    What's funny is this is posted by a guy you know damn right well celebrated the pick at the time. He's never met a Cowboys move he didn't like when it's made.

    I hated it. Hated the Carr signing too. Was a horrific waste of resources on a position that doesn't matter when you get dominated along both sides of the line of scrimmage.

    People hate giving other people their damn respect on here it's so funny.

    Catch made a good call. He liked Herbert (as did I) last year and hey ho Rookie of the Year and he was carried by his running back and offensive line either

    Not sure about celebrating but I always give the player a chance before making a judgement.

    This times 1000.

    They spent big money and draft picks for Rob's scheme and then did a 180 for the defense.

    Man coverage with exotic schemes to zone based coordinators and finger painting level schemes.

    Carr may of never lived up to that deal even with Ryan, but his greatest strength was neutered by switching our philosophies on defense.

    Now, it's not to say Kiffin/Rod never ran man coverages, they did, but I honestly can't remember them running any sort of press to go with the corners strengths.

    He was injured when they drafted him.
    Dallas didn't do any legwork on him as they expected him to be out of range and when he fell they traded up but didn't have the info other teams did on Mo.

    Mo is probably a better player than given credit for but this was a front office failure.

    Yea broken wrist and/or hand.

    But you can't jam people and man cover them with a broken wrist.
    Then Ryan lined him up every practice against Dez who was a good 6'2" 225 and got him physically abused.

    *From my understanding he'd also coasted in by riding the vapor trail tail draft of that "other" L.S.U. d.b. who manned the other corner position* as that dude had made him look better than he was.o_O

    Jerry seems to have a thing for "giving a guy a chance" before firing him. So Ryan got all of an offseason personnel ammo to make his defense work.

    It's just so dumb. It's some weird moralism instead of smart business. When you're thinking about dumping a guy, that's exactly the time you *shouldn't* let him spend your resources. The effect of that spend lasts for years after he may be gone.

    Rob did the reasonable thing in his position - spent those resources on the apparently best available to make his defense work in the next season. Try to maximize a one year time horizon. If it doesn't work, the future years are not his problem. If anything, he ends up looking better if the future DC does worse.
