Former Players McNabb and Moss Take Shots At Cowboys Coaching Staff

Jason Garrett

Recently during a roundtable segment filmed for FOX Sports Live, former NFL players Randy Moss and Donovan McNabb joined Brian Urlacher for the nine-minute video analyzing the Cowboys, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

McNabb, the former six-time Pro Bowl quarterback for Philadelphia, explained why he thinks the problems with the Cowboys are not the players on the field.

“I think for the Dallas Cowboys it’s much more than just what we see from the defense and offense, I mean, let’s go upstairs,” McNabb said.

“Let’s talk about the coaching staff. How do you go from Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli being a position coach to [Marinelli] now being the defensive coordinator and Kiffin being like a position coach? And it’s the same on the offensive end. You had Jason Garrett calling plays, supposedly, then Callahan.”

Then, McNabb went after coach Jason Garrett.

“I’m still figuring out how he still has a job at this particular point the way we have continued to see this team just continue to crumble,” he said. “He was behind Troy Aikman and he was behind Dan Marino, too. [Garrett was never behind Marino].

“You’re behind hall of famers and you see how they carry the two-minute offense. He’s run the two-minute offense himself as a starting quarterback. The way that they control their offense in certain games, how can you lead games in the middle of the third quarter and you end up losing the game?”

McNabb added: “You can’t fire Wade Phillips and hire Jason Garrett and Jason Garrett’s doing worse than Wade Phillips was doing. That’s just not going to get it done. What team is going to follow that?”

Moss also put a large amount of the blame on the Cowboys coaching staff. Even with the losses of DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher, one of the game’s greatest wide receivers says Dallas still has a talented roster.

“When you look on paper, it’s every year that the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders have a lot of talent on their team,” Moss said. “I mean, talented, top-end players. For the Dallas Cowboys to keep sputtering every year, it’s not the players – some of it falls on the players – but go on up top and see what’s going on.”

Moss specifically blamed the franchise’s coaching staff when the discussion turned to Tony Romo.

“The thing that’s not really fair to Tony Romo is he really hasn’t had that coaching to be able to bring him along,” Moss said. “I’m not sitting here busting Garrett or trying to call Garrett out, but there has not been nothing steady in Dallas. It’s always coaches come and go.”

So, do the Cowboys finally get over the 8-8 hump and make a playoff appearance?

Moss: “Nope.”

  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
