True, but Switzer was handed a team with numerous HOF players. Donald is the only one who will probably land in that group. Gurley might have the talent, but he has a long way to go.

Reminds me a little when Barry Switzer took over in Dallas.
I agree in a way. The Rams are no where near as talented as that mini-dynasty Dallas team, but it's a worthy comparison.

The Rams were terrible for such an extended period of time they used to always be high up in the draft. When Jeff Fisher came there, they got that boat load of draft picks from the Redskins trading everything to get RGIII.

I think they finally lucked into a decent roster due to all the high draft picks during their awful years and Jeff Fisher kept them at 7-9 so they kept getting good position in the draft. As time went on, they finally started hitting and got some decent players out of those draft picks.

Dallas winning that last SB was the greatest thing to ever happen for the NFL in the long run.

It "proved" to Jerry in his mind that he knows more about football than any coach out there. Because he got that ring with Barry Switzer, he has felt ever since that he could truly win a SB with any coach. This is the sole reason no coach in Dallas since then has been allowed to do their job without him interfering and meddling with the team.

Had they not gotten that last ring with Switzer at the helm, Jerry probably figures it out that he really isn't all that smart with running a team. Dallas has had some great talent in the past 13 years despite being in the purgatory of mediocrity. They would've made it back to the SB by now if not for Jerry meddling with the team (check the Bill Parcells years in the 2000s. Parcells constructed a pretty good team, only for Jerry to screw it up). Jerry would rather have a puppet head coach like Garrett, than someone who could really do things.

Dallas currently has a stacked young defense that has tons of great potential to be a dominant unit in the future, but they'll never reach their potential as long as Jason Garrett is the head coach. Jerry will screw it up (and is already doing so by keeping the clapper at head coach), just like he did in the 2000s with that team Parcells built.

This article caught my eye.

Checkdowns: Sean McVay’s Super Bowl Blunder Before The Two Minute Warning

McVay called a time out and allowed NE a bit of time to draw a serious run play that gashed them and pretty much won the game for them.

Even had the Pats punted though, the Rams would've had a very slim chance of going down the field and tying it with how awful Goff played. If they hang on to those two INTs earlier and get the fumble or if the Pats offense had actually showed up, this would've been a blow out. This game really never felt close even when it was tied. It reminded me so much of SB 50 where the game was 10-13 most of the day, yet felt like it was 24-0 with how bad Denver was beating Carolina down that day.

This is the polar opposite of when New England DIDN'T call a timeout at the goal line vs Seattle. Calling that timeout would've gave them more time to think about it and they probably run Lynch like everyone brings up.

McVay in all of his genius called that time out and then Burkhead gave them the kill shot with his big run for a first down.

Like I have said before; I would hate to be a fan of any of the teams who recently hired a young assistant from McVay. He isn't the future of the NFL. This is going to be a one trick pony and a failed revolution of coaches. Defense still wins championships.
