Time to get a new coaching staff in place. Hopefully, the next coach can install a defensive scheme that can utilize some of the athletes we do have, and finally address the lack of disruptive interior lineman. Fuck off, Marinelli.
Marinelli fucking off has to be the #1 priority on defense.

Pretty misleading.

One was replaced (Charlton) with a much better player.

3 are starters, 2 of whom are injured. A 3rd player is injured so we don't know how good he is or isn't.

The other starter (Awuzie) is basically a 2 yaer starter who struggled this year but was pretty solid last year.

The last guy is Hill, for whom the book is still out given he's been here less than a season.

The way that tweet is presented makes it sound like we've had 6 misses the past 3 drafts, but that's not accurate at all.

And that's not even mentioning the deeper round players who have contributed nicely, like Gallup, Xavier Woods, and Tony Pollard.
I agree. To point at our drafts and talent and pretend like that's the big problem is silly. Obviously some picks were bad but this team has a good amount of talent. Maybe not win the Superbowl talent but certainly better than this.

Yep. Regardless of what the defense did this year the stain of that turd Hill has to cost him his head.

Marinelli has been deserving of retirement for years now. I honestly thought he was going to before this season considering he wasn't even calling plays anymore.

Let him walk. Take the comp pick and be glad you didn't waste $20 mill a year on a guy who only plays well in Dallas. Sometimes.
It would be kind of funny to watch Jerry let Amari walk, tag Dak, and have Dak have an atrocious season...only to sign him for a lot less than the value of the tag

Agreed, he got the Marinelli stank on him.

I want the whole staff wiped clean, with Kitna being the only one I'd consider retaining. He seemed to help Dak tremendously.
I want to hire a new HC and let him decide what happens with this staff.

The WRs did make bad drops, but he had a number of bad reads/throws.


Im not trying to excuse his play because I really think the shoulder had something to do with it. I just wonder how many of those bad throws happened after the drops. Meaning had they caught those passes would those throws be made. I just didnt watch that close enough to say definitely either way.

It's our bread and butter and we don't use it. Strong running game and a mobile QB. Makes no sense.
Sure it does. What happened to all the motion Moore was using in preseason?
Just like the PA, it went away. Because a guy named Garrett wanted to run HIS shitty unproductive offense.

Well if there is one man capable of defying common sense and logic it is Garrett.

what a strange season this was. Except for the Detroit game, Dallas blew out their opponent or got beat....

To me that's a sign of a really poorly coached team with bad special teams. Special teams are almost always the difference in close games. We had the worst special teams in the NFL.

I fully expect the Cowboys to win the Redskins game but even so and with a good performance from Prescott, I can’t see giving him a high dollar contract. This was his go or no go year for being a top tier QB and despite his stats he has only been average in my opinion because he isn’t consistent. No contract yet. Tag him and that will send the message in itself. If he doesn’t become consistent next season then make the hard determination then.

I like using the tag but have no faith jones & spawn will use it on Dak

Remember how quickly Parcells prioritized Jason Ferguson?
He was the best available at the time. He hung in there in 2006 then got hurt. Fergy was a bit old and undersized to perfectly fit Parcells idea of the 3-4 NT.

Wade changed the whole scheme and it fit Fergy’s replacement Ratliff well, but imo any scheme with undersized NTs is missing the whole point of the position

Dedicate resources to talented big dudes up front on defense and you can have an average QB like Garoppolo leading you

How many were caused by passes thrown behind them? It’s no coincidence
Read the post about this a bit after my reply.


I know you watched the game and there were several drops that were perfectly thrown. There were several that were just a bit behind and should have been caught. There were several that were were bad throws.

I'm just not going to say that he alone shat the bed. I'm saying that the WRs made his performance look worse. His shoulder not being right made his performance look worse. He will always have some WTF throws but I'm not blaming the game on him. It was a collection of many things.

Absolutely!
To me it's about dominating the LOS, on both sides of the ball. And Marinelli wants nothing to do with a massive bully or two who crush the inside of the pocket. And in my mind that's run stopping 101. Not to mention it opens up holes to blitz.
