Dallas Cowboys Promote Interim Coach Jason Garrett To Head Coach

Dallas SB Nation – The worst kept coaching carousel secret was made official today. Jerry Jones officially named Jason Garrett head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, removing the interim label from his title. Continue Reading…

Jason Garrett is the new Dallas Cowboys head coach.

The Dallas Cowboys have named Jason Garrett the Head Coach after he went 5-3 as an interim coach for the football team.

Jason Garrett was originally hired as an offensive coordinator for the Cowboys in 2007.

He was made the interim head coach after Wade Phillips was fired in the middle of the season for having a 1-7 record.

I have to say I knew this was coming. Wade Phillip did not set the bar very high and therefore it was easy for Garrett to impress Jerry Jones.

But I don’t see him as the long-term solution. We need a strong minded coach who demands respect.

Jason Garrett is a good student of the game who will always be prepared but he may be too young and inexperienced to garner the respect needed to win a Superbowl.

San Fransisco 49ers Fire Head Coach Mike Singletary

December 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Sports Illustrated – Mike Singletary was fired by the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night after two disappointing seasons, including a 5-10 showing this year for a franchise expected to win the NFC West.

The team made the announcement late Sunday upon returning to the Bay Area, several hours after San Francisco was eliminated from playoff contention with a 25-27 loss at St. Louis. Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula was promoted to interim coach and will run the team in next Sunday’s season finale at home against Arizona:  Continue Reading…

San Fransisco 49ers team president and CEO Jed York  fired head coach Mike Singletary today amid speculation that he may allow him to coach the 49er’s last game of the season.

Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula will serve as the interim coach for the San Fransisco 49ers.

Mike Singletary was 18-22 overall in a little over 2 seasons. He went 8-8 last year and finished 5-10 this year. He said “You know what, I’ll put it this way: a personal failure. I’m the head coach of this team and obviously wanted us to do better, felt that we could do better.”

Owner John York says he plans to hire a GM before he hires a new head coach.

Mike Singletary never looked right as the head coach of the 49ers. He always came off as a strict and unhappy coach.

Mike Singletary has finally been fired

This season was just too much. The St. Louis Rams are leading the NFC West division with a measly 7-8 record. With the talent the 49ers have, winning the division should have been like a walk in the park.

Professional athletes want to be able to relate to their coaches as man-to-man, not man-to-child.

Singletary will surely be better off taking a defensive coordinator coaching job somewhere else, or even in San Fransisco.

But one thing is for sure, Mike Singletary as head coach of the 49ers was never going to work out.

You could see that his players weren’t really responding.

Denver Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen Fires Head Coach Josh McDaniels

December 6, 2010 4 comments

Denver Post – In the end, there was too much controversy and not enough wins.

The combination led to the end of the brief but stormy head coaching stint of Josh McDaniels, who was fired Monday afternoon.

Josh McDaniels may not get another head coaching job in the NFL.

“From a personal standpoint, I’m disappointed because he was not only a head coach but a play caller,” said Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton. “I did really like him as a play caller. I think he’s a good coach. The players have to be held accountable, too. The way we’ve played is on us. You never want to see somebody fired.”  Continue Reading..

The Denver Broncos fired Josh McDaniels today, Dec. 6, 2010, after he brought the Broncos to a 3-9 record this year.

Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen dodged any speculation that this was because of the video tape incident, also known as Spygate II that occurred this year.

Where McDaniels  hired Steve Scharnecchia to video tape the San Fransisco 49ers’  walkthrough practice during week 8 in London.

I’m surprised Josh McDaniels was fired before Eric Mangini.

Bill Belichick thought Josh McDaniels was the assistant coach that was more prepared.

Maybe Belichick like McDaniels because he cheats like Bill Belichick or maybe because he is stubborn like Bill Belichick.

He did get rid of good quarterback in Jay Cutler.

Whatever it may be, the Denver Broncos have bigger problems than coaching.

Potential head coaches do not want  to go to a team with no quarterback, identity, or anything really unique for that matter.

 

Former Colorado University Football Coach Says Jon Embree Got The Head Coaching Job Over Him Because Jon Is Black

December 3, 2010 4 comments

DenverPost – Jon Embree has verbally accepted Colorado’s offer to become its next head football coach, according to Bill McCartney, the legendary ex-Buffs’ coach. Embree will hire former Buffs’ great Eric Bieniemy as his offensive coordinator, McCartney said.

“Embree’s going to be the head coach and Bieniemy’s going to be the offensive coordinator,” McCartney told The Denver Post today. “Take it to the bank and hang your hat on it.” Continue Reading…

Jon Embree will be the University of Colorado's head football coach.

