    $10.5M guaranteed. About a million less than what Dallas wasted on Spencer last year.

    I've never liked Jim Haslett either. He's never really been more than an average defensive coordinator at best.
    Knowing how things work with the Skins, he'll somehow do well next year, get a long term contract, and Jay Gruden will forget everything he knows about offensive football.

    One thing I will say, the 3-4 / 4-3 thing, does it matter us much, if we'll mainly be using him on 3rd down, in 4 man sets?
    When he played in the 3-4, did the Cowboys ever use him in 4 man sets in passing situations? The Skins have signed so many defensive lineman I think he's going to be in a rotation.

    Hope no one got hurt. I'll gladly donate money to the red cross though if something exciting happens during FA in Dallas.....

    So true. However, I really hope there is a cultural change. Its been a while since we had real change come to the Cowboys.

    Hatcher is a late bloomer. Also, playing during a contract year plus playing in a position that suites him (4-3) helps. I doubt you'll see him produce those numbers in a 3-4.

    He won't produce double digit sacks,he needs to push the pocket and be a presence in the middle, to free up our outside pass rushers (Orakpo and Kerrigan). 3-4 defensive ends don't usually have great stats, but if there's no increase in sacks with the guys on the outside, then that'll be a problem.

    So you like having nobody starting on your defensive line? Hey, I'm loving the culture change just as much as you are.

    It's a good thing, because for that scratch he will be an epic failure in your scheme. Count on it.

    Hope you're referring to the Skins, but given your background my guess is you wanted Dallas to actually pay that crazy amount.
    Not sure though.

    Please elaborate, how will he be a failure in our scheme? What specifically, will the Redskins do that does not play to his strengths?
