If he’d gone 5-11 and then 6-10 (same record) and NOT been a dick and NOT had long losing streaks, I could have seen them giving it one more year. But ultimately, when you pay a guy $3M a year, he’s supposed to get the credit when stuff goes right and take the blame when stuff goes wrong. All the drama, well, ultimately (as he was fond of saying), “that’s on me.”The trend seems to be that coaches have shorter and shorter leashes. Four coaches in the last three years alone have been fired after just one season. Tom Landry would be hard-pressed to keep his gig today if his first five years were what they were at the Cowboys' startup.

Please wait…
