It goes without saying, but every single decision Jason Garrett makes moving forward could either save his job or finish his time as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.
With his seat getting hotter by the day, Dallas' issues on special teams continue to stand out. However, despite bringing in some players for workouts, it looks like Garrett will be sticking with Brett Maher as his starting kicker.
Maher had a game to forget against the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving, missing both his field goal attempts. It goes beyond that showing, though. On the year, Maher is 19-of-28 with his FG tries and has missed at least one boot in four of his last five games.
For the Cowboys, who are fighting and clawing their way to try and win the NFC East, this is simply unacceptable. Dak Prescott and Co. can't continue to drive down the field and have long drives result in zero points. If they can't get the ball into the end zone for six, they need someone to step up and help them get three.
Despite fans calling for Maher to be released, Garrett is sticking with him. For JG, he better hope this decision works out. Unless he goes on a deep run in the postseason, it's looking like his time in Big D will come to an end.
Will Maher be the one to save him come January? If you ask those in Dallas, they'd say you'd be wise not to count on it.
