    Best move of the offseason. Will elevate his unit to the next level. Heir apparent to move up to the coordinator job. Maybe even head coach down the line.

    All those are things that have been said about new Dallas Cowboys secondary coach Kris Richard. When his hiring was announced, people were absolutely giddy over what they thought he meant for the team. (And by “people”, I also mean me.) But after the first preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers, the shine has faded a bit for Richard as the defense, particularly the secondary, did a disappointing imitation of Swiss cheese at the end of the first half and for much of the fourth quarter. But, if you want to just base things on that game (and it is always perilous to use that as your basis for much of anything), every one of those glowing phrases to start this article could be applied to another first-year assistant: Wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal. While the secondary was having plenty of issues and seems to deserve the most blame for letting the 49ers score at the ends of both halves, the wide receivers ensured no one would be lamenting the absence of Dez Bryant - at least for the moment

    Week 2 will provide a little more for us to go on, can one coach improve on a good performance and one coach correct the mistakes of a bad one. I think both units will improve on a weekly basis.

    Right now i will be content to see much improvement by our wr's in route running and gaining separation. Something necessary to take the heat off zeke and the running game.

    Good article wm. Most of our receivers did indeed appear to be doing a good job, from the first string to the last. I agree with the article, it would seem that Sanjay Lal has successfully brought some discipline to our receiving corps! :thumbup:(for a change)

    I'll hold my judgement for week 1. I am optimistic for this season, however.

    Good read, though buddy! I'm not worried about the secondary, really. I'm more concerned about losing Hitchens.

    His other teams didn't think he was this good. The biggest impact isn't Lal himself it's that Garret/linehan decided to teach all receivers all spots and not pigeon hole guys into limited roles.

    Well compared to Garrett/Linehan he is a breath of fresh air.

    The problem all this years has been Garrett/Linehan. Guess who pigeon holed them into limited roles in the first place?

    Love what Lal is doing but the best move was JG convincing Kris (creator of the LOB) to be a secondary coach when Kris clearly had DC jobs he could have taken if he wanted if not HC jobs. Especially when you consider that Rod has been entertaining retiring the last couple of years.

    49ers weren't that good last year, don't see this game had a lot you can "hang your hat on".

    Third preseason game the starters should play a half at least, that will be a bigger read on the team...
