Cowboys are expected to fire Jason Garrett after season barring ‘fairy tale ending’

Cowboys, Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett

The Dallas Cowboys came up short against a team with a winning record yet again this season. They lost 26-15 at the hands of the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving Day.

As one might expect, the topic of Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett on the hot seat only intensified. It has gone from what has felt like a weekly talking point to now a daily topic of discussion.

As David Moore of The Dallas Morning News wrote, it is ‘inevitable’ that Garrett is fired and it’s just a matter of ‘when’ it happens.

The Cowboys are broken. What comes next is inevitable.

The only question is when.

It won’t be this holiday weekend. It won’t be before the regular season is done, as Jones stated time and time again Thursday evening. But everyone knows where this is headed after a 26-15 Thanksgiving loss to Buffalo.

Does anyone other than the Cowboys owner believe in fairy tales when it comes to this team?

It’s important to note that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones noted that there is ‘zero chance’ that the team would win the Super Bowl if they were to fire Garrett during the season. That makes it safe to say that Garrett will be the coach for at least the remainder of the regular season.

“I wouldn’t make a change and give us a chance to do what I want to dream about doing,’’ Jones said. “I wouldn’t do that for love nor money. It would give us zero chance if we didn’t have him.

“I’m just not going to make a coaching change.’’

After having many chances to lead talented Cowboys teams over the years, it’s difficult to envision Garrett lasting much longer in his current position.
