Jason Garrett has been the head coach in Dallas for three complete seasons, and all of them have ended with 8-8 records.
All three seasons, the Cowboys could have made the playoffs with a Week 17 win. All three times, they lost. The Dallas faithful should not be the least bit surprised the team fell to Philadelphia to end the year.
With a defense that struggled to stop almost every offense it faced, this Cowboys team could only go so far in 2013. It seems like there has been one obvious flaw to the construction of Dallas' roster for the past several seasons.
The Cowboys as of right now are not a team built for success. Garrett has struggled to figure out when and when not to call timeouts or go for fourth-down conversions for three years. His head coaching record sits at exactly .500 when looking at his three complete seasons in Dallas.
This team continues to try to win in spite of whatever that one big flaw is instead of trying to create no flaws. Whether it's the offensive line, defensive play, injuries, etc., there is always something keeping the Cowboys from being a legit contender.
Dallas is a proud and historic NFL franchise that just hasn't been able to get out of its own way in recent years. Whether it's Garrett icing his own kicker or the team blowing a 23-point lead against Green Bay, it's always something with these Cowboys.
The mentality and approach by the organization needs to change if the Cowboys want to become one of the NFL's top teams once again.
