    If it was truly about his ability, it could have been done much sooner.
    They were too busy planning and taking their vacation.

    I think they were on the fence until the Hurns signing. That was a player who it was not obvious would be available before free agency. Still, they waited too long and did him ugly cutting him like that. Can you picture Dez trying to convince a powerless Skeletor he should stay while the paperwork’s already signed? Ouch.

    And it's not just Dez, they're like that with all the star players at the very least.

    Look at the sequence when Zeke overslept and was late. Gary Brown was basically like, "that's all right zeke. You tired? I'll lighten your load today."

    I don't get a strong sense that the coaches are in charge.
    Doesn't it remind you of the back-end of the Switzer years?

    You can insert that 20-year old Aikman sound bite of him blowing up about the state of the Cowboys and it would fit in perfectly with today's group.

    I tried to link to that YouTube video as well but they've blocked it from being embedded on outside websites.

    But yeah....that Aikman rant would be spot on with Garrett's coaching staff as well.

    You can leave it embedded and people can just click on "view this video on Youtube".

    Heartbreaking. So many feels.

    I'd personally pack Garrett's bags if you could show me another Jimmy Johnson.

    I will never really "forgive" (and I put that in quotes because at the end of the day, it's just entertainment), the organization for how they handled the whole thing.

    Yes, Jimmy may have wanted out personally. He may have wanted out even if Jerry bent over backwards for him. But maybe you also convince him to stay another year or two. Drive a Brinx truck full of money up to his house, give him a blank check.

    And if he still leaves, or if he leaves a year or two later, then I still can't forgive Jerry for how badly he botched the next coach. We really wasted the remaining prime of three All Time players under Switzer. We really did.

    I just cringe to think about, if we had a tight ship and a good coach, there is no out of control team. Sure, they are still partying like they did under Jimmy, but he keeps it under control. Maybe Irvin still gets suspended, but Jimmy would have reigned it in with the other guys. Jimmy would have found Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison and Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor to add to our defense as guys like Haley, Norton, Brown, Everett, etc.

    We probably would have drafted Randy Moss in 1998.

    Ugh.

    Can you imagine adding Thomas, Taylor, Madison, and Moss to the late 90's Cowboys? Might have been a LOT different.

    You will never get rid of Garrett if you are worried about getting worse. Whats worse? Staying put with this or taking a chance with the unknown. I can't say for sure but I'm pretty sure everybody was panning the Pederson hire. I dont need a couple more years of the same disappointment to know its time to move on regardless.

    There's no need to have that entire argument again.

    Just saying, it's too bad.

    Jeez poor Aikman. He's so mad he's about to cry. That is some frustration.
