Sean Payton. Tony Sparano. Norv Turner. As Randy Galloway kindly reminds us, these are just a few of the folks Jerry has passed on during the process of hiring and keeping Wade. Surely there’s a good reason Mr. Jones has ignored such strong coaching talent. My theory? Jason Garrett.
After some initial success at the offensive coordinator position, Jerry decided that Jason Garrett was going to be the next coach, but decided that it was best to allow him to organically grow into the job. So Jerry pays him obscene money to keep him around as an assistant coach while Wade kept the seat warm. Unfortunately, Garrett hit some obstacles along the way and Jerry was forced to keep Wade around a little longer than planned.
Mark my words—once Wade’s finally gone, Jason Garrett will be crowned king.
I’d love to hear some of your [conspiracy] theories as well. Tell me, what other reasons would Jerry have for keeping Wade?
