Was Jason Garrett judged unfairly in Dallas?
If Jason Garrett was still the coach of the Cowboys, does the team win today?
The Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, fired Jason Garrett for underachieving in 10 years in Dallas. Garrett took a lot of heat for many years for not getting the job done despite having a stellar roster on paper.
However, when the Cowboys were trailing 20-0 at one point to the Atlanta Falcons, it’s possible that the fans realized that they might have been too hard on Garrett. In just two games with Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys have underperformed.
Garrett is now the offensive coordinator for the New York Giants but his new team is 0-2 after falling to the Chicago Bears. The team is going to be in a flux now that Saquon Barkley could be lost to the season due to a torn ACL.
However, the Cowboys are 1-1 thanks to the magical comeback. Garrett was 85-67 in nine and a half seasons. He won three division titles and two playoff games. It’s unknown if the Cowboys would have won if Garrett was still the coach, but the most important news is that the Cowboys are not 0-2.
As for the game, a lot of that had to do with Dak Prescott. If it was up to NFL insider David Helman, the Cowboys need to pay Dak immediately.
“When you’re done celebrating the win, make sure to get on Facebook and tell your uncle that Dak Prescott brought the Cowboys back from a 20-point deficit by accounting for 468 total yards and 4 touchdowns, leading the Cowboys to 3 fourth quarter scoring drives in the process.”
The Cowboys moved to 1-1 on the season and will play the Seattle Seahawks next week.
