Jerry Jones: Rob Ryan’s defense is “too much scheme”

Jerry Jones: Rob Ryan’s defense is “too much scheme” | ProFootballTalk
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says Rob Ryan, who was fired as defensive coordinator last month, ran a defense that was too complicated.

Jones said at the Scouting Combine that the decision to fire Ryan and hire Monte Kiffin was made in large part because Dallas needs a simpler defense with a slimmer playbook.

“Where we fundamentally came down with Rob is that his philosophy is about multiple scheme,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “I think you have to skinny it down. Philosophically, I don’t think Rob believes in that.”

Jones said he expressed his concerns to Ryan a year ago, and that Ryan did try to simplify his defense — just not enough to satisfy Jones.

“I think Rob will tell you we had long visits about this in the off-season last year that there was too much scheme. He tried to cut it back and he did skinny it back, but it’s still a lot,” Jones said. “We just didn’t feel like at the end of the day Rob could skinny it back enough to our satisfaction that we could make plays.”

So Kiffin will come in and run a defense that’s simpler. And maybe better.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

Re: Jerry Jones: Rob Ryan’s defense is “too much scheme”

From what I remember, Spags system was very cerebral and we saw how that worked out. I assume you could interchange 'scheme' with 'cerbral'. Heres to hoping our D responds much better to Ryan than Spags. I think they will...

Re: Jerry Jones: Rob Ryan’s defense is “too much scheme”

Translation: I didn't understand what they said when I hung out in the locker room, and I liked my head coach's personality better, he was friendlier and used words I could understand, and let me suggest plays and players, so when we lost to the Giants at home and I got embarrassed, I knew it had to be my defensive coordinator's fault, so I fired him....

That's is what I was thinking also SaintsBro!

Oh I'm sorry Jerry; I didn't know you were a head coach! Man, I never thought the day would come that I would say this; but I am greatful we have Tom.

So true.........
and we have the Sean Payton factor..........not worried.

One thing in his defense (of the worse defense in history), Spags was out on his own without a head coach.

Re: Jerry Jones: Rob Ryan’s defense is “too much scheme”

Half his starters and several key subs were out by the end of the year and he still put the hurt on teams. They won't git rid of the real problem (Jones' man-crush on Romo) so they make crap up.

Booger's tough. We play them, so circle the date.
