What up BTB world, this is my first post after lurking for the past couple months. Since everything on God's globally-warmed earth Cowboys-related gets covered on this blog, I'm sure y'all have talked about this already. But, I was wondering about our coaches. I'll admit, I'm quite fond of the Pillsbury Doughboy also known as Wade, and I'll reserve my final judgment on Red Rocket until after this season, but the general sentiment I get is that barring a deep playoff run, Wade's out. There's talk on other sites/radio shows about bringing in a hungry and fresh Mike Shanahan, Mike Holgren, or possibly even Bill Cowher, but I'm not quite on that wagon yet. Jason Garrett (I expect) will firmly establish himself as the leading HC candidate with a successful offensive attack this year post-TO, but if Wade is out and Garrett's the HC, who steps in to lead our defense? Wade's known as arguably the best in the 3-4 business, so would his replacement be able to keep up the performance? Or, does he stay in Dallas beyond this season if we make the playoffs?
Also, John Clayton on ESPN brought up an interesting point about the scoreboard:
"What I'd like to see is a visiting quarterback hit the scoreboard with 30 seconds remaining and no timeouts and see if he can get a dead-ball ruling that is mandated for punts that hit the scoreboard. The quarterback can do this by rolling out of the pocket and firing the ball at the scoreboard. As long as he is outside the pocket and the ball is past the line of scrimmage, there can't be any intentional grounding calls.
In fact, would it not be out of line for a team with no timeouts to just throw to hit the scoreboard after each first down to reset the clock. If the scoreboard costs the Cowboys a chance to win a home game, you'll see how embarrassing the result will be."
