2. Results as an OC/with QB’s
It seems like eons ago, but when Jason Garrett started his career with Dallas back in 2007 he led one of the most potent offenses in the NFL right out of the gates. In his three full years as the OC, the Cowboys had a top-three offense in the NFL twice.
I understand that team was pretty loaded talent-wise, but how much better could he (or anyone) possibly have done? Tony Romo has only started ten games in his career without Jason Garrett running the offense, and he went on to have an amazing career.
After Romo was fazed out of the picture, Garrett took a little known fourth-round draft pick out of Mississippi State and turned him into one of the better quarterbacks in all of football. While Dak surely has his limitations, that only makes what Garrett coaxed out of him all the more impressive. With TD/INT splits of 96/37, Garrett deserves a ton of credit for developing Prescott.
If Garrett can get results like that out of Dak Prescott, just imagine what he can do with Daniel Jones, who seems to be exponentially more talented.