Former Colorado Buffaloes head coach Bill McCartney was one of 3 candidates for the vacant head coaching position for the University of Colorado’s football team.

Washington Redskins tight end coach Jon Embree, an African-American, is the candidate who got the job.

And Bill McCartney had alot to say about it.

He said “It was never about me doing it again…It was about setting the table for a black man to come in (as head coach). And he (athletic director Mike Bohn) hired one. Now, give him a chance…he’s (Mike Bohn again) hiring outstanding black leaders.”

I understand Bill is trying to be supportive of blacks progressing in the football coaching industry. Blacks make up most of the players but there aren’t many black head coaches in football.

But his choice of words make him sound like a  racist and a typical bigot. After he realized he wasn’t going to be the head coach, Bill put the focus on the skin color of Jon Embree.

He could have talked about how good of a coach he will be or how much  of a leader he will be to the Colorado players. And maybe he did.

But even if he did, there is no excuse for him saying “it” was all about Jon Breeme being black. Jon Breeme will be hearing enough about how he is one of the first blacks to coach a well-respected college football team.

Is Bill McCartney an undercover racist?

Is Bill McCartney wrong for what he has said about Jon Breeme?

Brad Childress Fired – Is This Brett Favre’s Wrongdoing?

November 22, 2010 Leave a comment

FOX Sports – The Brad Childress Era in Minnesota is over. The team relieved the head coach of his duties Monday morning. Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will take over as the interim head coach. Continue Reading…

Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress was fired today after a 31-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday. He will be replaced by Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazer.

Brett Favre should take responsibility here. Yea, Childress took his team to a record of 3-7 and an inadequate team. But all he had to work with was a 41-year-old quarterback with 8 stitches on his chin and one ankle at half strength.

He has even been quoted saying “What in the world am I doing” at the end of the Patriots game where he needed the 8 stitches.

How can Zigi Wilf, the owner of the Minnesota Vikings, expect Brad Childress to win with a quarterback that doesn’t know if he wants to even play??

Brad Childress picking up Brett Favre at the airport. Little did he know.

Randy Moss made that infamous speech because he realized Brett Favre was a shell of himself. Brett Favre, of now, is a far cry from Tom Brady, the current MVP favorite.

Maybe Green Bay was actually smart in cutting ties with the future Hall of Famer.

I don’t know how Brett Favre does it. But he has a way of getting whatever he wants if he cries enough about it.

Brett Favre has completely fallen from grace. He has thrown interceptions to lose playoff games and playoff chances for the last three years including Green Bay.

Brett Favre should just face it here. The season is over. His career is over. There is no point in playing in any more games this season or at all.

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Fires Wade Phillips

November 8, 2010 1 comment

ESPN – Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones fired coach Wade Phillips on Monday, sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Ed Werder.

The move comes less than a year after he was given a two-year contract extension for leading the Cowboys to their first playoff win in over a decade. He will be replaced by offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, the sources said. Continue Reading…

Jerry Jones has fired Wade Phillips and replaced him with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. It was the obvious decision after the Dallas Cowboys lost 45-7 to the Green Bay packers to become 1-7 overall this season. 

Deion Sander focused. He knew what it meant to be a part of the Dallas Cowboys organization.

Jerry Jones even said “There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences” after the loss.

The loss was embarrassing and depressing to watch as a Cowboys fan. To say it was an ass-kicking would be an understatement.

And im still hopeless. This firing is 2 seasons late. Too much work needs to be done now.

No leaders, slow players, wide receivers dropping passes, defensive backs and linebackers can’t tackle, penalties and more penalties. To top it all off…Tony Romo is our ‘franchise’ quarterback.

It’s not looking good. And I’m tired of watching this sorry excuse for a football team every Sunday.

Jerry Jones has one option as owner of the Dallas Cowboys: Clean house.

Fire all coaches and any players who don’t understand what it means to wear the Dallas Cowboys helmet. Then throw an irresistible amount of money at Tim Cowher to come back out of retirement.

I just want to get back to the glory days of Troy Aikman, Emmit Smith and Deion Sanders.

The Dallas Cowboys are a cut above the rest, sort of like the New York Yankees. What’s expected of a baseball player is understood when he puts that pinstripe uniform on, period.

Were suppose to be America’s team. The Star on the Dallas Cowboys helmet represents history, class, strength, pride, and greatness.

Yes, that comes with increased responsibilities and higher expectations. But the Dallas Cowboys are some of the highest paid players in the NFL.

If you can’t stand the heat get out the kitchen. It’s that simple.

Is the Wade Phillips firing a step in the right direction..??

I guess.

America's football team needs to get back to the top
