Fans are craving to see more emotion out of head coach Jason Garrett. The red-head is just too subdued along the Cowboys’ sideline. His demeanor is that of a puppet, Jerry Jones’ puppet.
Lack of emotion served Tom Landry well, but this is a new age and Jason Garrett does not have the clout that Landry possessed.
We have all seen Jason greet the media with his usual “How you doing, guys.” That is about as much emotion as Garrett displays on the sidelines.
There never seems to be an emergency where he calls a time-out to scold or refocus his team, we can remember the games where the defense was taking a beating and Jason just stood there in silence and had few words for this team. Time-outs are there for using, there is no reward for having time-outs left at the end of a half.
Fans have been hoping to see the red-head get more involved when there is a bad call. Fans think he needs to yell at his players when they are not performing up to standards. It is also thought that he needs to be in the ear of the game officials.
This is the type of coach that Jerry Jones has drooled over. Jerry can have his way, get his acclaimed publicity and still has a scapegoat when things go awry.
This will keep Jason with job security, but will not help in the win and loss columns.
All we ask for as fans is to have the coach run the team, to get involved on the sidelines and to be a bit more vocal. Jerry can afford to hire another new head coach. Jason cannot afford another 8-8 season or his job will be in jeopardy. Lack of emotion will not save his job if the Cowboys do not improve their record this season.
