There have been two constants over the last few years that are directly responsible for the wins and losses of this team: the quarterback and the offensive coordinator.
One of them, the quarterback, has improved his game and made major strides to eliminate the mistakes that put his team in losing situations.
The other has regressed.
Jason Garrett is meticulous and organized and certainly has the smarts to coach a football team. But his offense has been unsuccessful. His play-calling has been uninspiring. His game management has been questionable.
This team never seems prepared. They never play with discipline and confidence. They always find themselves in a situation where they have to score late in games to win. That’s not a recipe for success.
The time has come to move on. I don’t know if that means luring Chip Kelly out of college. I don’t know if that means Jerry Jones hiring his good buddy Mike Holmgren. I don’t know if that means going after Andy Reid (who has had great success when given the right quarterback).
I don’t know who is qualified or why any head coach with a lick of self-respect would want to work for Jones, but I do know that Garrett isn’t working out.
