Many of our Dallas Cowboy die-hard fans/readers strongly disagreed with the firing of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan on Tuesday. For most, it was the last straw in what has become viewed as some very odd choices by owner and general manager Jerry Jones.
Jones has elected to keep head coach Jason Garrett in place and remove Ryan and running backs’ coach Skip Peete. The moves are made even more questionable considering both the defense and offensive backfield were ravaged with injuries through the season.
Ryan’s defenses have had a history of starting strong, but struggling the second half of the season. Despite their injury woes, the defense was able to step up in most games in critical situations. Cornerback Brandon Carr’s game winning interception against the Pittsburgh Steelers comes to mind. But their lack of effectiveness in two games against the Washington Redskins probably swayed the decision negatively to move on from Ryan.
Some are speculating a move to the 4-3 defense is planned.
