Found January 10, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Ed Werder of ESPN Dallas reports sources have informed him that the Cowboys are “focused” on bringing in Monte Kiffin as their next defensive coordinator. Kiffin’s name has been tossed around a bit in recent days following his resignation as USC’s defensive coordinator. There were reports that he could be an option for the Chiefs defensive coordinator job as well. Hiring Kiffin would be a pretty clear sign that Dallas is prepared to move forward with a 4-3 defense rather than the 3-4 that they’ve been using in recent years. To his credit, he was the creator of the Tampa 2 defense that has become pretty popular across the league. It’s worth noting that Jason Garrett is familiar with Kiffin as they were both with the Buccaneers back in 2004. The Cowboys parted ways with Rob Ryan earlier in the week and since then names like Ray Horton, Lovie Smith and Dave Wannstedt have all been mentioned as being potential replacements.     The post Cowboys Targeting Monte Kiffin As Their Next Defen...

Witten to be honored at Super Bowl Breakfast

At least one member of the Dallas Cowboys will be going to the Super Bowl, and it's for all the right reasons. Cowboys tight end Jason Witten won the 2013 Bart Starr Award, given annually to one NFL player for outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community. Witten will be honored at the 26th Annual Super Bowl Breakfast, an NFL-sanctioned...

Why did Jerry Jones fire Rob Ryan?

Well, see ya later Why did Jerry Jones fire Rob Ryan? After the season was over, Jones famously said that things were going to be uncomfortable around Valley Ranch. He promised, in so many words, significant change. But why Rob Ryan? Sure, the defense was porous and played poorly. But Ryan had to assemble a team that excluded as many as seven of his starters. The team’s top tackler...

Tony Romo Back On The Fairway

I never choke out here Juan… Tony Romo and the Cowboys had another season end on a sour note as they choked in the final game of the season.  The Cowboys have parted ways with Rob Ryan, but I’m not so sure that was the right move.  Jerry Jones needs to take a step back and bring in a Bill Cowher type that can right the ship.  Don’t see it happening. Tony Romo In The Seventh...

Dallas Cowboys: Rob Ryan Had to Go as Defensive Coordinator

The pain of a 28-18 season-ending loss and a very average 8-8 season still a fresh wound, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said three days after the disappointment in Washington that things were going to get "very uncomfortable" at Valley Ranch over the next few weeks.The news Monday of the firing of running backs coach Skip Peete stunned nobody and hardly registered on...

No Surprise, Larry Allen is a Hall of Fame Finalist

If you want a lock for a first time ballot NFL Hall of Famer, look no further than Larry Allen. Allen just made it to the finalist list, and should be a lock for being voted into the HOF. This is a nomination I have been waiting for and the moment is almost here for Cowboys Nation, he is the best offensive lineman in the history of the Cowboys franchise and he’s a top 5 all-time...

Cowboys' Ware to have shoulder surgery

Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware will have surgery on Thursday to repair a torn labum in his right shoulder, ESPNDallas.com reported Wednesday. Ware hopes to be cleared in time to participate in training camp. Ware wore a brace down over the last few games to protect a hyperextended right elbow. He will not have surgery for that problem now, but that remains an option for later...

Rob Ryan And His Econoline Van Are Out Of Dallas

It’s not every coordinator firing that KSK bothers to cover, but not every coordinator is Rob Ryan, a man who never stopped rocking, being real or doing eightballs in the first seat of his 1999 Ford Econoline conversion van. This off-season, both Ryan brothers were almost out of jobs, which would have left this a much poorer league for the sake of depravity. That might sit well...

Cowboys would reportedly move DeMarcus Ware to defensive end in a 4-3

If the Dallas Cowboys end up hiring Monte Kiffin as their next defensive coordinator, they would then have to switch their base defense from a 3-4 to a 4-3. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Cowboys are confident that DeMarcus Ware can play defensive end and Sean Lee can play middle linebacker. I honestly think Ware would be better as an end than he’s been as a linebacker, wheres...
