    Seems like an odd hire. I'm guessing he'll implement a 4-3 scheme given the personnel there. Having Brees & co. throwing up 35 points/game wont hurt....

    I can't see this being a good hire unless they go to a 3-4.

    Wow. That's going to be ugly unless they hit some homeruns in free agency.

    Throw enough money at Anthony Spencer and you have one of your OLBs anyway.

    I am not privy to the inner workings and why they let Ryan go. I have read the rumors, but they are just that for me. Rumors.

    I question the making wholesale changes on the defense when the offense was the major issue. But having said that.

    Ryan is not the worst. Nor was Phillips. Or any coach that has left here be it quit or fired.

    Except maybe Campo, and that was overblown since Ryan had Carr playing 8 yards off the receiver.

    It seems fans here are fickle, with little understanding, sometimes.

    If the offensive line was a major issue, and it caused the Seattle and Chicago
    massacres, then we grade on the curve.

    A pointless exercise, but so many made these ridiculous comments about how they seemed to get better because of some stat toward the end of the year. Especially a GM that will remain nameless.

    So Ryan had a patchwork defense that suffered injuries almost weekly, and did a patchwork job, and the second he is cut everyone piles on.

    If there were a coach of the year award just for Dallas, and the GM that will remain nameless had no vote, Ryan would have won that hand's down.

    Romo caused all that, bro! He lost all the games by himself, so that is why they fired Ryan. Hell, that is why they are firing all the other coaches! Just ask all the other posters that know.

    Ryan had the most injuries on any team of the Cowboys that I have ever witnessed, and at one time early on, the Cowboys were a top 5 defense.

    But, as you say, as soon as some player/coach is gone, he was the worse player/coach to ever come to the Cowboys.

    But, Romo is the only one that gets the credit for a losing season.

    Keep up, bro. ;)

    Oh, and it's Romo's fault for getting rid of some players.

    I have yet to understand the edict of hijacking threads or comments with the negative when the other side makes this sort of response.

    5, I agree, but very little with your premise. There are some that have soured on Romo. There are others, and I am one, that believe he is asked to do too much.

    But really, did anything in my post suggest anything about Romo? No.

    Yet you just did what the negative guys do and not one word will be written about it.

    Not calling you out. Because I always enjoy trading posts with you. Just illuminating the terrain we currently find ourselves on.

    I didn't mean to make you mad. And the only reason that I brought Romo into the convo...well, you know.
    :eek::

    You didn't make me mad at all. I am just pointing out that this is a two way street. Sorry I used you as an example.

    I thought we played a lot of pretty good defense this year.

    How many buffets has Ryan visited during his 5 minutes of unemployment?

    Ryan wasn't THE problem in Dallas this year, or even the last two years, but he certainly was part of it. Injuries were certainly a limiting factor this year, but not last year.
