Mavericks’ Mark Cuban thinks Cowboys’ Jones shouldn’t fire Jason Garrett


The Dallas Cowboys could be looking for a new head coach this offseason. There have been reports that Jason Garrett is coaching for his job in the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. Meanwhile, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has repeatedly said that Garrett isn’t coaching for his job.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has said now weighed in on what he thinks the Cowboys should do.

From Dwain Price of the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram:

“I think Jerry would be quite crazy to fire Jason Garrett — not that he would,” Cuban said before his team played San Antonio on Thursday night. “The hardest thing to do, and I’ve said this before, is hire a head coach.

“That’s the hardest thing in professional sports, in my opinion.”

It could come down more to what candidates are available this year. If there is someone appealing and promising a move could be made, but if there isn’t a desirable or worthy candidate they could let Garrett ride out his final contract year.

    And another voice heard from the stadium boxes!

    Who cares what Cuban thinks. You work your side of the street, we’ll work ours.

    • JoeDaBeast

      Mark Cuban is a fan, same as you, so he opinion holds just as much weight as you (a bit more since he is a millionaire owner in the same town and would benefit from a winner partner in Dallas).

      • SmartThinking

        And he benefits exactly how, again? Cuban is known for butting into situations that don’t require his opinions. Him offering his opinion on keeping or dumping Garrett carry about as much weight as me telling him who his starting five ought to be. Difference is, when he says something, people think he’s super smart just because he owns a team in another game altogether. In truth, based on what I’ve seen of his teams recently, I’m probably a better judge of football talent than he is a basketball team owner.

        • JoeDaBeast

          When teams in different markets, but same locations are winning, the fans spend more money on both teams. I assumed with your infinite wisdom, you would have known that. I guess you’re right that you are a better judge of talent based on your number of playoff games and championships won, right?

          • SmartThinking

            Prove it that teams in different sports altogether in winning markets make more money! My infinite wisdom tells me that statement has no basis in truth whatsoever. And don’t provide anecdotal claptrap about some team somewhere. Prove your statement with verifiable facts if you can. I say you’re full of it. Kinda like Cuban commenting on things Cowboys.

          • JoeDaBeast

            Look at markets where the Yankees and Knicks were winning, or the Bills and the Sabers, or the Marlins and the Lightning, or the Lakers and the Dodgers. When teams in the same town, but in different industries, the fan base gets riled up/fired up over their teams and spend more money on tickets, merchandise, etc. it doesn’t work as well as teams on the same industry and in the same location, such as the As and the Giants, or the Knicks and the Nets, or the Deadskins and the Ravens.

          • SmartThinking

            Teams when? Teams where? Profits percentages? Verifiable increases in volume or profits? Quotes by GM’s validating your argument?Where’s your proof? Got any? Thought not. My infinite wisdom tells me everything you’ve stated so far is unverifiable, therefore, your opinion. I rest my case against Cuban.

          • JoeDaBeast

            You have truly over valued my desire to sway you to my way of thinking. No matter what information I’d provide to you, you’re going to believe what you want to believe, and your ignorance of having no desire to budge from your stand is evident. You opinion is as important to you as mine is to me. The difference? Cuban is a friend and colleague of Jones, so Cuban’s opinion is TONS more valuable to Jones than yours EVER will be. Case closed sweetheart and good night.

          • SmartThinking

            Still no proof. Thought not. All the rest of your comment is rhetoric.

          • JoeDaBeast

            Thank you for proving my point AGAIN!!

          • SmartThinking

            AGAIN, You have no point. You’ve never made a point. Just stated your opinion. I’m sorry for you that you can’t communicate effectively in this forum. But throwing out speculative information about things you can’t substantiate serves no one.

          • JoeDaBeast

            Wow, sounds the same as YOUR opinion when you said who cares what Cuban thinks. Obviously many do, you don’t. And you weight carries nothing (how is that for a fact?). I could provide facts and numbers to justify my opinion, but you’re the type who’s head would EXPLODE before you admitted failure or concede, so why bother outside the fact of showing other readers your lack of making sense and just deflecting responses. Must be a politician.

          • SmartThinking

            Listen. If you’d like to carry this argument forward, I’m game. Only don’t bore me with your droll speculations. Try facts for a change. So, tee it up, bud, and let’s get to it. But I warn you, in this little war of words between us, I’m dueling with an unarmed man.

          • JoeDaBeast

            Strange, you’ve stated ZERO facts, asking for it. Enjoying playing with that unarmed man (since it’s not me).

          • SmartThinking

            The only thing strange about your response is how you’ve sidestepped the challenge. And that’s a fact. Accept it or don’t!

          • JoeDaBeast

            Again…same thing, same tired result. Still no facts to back YOUR claim, which of course, you’ll sidestep AGAIN (or finally keep quiet). Either way, I’m enjoying doing this to you.

          • SmartThinking

            I’m going to help you.

            The city of Cleveland is a real hard-luck place for sports – the Browns have struggled since returning to the NFL, the Cavaliers are failing in their post-LeBron era and the Indians haven’t won a World Series in more than sixty years.
