Dallas Cowboys fire: Tension among coaching staff, Dallas playoffs a key factor

Will the Dallas Cowboys fire their coaching staff if the football team doesn’t make it to the playoffs? According to a new report, rising tension among some coaching staff members and Jason Garrett is at an all-time high this week, and that the officials worry they might be fired if the Cowboys fail to succeed in the coming games, with the playoffs being a key factor. The NY Daily News shares what stakes are being raised this Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013.

Having the Dallas Cowboys fire certain members of the coaching staff — or at least the pending possibility of this — is a cause for definite contention among fellow NFL fans this week. Quoted “lingering tension” between Tony Romo and Jason Garrett, in tandem with Jerry Jones’ anger over his team’s lack of making it to the playoffs, might lead to a change in overall staff within the Big D before long.

The ESPN press release notes that Dallas hopes the third time this year will be the charm for a big win.

“For the third straight year, the Dallas Cowboys will be facing a do-or-die situation in Week 17. This year, however, the stakes might be even higher … Dallas will play for the NFC East title next Sunday night against the Eagles. A win, and they are in the playoffs. A loss? That might yield less than desirable results for some coach members, to say the least.”

It appears that there is rumors that head Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, as well as many (if not all) main members of his staff might be fired if Dallas fails to make it to the playoffs once again, even though Jones has been proud and public of his support of Garrett in the past.

“It certainly is an important ballgame for us,” Garrett said. “We understood the situation we’re in.”

“Ultimately Playing for division titles in the final game of the season isn’t new for the Cowboys. They lost to the Giants in 2011 and Washington last season in that scenario. An ESPN report alleged that there was tension between Romo and Garrett after the head coach indicated after the Packers’ loss that Romo should’ve stayed with the run call. Garrett has failed to lead the Cowboys to the seasonal playoffs since taking over head coaching duties back in 2010."

Should the Dallas Cowboys fire the coach and his staff if the team fails to make it to the playoffs once again this year?
