In case you've been living in a cave or don't live in the Dallas Metroplex, Jerry Jones fired ... oh what's his name ... oh yeah, Wade Phillips, and as of yesterday, named interim Head Coach Garrett as the New Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys! I'm not sure it was a shocker to anyone really that Garrett would be the head coach ... after all, he did a heck of a job with the last remaining games - going 5-3 and those 3 loses were by a total of 7 points! But a real shocker to everyone is what Jones said in the announcement (make sure you're sitting down for this one!): "Jason will have the final say on any person that leaves the coaching staff or comes to the coaching staff," Jones said. "There won't be a player on this team that Jason does not want on the team. ... That's the way we're going to operate." Excuse Me?!? Did he just say that Jason actually gets to make decisions that all other Head Coaches of other NFL teams do??? Woo Hoo! The Cowboys just might have a chance to dominate the NFL likethey did in the '90s with Jimmy Johnson & Barry Switzer!

If you can't tell, this lil' gal is a huge football fanatic! If you're not, no worries ... here's some insight into Jason Garrett that you can throw out at any party or conversation that will make you look like an uber football fan   :-)

  • Jason Garrett was a backup quarterback for Troy Aikmen back in the '90s & is the 1st Coach in Cowboy history to have also been a player!
  • In 2007, Garrett came back to the Cowboys as the Offensive Coordinator & later became the "Assistant Coach" after he showed his loyalty to Jones by turning down other Head Coaching positions
  • and, the most craziest is that ... Garrett has been with the Cowboys 20 out of the 22 years that Jones has been the owner!!!

Not sure about Garrett.....was hoping for Bill Cowher, but we'll see.  NOBODY will ever replace the man--Jimmy Johnson--"How Bout Them Cowboys".  lol

Sam - I did NOT know that last little tid bit. I remember him being Aikman's back up - and I guess that puts him 20 years back, but ---ah, what the heck...I guess I'm getting OLD. Nice formatting of the post, by the way. Scribefire?

I should note that although I'm personally a VIKING Fan (don't stone me) my hubby & son are all about "the boys". I used to be a cowboy fan back in the '90s w Johnson but left after all of the drug issues & ummm other socially unacceptable accusations :/  BUT over the past few years I'm starting to cheer for them again.  :) 

@ Jean - Bill would have been good but think he shyed away from Jones' iron fist of control. I think Garrett will be good ... he's already making great changes within the "boys".

@ Kim - Me either ... apparently he was away for just 2 years playing at, i think, Miami. I did use Scribefire. It's very user friendly & I put the pics up in AR itself & changed the size down to 100pix. Unfortunately it looks better on the actual AR site then in my outside :/
