    Sheesh, that's embarrassing. Bush league journalism right there. Not to mention his terrible take on the D-line and their new responsibilities in the 4-3. *facepalm*

    You don't.

    He went from ESPN to the NationalFootballPost. That can't be a career advancement.

    Lenny P is a lot like Goose. Great at cultivating front office sources that he's developed over a gazillion years as a gumshoe beatwriter and regurgitating fed info, but when he tries to wade into analysis ... particularly analytics ... it brings epic lulz.

    I do expect teams to test our interior run defense, but really ... how many good power run teams are in the NFL currently? San Francisco..... and San Francisco. What few teams run the ball well typically run a outside zone base.

    This is what editors and proofreaders are for I guess.

    WOW!
    I guess they don't have fact checkers anymore.
    But to write an entire article based on having you data totally upside down...well, I have never seen a blunder that big anywhere.

    That would require very good to excellent d-line play. I have serious questions regarding the switch. We need pressure. It is a long season. Our studs that are aging need more relief.

    I know I'm late to the party here but can't help but wonder if this was a result of being eager to pile onto "anything Cowboys is negative" bandwagon. Things like Spencer being bad against the run seems like pretty basic stuff to miss on. Sounds like he read an article then wrote his article based on how he remembered it.

    thanks for all the feedback, painful as it's been. apologies to readers, and monte kiffin, for error. clearly misread the order of some nfl stats, and that's inexcusable. the point remains the same -- that monte's units often are far better than some of the stats -- but the argument gets weakened some by the errors. will do far better. thanks to the readers for being so alert. and for clearly proofing more carefully than i did. LP

    Funny he still tried to justify his lame excuse for journalism...
