    Kiffen talked to Garrett and Jones at Valley Ranch today, believes Dware can play end. Whats true is you won't see him in coverage anymore

    Per a source, if Kiffen comes to Dallas..he will not force cover 2 scheme in secondary..will let Carr and Claiborne do what they do best

    Cowboys believe in Kiffen's NFL track record not his struggles in the college game..two different games.

    Jerry Jones wanted to make a splash hire..Monte Kiffen would fit the bill if this was 2003 not 2013.

    Monte Kiffin is in Dallas right now to interview for the Cowboys DC opening. It doesn't appear club will be able to speak to Ray Horton.

    Do people actually doubt Ware can play DE?

    They shouldn't, but I will say I wanted him to set the NFL record for sacks by a LB.

    The ageism against a Kiffin hire amuses me. Some people want Crennel. He's 65. Tom Coughlin 66. Are they too old?

    You know this is funny but im seriously thinking that jerry fired Ryan when he was drunk and watching some old game film and by the time he came back to his senses he realized he has to do something so hes scrambling now.

    This is not madden jerry.

    well washington sure ate him up in which he basically played re even though i give him the benifit of the doubt for being injured .
    My issue with ware is his containment , he over-pursues alot which hurts us so much in the run game .

    How far away is he? I'm guessing he's within 20.

    Mostly Pac 12 Offenses draw recruits and Defenses don't, and specifically Oregon.

    I was at his last game with USC when AZ beat them here in Tucson. They were aggressive and in the Pac 12 you have to almost play softer. I hate that.

    Or maybe he adjusts the D to the players strengths. That would be shocking I know! Maybe that is why he invented the cover 2 in the first place. Hugh Hefner is older and nobody says he can't keep up with the youngsters. Just ask his wife :)

    I don't necessarily think he's too old, but at that age I think those six or seven years can make a big difference.
