Still no news on the Jason Garrett front

Is no news good news? Or is no news bad news?

The Cowboys’ disappointing season ended three days ago, in the last decade. They still apparently don’t have a resolution on their coaching situation.

Jason Garrett’s contract expires Jan. 14. The Cowboys are not expected to give him a new one.

But. . .

They have made no announcement after meetings between Garrett and ownership on Monday and Tuesday.

David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports Wednesday that the sides will not meet today to discuss his fate. Discussions will resume Thursday.

Garrett went 85-67 in 9 1/2 seasons, making the postseason three times and winning two playoff games.

  1. He has a .625 winning percentage over the last 4 years, that’s top 10 in the NFL. And that was with a 4th round rookie QB and a meddling owner. There are a LOT of teams that would take that.

  2. Very weird. What is there to talk about? As a Giants fan, I very much hope Jerruh keeps him because (a) He hasn’t won with all the talent they have so far, so probably won’t in the future and (b) I am afraid the Giants love of all things ex-Giants will lead them to hire Garrett if he is let go. Please NO!

  3. Jerry’s probably trying to figure out who they might get to replace Garrett before he pulls the trigger.

    Nobody with a strong NFL track record will take the job because they know Jerry will call all the shots and there are better openings. So, he’s got to decide which unproven guy might be an upgrade.

  4. Maybe they are negotiating a new role for Garrett within the organization. That would keep him in the family, and still let the team move on to a fresh approach.

  5. Mr. ” I can win a Super Bowl with any one of 100 coaches ” has to keep some of the spotlight on himself since his team is watching the playoffs on TV AGAIN !!!

  6. I’ve said it before. The Jones have nothing to say and taking too long to say it. Garrett is going nowhere. Who else would put up with Jerrah and his nonsense?

  7. If the coach they want isn’t available, what’s the rush? If Garrett and Jones don’t agree on the terms of a new deal (which each could have a reason to delay an agreement) there is no rush.

  8. Analysis paralysis.

    If Jerry fires him, they will be behind all the other teams looking for a coach.

    If Jerry keeps him, the fans will be mad and you’ll have another year of good but not great football

    This is now a loose-loose situation

  9. Strictly a guess on my part, but I think Jerry Jones knows, has known, who he wants to hire to replace Garrett. However, I think he’s negotiating the terms of a new contract with whomever is that choice and when he has a deal in place with him, then he’ll fire Garrett. Of course, he’ll have to go through the sham of an interview process first.

  10. I have an 8 year old chihuahua who could probably take over the head coaching duties and a 7 year old cat who would definitely teach the defense about some attitude as a defensive coordinator.

  11. He’s definitely negotiating a new contract, things like this generally take a week or so. By Friday or maybe Monday, Jerrah will announce the new deal for Garrett

  12. Lol that’s because there is no Jason Garrett news and probably won’t be. We’ve moved on

  13. I agree they are working on a way he stays with organization in some advisory capacity. The fans and the talking heads would be running around with their hair on fire if he got a new contract….

  14. Knowing Dallas, there’s a mystery candidate. May not even be one reported. Like it or not, they can probably circle back to Garrett or Richard if their 2020 Jimmy Johnson falls thru.

  15. For all you Giants/Eagles/Skins fans, Garrett and the Cowboys have owned all of you the last 10 years. Love how you keep saying, “please Jerrah, keep the clapper” but the reality is Garrett is 11-9 against the Iggles, 13-7 against the Giants and 14-6 against the Skins since 2010! I’ll admit that Garrett certainly can’t get the Cowboys to the next level but if ya’ll still want to be owned by the boys during the regular season keep running your mouths/fingers by praying he stays.

  16. Here is classic Jerry Jones……’Jason…you are under contract til Jan 14th, let’s keep open conversations going, I think there might be a future still’. January 15th, all head coaching positions have been filled. ‘Jason, I can get you a play by play job with ESPN in an hour..I take care of my people.’

  17. I watched this man, with no with no mercy humiliate Tom Landry, who for those of you who can remember,was the true origin of the rebuild that eventually brought the Jimmy Johnson championship years.both Aikmin and Walker were Landry picks, and this man was treated like garbage.There is no soft spot in Jerry’s heart.So why the hell is Garrett not out the door?

  18. All these theories about Jerruh having a “strategy” that explains the way this is being handled make no sense – unless he is coming back as head coach. Too easy to clarify if he isn’t coming back. The Giants may want to hire him? If you’re Dallas and you’re afraid of that, then you better keep him. Not a fan so I generally don’t pay much attention to them, but this clown show is amazing to watch. Seems pretty simple, if you feel the need to make a change, have the guts to do it.

  19. Someone hinted at it above, could Dallas sit on Garrett until the 14th, potentially seeking compensation or flat out deny permission to interview him…just a question.

  20. Waiting means? There can only be one advantage to this ongoing delay……”negotiations going slowly on a new contract.”

  21. The Eagles are hosting a playoff game this year with a team that is far less talented than the Cowboys. Doug Pederson has won 4 playoff games in the past 2 years (including a Super Bowl) compared to 2 first-round playoff wins in “10 YEARS” by Garret! What more do you need to see? If you’re content on having a winning a record and being better than the Giants and Redskin, by all means…keep Garret!

  22. Jerry has had no trouble firing coaches or giving Garrett extensions in the past. I can’t help but think Jerry’s offered Jason an administrative job. He’s given Jason a few days to think it over. My best guess. Jerry has some glaring faults but he didn’t make the Cowboys the highest valued sports organization by being an idiot.

    “both Aikmin and Walker were Landry picks”

    Wrong on Aikman… I think you meant to say Irvin. Johnson drafted Aikman.

  24. You know whos REALLY getting the short end of those stick? Garrett… he could be out interviewing for jobs and doing all these other things…. but no Washington all ready got their guy…. NYG and Cleveland may have there guys before long….

    Idk if Jones thinks he is doing Garrett a favor by keeping this hush hush… but unless he is keeping him … he isn’t.

  25. Just promote Garrett to GM. He will be the medium through which Jerruh leads the team, and people will quit insisting he hire a GM. As a Giants fan, I’m all for Garrett keeping his gig, but this would be the next best thing.

  26. So you accept being 7-8, 8-8 every year? Typical cowboys loser spin.

  27. cowboys wont win anything of value as long as jerry jones is directly involved in opertions

  28. Yes Garrett is a problem, but who is the one constant trough 20+ years of mediocrity ??? Jones is. Love him as an owner, but he has been responsible for a lot of bad product on the field as a GM and moves like this are a perfect example of his mismanagement. Just fire him. Also why is Garrett not in a rush to start interviews with other teams for a new job ???? That is the real question. It’s one thing for jones not to fire him and another for Garrett to look like he is staying. Why no rush from Garrett ?? BE AFRAID COWBOYS FANS BE VERY AFRAID

  29. I wish Garrett would man up and tell Jones to screw it, I am going to test the market!! This is baloney hanging on like this.

  30. Not a Cowboys fan.
    These posters who say the team is talented but the GM sucks confuses me.
    Either the team is talented and has built a solid roster through draft picks, signings and trades which speaks to a good GM.
    In this scenario the coach is doing a poor job of utilizing his talent and needs to be released.
    Or the team is overhyped, not very talented and has a meddling GM.
    The coach is coaching to his teams talent level.
    It can’t be both ways. Quit listening to talking heads or regurgitating sound bites.

    One day into the new year and we’ve got the most ridiculous comment of the year!! If Dallas was so dominate, how is it they never won the NFC east in back to back seasons?
