Jason Garrett: Less Hat; More Power

   Off to the Cowboys' Annual Kick-Off Luncheon at AT&T Stadium today where - I can almost guarantee - there will be no twerking or rump shaking or booty poppin' or ... hats.
   It's indoors. It's formal. And it's becoming normal these days to see Jason Garrett without headwear.
   In Texas, the old saying to identify a fraud goes “Big hat; No cattle.”
   At Valley Ranch, the new slogan to validate a leader is “No hat; More command.”
   In case you haven’t noticed, Garrett this preseason has stopped wearing his trademark topper – hat or visor – on the sideline. But, if you were paying attention last Saturday night at AT&T Stadium, he’s wielding more control than ever.

  1. You're a fool if you think Garrett has any more "power" than he has ever had. Jara is running this bitch and will until he passes on to the nest plane. Whatever little dog and pony show Garrett is putting on is all well and good but that all it is..... dogs and ponies my friend dogs and ponies.

    1. It must be fun to ignore all realities or facts while forming opinions

  2. Equating the power of Jimmy cutting a guy for fumbling to Red sitting a guy a few plays is a far reach. Jerry holds all the power on this team and in this organization and everyone knows it.

    2. True. However most delegate far more than Jerry, especially things like personnel/GM duties. Every owner in the league except Jerry would have fired GM Jerry three times over by now.

  3. Don't really think he is equating the power of jimmy Johnson to Garrett. Simply, it is nice someone has taken some kind if control. Been a while since we have seen that

  4. Disagree somewhat with these comments. Jerry controls this team. Yes. Personnel, trades, etc., but he's not the cat on the field running the show during game time. He's not on the phone telling Garrett "run this play" or "put so and so in". That's Garrett and his staff. And Garrett is in charge. I like the new Garrett. Will it translate to the field and the W column? Who knows. This team has shown time and again they're football stupid. Time will tell....

    1. Are you sure Jerry isn't on the phone to Garrett during games? I'd like to think not, but I put nothing past that dilweed. Remember it was Jerry who walked down to the sideline early in a game a couple of years ago and told Jason to get Romo out of the game since winning or losing wouldn't have any bearing on playoff position.

  5. I've been one to say since the beginning that Garrett, while maybe not quite yet, will at some point be a top notch NFL coach. He's young, energetic, very driven, extremely intelligent, has a high football IQ and I think handles the players with a good combination of respect and authority.

    The problem Garrett has is a coach is only as good (or maybe slightly better in some cases) than the product he is handed by the general manager. And of course we've seen the groceries that the GM has bought over the last decade and a half. And while there have been a few gems, by and large, it has been a complete failure, especially in the inner workings of the roster, i.e., the offensive and defensive lines.

    The second problem Garrett has is that everyone knows he's not in charge, including the players. While Garrett may eventually be a highly successful coach in the NFL, I really doubt that it will be in Dallas as that's really not possible for any coach as long as the current GM, who's been a dismal failure for 15 years, is calling the shots.

  6. Good Article. I think, though no one will admit it, stripping Garrett of play calling, getting his brother out of town and firing his Defensive coach choice are ultimately going to be the best things that happened to Garrett. The GM may do plenty of things to make you scratch your head, but he's done a pretty damn good job this off season.
