10:35 AM ET 12.22 | Source says current expectation is Jerry Jones will fire HC Jason Garrett and coaching staff unless the Cowboys win NFC East, make playoffs. I've been told that Jerry Jones doesn't want to fire Jason Garrett, prefers to be right about him as HC but needs to make playoffs.

Any HC candidates on your wish-list, Otis?

Doesn't matter.


Jerry will probably hire Gruden and underwhelm all of us.

Gruden a candidate for Dallas!

There. Now it's been said.

Should have realized I couldn't beat you to the punch.

If Jerry hasn't already talked to him, I would be stunned.

They have a 50 50 chance of winning out, but not sure that is necessarily a good thing for Cowboy fans. That means more Garrett, depends on how you feel about the guy I suppose. Sounds like lose lose to me.

December 22, 2013  10:53 AM ET

I'd hire Mike Zimmer. Period.

Would not be surprised to see the cowboys win the division and Garrett get fired anyways. A nasty loss in the playoffs is all the excuse he would need. Not that he ever needed a reason to do anything before.

Good chice. The guy has certainly earned the chance to coach his own team.

I seriously don't know why this guy hasn't been given a chance yet.

Here's "Jerry Logic"...

We made the playoffs. Therefore, Jason Garrett was obviously a great choice by the GM. Doesn't matter that <fill in the blank> beat us 50-17.


He made the comment the other day that the way the league is set up, a .500 team has a shot to win the Super Bowl. So - after 17 years of .500 football, this team can't even luck into playoff success?

Yes - I am a bit jaded.

I would have hired him in 2007 after Parcells left. Told anyone who would listen then.

I think he's going to make someone a damn good HC.
