Why not make Jason Garrett head coach in Dallas?

Jerry Jones talks a big game when it comes to Jason Garrett, but will he pull the trigger?

Sources are reporting that the Baltimore Ravens have offered Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett their head coaching position. Garrett has yet to make a decision, but it is said that he is 60-40 in favor of taking the job.

Now I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan and felt that Wade Phillips was never the long term answer for head coach; Wade only signed a three year deal in Dallas. To be honest I wish that they would have just hired Garrett as head coach last year. Wade did a great job in his first season, but I have never liked his style. There was a reason the Bills fired him even though he had a winning record with them. That being said, it is time for the Cowboys to get rid of Wade and hire Garrett.

How do you fire a guy who goes 13-3 in his first season? Well San Diego fired Marty after a shocking playoff loss and the Chargers went 14-2 last year. I think Jerry Jones needs to fire Wade after this disappointing end to a otherwise great season. Wade is now 0-4 in the playoffs, just getting to the playoffs will not cut it in Dallas. It seems like everyone you talk to is high on Jason Garretts' NFL knowledge and feel that he will make a good coach.

A source close to the Cowboys said that Jerry Jones has communicated to Garrett that he would match the offer made by the Ravens. Money aside, Baltimore offered him a head coaching position....can you match that offer Jerry?
