    I agree. You know he cares. About winning, not just the paycheck.

      Jerry loves being a GM, but he has been supportive of wants that his coaches have had regarding player personnel.

      I think Jerry made the mistake of hiring Garrett, but not making him HC. You don't hire your OC before you hire your HC. This was a disaster in the making. He never really let Wade be a HC. In fact, he made him the DC. This team has been without a HC from the moment they fired Stewart as DC. How can you have a HC not involved in anything regarding the offense? It's a joke. It's amazing what we accomplished during Wade's tenure considering.

      This time, we need to hire a HC first and let him set up his own staff. That will be a HUGE part of getting back on track.

      There are a lot of good HC candidates out there, so we'll see what happens. A combination of Brian Billick as HC and Marvin Lewis as DC would excite me.

      • I was listening to either the Ticket or the Fan this morning (can't remember which, just know it wasn't the Ben & Skin guys on ESPN 103.3), and he gave a list of 10 guys who need to go off this team.

        Most of them are easy to agree with:
        -Alan Ball
        -Gerald Sensabaugh

        But he also had:
        Anthony Spencer, Felix Jones, Marion Barber, Mike Jenkins......

        He talked about guys mental makeup over physical so-called ability.
        He said Felix is dumb, has a low football IQ.

        And he ripped on Mike Jenkins big time. I thought I was the only one who immediately noticed him going Antonio Cromartie last night on the non-tackle on James Jones.

        What guys would you try and get rid of?
        Certainly Spencer and Felix would fetch some nice draft picks. I doubt anyone here would want to part with these guys though like the host on the radio suggested.

        I think your DBs and OL are all that needs to be seriously changed. I can't find another OL that run-blocks that badly, and those DBs are as bad as it gets in the NFL.

          When the chips are down and someone needs to step up... we have no one. The media doesn't even know who to put on the stand to question. Usually, you'll have a leader from the defense, who the media will question about what happened... Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher, Dwight Freeney, Jared Allen, Briant Dawkins (when he was w/the Eagles)... for us, the media doesn't even know who to talk to.

          I'll tell you who the 2 most natural leaders are on offense and defense... Tashard Choice and Sean Lee. Choice gets burried by the OC, when he should be starting. Lee can't see the field because even though Wade wants to play him, the vets refuse to get off the field and listen to him. LMAO. Mutiny in full effect.
          First thing you have said that I agree with in a while.

          Brooking tries allbeit but he just doesn't have the affect on the younger guys.

          Choice is a huge leader and for anyone that doesn't believe that look him up on Youtube: Pregame Speech and tell me that doesn't make you want him starting even more?

          As far as Lee; haven't seen anything exactly on that, but I would like to hear more in respect to his leadership qualities.

          Thanks to bonekrusher for the sig

            Both DE spots are below average. Both ILB spots are below average. You have 1 promising CB in Jenkins who is inconsistent, and no safeties.

            I think John Fox is your guy. He's the perfect mix for this team. Sure, he brings a 4-3 defense with him, but Fox is legit. I love the guy and was hoping he'd be a candidate to replace Coughlin when he retires.

            I personally hope Fox doesn't go to the Cowboys bc he's a Giant at heart, but I do admit it would be a great hire by Jerry if he did it.
            Sean Lee has the character and drive to make himself more than a JAG. I'm no where near giving up on him as a possible keeper for this team. In fact, I have huge excitement over him as possibly becoming that leader on defense that I've been talking about us not having.

            Our defense has a lot of holes, but I think if we had 2 new safeties, we could really start to see a big turn around on D. We need to find out about AOA now, I don't care about how raw he is. I would expect bad plays to come out of him, but if he can show flashes, then we know he's worth developing. Ball and Sensabaugh are just ridiculously bad.

                It's not that Brooking doesn't have an effect on the younger guys... I think it's the older guys that he doesn't have an effect on. You gotta look at the guys on the field. Outside of Jenkins, the young guys aren't out there.

                As for Choice... I've brought him up as the guy to start and have only been laughed at... and called crazy.

                  He may love being a GM, but I don't think he is a good one. I think if you guys had a real football guy as a GM, your franchise could do a lot better. But with Jerry, he has an ego, and he treats your team like a brand name. He is the center and the face of the franchise.

                  I do agree with you with the order of coaches being hired. It was weird how things went down. But that's why you let the new coach come in and hire everyone. The owner has to butt out. Since he is the GM, then do it the normal way of hiring. However, the Garrett Family is good friends with Jones. I know that first hand, so while the order of hiring makes no sense, it does in a way, because he hired people that have been close to him.

                  I don't see Brian B wanting to coach in Dallas and dealing with that circus. He has a nice cushy job working for NFL network. Would he want to lose job stability and enter the circus known as Jerry's world?

                          So you're saying the hiring doesn't make sense, but it does make sense. LOL. I know what you mean. Jerry's trust and relationship with the Garrett's was the mistake in the first place. They aren't a good NFL caliber coaching family.

                            With or without him... nothing changes. Nor do I want change. Losing suits me perfectly fine at this point. There's nothing to cheer for. I understand why the players play like there's nothing to play for.

                              Well it doesn't make sense from the norm of what usually happens. So from that standpoint no, but I do know, that old man Garrett is tight with Jones.

                              He scouted for him, Judd Garrett works in the personnel dept. and both, Jason and John are coaches for the staff. Jones basically did a personal favor and hooked up a family friend who has kids that are experienced. Normally you hire the coach, and then he hires the OC and DC and staff. But Jones hooked up his friend.

                              They do have talent, but I have no idea why he does some of the stuff. I know all the guys are cool guys. I coached with John Garrett and he is a cool guy. Maybe he will make a better coach?

                              Old man Garrett is the coolest guy. But i think those guys will always have a job because of the family name, and connections. That's what the NFL is about. Connections..

                              Let's not forget Gilbride was a Garrett early on Mr. Run and Shoot, who hates to run the ball. Now look at him.. Can you believe how, in general, our team runs very well? Remember this is Gilbride as our OC. So OCs can change, so don't discount that aspect. Mr. Run and Shoot, now actually is well balanced. I am no fan of Gilbride, but during his tenure here, he has done a Damn good job for us.

                                Jason Garrett may be good one day... but I knew from the start that we'd suffer because he was never an OC before and we'd have to live through his growing process as well. He'll most likely become the interim HC and then be dismissed at the end of the season.
