Mike Nolan Con’s
If there’s one thing that Nolan is also known for is having defenses that rank at the bottom of the NFL is points allowed and yards allowed. Now this is going to happen when you teach your corners and linebackers to be aggressive if you miss or guess wrong you’re going to give up the big play. That’s a scary thought especially when we aren’t sure what we are going to see on offense yet.
Could Nolan’s defense be too complicated for the Cowboys to successfully execute? As I said earlier our defenses in the past were very vanilla so the worry would be that the players aren’t able to pick up the defense. Nolan’s defense give a lot of exotic looks and if players can’t remember what they need to do it’s not going to work.
Has Nolan evolved like McCarthy is saying that he has? As of right now, we have no way of knowing if he has at all. We have seen him do a great job with the linebackers in New Orleans but coaching a position is not the same as coordinating an entire defense. So only time will tell if Nolan has adapted to the new style of NFL offenses.
