    someone saying positive things about a Cowboy coach? He must be drinking kool aid. :laugh2:

    I look forward to seeing Kiffin and Marinelli working with this defense and hopefully getting the most out of the players

    I'm of the opinion that Kiffin's defense is gonna be sound and disciplined. Boy, have we wanted those attributes around here for some time.

    Check the little video on the linked page.

    They interview the bus driver and he says that Jerry and Dan Snyder chatting it up back near the bar-looking area just the other night.

    Reasons to hope, but until it translates to winning games, it's just hype.

    Perhaps in the fashion of a double-take to get a second look at that wig.

    How do you turn heads before putting a product on the field?

    You whisper when you speak, and thus force people to try and hear what you are saying.

    I believe Kiffin combined with Marinelli will be a great help to the defense.

    I feel really good about our defense under Kiffin. I'm thrilled to move the team back to the 4-3

    The offense, on the other hand, doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Odd, considering how poorly he did in college, particularly when it came to conveying his scheme to the players, allegedly.

    It could be Kiffin had less talent to work with considering those sanctions USC had to go through.

    USC has only produced 3 first round draft picks from 2010 - 2012. Matt Kalil, Nick Perry, and Tyron Smith.

    In 2012 they only had 3 players enter the NFL vs 9 in 2011 and 7 in 2010. Of those players only 7 of those were defensive players. (7 of 19) Of those 7 only one, Nick Perry, was a 1st round selection and the other was a 2nd rounder - Taylor Mays.

    In contrast, in 2009 Brian Cushing, Clay Matthews, and Rey Maualuga all were selected in the 1st and 2nd rounds.

    Just look at the history and you can pretty easily see how the USC sanctions caused problems.

    AFAIK reports never came out that Kiffin didn't have the talent to work with, all the stories were that he was unable to effectively communicate his scheme to his players.

    Credit goes to Jason Garrett for having the wherewithal to look past the age issue and hire a great coach like Kiffin.

    Ok, just a minute here. A few years ago, our defense was being laughed at, made fun of by QB's though out the league. Good QB's said we were predictable; as the QB approached the LOS he knew exactly where to go to make good plays. They bought in new coaches to make us unpredictable. Now, are we going back to being predictable, with our blitzes be picked up each and every time, with holes wide enough to drive a pickup through? I am scared of "the old man" and the "old ways". Another wasted couple of years?
    Hope they prove me wrong, but I think that is about a 20% chance.
