Performing Tuesday on 1310 The Ticket (h/t Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning Recordsdata), Aikman called the Cowboys “dysfunctional” and acknowledged they’ve to perform greater than fire head coach Jason Garrett:
“Plow via the listing and this team, over an awfully long time-frame, has been what or no longer it’s been. It hasn’t continuously mattered who the head coach has been. In an effort to me, ought to you are asking me, I’d enlighten there has to be a full overhaul of your entire organization. Now you can not honest exact cannot simply substitute head coaches and enlighten, ‘Now or no longer it will likely be better.’ No, or no longer it’s been confirmed that or no longer it’s no longer better. And as well you’ve got got to handle how every part is being completed.”
Following Monday’s loss, the Cowboys are three-5, and they path the Washington Redskins by two games for the NFC East lead.
Issues might perhaps well get hang of worse for the Cowboys in Week 10 within the occasion that they cannot pull off a avenue bewitch over the 4-4 Philadelphia Eagles.
Since Garrett took over as the Cowboys head coach in 2010, Dallas has reached the playoffs honest exact twice.
The Cowboys went thirteen-three in 2016, but they fell to 9-7 final season and are on tempo for a worse raise out this season.
For the duration of Aikman’s 12-year occupation with the Cowboys, he went Ninety four-seventy one as a starter, led them to the playoffs eight instances and won the Colossal Bowl on three instances. Since Aikman’s 2000 retirement, the Cowboys find won honest exact two playoff games.
Even supposing the team is mired in a tough stretch, Aikman would not mediate owner Jerry Jones will manufacture drastic adjustments:
“And there is been instances the place I’ve heard Jerry enlighten, ‘OK, ogle, we’re going to perform it in a different blueprint. I could perform it in a different blueprint.’ Nevertheless it absolutely’s the identical. Nothing adjustments. And that to me is the greater enlighten, previous, ‘Yes, coaching’s basic, personnel, all these items are basic, but how are you going about evaluating? How are you going about operating the organization?”
Dallas did manufacture a tall pass Oct. 22 when it purchased huge receiver Amari Cooper from the Oakland Raiders for a first-spherical pick. The alternate regarded as if it might perhaps per chance most likely most likely well relieve quarterback Dak Prescott on Monday, as he threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns, one of which modified into once to Cooper.
Dallas misplaced regardless, and with a brutal stretch that involves games against the Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, Redskins and Unusual Orleans Saints over the following 4 weeks, the season might perhaps well get hang of uglier.
