Jerry Jones Needs to Come to His Senses and Fire Jason Garrett Midseason

It's been LONG overdue, but the setbacks that the Dallas Cowboys have endured in the midst of their current three-game losing streak should serve as the final straw in Jerry Jones' decision on the future of head coach Jason Garrett.

The Cowboys started the 2019 campaign 3-0 with a distinct head start over the 1-2, injury-riddled Philadelphia Eagles.

Fast forward to the conclusion of Week 6, however, and Big D is 3-3 and fresh off a humbling loss at the previously-winless New York Jets, now tied with the Eagles atop the NFC East at 3-3.

That quote, right there, is the reason that the Cowboys won't achieve anything significant in 2019. Jones' blind faith in Garrett, despite the fact that he's mustered just two playoff wins since being hired back in 2010, continues to be one of the most exasperating storylines in the NFL.

Folks, it looks to the naked eye like Garrett's own players don't even want to play for him! How do we know this? Maliek Collins and Joe Thomas were seen snubbing the HC on a hi-five attempt while waltzing over to the sidelines on Sunday.

Everybody and their mother knows that goes against every unwritten rule in the book -- you dap up your head coach when you come off the field, regardless of the scoreline.

It (obviously) goes beyond that and we could truthfully ramble on for an eternity with reasons as to why Garrett deserves to be canned.

The Cowboys' continuous letdowns have been a prevalent narrative for YEARS on end, in defiance of flaunting one of the league's most talented rosters. That's a product of poor coaching.

Squandering a two-game lead in your division within a three-week span is the product of poor coaching. Your team failing to play anything that resembles competent football in the first halves of the last two games is the product of poor coaching.

Pull the trigger, Jerry, and fire Garrett already. Enough with decorum. He's had more than enough chances to prove you wrong.
