Earlier this week, NFL insider Mike Florio posited that Jason Garrett’s run with the Dallas Cowboys could be at its end. After a disappointing performance on the national stage Monday night against the Tennessee Titans, Garrett’s seat got a bit warmer.
Now, heading into a tough divisional game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Mike Florio made an interesting prediction. If the Cowboys get blown out this weekend against the Eagles, Florio thinks the team will make a head coaching move.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones already came out in support of Garrett as the team’s head coach, but Jones has done that in the past with other head coaches and changes were made.
Here’s what Florio had to say about the potential move.
When the Eagles win against Dallas, the Eagles sometimes win big. 37-9 last year. 27-13 in 2016. 33-10 in 2014. 34-7 and 20-7 in 2011. And who can forget that 44-6 shellacking by the Eagles from the final week of 2008, which put the Eagles into the playoffs and knocked the Cowboys out?
Another outcome like one of those outcomes could end up being the final nail for Garrett, and his final act as head coach of the team.
Of course, this is all speculation. However, Dallas has made the playoffs just two times in Garrett’s nine seasons as the head coach.
Another season of missed opportunity likely spells the end for Garrett.
