The 5 mins are up! Rob Ryan hired by Rams

+

Been a rumour for a while but now confirmed...

Saints fire DC Steve Spagnuolo - and move to 3-4!

2

Interesting that they are shifting to a 3-4 - especially with Carolina in their division. And if I was the NYG's I would be seriously thinking about re-hiring Spagnuolo - their D hasn't been the same since he left.

Browns hire Ray Horton defensive coordinator - Yahoo! Sports

+

Horton gone to the Browns. Suggests that the Cowboys could have got him if they wanted him - 7 years with the Steelers, good at developing DBs. Clearly they think 4-3 is the way to go now, 3-4 never did the job.

Incl our own Doug Free and Nnamdi. Through in Kevin Kolb and the NFC East is well represented...

Former NFL QB Leaf taken to prison - Yahoo! Sports

Surprised they didn't put "former Dallas Cowboys" QB in the headline.... What a fall for #2 pick in the draft, that some thought might be better than Manning....

Confirmed. Definitely going to have to figure out how to defend the read-option now...

The Buccaneers finished in the top 10 in total defense 11 times in 13 years under Kiffin and had streaks of 69 straight games with a sack and 54 with at least one turnover during that stretch. Tampa had 31 interceptions the year it won the Super Bowl, nine more than the Cowboys have the past two seasons combined.

"I don’t think there’s anybody else who could," Lee said. "I think he’s an unbelievable coach. I think we’ve responded to him, and he’s made us better football players, better people. If you watch us, I think we play with a certain relentless spirit. But we need to find a way to cut mistakes and build on our mistakes so we never make those mistakes again and we can win those close ballgames."

Players Voice Support Of Garrett After Disappointing End

In other news, Garrett doesn't anticipate giving up play-calling duties next season. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier Monday that the Cowboys were looking to bring in a coach who could take a responsibility off Garrett's plate. Garrett doesn't see it happening. "I would certainly anticipate the status quo from that standpoint," Garrett said.

Is Ronald Leary a future starter?

Cowboys just protected him - elevated to the active roster.

PFF: Saints @ Cowboys, Week 16 | Smith shines

+

Tyron that is, not Will.... [Will Smith] was thoroughly dominated by Tyron Smith (+4.0), who, after a phenomenal rookie season at right tackle, has had a rough transition to left tackle. The second-year player was so good that he notched his second clean sheet this season, and the first came in a game in which he played only 16 snaps. Maybe Tyron is on his way to being a star at left tackle...

Spencer wants to stay with Cowboys, special LB group

I hope he does. I know DC have some cap issues but Spencer is one we should keep.

Modern Football playcalling - "Packaged Plays"

+

Great outline of "packaged plays" - plays designed to be either run or pass within the play, not beforehand. Like option football on a grand scale. This guy's book "Smart Football" I reckon would appeal to a lot of BTB fans.

Brandon Carr: Knowing Todd Haley helped me on pick [Video]

+

Nice when the ex-coach dynamic works in our favour. I still remember the first time Payton's Saints came to Dallas.... And see what Rivera's Panthers did to his prior employer (SD)

Cowboys use play-action the least of any team

3

I understand to some degree given how our running game has sucked, but this includes games with Murray. Seems excessively low when Romo has the 6th best grade on these passes....

Mendenhall suspended by Steelers

2

One less Steeler back to deal with. And I recall many people calling for the Boys to draft him....

Bryant's finger broken, not torn ligaments

+

If its a clean break, my layman's understanding is that is probably better long term than ligament damage. But still means there is a risk he is gone for the balance of the year if it needs surgery to repair.

Cowboys ranked 5th most injured team

+

Colts ranked first - which makes their season even more surprising. Plus their headcoach...

Glum Giants plot strong stretch run

+

Particularly like this bit: New Orleans (5-7) is on tap at MetLife Stadium on Sunday and Saints quarterback Drew Brees has done a number on New York over the past few seasons. After that, the Giants have road games at Atlanta (11-1) and Baltimore (9-3) before returning home to face Philadelphia in what might be embattled Eagles coach Andy Reid's final game. Likely live games for the first 3 teams and a big farewell for Andy.

No giving up: one positive of the Garrett era

1

One thing you can say for JG's team: they have not given up in any game this season. That is something to build on.

Cowboys sign Patriots DB

2

One who helped them beat the Ravens in the Championship game last season.

Dez avoids prosecution

+

"Ready to focus on Football" - (you mean he wasn't?!) Apparently he hit his mother in the face with a baseball cap. You never want to make light of family violence, but it seems to me if this hadn't been Dez this would have been dropped a long time ago.

Is the Dallas Defence showing an intimidation factor?

The Dallas defence in recent years has not had an intimidation factor - no-one was afraid of it. The personality of the team to some degree being set by its star, Mr Nice Guy himself, Demarcus...

Why Jason Garrett must get at least 2 more seasons

I am extremely disappointed by how the season has turned out so far. The team has performed very poorly in areas I was convinced Garrett would improve - errors, penalties, basic execution. H...
