    Cowboys can't even fire a coach correctly. What a laughing stock of a front office. Either he is gone or not but now 2 days J Jones has met with him and Garrett is still officially the coach.

    Couldn't happen to a better team.

    Probably means Jerry not getting interest in the job. Won't can Garrett until he's got the successor in hand. With all the openings the boys might have to settle for plan b,c or whatever

    Could very well be what ends up happening. Guys with suits and briefcases negotiating

    If this happens makes it even more comical. JJ and the men in suits and briefcases negotiating all while another franchise who ownership is as dysfunctional as it gets in the Redskins I think hired the best available coach.

    Would you want to work for Jones? Would take close to double what you could make anywhere else.

    I would work for JJ before going to Cleveland. Dallas at least has some structure to the organization.

    Skins hired Jack Del Rio as DC. Solid choices for the Skins

    Riviera and Del Rio should make for a strong combination in DC. That said, Dan Snyder will probably screw it up again somehow. Does Bill Callahan stay on as OL coach?

    Here's to the 'Skins somehow continuing to wallow between mediocrity and ineptitude.

    Probably. Dan Snyder is the worst owner in football.

    Probably worse than Jerruh Jones. Glad both are in the NFC East.

    My guess is Garrett and Jerry trying to find spot inside organization. Potential new coach said no way.

    Jerrah literally can't hire or fire a coach right.

    Hmmmmm, so with Rogers in his prime he couldn't design an offense that could score, and I'm to believe it's going to be different with Dak? In today's NFL you're going to have to be able to win a shootout several times a year, I don't see McCarthy as the guy to do that, BUT, it's a solid and safe hire.

    Well he's a better hire than Marvin Lewis who JJ also interviewed. JJ just wanted another safe yes man. And had no splash hires in his pocket.

    Jerruh is running out of time, and did not want to wait several years for some up-and-coming coach to get situated. He wants to win now, and McCarthy gives him a solid HC who might be able to put the pieces together. He did it before in GB.

    That said, I hope it's a rocky relationship and they squabble and squander Dallas into the ground.

    Go Birds.

    I know it falls under the "what else would he say?" warning, but I've read some interviews where it sounds like McCarthy has spent a lot of time studying and thinking about why his offense stagnated and how to incorporate some new ideas from the league. I hope I'm wrong because I'm not a Cowboys fan but I think he'll have some success there. He seems like a smart guy willing to consider all philosophies.

    My guess is the Cowboys were waiting on the Minnesota game to see what happened with Zimmer. Some were saying he could be out if they had a first round exit. He's obviously not going anywhere now.

    Why fire someone when their contract expires in a week?

    If he's smart he'll hire an innovative OC who can use Dak's mobility then get out of his way and let him do his job.

    Well, that's not going to happen. All he cares about is offense. He'll be calling his own plays and if that's not what Jerry wanted he hired the wrong guy.

    “When the organization was unwilling to come out publicly and say we’re seeking a new coach, and yet at the same time reports are coming out that they’re interviewing potential new candidates for the head coaching position, it’s disappointing. In a lot of ways, it shines a light on some of the dysfunction within the organization and kind of how they got to the point they are at now.” https://www.yahoo.com/sports/troy-a...ing-of-jason-garrett-situation-145556724.html

    Urban Meyer was probably a bit of a pipe dream. Out of all of the other re-treads, McCarthy was probably the best pick.
