I do think that we might go out and sign a vet DE such as Osi to rotate with Crawford in year one if there is contract value there. Also we need to develop some Depth at DT/DE.
It sucks that we can't pay Spencer a long term contract, without seeing him play DE. That is why I see the Boys for sure "franchising" him again.
Maybe taking as low as a 3rd or 4th rd pick for him or risk paying him the $10 million and seeing if he is worth the contract as a DE.
Dwight Freeney is a FA and he might be able to be had for a relatively short contract (3 yrs) with a low annual salary and higher signing bonus in year one. This would be cheaper than signing Spencer and better long term to draft DE depth and develop Crawford behind Freeney. Freeney and Ware would be pretty entertaining to watch. If Osi is healthy I would love to see him in passing situations with Ware. Osi is horrible vs. the run but this scheme would allow him to do what he does best which is rush the passer.
I hope he pushes Garrett out, because if Garrett is not willing to give up play calling duties he needs to leave. Garrett is out coached on a regual basis and his play calling is horrible and he doesn't know how to gameplan.
Time to get swole baby ooooo yea back in the gym
JJ needs to be direct! JG isn't safe. If JJ is willing to fire a back to back SB winner, a back to back 8-8 product isn't safe from being fired.
IMO we will be fine with the changes to 4-3 Tampa defense. It's not like our DB's were shining playing 12 yards off. I believe the fundamentals of tackling and executing consistently on defense is more key to anything else. We did a poor job of tackling this season and have been consistent in seasons past in this department will make a big difference. I believe Kiffin is the perfect man for the job.
JJ could just come right out and fre Garrett...although it wouldn't surprise me if he fires him like 2 weeks before he draft, I really don't think he will do that...Garrett will coach this season under a year long hot-seat...safe to say 8-8 wont cut it...a playoff birth might not either
Die hard Atlanta Braves, Dallas Cowboys and New York Knicks fan.
I really don't get this whole JJ is trying to push JG out situation. JJ is rich beyond belief, so why wouldn't he just fire JG? Makes no sense, unless JJ is just a narcissist. Oh, wait.
If JJ was going to fire Garrett, it would have happened already...but, if he is STILL going to do it, he will maximize the media attention that he gets as a result,,,,say, next weekend when the Pro Bowlers are getting ready to play?
I think JG stays for 2013. However, if the Cowboys have another 8-8 season, JG's gone. And the next puppet comes in.
I'd bet quite a bit of money John Gruden is coaching this team sometime in the next 18 months. Jerry is installing his safety net as we speak, hiring all of Gruden's staff for him.
I just wonder how many unofficial conversations JJ has had with Gruden already...this just looks way too obvious...
