    No. He is a horrible coach.

    And I seriously doubt even a really bad result like 5-11 or below gets Garrett fired. This "hotseat" stuff is a myth. Or, wishful thinking.

      Haven't been to the NFC title game since 1995, 23 years, one of only three NFC teams to share that humiliation. As of 2017, Garrett was the HC for 9.5 of those years. 2018 would make it 11, which would be 47% of the time encompassing that dismal failure.

      Garrett was named OC in 2007. So for 13 of the 23 years Dallas has not made the NFC title game, Garrett has been an instrumental part of the team, OC or HC, 57% of the time.

      Hot seat? How does this guy even still have a job?

        One and done preserves Garrett’s job.

        I loved when the Chargers fired Marty S. after a 14-2 season when he went one and done.

        We’ve nowhere near that kind of clued-in and gutsy front office.

          That clued in and gutsy front office is laughed at ON THIS BOARD for being the Cowboys of the AFC. What exactly have they ever won with all those clues and guts you love so much?

            Garrett's hot seat is only as warm as the front office wants it to be.

              It was the right decision regardless of their relative lack of success since. Marty and Wade lost control of their players and got beat at home by an inferior team.

              This is team is going to keep Garrett no matter what. They say they want to win, but their actions say otherwise. They are liars. Liars to their fan base and also to themselves.

                I thought it was a stupid decision.

                    Marty’s football career since says it was on point.

                            I don't think it does unless you know for sure that he just didn't want to retire. I mean he could have thought it was jist as well and decided to not coach.

                              I don't remember all the details surrounding Marty's firing, but it wouldn't surprise me if his reputation of always coming up short in the playoffs played a role. Especially considering that Chargers team was built to win it all. In hindsight, I don't think it was the right move.

                              That said, Garrett isn't even in the same stratosphere as a coaching talent like Marty.

                              The Marvin Lewis comparison remains the most accurate. Maybe Norv Turner.

                                It's impossible to know how his career had gone if he hadn't retired. Firing a coach after a 14-2 season was short-sighted at best.
