    Dallas has replaced almost everyone on the coaching staff amd still has a few holes remaining.
    RB coach
    TE coach
    OL coach(unless Callahan will continue as well as calling plays)

    Any news that I haven't heard about these coaching positions.

    Guys:

    I don't understand the hold up on hiring new coaches. There is something really strange going on or they are waiting for someone to become available.

    I have trouble speculating that they are waiting on someone from the SB teams, but I guess that is a possibility. Maybe someone from SF to tweak the running game (I heard they have a diverse running game).

    One other possibility: Jerry and JG are fussing about play calling or can't agree on which coaches to hire. Example: Jerry backed off on insistance that JG will not call plays.

    Anybody heard anything?

    We will get a few players over the next few months, people need to just forget about and shut up about needing a new GM. It won't ever happen.

    My understanding is that the random "It's Jerry" related posts are going to be banned.

    I heard that it takes time to hire the right coaches, and that just paying the biggest name out there isn't exactly the best way to go. there is zero rush to fill these spots, since we don't have any football related activities for awhile. Best to take the time to find the right coach that fits the team, and what JG wants to do, then to just sign up the first guy who interviews because the fans are getting restless..

    I think it's league practice that all NFL activities are generally on hold until after the Superbowl. Which is why several team still have coordinator positions sitting unfilled (Eagles, Saints, Rams), much less position coaches.

    Last I heard, that was a premature twitter report.

    Or we may be hiring college coaches for the open positions and they want to wait to announce it until after national signing day (feb 6th) out of respect for the new coaches college so they can get their recruits to sign on the bottom line before the coach bails for a new job?

    Ridiculous.

    And if I get banned for that I'll go to one of the other 10 forums to discuss my favorite team.

    This is America don't tell me how I'm supposed to feel or react.

    I think that was speculation only.

    From what I could make out, it definitely wasn't firm.

    I could see this as a possibility.

    Feeling, reacting, and acting are 3 different things, and I think the moderators do have a right to tell you how to act on this site.

    The Super Bowl teams and the college signing day thoughts are both valid.

    However, I wonder if Garrett is having a hard time filling out his staff due to his limited coaching experience. Most coaches draw from guys they have worked with in the past. Garrett has only worked on two staffs and then you are dipping into teams he played on (I'm sure that is how he found Jimmy Robinson).

    I guess maybe they could hire Art Valero from Tennessee for RBs or TEs. I suppose that would be a promotion over assistant OL coach.

    Socialist. J/k. I get the point of keeping religious, political, and personal talks off the site - always have, big reason why I choose to post here.

    But don't tell people how they're supposed to post. It's not just CZ where 80% of fans are miserable and cynical - 17 years of futility will do that, especially with such a willingly polarizing figure like Mr. Jones.
