I may have said this before, in fact I know I have, but when will Jason Garrett run out of fall guys? This isn’t the first time this team has abandoned a successful running game. It isn’t the first time poor game management has cost the Cowboys a win. When will enough be enough? Jason Garrett reminds me of a sniveling little weasel. There were 30 minutes in the second half and the Cowboys returned to the field with a twenty three point lead! 23 points sports fans!
DeMarco Murray was averaging 7.4 yards per carry which is way above average by NFL standards. The brain trust decides to only call seven, yes 7 run plays in the entire second half! How does Jason Garrett address it? Almost immediately after stepping in front of the cameras, he comes out with, Tony Romo checked out of the run play that resulted in an interception. Are you kidding me? They only called seven in the entire half to begin with!
His next attempt at once again trying to pass his incompetence off on someone else is saying, yes Bill was calling the plays. Did this moron forget he already told the media all play calls by Bill Callahan would go through him before getting relayed to Tony Romo? Try again Opie.
It’s obvious the members of the media are finally seeing where the blame really lies. The next question addressed to Jason Garrett was: well how many were run plays when you were trying to burn clock. Jason Garrett choked up, put on his best political face and said,
” I don’t have that off the top of my head.”
Are you kidding me Jason Garrett? You are the head coach of a “Professional” football team and don’t know how many times you ran the ball? Give me a break! That Ivy League political brain was in self preservation mode and dodging the question or you’re dumber than a box of rocks. I say he stuck with plan A, throw Romo and Callahan under the bus! God forbid he ever admit a mistake, or shoulder some blame.
How stupid does he think we are? Some things never change! I have written at least 20 articles pointing out not only abandoning the run, but poor clock management, poor game management, and that this pass pass pass mentality inevitably leads to interceptions. Add to that constantly trying to force the ball down-field instead of attacking underneath with the short passing game. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH OPIE! Admit it, you’re in way over your head!
The fact of the matter is: Jason Garrett called 3 run plays and 15 pass plays in the 4th quarter. All Jason Garrett could come up with was, Tony Romo checked out of the run play? Oh, and Bill Callahan was calling the plays. You sniveling little weasel! You relayed every one of those plays to Tony Romo! What freaking head coach in his right mind calls 5 times as many pass plays as run plays when they have the lead in the 4th quarter?
You can blame Romo and Callahan all you want Jason Garrett, the fact of the matter is, you’re the heart of this teams short comings. I really wish I would have been at that press conference because my first questions would have been: why were Tony Romo and Jason Witten yelling at you on the sidelines? Why does Jason Witten walk right by you and not give a hand smack like the younger players do when they come off of the field?
I have a pretty good idea why: these guys are not only veteran players that played under a hall of fame head coach (Bill Parcells), but they have been starters for years and understand what needs to be done on the field. Jason Garrett on the other hand, spent his career carrying Troy Aikmans clip board. Enough said!
