was robbed of 15 seconds was never brought up. Garrett’s inability to manage the game or the clock should be reason alone to fire him.

    Zimmer has a great resume. Why ruin it by making him the head coach of a team that is so mismanaged he will have no chance for success? I say stop the coaching carousel. It will do more harm than good. Why make Zimmer another yes man? Why subject him to not having the final say on which players to draft? Why refuse to let him choose his own staff or who to call the offensive plays? And last but not least why in the world would any coach worth his salt want to come to a team that has the worst salary cap problems in the entire league. Maybe if all writers would write about the real problem with the Cowboys rather than continuing to write about things that will make no difference maybe a change will be made.

    I have no problem with Zimmer as long as he can have final say over personel

  • fredbeard

    He’s never been a head coach but he’ll make a great head coach for the Cowboys really remember Nov Turner ? why take a step back when they haven’t taken a step forward maybe better to start firing some of the staff from Callahan, Kiffen, Ben bloom and Jerome Henderson Matt Eberflus also Mike Woicik and make Rod Marinelli Defense coordinator along with Leon Lett as offensive line coach

    Maybe next season, Im all in on Garrett for one final year…… For some reason Zimmer doesn’t seem to generate any true interest season after season…. He’ll be around next year if Garrett doesn’t get things straight

    Cowboys will never succed with the kind of gm have, not matters who the coach could be
