    For the love of God, if you needed any other proof that this hire is solely the product of Jerry and his drinking buddies with no input from the head coach

    Well, here it is...

    Since this is Lace's idea, this is a great quote.

    Regardless of any goofy quotes from Lacewell, I do think it was a good move by the Cowboys.

    Landry was certainly a good coach, but most of this board would have wanted him run out of town shortly after his tenure began. Prior to receiving the lable of next years champions his teams didn't fair very well. I'd vote Jimmy as the best hire.

    Scariest part of this is we know know who Jerry turns to for advise. This franchise is doomed till Jerry goes toes up.

    Thank you.

    I always lose confidence when Larry Lacewell agrees with something. :banghead:

    Uh, I'm pretty sure he was referring to the Cowboys under Jerry Jones, but okay, lol.

    I agree, but the way Jerry does this stuff is ridiculous. Jason looks so weak right now.

    It looks like Jerry paving the way to bring Gruden in. He should let Garrett lead the way, not him.

    Uninformed as usual. Look at the Gruden news on the FZ I posted. I was too, now I know better.

    Yeah sure it was. Was that from your source that said Ryan was a lock to stay?

    None of my sources said Ryan was a lock to stay. I said I'd be shocked if he was gone due to the injuries the D suffered, and I was.

    I personally would like a definite answer on who really hired and/or thought of Kiffin. Was it Stephen, Jason, or Jerry? Was it Larry Lacewell who planted the seed into the Dallas Front Office's ear?

    If Kiffin fails I want heads to Roll but if Kiffin succeeds I want that person to be praised for the smart choice.

    Hopefully, "one of the lousy beat writers" can ask Jerry, Jason, or Stephen for the origins of the Kiffin's hiring at the next press conference.

    I dont mind Kiffin he's a great defensive mind, I just don't like us moving to the 4-3

    My theory on the two defensive coordinator's under Garrett is that they were his hires but Jerry sets some parameters. I don't think Garrett was ever wedded to the 3-4 and, in fact, the 4-3 may have always been his defense of choice. However, given our personnel at the time Garrett was hired as head coach, Jerry probably stipulated that we retain the 3-4 and needed to hire a DC with that background.

    As the defense evolved under Ryan, there were more 4-3 looks and we accumulated more players that could function in that defense. So with this hire, Jerry is more comfortable with moving to a 4-3 since it now doesn't require a significant turnover in personel to transition to that defense.

    The parameters that I think Jerry established with this hire are experience and a track record of generating turnovers. I think Jerry is going to surround Garrett this year with more experienced coaches on both defense and offense. Also, the days of the head coach/coordinator are over.
