is certainly not going to denigrate Monte, but suggesting that it would take two years to transform the roster, which is nothing short of chilling when you consider how much the front office focus needs to be on the offense. Dungy said, "the Cowboys don't have what this system takes. That's why I will be curious to see what they end up doing."

suggests the Kiffin hiring will ruin the next Cowboys draft, because we suddenly have needs all over the board.
[View Full Quote]The Daily Trojan website was nothing short of amazed at the Cowboys move. A quote, "In the three years prior to Kiffin’s arrival, USC defenses surrendered an average of 278.5 total yards and 14.9 points per game. Under Kiffin’s watch from 2010-12, however, USC defenses surrendered an average of 390 total yards and 24.9 points per game."
Always thoughtful Bob Sturm questions, "It makes you wonder if Monte Kiffin is prepared to deal with the division going through the zone read in Washington. The Tampa 2 is to slow down the West Coast offense and the greatest show on turf over in St Louis. How many times did Tampa have to deal with what we are seeing in 2012?"
Michael Taglienti at GridIronGrit, wonders how Kiffin...who couldn't stop spread offenses in his stops at Tennessee and USC...can cope with them in the NFL. Kiffin's defense gave up an average of over 600 yards when facing the Duck spread. Now the Duck offensive mastermind is with the Eagles.
Both the firing of Ryan and the hiring of Kiffin: STOOOOPID
interesting how much of that is from USC. College. Means very little.
