According to a report from ESPN’s Ed Werder, Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett will be fired if Dallas fails to make the playoffs this season.
If Dallas defeats the Washington Redskins Sunday, they will be in line for a winner-take-all match up with the Philadelphia Eagles in week 17. The Cowboys have fallen short of qualifying for postseason play in the final game of the season each of the last two years.
Garrett and quarterback Tony Romo also reportedly have tension after Garrett singled Romo out for changing a running play to a pass that led to an interception late in their stunning week 15 loss to the Packers. And if Jerry Jones had to choose between Garrett and the QB his gave $50 mil to, chances are Garrett would draw the short end of the stick.
Dallas has a habit of blowing big games in December, and if that trend isn’t broken this season it could finally cost Garrett his job. Given that the Cowboys are exactly a .500 team since 1997, you can bet that they’ll find some way to collapse in the most embarrassing fashion. Because they’re the Dallas Cowboys.
