Former Eagles and Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens is a pain in the ass.
But he made a very fair point Wednesday night on a Dallas radio station:
Why does Cowboys coach Jason Garrett still have his job?
“When you really look at it, it doesn’t make sense for Jason Garrett to continue to have his job,” Owens said. “[The organization is] not really expanding or progressing even as a team under his coaching tenure there.”
He continued, comparing Garrett to Dwane Casey, the former head coach of the Toronto Raptors. Casey, who was voted Coach of the Year by his peers after leading Toronto to the top seed in the Eastern Conference and three straight seasons with 50 or more wins,was fired earlier this month. The team let him go after being swept by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round of the playoffs.
“And then you have Jason Garrett who has no accomplishments not even close to [Casey’s] and he continues to still have a job,” Owens said. “It all boils down to players being the scapegoat for his inability to lead the team as he should. For me it’s mind-boggling. I don’t understand. And I think Jerry [Jones] — again he’s the owner at the end of the day, he has to feel good with himself about the decisions — but I just don’t understand why [Garrett] still has a job.”
