We did play 3 games this season on NBC, so Dungy should have done at least some filmwork with us on 3 separate occasions this season. I agree that's probably not the same as what Kiffin has done in preparation for this job, but I would be surprised if a guy like Dungy didn't do his homework before those games too.
There are few people as qualified as Kiffin to comment on the Cover 2, but considering that Dungy not only coached the Cover 2 he actually played the original in Pittsburgh, he is probably one of them.
I think he probably missed Lee due to injury and Carter was only on the field for a limited time, but most of the rest of our defense are pretty veteran guys who have been around long enough for Dungy to have a good idea what they are and how they fit.
Finally, Kiffin has a motive to say he thinks he can turn it around right away - he wants a job. If he says Dallas is 2 or 3 drafts away maybe Jerry says too long and no thanks to the whole switch. Dungy is just doing his job, commenting on what he thinks.
