Herschel Walker: Cowboys’ Jason Garrett is not a head coach, he is an OC


Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett gets another shot at leading the Cowboys to an NFC East title and the playoffs in 2014. Owner Jerry Jones has decided to stand by his head coach, but one former Cowboys player doesn’t think Garrett is a head coach.

“One of the things I’ve said many times, and forgive me for saying this, but I think Jason Garrett is an offensive coordinator,” former Cowboys running back Herschel Walker said on GBag Nation on KRLD-FM, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think he’s done well as a head coach, but he’s not a head coach. He’s an offensive coordinator. I think you’ve got to get a head coach in and let Jason go back to being an offensive coordinator.

“The games that they lost, they should have been running the ball. Even though they stacked the box, what they’re saying then is we’re going to force you to throw the ball because you can’t throw the ball. Well you’ve got one of the best receivers in Dez Bryant in the NFL. You’re gonna tell me you can’t throw the ball? You can throw the ball. The thing is you’ve just gotta put a scheme together that’s gonna work.

“But that’s not the problem in losing the game. Losing the game is all the mistakes they’re making, the penalties they’re making.

    Come on Mike. I love Herschel Walker and all, but I do not know if he was drunk or suffering from a concussion during this interview. Of course, the writer needs some brushing up as well. When you quote someone, do your readers a favor and close out the quotation marks. That way, we know when the interviewee is done talking and the writer is providing facts/opinion.
