Good quote from a Cowboys fan regarding the termination of Ryan:

Rob Ryan wasn't the problem. You have 5 injuries to important members of the defense. So why was the Cowboys special team left to have Dez Bryant receiving punts, fumbling onside kicks and being on the receiving end of block punts?
Defense held the Giants to 17 points and Atlanta (scored 23 - 40 points in the weeks prior) to 19 points (4 field goals from 32 - 45 yard line and 1 run TD). Cowboys lost by less than 6 points all season except the Chicago and Seattle games. Romo throws 5 interceptions to Chicago and lets not mention the offense vs. Seattle. Both Washington loses were from offensive turnovers that resulted in interceptions and onside kick TD in the last 3 minutes of the game.
What can you say when Jerry Jones refers to the team as "We" and then all decisions with "I". Where is the accountability for the head coach with his famous quote of "IT'S A PROCESS". Cowboys don't do well in pressure situations (includes and most importantly game winning scoring drive in the last 2 minutes of the game) so why make a hasty decision in firing Rob Ryan just to prove that you are the GM/Owner. We already know that....and look what we have to put up with for the last decade.

I disagree. Bravado yes, but not sadistic.

Re: SAINTS HIRE RYAN AS DC

Brees is the playmaker on offense. who is the playmaker on D. There is a need to have that one disruptive player to go along with solid players to make a difference. We have not had that since Sharper. God forbid, Brees goes down, and our O will suck as bad as our D. Now How do we fix this without any $$$ to spend. The better players are going to be Tagged $$$$$$ and you never no what you are going to get via draft. We have tried to fix our D bringing in players that were done or cheap, and expected them to be coached up. The better Defenses have good coaching and more importantly Good players.

I can honestly say I feel bette about Ryan than Spags. I told a Dallas buddy at work that wasa good move for him when they hired Ryan. I still think he done ok for what he had. Aything we get is an improvement and with our offense we're a contender

On O, we need O line depth (potential starting LT) and healthy WR's.
I agree 100%, NT is now our most glaring need and our O has been on the back burner for a while now, I think Payton could find a WR in his sleep. I believe that Wilson and Gallett will be the best starting lbs. in the league if Ryan sticks them there, I would like to draft at least 1 inside lb. in the draft.

Spaggs had me scratching my head with not allowing Wilson to get more involved in his playbook. I really think Ryan will utilize this guy to his real potential. Everytime I think of Wilson, I recall him running down Ponder half way across the field and introducing Cam Newton to the turf.

I'm excited about this year !!!

Definitely so now. Ryan prefers the 2-gap 3-4 which requires the "fat-bastarrd" in the middle. Bunkley can play it but I don't think he can man the position all game long. He'll excell as part of a 2 or 3 man rotation at DT.

I don't think we have another run stuffin fat boy on the team. It would be a waste to play Hicks there when I think he could flat dominate at DE in a 3-4.

I think DT just moved up the priority list pretty significantly.

It's partly players, but it's mostly how you use them.

Spags was not playing the defense to it's strengths.

Someone here said it best - Square peg, round hole.
