Jason Garrett's Biggest Mistakes of 2012

Two full seasons into Jason Garrett's head coaching era, and the Dallas Cowboys have been decidedly average.

In his first complete campaign as head coach, Garrett led Dallas to an 8-8 record. The final loss came in Week 17 to the New York Giants with a playoff berth on the line.

In 2012, the story was much the same. Another 8-8 product and another disappointment with a playoff spot on the line.

The game was a microcosm of the season.

Tony Romo made a few too many mistakes, the defense started to show holes and the head coach couldn’t figure out a way to turn things around.

Garrett's job is likely safe thanks to a 5-3 push over the team's final eight games and the way he led Dallas through the Jerry Brown, Jr. tragedy.

But there were a number of mistakes made by Garrett throughout the year that added to the Cowboys' painfully short final result.

So, let's examine Garrett's biggest errors of the 2012 season.
