I have no problem with returning the same defensive unit in entirety from coaching staff down to personnel, other than maybe switching out the McCray safety. When you go up and down the list of safeties that have started for the Cowboys over the last ten years, the list is a amazing collection of nobodies. Danny McCray will soon join Killer Keith Davis and Willie Pyles and Pat Watkins and broken down Marcus Coleman in the "How in the heck did he ever start games for us?" list of nostalgia and disbelief. Easily the most neglected unit on the team over the last 10 years. I'm not even talking about talent misevaluation, I'm talking just straight up neglecting the position because you put absolutely no value in it.
Marcus Spears is pretty much a walking example of how difficult it is to lose a starting position or roster spot once you've been designated "trusted veteran" in this organization. You pretty much have to pull a Brodney Poole and outright dare the organization to get rid of you through insubordination and lack of interest.
I really think Matt Eberflus is a valuable asset to his team, not just in the progress of Lee and Carter, but in being able to pick up unwanted street free agents like Ernie Simms and at least have them playing at a serviceable level inside the defense inside a few days. Regardless of what happens with the coaching staff, I hope he's in Dallas and contributing to the Cowboys defensive brain trust for a long, long time.
Despite labeling myself a "realist", no one understands my pain or appreciates my special truth. Stupid world.
