Rob Ryan will get more than 1 year... And while I expect some improvement(mid 20's is about right), no way will it be totally fixed this year...

Total scheme change, working right along side Payton... He'll get more than one year...

Re: If Rob Ryan fails to fix the Defense Who's Next DC?

Wow...

I didn't like the Ryan hiring either, but...

Need another draft with a commitment to drafting outside linebackers in two of the first three rounds (not two of the first three picks, but two picks in the first 2-1/2 rounds, among first 80 picks)...

Gotta get the Safeties transitioned; appears Harper's time is set with the Vacarro pick; Jenkins has to show he can ball when in the right system (50/50)...

Ryan will probably be gone anyways if the defense goes from historically last to middle of the pack - the NFL is nepotistic and he's his father's son and old money owners like hiring those types...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Re: If Rob Ryan fails to fix the Defense Who's Next DC?

I just haven't really seen much of a change. We still have the same guys with the exception of like 2-3 new guys. Rob has never had a great defense any where he has been his defenses have always been middle of the pack crew. He's never had a team in the playoffs which may come to hurt us come that time of the yr. I just don't wanna see our team wasted having one of the best offenses if not best. we could be a dynasty team if we had a decent def.

He's never had an offense that could hang 40+ either... And I do believe that the Cowboys had a Top 10 defense last year until injuries decimated. We'll never have better than a middle of the pack defense(we're more offense oriented), but all we need is middle of the pack and we're easily in the playoffs

Re: If Rob Ryan fails to fix the Defense Who's Next DC?

Its easy to blame the dc when the defense is not good and in some instances it is be it scheme or what have u. Then there are times when the personnel just isn't talented or too old or too young whatever. No matter how hard u try u cant polish a turd.

im glad we have a offense that can put 40+ but wouldn't it be refreshing to know if we don't we have a shot at winning as it stands no we can score 40+ and still lose thats a lot of pressure to put on drew every week
