  • Next Head Coach?

    I like Shannahan.....What does everyone else think? Garrett is out of the question in my mind. He has underacheived since Sparano left.

    I like Shanahan.

    I read a couple of interesting suggestions elsewhere yesterday.

    What's everyone's thought on these two?

    Ron Rivera

    Russ Grimm

      I wouldn't be upset with Jerry going with Garrett. Bloggingtheboys has a pretty good article on this very subject, talking about Sparano, Haley, & Payton. While a lot of the articles over there are fluff and completely homer'ish. I think Garrett is a smart man, and coaching takes experience and time to be successful. I also don't see him in the same light that a few of you do as a OC, could he use a "mentor", or a veteran OC, sure...but otherwise I think he can be a pretty good HC. I'm not sold on Shanahan or Gruden, and like someone else said, I don't want to see another young coach use the talent as guinea pigs while he learns at his first stop. We missed on Singletary, I don't see anyone else who could come in here and make a big change.

      What are people's thoughts on Jeff Fisher?

        I would love to have Fisher. However, I think they've been playing really well so it's not looking like Adams will get rid of him. But, I don't think Bud Adams is very bright so he might just haul off and can him.

        I think JJ would be all over Fisher if he were available. They worked together on the competition committee years ago and I think they both have a lot of respect for each other.

        I understand your comment about a young coordinator, but I don't think guys like Rivera or Russ Grimm would be a huge risk because, with their playing experience, they've been in the league for many many years.

        I just think, whoever it is, needs to be someone that holds them accountable and really makes them focus on the details. It doesn't necessarily need to be an ahole like Parcells, but he needs to be a guy that keeps a bug up everyone's butt all the time. I've actually read that discription of Shanny. Probably why it was time for him to go after 14 years in Denver.

            Got to agree with mac, Fisher or nobody else. That's probably Jerry Jones' thinking too.

            And I rather have an in-house HC like Garrett with all his faults over Shanahan too, b/c I think Shanahan is overrated. He rode that famous Al Davis firing after only 3-4 games for all it was worth in Denver (a town & an NFL owner that hates all things Davis), his signature schemes in Denver like zone blocking, RB by committee etc. just wore out & he didnt innovate when the rest of league had figured out how to beat them, & Denver went from annual playoff contender to mediocre at best. That & the fact that I ******* hate Denver orange & don't want to get any of it on my team.

            Shanahan's over & done with, a has-been, Dallas could do a lot better for another HC.

              I don't know. I think you're being a bit harsh on Shanny. I don't think his downfall was coaching; it was personnel, which he will not have full control over here.

              He was a top 10 offense every single year up until Cutler got there, and that's with Brian Griese and Jake Plummer. And he sent both of those guys to the Pro Bowl.

              Shanny probably wouldn't be my first choice, but I think you're being a bit too hard on him.

                Bill Cowher or Dom Capers.

                  YOu know, D. I think Cowher is a bit overrated, but I would take him for sure.

                  We've been hearing for some time now the talking heads saying that a guy like Cowher would never work for a JJ. I'm not so sure about that. I think JJ is willing to allow the right coach liberties. And more importantly, is Cowher going to want to go to Carolina where he has to wait until they find a good QB? The thing that makes the Dallas job so attractive is Romo. I would think that all of these guys would see that Dallas is not that far off in talent and they have a top 10 QB. I know Carolina is close to his home, but man that could be a real mess there in Carolina in a year or two.

                  Same thing with Shanny to Wash. Who's he got there to QB? You think Shanny is pumped to work with Campbell?

                    I mentioned Shannahan as a candididate. I do like like him.....other coaches I like our:

                    Capers HC and Martz OC: Solves the DC and OC.

                    Gruden HC: He does have a track record of taking over a talent roster and getting something out of it. DC is a question?

                    Garrett is out of the question......too many poor game time decisions as a OC. Do you really think he can improve his decision making process during the game as a HC? The answer is NO!

                    Cowher will cost us alot!

                      I just vote for a change #1, it's obvious we need that.


                      #2 no Jerry puppets, most people should know by know that having a 'yes man' that basically lets Jerry run the team is not the answer and doesn't work.


                      If we can get outside the box for those 2 I'm all for it. I like Shanny primarily because of what I think he'd do for Romo, Cowher ehh, maybe. I don't think he's all he's cracked up to be, he retired while he was sought after, and for a long time supposedly couldn't win the big game. I wonder how people would view him had he retired before the super bowl run.


                      If we change things up I really don't care, just not Wade or Garrett and I'd be happy honestly.


                      And as far as Jeff Fisher, I did want him the most, but VY saved his job so he won't be available. I would of loved to have him prior though.

                        Someone please explain the Garrett hate. Despite hi overthinking himself time and time again, I think he's had the offense at what? top 5, top 3, despite a aging line and a erratic(in the past) Romo...Experience is one of the greatest teachers and he's going to take time to become a "great".


                        I don't trust Shanny drafting...I think Cowher's over the hill.

                          How hard is it to rack up yardage with the players we have, especially considering he passes as much as he does? Racking up yardage does not make you qualified to be a Head Coach.


                          There are numerous reasons Garrett should not be a HC, I don't even feel like going into it, but we would be a mess for another 3-4 years. Rest assured we'll rack up lots of yards and throw the ball plenty but hey, if those are all the requirements then Mike Martz would still be a HC somewhere.

                            I take it you're forgetting the '07 season.

                            Alas, don't mistake me as a Garrett homer, I'm not. I just see a lot of hyperbole when it comes to him. He has his warts, and tendancies, but so does every other coach in the league. Ask Philly fans how Reid is doing when they're losing, or a steeler fan how Tomlin has been this year. I think it's easier to win with Garrett(which is ultimately the goal right?) then it would be to bring in some overpaid HOF coach right now. Payton got trashed quite a bit in Dallas if i can recall, how's NO doing? Besides Fisher I don't see a established HC that can get Dallas over that hump without wasting away the talent already on the roster. Unless I'm missing someone, Shanny, Gruden, Cowher? No, no, and not possible. Holmgren maybe, but he's looking at Cleveland, and a entirely new offense.

                            Garrett w/ veteran OC/DC is win/win, IMO.

                              As scary as it sounds I think Garrett would be a good coach for dallas. However we would need strong experienced coordinators. Dan Reeves as OC? What ties do we have for DC...Campo seems like a likely choice but I don't like the fit. I wish we would figured out a way to get Capers here but no stewart had to mess that up.
