Lots of attempts today, in many circles, to figure out what Dallas Cowboys
owner Jerry Jones meant when he spoke on the radio about "change" coming to the team in the wake of its second straight 8-8 season. You know what I think, which is that Jones plays to the fans when he does those radio shows and that reading too much into what he says on them is a mistake. But since it's "out there," as they say, let's play along.
Calvin Watkins wonders
if defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has anything to fear, and concludes that he probably does not:
Ryan and the rest of the coaching staff never used the injuries as an excuse. But it was clear, Ryan didn't have his best personnel for the majority of the season and with the season on the line, at Washington in the regular season finale, Ryan had his best pass rusher, DeMarcus Ware, play with one arm, which will need surgery soon to repair shoulder and elbow damage.
Jones said numerous teams have health issues and they're able to overcome them.
It seems Ryan's job status is secure, as it should be, but maybe Jones wants the defensive coordinator to make some changes to how he does things.
