He’s the second longest tenured coach in the NFL and the head coach of one of the NFL’s most recognized franchises and brands and he should be fired, post haste.
Jason Garrett has been the Dallas Cowboys’ head coach since 2008 taking over from Wade Phillips. Since then he has compiled a 70-58 record has one playoff victory and if the Cowboys continue their current 3-5 path they will finish under .500 six of his nine seasons.
The Cowboys were beaten at AT&T Stadium on Monday night by the Tennessee Titans 28-14, the worst loss after a bye week the Cowboys have suffered since 2004.
Dak Prescott continues to frustrate the Cowboys and their fans. Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot took the league by storm in 2016 and has regressed in their progress since with Elliot being suspended for the majority of the 2017 season and Prescott failing to put the team on his shoulders and elevate a receiving corps that has struggled mightily since the release of Dez Bryant.
The offensive line, once the gold standard of NFL O-lines, has suffered through injury and inconsistent play.
The Cowboys’ schedule gets tougher in the remaining weeks of November and into December with three of the next five games against division opponents and playoff contenders.
Another sub .500 season without playoffs await the Cowboys and there will almost certainly be a complete overhaul of the coaching staff and the roster.
One thing that will remain the same is owner Jerry Jones who also serves as the team’s general manager. Ownership brings job security.
