I think I speak for all Dallas fans when I say, "Hallelujah." It's about time the Cowboys made it official and named Jason Garrett their full-time head coach.
I know they had to go through the process, interview candidates and satisfy the league's hiring rules. So they did. Then they did the right thing which was to hire a guy who took this team off life support and made it a factor the second half of the season. In short, they hired someone who made the Cowboys the team they were supposed to be. Not only were they 5-3 under Garrett, but their three losses were by a combined seven points.
That tells me something, and it tells me that Garrett was able to reach players where Wade Phillips was not. Garrett coached the same team Phillips did but gained dramatically different results. The players didn't change. The head coach did. But where Phillips was 1-7, Garrett was 5-3.
Works for me. Looks like Jerry Jones knew what he was doing when he paid Garrett all that money years ago to take him off the coaching market.
Good move, Jerry
