    Yes, since 73 with only ONE defensive coordinator gig previous to this with an average ranking of a 10th ranked defense. Amazing.

    I tried to get my girl to watch that terrific Kubrick film.
    Oil and water it was.

    She didn't have the yarbles, the yellow jelly thou...

    You're a smart one.
    Maybe you should apply to be a GM of a football team.
    I bet you tell all your friends how you could run a team better than the pro's.

    I guess the respect he's garnered is fake- a nicety because he's a Vietnam Vet. Certainly not as coach.
    Why the heck is he even still in the league, making tons of money and maintaining massive respect from both players and coaches from around the league? From multiple teams?

    You know better, 17years. I see that now. Mucho respectado.
    Nobody can pull the wool over your eyes, that's for sure.
    I'll know better, oh guru of crap remarks.

    Yeah, I am sure his players in Detroit respected the hell out of him as they set the record for LOLs in a season and finished with a .300 winning percentage. You cant refute anything I said. 1 previous gig as a coordinator with an average of a 10th ranked defense, and you throw around words like "respect" like they mean anything.

    You are wasting your effort anyway, he will be put out to pasture with the rest of the gaggle of career losers that Jerry has masterfully collected. Oh but he yells and stuff! Cool!!!

    What can I say? 1 DC gig prior and who knows how he got an HC job, but he did fail miserably at it. Lovie hiring him in the first place and wanting him again tells me more about what a poor HC Smith is than anything now.
    I defer to your knowledge and wisdom.
    I give.
    You know it all, my friend.
    The guy is a bum. He has no place in the League.
    I hate the guy now.
    All I can say is this really stinks for the Cowboys D going into 2014 having to drag this anchor with them.
    Ah well. Maybe the plethora of talent they've had on the line and the back end will pull them through.
    Thank goodness everyone will disappear next year and will be replaced by people, hopefully, you recommend.

    Good show, 17years.
    I've learned a lesson this day.

    Jones would hire whomever one of his trusted cronies recommended.

    Well like I said, I'm happy Marinelli is sticking around in a real role, but they both could have had that defense in a much better position. The takeaway numbers are encouraging, but it's as if Kiffin forgot to coach anything else

    I can certainly understand why you feel that way. It was one of the poorest defenses I've ever seen wearing the Star. I didn't see the 60-63 teams. The 89 team sucked. I just think they did a great job with the tools they had. We didn't get enough pressure but the no names + Hatcher did ok.

    You're right. It would have been more accurate for me to have said there's a chance he'll build a good defense in Dallas. He can if he gets the talent he needs. If he doesn't get that, no DC alive can do it all with smoke and mirrors.

    That's a great point about how telling it is to learn Stephen defers to Jerry.

    And that the DL coach deferred to the coordinator.

    We were all in the dark about that until right now.
