    Should Garrett be taking the bye weekend off and traveling to a World Series game?

    Sounds to me like he's a guy not at all worried about losing his job.

    I donít know what all the flak is about. Whether itís a World Series game or a stroll in the park itís a recreational outing. I donít see the problem some seem to have discovered.

    When a coach's record is 69 - 57 with one playoff win in 9 years, that's a problem.

    When you're 3 - 4 and getting paid $6 million a year, and you're so tone-deaf that you don't get the fact that it's bad optics to be seen "recreating," that's a problem.

    I'm guessing Romo and Wittens trip to Cabo was ok, too?

    It really doesnt bother me that much because even if he was there he wouldnt be able to figure out what to do regardless.

    Doesn't bother me. Everybody has to get away and unwind and clear their mind.
    No one was upset about it until Jimmy called him out on it, and I do see his point. But we all have to relax and catch our breath.

    I see the perception part of it being bad and gives everyone something to bitch about. That being said, I doubt it has much impact on the team being prepared. In the whole time he's been here, I can rarely think of a time where they looked prepared regardless of what he did. So I'm sure they'll come off the bye looking as flat as always and that likely wasn't going to change even if he was game planning 24/7.

    You're right in the sense that preparedness has nothing to do with it. It's more to do with the message it sends to fans and players. I'm flyin' out to LA to catch the series and chill with my bud Brad Paisley, like I'm some kind of fuckin' celebrity sittin' on top of the world.

    Yeah, everyone should be in the lab figuring out the shitty offensive production.

    Flying to catch the game takes up most of a whole day. Itís unfair but it looks like Garrett isnít concerned about getting the Cowboys ready for their next game.

    Behind the scenes heíd normally be using the bye to get ready for the short week vs. Washington, but since they literally just did that it freed up some time.

    Sounds like a coach with job security.

    So they have this really piss-weak offense, thanks in part to Garrett's piss-weak scheme and Linehan's piss-weak play calling. They bring in a (former) hot-shit WR to juice up the offense, now I read the next practice is Wednesday.

    Would you imagine they take a couple extra days to work on some new things? New wrinkles? Just asking.
