    Just looked up Arizona's defensive stats. Horton ran a 3-4.

    Total yards: 12th (Dallas 17th)
    Points allowed: 17th (Dallas 24th)
    Sacks: T-11th (Dallas T-20th)
    Interceptions: 2nd (Dallas T-31st)
    Forced Fumbles: T-21st (Dallas T-17th)
    Turnovers forced: 33 total for AZ (16 total for Dallas)

    Takeaways: 4th (Dallas T-28th)

    Horton would be an upgrade, IMO. Him or Lovie would make sense, but if you don't get one of those guys, you're getting just a guy or a retread.

    Anyone know Dom Capers' contract situation? Horton would be okay too, but seems like he would always be a danger of leaving.

    True, but the number that stands out to me are the takeaways. 4th in the NFL - that's coached.

    I think we probably waited a week to make sure we had a guy in our back pocket. This is a plum DC position right now, so any qualified guy not in the HC hunt would consider it.

    Gus Bradley, Seattle. Darkhorse in my opinion.


    I love that defense.

    I'd be fine with Horton or Lovie Smith

    Ask if he can bring his safeties with him. :)

    Something tells me we're making the move for an available coach. Otherwise, we'd likely wait until we could be sure we'd be able to get the guy we want.

    I hope but I am far from sure. This could be Jones making changes for the sake of making changes. We shall see I guess.

    That's not really Jerry's MO. He's not precipitous, at least when his ego's not directly involved. He collects his data and then makes bold decisions. We're not going to engender ill-will with the players (who all loved Rob) by letting the guy go before we need to without a replacement in our back pocket. Not before the end of the season when we can't even talk to so many good defensive coaches yet.

    The Cowboys interest in Ray Horton two years ago was to be secondary coach, not DC. Could be option this time but he wants a HC job.

    You made two mistakes. 1st was thinking anything the FO does is going to make any sense. 2nd is thinking the FO had a plan in mind when it performed an action of any sort.
