Will Jason Garrett Lose His Job If The Dallas Cowboys Don't Win Against The Philadelphia Eagles Tonight?


Texas News Blog: Some people believe that Jason Garrett will be fired by Jerry Jones tonight, if the Cowboys lose to the Eagles. I don't include myself in that group. Why? Well, I believe in Jerry Jones mind the decision to keep or fire Garrett was made long before the game between Dallas and Philadelphia is played tonight. Instead of asking whether or not Jason Garrett will be fired as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys at the end of the 2013 season. The better question is, should he be replaced? In my opinion, the answer to that question is no. There are many reasons why the full potential of the Dallas Cowboys has not materialized in recent years and Jason Garrett's head coaching ability is only a minuscule part of the overall problem.

Grinch That Stole Christmas Ended Up Working For Fedex, UPS And The Post Office In 2013


Texas News Blog: For most folks, Christmas ended yesterday. However - for thousands of Texans, holiday gifts have yet to be delivered. All the problems that affected Fedex, UPS and the United States Postal Service in 2013 are too numerous to list. However - icy weather and a massive increase in the numbers of people buying Christmas gifts from Internet companies like Amazon.com, definitely made things worse. Delivery problems for USPS, Fedex and UPS affected consumers in the Lone Star State more than others, because of a terrible ice storm that hit the Dallas and Fort Worth areas in mid-December. For a week, nothing was moving up or down Interstate 35 between DFW and the Oklahoma border. Even Houston was affected by the DFW ice storm as thousands of residents there did not receive shipped Christmas gifts from Fedex and UPS by December 25th. Sadly, some late shipped packages might not reach their destinations until right before the New Year. Maybe re-gifting for next year is a viable option?
