Washington, DC (CTZNSIX) –
This past Thanksgiving, the Dallas Cowboys faced a devastating 26-15 lost to the Buffalo Bills. Dallas is now 0-6 against teams with winning records, yet they continue to stick with head coach, Jason Garrett.
Since his promotion from Offensive Coordinator to Head Coach in 2010, he has led Dallas to 5 postseason trips. He’s never made it past the 2nd round of the playoffs. Garrett’s best season came in 2016, when he led Dallas to a 13-3 record, but lost in the divisional round to the Green Bay Packers.
With Ezekiel Elliott’s contract signing, Cowboys fans anticipated this year to be a good one. 13 weeks into the 100th season and Dallas is first in a weak NFC East division, but can’t seem to find an answer for teams they may face in the postseason.
Its clear there’s frustration between the players and coach Garrett.
The Cowboys are hoping to snap their 2 game skid when they face the 6-6 Bears on Thursday. Garrett has an opportunity to redeem several bad seasons, but if he continues to lose, his job may be in jeopardy.
Jones Protects Garrett But Cowboys Need To Win
According to Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones, his job is safe. However, if Jones wishes to add another Lombardi Trophy to his collection, a decision must be made. With 4 games remaining, Dallas can still finish 10-6. That road won’t be easy.
After the Bears, they face the Rams in Los Angeles who is also .500 on the season. Their final two games are against Philadelphia & Washington, both teams who Dallas defeated earlier in the season. If Dallas finishes the season on a 4 game win streak, they will make it to the playoffs for a 6th time under Coach Garrett.
Statistically & historically speaking, if Garrett is unable to make it to the conference championship game, he needs to be relived of his duties.
