Turn Out the Lights, The Party’s Over

New Cowboys coach Jason Garrett

By Robert Snyder

Well, the tortured tenure of Wade Phillips as Cowboys Head Coach is finally over.

After one playoff victory and horribly inconsistent play spread out over three and-a-half seasons, Jerry Jones has moved on to interim head coach Jason Garrett.  Garrett was named head coach in waiting two years ago and he now gets 8 games to prove himself.

As someone who is not a Cowboys fan, I’ve always enjoyed the comedic aspect of Phillips’ tenure with Dallas.  The wasted timeouts and challenges, bad losses, and man-about-town Tony Romo have shown the Cowboys don’t have what it takes to be an elite team.

As I was listening to Jerry Jones’ Press Conference here on 1340 The Fan, I said to Ryan Hyatt that Jerry sounds like he is in denial.  Sounds like he doesn’t understand that his “efforts” as General Manager hinder his team- not help.  I think of the parallels between the 1980s Yankees and the 2000s & 2010s Dallas Cowboys.  Of course the only thing that helped the Yankees was the suspension of George Steinbrenner and the hiring of competent general managers and personnel directors.

It’s a shame that Wade Phillips final NFL head coaching job ended so badly, but it appears that is the destiny of all of Jerry’s head coaches.
