Dallas Cowboys interim head coach Jason Garrett was thought of before this year as a potential head coaching candidate.
With Garrett finally getting his chance after the firing of head coach Wade Phillips, Garrett is already making a name for himself.
In Garrett’s first game as a coach the Cowboys up set the New York Giants defeating them 33-20 and then on this past Sunday they defeated the Detroit Lions 35-19. However, on Thursday the Cowboys lost a heart breaker as they were defeated by the New Orleans Saints 30-20.
What makes it a heart breaker is that the Cowboys were leading the Saints 27-23 and were on their way to score what appeared to be the game clinching touchdown. That turned out not to be as on that drive wide receiver Roy Williams was stripped of the football. That would prove to be costly as the Saints march right down the field for the game winning touchdown.
Clearly, the Cowboys are a much different team under Garrett. What most likely happened is that the Cowboys got lazy and complacent under Phillips.
In the end, if the Cowboys continue to play this good under Garrett you can expect it to be his permanently.
