Newy Scruggs, sports anchor at NBC5 in Dallas-Fort Worth (KXAS-TV) and radio host weekly from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on NBC Sports Radio Sirius XM 213/202 and NBCSportsRadio.com, answered questions during a live chat recently. Here are some of the highlights.
How many more playoff-less seasons do you think Jason Garrett is allowed before Jerry finally fires him?
Scruggs: Jerry Jones will not get rid of Jason Garrett until he sees empty seats.
Jones is a business man and when he sees his fanbase turn then a move to oust Garrett will happen.
Until then, Garrett keeps his job [and] 2018 will be Year 8 of his era.
Which Cowboys WR's job security is the highest right now between Dez, Beasley, Williams and Switzer?
Scruggs: Switzer is a rookie and doesn't make a lot of money and he is their return guy so his job is pretty safe.
Beasley and Williams just signed deals and they are making under $5 million apiece.
Dez Bryant will be getting a call from the pay cut police so he is in danger when it comes to job security. He is slated to make the second most amount of money on the Cowboys in 2018. He is not their second best player.
