After five games and three difficult losses, Dallas Cowboys fans have plenty of frustration to share with multiple options within the organization.
If you were to ask ten different Dallas Cowboys fans what is “wrong” with this team, you would likely get multiple different answers.
Some would blame the offense. Most would blame the defense. A few would likely blame coaching.
Regardless of who or what would get the blame, there is plenty to go around.
After finishing 13-3 last season and returning most of the key contributors from that run, starting 2-3 seems unfathomable. Factor in how those three losses have come about and the frustration is palpable.
One embarrassing blowout. Two games scoring 30+ at home and taking losses. Plenty of distractions on and off the field.
One thing we can all agree on is this.
The Dallas Cowboys fan base want someone to be the poster child of their frustration. The question though is who…
This week, I decided to run an poll on Twitter to take the temperature of that very question. Before I share and try to explain the answer, allow me to introduce the four options.
Head Coach Jason Garrett
Fans have long been on the fence regarding Garrett. Maybe it’s the robotic, monotonous press conferences. Maybe it’s the relentless clapping, regardless of whether or not something positive has just taken place. The lack of playoff success certainly does not help either.
Naturally, when the belief is that the talent is there and a team underperforms, the head coach is the likely scapegoat. Garrett becomes an easier target because his demeanor does not lend itself kindly to the fan base. Regardless of how the players seem to feel about him, fans just do not seem to like him.
