Because he conned his way to being the head coach of this team for a decade and squandered the career years of our most talented players, thanks to his arrogance and stubbornness.

Fuck him. I resent his whole tenure. I can't say that about any other coach in our history.
Exactly.

It's bad enough that he wasted an entire decade of the franchise along with so many careers, it's the smugness in which he did it that makes it even worse.

Fuck him.

What’s the point in hating the guy? He gave it a try but he just didn’t have the killer instinct for the job. He’s gone and now there is another new day in the Teams history so look forward not backward.
Because he's the second longest tenured coach in team history despite failing to achieve anything.

He, along with Jerry, are living, breathing examples of why this team hasn't been to an NFCC in 25 years, with only the Redskins and Lions as contemporaries.

He squandered the careers of multiple HoF/RoH types with nothing but 2 playoff wins over 10 years to show for it and he will probably always be a hated figure amongst Cowboys fans.

That's what I really hated about him. Not having the talent or ability to be a good coach, that's not really on him. That's on Jerry for keeping him around so long.

But what is on him is that super smug and arrogant attitude. That constant rehearsed grin even at totally inappropriate times. The refusal to accept responsibility after huge gaffes that cost games.

And the local media get a huge assist for a decade of backing him based on nothing more than having Princeton on his resume and his "professional" manner at press conferences.

Dammit. Now I need to go run a couple of miles or something.

Well have a Merry Little Christmas with all the Garrett hate. It’s history and now I’m looking down the road forward hoping to see some improvement with the team and their performance. Spilled milk is hard to get back in the container. Here’s hoping the future is brighter than the past.

You guys sitting around consoling each other while whining about how the bad man hurt you is so cute.

Did I say cute?

I mean it makes you sound like fucking bitches.

I thought we were supposed to have a Garrett thread for this nonsense?

It will be.

McCarthy is a genuine upgrade and under normal circumstances (no Covid) I would expect us to go far into the playoffs this year.

Bitching about one of the primary reasons that a team has failed over the last 10+ years...on a message board dedicated to that team is kind of the reason these types of boards exist in the first place.

But yes, it should be in a contained thread, or more ideally we should just ignore him and any "news" related to him, although if someone wants to ask me why Garrett sucks I'm more than happy to oblige.

There are therapists what specialize in getting you to a better place both mentally and emotionally after such a traumatic experience.

I know the loss of Garrett still hurts to this day.

I wish you the best in your recovery.
