They should of made him defensive coordinator instead of head coach to begin with. This teams a wreck. JJ could F-up a wet dream.

I can't believe they think THAT'S the problem.

They just truly have a lack of talent on the defensive side of the ball. Ware, Ratcliff and Newman (when he's healthy, but hasn't look good since) are the best talent they have over there. Ellis and James have fallen off this year and the defense is mediocre at best. They aren't a bad defensive team, just an average one.

The secondary on the other hand is an absolute train wreck. They are getting owned in every facet of the game.

He's already measuring Wade Phillips' office windows for drapes. He may be running this team in a week or two.

I was watching some espn or comcast the other day and it had a fact up on screen about head coaches that are also play callers. I think there are about 8-9, Zorn included. There are 0 head coaches that were defensive play callers, untill now.

I wonder how many there have ever been. Madden maybe? Seems like a old school thing if at all to me?

Why doesn't Jerry Jones just coach the team himself?

The Cowboys are slowly turning into the Raiders.

Someone mentioned the Raiders, but I see see the 2000 Redskins: a meddlesome owner, a locker-room full of undisciplined hired guns, and a spineless obsequious coach. Now all we need is for Eddie Murray to attempt a 55 yard FG and we will be right there.

For all the talk from Cowboys players of Wade making football fun again last year, it is times like this that you need a grimreaper like Parcells. He would not stand for any of the crap going on down there and, perhaps more importantly, he wouldn't be afraid to kick JJ the hell out of his office. For all of Synder's failures in his early days it appears that Gibbs taught him the appropriate way to be an owner while JJ learned nothing from a legend like Parcells.

Or it could be that Parcells had nothing to teach him. As a coach Parcells was certainly great, but he can't compare to Gibbs in terms of building a culture of accountability, trust, and patience. Parcells, to me, seems to have been primarily focused on himself. Whether it was bolting the Patriots during SB week, or bailing on the Bucs at the last minute.
