OK I am going to say it. When I am wrong, I am wrong. Tony Romo is a very good quarterback. At least in 2013.
What did I just say? Yea, I will say it again - Romo is a very good quarterback. Seems nuts, right? Romo - Who I usually say isn’t clutch enough, has been clutch, and has played well and the Cowboys should be at worse 6-2.
This season is like almost writing the same stories from two seasons ago when the season was on the line in Week #4, when they played the Detroit Lions, as they did today. Same result a “L” in the loss column. Two seasons ago, it was Romo wasn’t clutch enough, this season it is the defense except for Sean Lee was not out there with their game faces on.
Now Lee will take the full blame as he is the captain of this team, but the secondary of the Cowboys gave away two games. I am talking about the Broncos, and the Lions. The offense had been potent in these games scoring a total of 78 points in those two games alone. When you score 30 points you should win the game. Period.
Finger pointing time:
OK can we say it now? Rob Ryan was a complete and utter scapegoat, and the guys they brought in are not better than Ryan or Wade Phillips, for that matters.
Garrett is still here because he knows how to put on the chap stick correctly in order to kiss Jerry Jones’s behind. Hey there is something about that. Know what the boss wants right - and do it well. The puckering that goes on each and every week, can only go on for so long before he has to go. But all he has to do is ask Jerry "What flavor this week boss?"
Now me calling for Garrett’s head is nothing new for me, however after the break down on defense Bryant’s little tirade, and the Cowboys losing this game against the Lions, can we finally let the red head go? Please? I am begging. Fan are begging. The fact is, the lack of discipline comes the style of no discipline. This is one man’s fault, and that is Garrett period. And that is what he said he was going to build this team on, when he was named the head coach after firing Wade Phillips - discipline.
Head Case in point…
You can say what you want about Dez Bryant. How great he is. But until he gains control on the sidelines and his attitude the Cowboys will be having this problem all season long. Once he does it and gets away with it, it will keep coming. This is a clear cut lack of discipline, and respect of any of the coaches he lost on two that we actually saw, and a number of players, and he also defends it - WOW! Who is running the funny farm over there.
You can not allow a player like Bryant to lose it on coaches. In fact he should be fined by the team. Ohhh - but Jason Garrett, the leader of these non discipline players won’t do that. We wouldn’t want to hurt Bryant’s feeling now would we (patting him on the head and saying - Oh he is just a very passionate player)? This could be the reason alone they should fire Garrett, but they won’t because he is the best “yes man” the Cowboys have seen in years.
Injuries are going to happen and it is Garrett’s job to make sure the offense and defense are in sync even with injuries to vital players. 50% isn’t good enough. It is time to fire Jason Garrett right after he is in the parking lot after they land back in Dallas.
