    Sadly, that's the hand we've been dealt.

    Makes no difference as to the why Rob was fired. Seldom in the NFL are HC or organizations going to rip a guy after they fire him. They will compliment them and talk about a new direction or something of that nature. People getting worked up over the reason why must not follow the NFL closely. :laugh2:

    I don't blame Ryan for the season but I can't say I was impressed by him either. I expected a much more aggressive defense and that is not what he delivered.

    :D

    As cynical as I can be at times, I don't see this being SJ's call.

    IIRC, Broaddus discussed on the radio really questioning Ryan's schemes and tactics back in November. You know he just didn't get that all on his own and that the team scouts were giving him this information that they weren't happy with Ryan's schemes.

    I think Jerry and Co. are trying to be polite with Rob as they should be. And I still like Rob, but I feel that Kiffin is a better D-C (so is Marinelli). And I think they had a problem with his schemes in general and they were also looking to go with something simpler to combat their concerns with less practice time set forth by the CBA causing more injuries.

    nope

    the "Dallas Hive Mind" made this decision (just like many others) where everyone makes decisions but no one is responsible for said decisions

    Which bee in that hive would you rather see making the calls?

    The organization is responsible for the decision, Rob did not fire himself. Jerry, Stephen and Garrett are responsible as they make up the top of the organization.

    Bravo, Stephen.

    In Landry's glory years, smash-mouth football did him well.
    Then he got into the finesse years, the flex, blah-blah-blah. He quickly learned that fundamental, tough defense (not reacting to what the opposing team serves us, thus wagging the dog) wins games, not defensive witchcraft or high powered schemes with voluminous playbook (like Ryan brought with him).

    When the opposing team passes, knock down the ball or hit the QB and/or the receiver hard. When the opposing team runs, stop it there. Simple. Fundamental. Things that never go out of style.

    I want smash-mouth football like Jimma had, not the intellectual schemes that Ryan's not-so-intelligent players could not learn quickly enough.

    And that's the mentality that has to change in order for this team to really change.

    Oh, the head coach will be held accountable eventually, but until there's accountability in the front office we're just spinning our wheels.

    I saw this same article, or atleast these same quotes being attributed to JERRY Jones today. Wonder who actually said it? Lazy reporters.
