    Except that the real problem is not enough takeaways, and too many giveaways. And not necessarily the GM.

    Tedy Bruschi said that Ryan's scheme would take about 2 years for the players to fully learn and be able to execute it the way it should be run.

    The real issue of the problem is that Ryan's scheme isn't something that a street FA can come in and digest and execute it a week later.

    Despite what people think they believe, Ernie Sims was not good at all. He routinely blew assignments that led to TDs or big plays. When faced with critical injuries you need players to come in and play a role and we simply couldn't get that because the scheme was too complex for the FAs to handle so it had to be simplified in certain packages.

    I believe the change to the 4-3 was done because it's harder these days to find a blue chip type 5 tech player in the draft.

    By no means was the failure of the 2012 season all on Ryan's hands though, everyone to include the ST units all had their problems throughout the year.

    Wasn't one of the complaints about Wade's scheme was that it was too complex?

    The real problem is players not being good enough and coaches set up to fail.

    That's the GM. And his son.

    In other Cowboys news insiders have found out that we have stupid football players that have trouble learning any new system. ;)

    In two years the issue will be that our schemes were too simple and the opposing QB could call out our D ... See Jon Kitna.

    That was under Wade in...2007? I don't recall the issue being the schemes were simple. The issue on defense was that Bradie James didn't know where he was on defense.

    It was our offense that was simple, according to the Ravens. And that we haven't change. Much to everyone's total, abject dismay.

    Well then there is nothing to do about it because Stephen Jones is only 49. That's 20 more years of one or the other of them more than likely. Might as well just give up, eh?

    Bradie James and Roy Williams couldn't run and Jacques Reeves was not not very good.

    Garrett owned both the Ravens and Dick LeBeau this year. It was pretty much the only bright spot in what was otherwise the worst offensive performance of Tony Romo's career.

    You think this was Tony's worst year?

    I'm not sure I would agree. Perhaps the numbers say so but watching any single game where he got next to nothing in the rushing department and borderline point-shaving type performances on the OL, I think he did pretty well actually.
