Jason Garrett Offered Ravens Head Coaching Job


Jason Garrett (HometownAnnapolis.com)Okay. We all know Jason Garrett had a more than impressive regular season with the Dallas Cowboys. But it didn’t pay off for them in the playoffs, and just days after the debacle, sources close to the Ravens say the team is trying to make Garrett the third head coach in Ravens history.

Garrett could very well be the man for the job, seeing that he spent an entire season with Terrell Owens without a blow-up. The Ravens offense looks like it could be poised to put up numbers similar to the Cowboys with personnel like Mark Clayton, Todd Heap, and Willis McGahee. The offensive line, with the exception of Jonathan Ogden, is forming up like the Cowboys of the 90′s.

But questions remain about how the team’s direction at quarterback, and the productivity of an aged defense. What kind of leader will Garrett be with an egotistical collection on the defensive side of the ball? Who will he bring in to coordinate the defense?

While there may be significant questions, all signs point to Garrett being a good answer for the Baltimore Ravens, should he accept the offer.

    "The offensive line, with the exception of Jonathan Ogden, is forming up like the Cowboys of the 90’s."That seems like a bit of a stretch to me. The Cowboys o-line in the early ’90s was one of the greatest ever.

    Yikes. Put up numbers similar to the Cowboys with Heap, Clayton and McGahee? Dude, who the hell is your quarterback. Come on.Keep this in mind: Jerry Jones credits Garrett with transforming Tony Romo into the QB he was this year. I am not sure that is a fair attribution to Garrett because Romo in 10 games last year looked as he did this year at the end of the season. But, maybe the Ravens powers believe he can transform one of your QBs into a Romo. Possible. But none of your QBs have even shown a hint of the play Romo has shown, that Brett-Favre like playmaking ability (that seemed to fade in December and January). I think if you got Garrett, you would be happy in the direction the Ravens end up taking. What this does for the Cowboys…ugh. Cam Cameron here we come.

    Think about it. With Ben Grubbs, Jared Gaither, and the other members of the young line, these guys will jell and learn and become as formidable a line as any team in the league. I know it’s hard for you to think about anything Cowboys right now, especially QB protection that broke down poorly against the Giants. But it will come together for the Ravens, and it has the look of greatness about it.

    The little dig was unecessary. You refuse to answer the big question: Who is your Tony Romo? You can have the best line in the world but if you a rex grossman back there, which you do, it won’t matter. Answer the damn question and refrain from the petty attack. You know your second-favorite team is the Cowboys, as you once told me.

    As I mentioned in my post, there are definitely questions at quarterback. What question is there to answer other than Troy Smith or a free agent leading the offense? It might just be Rex Grossman.
