God I love Jerry and his way of thinking. Laughing Only the cowboys would demoted two Coordinators and yet somehow keep them both on staff? They did a poor enough job to get demoted but not fired? Then again when you as (Owner/GM) make a statement ensuring the fans and media "no one will be fired", guess this is the end result. Keep up the great GM duties Jerry, keep em up!

2012 - HC/OC playcaller Jason Garrett, Rob Ryan DC
2013 Garrett stripped of playcalling , Callahan promoted to playcaller, Ryan fired and Kiffin named new DC
2014. Scott Linehan named "passing game" CO/playcaller, Callahan lame duck OC?
2014 Rob Marinelli named new DC, Kiffin moves to AHC/defense?

Applause

Detroit's offense was good over the last few years but there's a reason why they never won anything. You can not win games when you abandon the running game like Linehan does. It's still a running league.

It is a likely outcome. It is what was expected this year.

Oh man I hated Linehan as the Lions OC, he's one of the main reasons they sucked. The D stepped up and Linehan literally called plays as if he's never watched film or seen a down of football played. It's hilarious. And get ready to run out of shotgun for a loss A LOT! Murray may want to get out of there lol. Also, get ready for a really upset Dez about the halfway point.

If this "passing game coordinator" idea works as well as the "running game coordinator" role created by the Ravens last year, then prepare for the lulz.

They never shouldve hired Kiffin to begin with. Way past his glory days.

However, I dont think its more than a lateral move from him to Marinelli.

How often do coaches get demoted? Confused

Seems awkward


Fred Pagac was our DC then got demoted back to LBs coach. I'm guessing some coaches would rather just be demoted than try to go to another team, especially if they're not sure they can land an NFL job.

Also its Jerry Jones, he probably demoted the coaches but still pays them coordinator salaries cuz he can afford to

So who is making these coaching decisions? Jones or Garrett?

There is no direction with this team. It's about time Jones hires a gm to manage the head coach spot, and the head coach needs to be able to control its remaining staff. Jones is doing to many things and seem to be past of the point of return of being an inept front office. Fortunately they won't reach the Al Davis raiders level because Dallas has talent at qb, which they can thank Parcells for.

He'll get there. Given Romo's age and back issues the past few years it might not be as far off as most think. I'm just glad Jerry still has a mind of a 40 year old. Cool

Who is Dez going to yell at on the sidelines this year? Romo? Callahan? Linehan? Garrett?
