    I'm thinking Jerry is just screwing with reds mind, saw style.

    He's making him fire all his assistants and get his face ripped off by nipple pins, only to fire him anyway when it's all over. It's the perfect crime.

    That's my hope at this point. Bring in or turn over OC duties and with Ryan being fired we have an opportunity to upgrade the DC and possibly switch back to the 4-3 depending on the DC.

    That is, unless Jerry dictates the defensive scheme BEFORE he hires the DC :)

    Zimmer didn't play to win. I have no problem with him being fired.

    Nothing. Payton and Zimmer have skins. How can you even compare the three?

    ........alot of us feel this way and as much as I hate Al Jr. and his "gm" skills or lack thereof it appears to me he is basically saying: "Ok Red, I forced Rob down your throat and the defense hasn't performed, so now we will go with your guy (Horton?) but the offense hasn't been up to snuff either, so I am going to bring in an OC as well like it or not."

    As someone said earlier, it's what Houston did with Kubiak who was teetering on the brink and not getting results: similar to situation with Red and Dallas. Will it work? Probably not if history is an indicator, but.....it's the way I read what he's doing right now.

    Yeah, but Kubiak's side of the ball was always good once he got a QB, it was the defense that was abysmal. Not the case here.

    Exactly and Kubiak is still a bad game manager. The Texans offense was never a problem. He just hired his buddies as D Coordinator and was foreced to hire Wade to save his tail.

    I think it was the right move... Might be time to go back to the Dallas traditional 4-3 defense.

    This all day.. We played a lot better zone with this guy coaching. Also what is the use of having all these man to man players if they are always playing 5-10 yards off the reciever.

    Ryan was the better coordinator this year. He got the most out of the least in Dallas. If Ryan is sent packing, Garrett should be too. This is BS.

    I remember when Zimmer was in Dallas people were crying to fire him. Now all of the sudden he's a good DC?

    People were crying to fire him while he was a good DC. That's nothing new. See: Payton, Sean; and Garrett, Jason.
