    I fully expected it the defense never played consistently all season and looked like crap the final 2 games. Players didn't even know when to be on the field. It was total confusion all the time.

    Rumors are rumors, and then there's the hurdle of getting the offers.

    Stranger things have happened. People thought the same of Orton signing on as a backup at one point. Perhaps Lovie values the idea of being in the Dallas area. Or would like to take a year or two to select the right spot for him. I can see him passing on PHI, I don't think that looks like a pleasant job right now. San Diego, though, is a gem. But then, he has to get offered the gig before he can take it.

    I don't know if Lovie's our guy or not, but he makes a lot of sense given the quick move to fire Ryan, his reported fondness for Dallas, our glaring need to fix the takeaway problem in Dallas nobody ever seems to want to talk about, and the fact that we're positioned to transition over to a 4-3 again if that's the direction we decide to go in this offseason.

    I think the Lovie move makes less sense than others here seem to. He's a one and done guy. Now, you can argue Rob was too, but when we hired Rob I think it was done under the impression that we were a legitimate contender so it was kind of like, "oh well, we just need to get one ring out of him".

    It's clear that's not the case now. So I don't necessarily see how a guy who if he's successful here will undoubtedly be gone is really beneficial to our rebuilding..."process".

    as soon as the season was over JJ and JG both said that they havent discussed the personal yet, that meeting would be in a week .......this is a week later, I knew they were meeting this week.....RR should have known as well.....why leave town ?...why not wait a week?.....

    or maybe they werent sure they could get his replacement a week ago....they are running a franchise, he is sitting on a beach...they werent gonna shut everything down and fly to the Bahamas....they probably called him in , he pressed for a reason, and they ended up telling him over the phone.....

    Rob wont be the only coach that has yet to be fired around the league...staffs are gonna be getting shuffled for the next couple of months...

    This. This big time.

    For those pissed off at Ryan's departure, what games were you watching?? Obviously not the Dallas Cowboys. Or any good defensive team.

    Look at Seattle - SF - Washington - Baltimore. All aggressive defenses. Name one freaking play that Dallas showed any of their aggressiveness this year - just one.

    One indictment of the 2012 defense: no matter how well they played, if the offense scored, and Dallas needed a stop IT DID NOT HAPPEN. The D played to limit the damage. It did not play to hurt the other team. Dallas played the corners back, trying not to give up a big play rather than the pressure Ryan promised. Instead of exotic blitzes to confuse the O, Dallas rushed three men more times than the rest of the league combined. Hell, when facing rookie QBs, Ryan employed a max zone.

    I cannot believe the strum and drama here for the architect of a defense near the bottom of almost every defensive stat in existence.

    18th in yards.
    19th in passing yards.
    22nd in rushing yards.
    24th in points.
    29th in generating turnovers.
    Dead last in interceptions.

    And yet, you're shedding tears and renting hair for this.

    Y'all need an off season more than Dallas does.

    People were sure we'd lose Rob Ryan to a HC position after his first year. Two years later, we fire him early. You never know what's going to happen.

    A very good DC can make a huge impact on a team in short order. And we're not short on defensive talent. I'd happily take Lovie and some more turnovers from our secondary even if just for a year. Though I think there's a better than good chance we'd get at least two out of him, and maybe more.

    Yep, the Garrett apologist are at the height of hypocrisy.



    "2 yrs is not enough time to implement your scheme, your process"

    "Ryan had 2 yrs and couldnt get it done, not sad to see him go"

    Garrett's "process" is actually counted in dog years.

    Absolutely flabbergasted at this. Totally unexpected. But with Jerra, I suppose the utterly asinine should come as no surprise. I wasn't a big Ryan fan, but his D did very well considering all their injuries. Garrett has been a failure since 2007. I wonder which one of Jerra's "outside consultants" told him to do this?
