Cowboys coaches on chopping block


Things are getting tense within the Dallas Cowboys organization. There are reports of tension between quarterback Tony Romo and head coach Jason Garrett following the collapse last week against the Green Bay Packers. Garrett essentially blamed Romo saying he called an audible out of a run play when he threw the interception.

Then there are reports of a “frosty relationship” between Romo and running back DeMarco Murray. Now ESPN’s Ed Werder, who reported the Romo-Garrett tension, is saying that the Cowboys coaching staff is working under pressure.

According to Werder, the Cowboys will fire Garrett along with the coaching staff if the Cowboys don’t win the NFC East and make the playoffs. Jones seemed to be reaching a breaking point when asked about Garrett’s job security after the loss to the Packers.

    We now have eight or nine stories about Garrett and Romo fighting, Murray not trusting Romo, Jones giving the Chop to the entire coaching staff, Callahan blaming Romo, Romo blaming Callahan, everyone hating Kiffin.

    I don’t know about you but all this Sturm und Drang about mistrust, distrust and firing makes me wonder just what particular maelstrom of finger pointing and overall chaos must be going on inside the Cowboys” locker room right about now?
