    This thread isn't about either of you two guys. It's got a topic already, so, let's, you know, discuss that.

    Is this so Stephen can talk directly to McClay without violating the company org chart?

    No salary cap in the front office - advantage Dallas

    Great post that will be largely ignored.

    I appreciate Jerry being willing to compete with Microsoft and WalMart money.

    IMO, the equivalent of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    Our personnel "structure" is a disaster.

    It should be. I don't think it is (currently).

    A few things I found interesting about the Cowboys scouting staff. Feel free to correct me if any of this is wrong as some of this is kind of difficult to find and some of it is from last year. I do think they made at least one change this year.

    I didn't pay much attention to the guys that were mainly salary cap guys.

    - The only guy that appears to have any experience with the OL at all is Ciscowski. He had some limited coaching experience.

    - A couple members of the scouting department (Chris Hall, Bill Dekraker, Mitch LaPoint, Alex Loomis and Justin Stuckey) don't seem to have any playing or coaching experience

    - The scouting department, as a whole, seems to have a stronger background with the secondary, linebackers and running backs. This includes coaching and playing. Personally, I feel these are areas the teams drafts better than other positions (at least CB, maybe not S).

    - I took a cursory look at the 49ers and Ravens staffs. The Ravens, in particular, seemed to have mainly guys with playing and coaching backgrounds. They had a lot of secondary and OL backgrounds....not a lot of QB or WR experience....two areas where they've struggled in scouting. Niners had a lot of OL experience, but limited WR experience....an area where they have struggled.

    Pretty informal, but interesting to look at. If I have more time, I might do something a little more formal.

    Hmm, I don't know that they really take advantage of it.

    They don't really seem to have any more people in their front office than anyone else in the league.

    With the two guys at the head of the personnel tree of the organization, it's as if they are operating with less.
