    His philosophical approach is part of our problem.

    We have blown two games in a row where we had a lead and you would think a commanding control of the football game.

    That said, the defense is the real problem here. We feel we have to jump to a lead and just hang on for dear life.

    Well, we have tried that twice and can't compete.
    A lot of the problem is that the players let up and that’s because they don’t get the foot on the throat mentality from the coaching staff. The don’t let up attitude is hard to overcome if it isn’t ingrained in the team. Coaches like what Dallas has get a lead then adjust the game plan to coast and protect a lead. It’s a guaranteed formula for allowing a team back in the game.

    Cowboys 90s championship teams passed early and ground teams to dust late with dominant OL and RB.

    They stuck with and trusted Emmitt.

    Why they don't trust Zeke is beyond me

    precisely what Garrett is attempting, and it worked for those SB 90's teams because they had great defenses to hold leads and further to produce SACKS and TURNOVERS. Dave Wannstedt and Butch Davis could coach circles around Marinelli.

    It does appear to be part of it; though I've also heard people complain about Garrett because, hey, the 90's Cowboys use to just play to their strengths! Smash mouth football! Garrett gets too cute!

    It's pick your complaint of the day, with him.

    IMO, as I said in another thread, a huge problem is his insistence on receiving the opening kickoff (though GB was the team that chose to defer on Sunday). We need the halftime kickoff. Teams often start slow against our defense then pick it up later in the game. We need to take advantage of that by controlling possession after halftime. With the way the defense is now, teams are owning the third quarter. If he can't see that this is killing us, he's blind. We need the ball to start the second half.

    We have blown two games in a row where we had a lead and you would think a commanding control of the football game.

    Yup.

    The offense isn't hitting on all cylinders right now, but it scored 31 points two games in a row. It's doing more than enough.

    The defense is a trainwreck. Garrett has to insist on changes or this team will miss the playoffs. He's not the defensive coach but he is the head coach so it falls on him to get it fixed.

    I do think getting healthy will help. Awuzie and Lewis are only going to get better as the season goes on, Woods too.

    Getting Lee back on the field and Jaylon Smith off the field will be big too.

    But the DL has to be miles better against the run for us to have a chance.

    And they can't sack the QB 2-3 times in the first half and then disappear completely in the second half.

    My biggest problem with the DL against GB was they let Rodgers escape way too much. That 18 yard run on their game winning drive was brutal. Basically lost the game for us.

    I hope Terrence Williams and Jaylon Smith take a knee during the anthem against the Niners.

    This coaching staff needs to stop coddling players and start holding them responsible for their poor play. Terrence Williams has killed us in back to back weeks with his drops.

    The play calling on the last drive is getting most of the discussion but Williams should be getting just as many darts thrown at him for that drop that resulted in a pick six.

    Quite frankly he shouldn't be starting next week. Brice Butler should get those starter's reps opposite of Dez Bryant. Hell, I'd even consider activating Noah Brown and not dressing Williams against the 49ers.

    If Williams is still allowed to start going forward the little respect I have for this coaching staff will be flushed down the toilet.
