Well, I got more response to my call for help blogging in the offseason than I expected. Both in the thread and through email, I’ve received close to 15 notifications of people throwing their hat into the ring. I was especially surprised, and gratified, to find out about a whole group of people who read the blog religiously but don’t post diaries or comments. Who knew there were so many lurkers out there? Anyway, I need to figure out what I’m going to do, so to everybody who asked to be considered, please hold tight, it might take me a little while to sort this out.
You can still add your name to the list by posting in this thread or by sending me an email. If you send email, please include your BTB name if you have one.
Nick Eatman takes a cursory look at our own free agents and what the Cowboys may do. I’ll have much more on this over the next week or so.
Mark Peter King down as another press member who thinks if Wade doesn’t get it done this year, Jason Garrett will be the coach.
One more thing about Jason Garrett's decision to stay: Don't buy the stuff about Garrett making so much money he'll usurp the authority of Phillips. First, Garrett is a coach's son. He's a total team guy, a low-ego guy and never would do anything to make Phillips uncomfortable. Now, having said that, if the Cowboys have another one-and-out exit from the playoffs next season, I think Jerry Jones will take about 10 minutes to fire Phillips, interview one minority candidate and then hire Garrett as his next head coach.
The family of former Dallas Cowboy Ron Springs is expected to file a lawsuit as he remains in a coma following a routine surgery, NBC 5 reported.
Springs was undergoing surgery to have a cyst removed at Medical City of Dallas in October when he slipped into the coma. It is not clear yet if the hospital will be the health care facility named in the suit or if there is a third party involved, NBC 5 reported.
