Terrell Owens doesn’t understand why Cowboys haven’t fired Jason Garrett
Jason Garrett has been the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys since 2010, and in that time, they’ve failed to live up to their lofty expectations. Over that span, America’s Team has only made the playoffs twice, and have only one win to show from their time there.
For most coaches, those type of numbers will get you run out of town, but Jerry Jones has stuck by his man. Former Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens doesn’t understand why.
“I have no idea. You know what’s really tough? When you really look at it, it doesn’t make sense for Jason Garrett to continue to have his job. [The organization is] not really expanding or progressing even as a team under his coaching tenure there,” Owens said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think Jerry [Jones] — again he’s the owner at the end of the day, he has to feel good with himself about the decisions — but I just don’t understand why this guy [Garrett] still has a job.”
Owens also talked about his former coach, Andy Reid, who kicked him off the team when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles. Even though Reid and Owens didn’t get along, Ownes still has a lot of respect for him as a coach and thinks he is a lot better than Garrett.
This seems like a crucial year for Garrett in terms of his job security. If the Cowboys end up missing the playoffs the playoffs again, Jones is going to have to take another long look at Garrett and decide if he is still the right guy to lead the franchise.
