As a sporting fan I have used the preseason in the past to help me gauge talent and better understand what my favorite teams are trying to accomplish. The past few pre-season games have left me wondering what my Dallas Cowboys are trying to do to win games.
I have to say that I am not 100% sold on Jason Garrett's ability to lead. In fact I would say that he has done less with more talent than any coach in the history of the Dallas Cowboys. He has run a lot of talent out of townas well. At first I was thinking that maybe this is a good thing because the Cowboys seemed to be more flash than substance.
Getting rid of some guys was necessary to the revitalization of the franchise. The only problem is that the talent that Garrett has been responsible for bringing in has the same problems that the other guys had with far less production.
It's hard to understand what a team is doing and if it's going to take them anywhere but I guess time will tell if his moves are worthwhile. When I watch the Cowboys play I never know what they are trying to do offensively. They look good when they try to run but they are settled in on being a passing team.
One of the things I hate about former quarterbacks who become offensive coordinators is that they start to try and play through their current team. It's as if they are trying to prove that they either still have it or they never lost it.
Garrett has been marginal at best as a head coach. He sold us on something when he was interim head coach that had us all thinking that maybe as a head guy he had turned the corner. However as soon as that tag "Interim" was dropped he became what he always was.... A PassAHolic.
Maybe it works and maybe it doesn't but if if doesn't work, there is no way he shouldn't be sitting on the hot seat this year in Big D.
