Bryan Broddaues does a good job of breaking down Dez improvements in route recognition.

Given how poorly he runs routes, I can almost hear these thoughts in his head:

Run forward.
Stop.
Turn left/right.
Stop.
Run to middle of field.
Wait for football.
Catch football.
Annihilate the defender trying to "cover" me.
Find end zone.
Score.
TD!

Wouldn't be petty at all. It's business just like with Ryan. One of Jerry's problems is loyalty. Joe should have in fact been fired immediately following the Hawks game.


I don't think the situation is similar to Ryan at all.

Ryan wasn't interviewing for a HC vacancy, Coach Joe was.
Ryan's replacement was being targeted for another vacancy, based on what I know we don't even have a short list to replace Coach Joe yet.

I would have been disappointed to see him fired while he is trying to get a promotion - and I am pretty sure I am the harshest critic of Coach Joe here.

Larry Lacewell denies claims that Jerry consulted with him or contacted him at any time.

Lacewell needs to stay away from this team and focus more on things like tapioca pudding, prunes, cottage cheese, grapefruit, and making sure the cable is up and running at the old age home.

Remind everyone that I was a kid when Dante Hall was awesome, make X sign with arms.

TO7, implying Jimmy Robinson has anything to do with Cole Beasley's continued awesomesauce approach to football is like implying Cole Beasley didn't help improve Dez's route running or Dwayne Harris's ability to catch the ball and be where he's supposed to be; namely, heresy. Its not a conincidence that none of Jimmy Robinson's so called "contributions" to the WR core didn't really take hold until Cole came around. And don't wave that Laurent Robinson malarkey in my face, he clearly saw the Chosen one coming out of college and knew he had to play all out to get one last pay day before he was rendered completely useless.

What'd Lacewell do to earn your ire? He was one of the key proponents that over rode Parcells when it came to drafting Ware. I'm sure his scouting missed on things here and there but who hasn't?

The Kansas City Chiefs appear to have their special teams coach. Per a report from Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times and Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Dave Toub is expected to join the Chiefs. Toub is coming from the Chicago Bears where he was the special teams coordinator.


Offseason keeps getting better and better. Very Happy



Toub was available? And, we're stuck with Coach D. /smh

Mike Fisher declared emphatically yesterday that Jerry consulted with Switzer and Lacewell before making the Kiffin hire. He also stated that Lacewell is the one telling Jerry to re-sign Spencer, and it would give the Cowboys the best DE tandem in the league.

Might want to tap the brakes on the old man jokes as we just hired a 73 year old to be DC.

Someone needs to tell Jerry and Lacewell what our cap situation would look like by re-signing Spencer.

Also, you can't blame Robinson for Ogletree being an idiot. Dez drastically improved as the season went along, gotta give credit to Robinson for his development.

Cowboys 2013 Roster Talk, Part 2: How Long Do You Ride With Tony Romo?

Pretty good write up from Drummond. Touches on a few areas that, I believe, are really going to set the bar for the next season or two.


Quote:
Romo has one-year remaining on his contract, 2013. In '13 he is scheduled to cost an astronomical $16.8 million against the salary cap, $11.5m in salary and $5.3m in prorated signing bonus. With Dallas already being almost $20 million above the 2013 cap with 44 of 53 roster spots accounted for, you can see where this is headed.


Maybe this was brought up before, and I missed it. I knew Dallas was up against it, but didn't realize they were that far in the red.

Quote:
You cannot run a front office on blind faith and circumstantial support. Well, you can... but you shouldn't.

Does the Cowboys front office allow these dire financial straits to dictate how their future plays out? One of the many complaints about the Dallas front office is their bad financial planning; giving contracts to players that will no longer be useful during the latter parts of the deal. It has stung them time and time again. It's the reason we signed guys like Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings instead of Carl Nicks or Ben Grubbs last Spring. Read "Part 1" about the impact of dead money. They have to stop doing the "restructure shuffle." Have to.


Have to agree with the bolded as well. That said, how does Dallas get through the off season w/o doing this?

Quote:
My suggestion? Do whatever you have to in order to be under the cap WITHOUT extending Romo if at all possible. Next year, slap the franchise tag on him and make him one of the five highest paid QBs in the game. By the end of 2014, you'll hopefully have a successor in place. You also have the option of franchising him again in 2015. That gives a one to three-year window to see if the young player you drafted has what it takes to move into the big chair. It also gives you time to decide on offering him a three or four-year deal should you achieve ultimate success with him at the helm.


This seems like a decent idea, should Romo go for, which I would consider a longshot at best.

Mike Fisher may have his sources or may just be spreading rumors but when Lacewell personally says he hasn't talked with Jerry then I see to think otherwise. It's not like him admitting he's consulting the Cowboys hurts something

If you let his contract expire AND slap the tag on on him, then you eat the tag money along with all the prorated bonuses that would escalate - it'd likely end up being over $20m with the tag being $15m by itself (2013 is 14.6m)
