I think the "I just work here" remark after being demoted is what sealed his fate.
In terms of talent/coaching/media hype, I thoroughly disagree with the latter (media hype). The media hasn't hyped us up as being a talented SB winning team since 2010. We do have a lot of talent at specific positions that are severely being under utilized. Dez Bryant is a beast and is putting up top WR #s, but you can't tell me if he wasn't in a different offense a la Sean Peyton in New Orleans or with Brady in New England, that he wouldn't be used much better. When was the last time you've seen Dez in motion? Serious question. When? We RECENTLY just started lining him up in the slot for the first time in 4 years but that's the extent of the creativity. Dez balling is strictly on Dez and Romo, not coaches finding creative ways to get him open and creating mismatches.
Coaching is a problem but I don't believe getting rid of Garrett will make us better because it starts at the top with Jerry. The culture in Valley Ranch is toxic, period point blank. Our GM/President/Owner/Assistant Head Coach goes for the knees on our HC's and completely undermines their authority. You guys do know that Jerry speaks to the team before Garrett right? We have to win despite this toxicity. That pressure alone is something most coaches don't want to deal with.
And I don't blame Garrett, honestly. He's full aware how JJ is being that he was on those 2 SB winning teams so I think he's capable of dealing with his ******** while still putting a decent product on the field. Garrett is also not an idiot. I personally think that he knows if he can have success in Dallas, where pressure is at its highest when compared to the rest of the NFL while simultaneously having to deal with Jerry, would not only elevate his already big ego, but it will speak volumes on his resume. If you can win in Dallas, you are guaranteed another HC job with no problems.
Garrett's problem is his offensive philosophy. Despite Callahan calling the plays, people need to realize its still Garrett's offense. I'm willing to cut him some slack going forward because of the Denver game and because Garrett's imitation of the Air Coryell has always required a very good offensive line, and we now have somewhat of a decent one. But don't be surprised if we go right back to conservative based offense against Washington.
In terms of going forward, if we somehow lose to Washington, I still don't believe the season is over. Remember, we started 3-5 after losing to Atlanta last year and still had the opportunity to win the division week 17. With that being said, I don't think we lose to Washington.
Side note: I LOVED the fact that Jason locked Jerry out of the locker room last year after the Falcons game, with Jerry banging on the door furiously
P..S. **** Monte Kiffin. It's being reported that his ***** *** dipped off early to avoid the media, leaving the offensive guys on the ball to answer all questions. Punk ***...
