The hiring of Monte Kiffin sets the Cowboys up to fire Jason Garrett, and he doesn’t even know it. Jerry Jones has proved one thing - He can’t general manage a fruit stand let alone a football team. Bill Parcells installed a 3-4 defense and stocked it. Wade Phillips continued the process, and within a week, Jones ruined it. Don’t worry Cowboys fans, you’ll be rebuilding very soon. DeMarcus Ware isn’t a 4-3 defensive end, Jay Ratliff isn’t a 4-3 tackle, Sean Lee isn’t a deep middle linebacker, and Morris Claiborne along with Brandon Carr aren’t zone defenders. Mike Holmgren must be licking his chops at this move. Garrett wanted Ryan’s huge personality gone, probably because he coached circles around Garrett. Jones can cite examples of a fundamentally unsound defense, but that’s the Ryan brothers' trademark, unconventional and equally disruptive. We wonder why he didn't cite the egregious interceptions Tony Romo throws or the inordinate amount of false start penalties or illegal procedure gaffs. However, Jones just did the unmentionable, firing a good defensive coach for the sake of his head coach, and the Cowboys will pay dearly for that. Mike Ditka won a Super Bowl in the 80's with Buddy Ryan's 46 defense, and fired him the next year. Rob said he'll get a job in 5 minutes, can we get him in New England? Monte Kiffin? Really? Did they look at his tenure at Tennessee or USC? Jones has stepped into it big time and it sets up a huge house cleaning in 2013. The problems for the Cowboys has been at quarterback, where they consistently hang their hope on the Cowboys version of Mark Sanchez. Romo is going to make the wrong play at the wrong time. The definition of crazy is doing something over and over again, expecting the same results. That’s what the Cowboys are doing, only with the key players getting older each year. The window is fading and you’re going to change defensive systems, when your issues come on offensive breakdowns? Good luck Dallas’s fans, you’re heading to high draft picks and new coaches, because as long as Jones is willing to placate fans in order to keep filling all those seats in a cavernous stadium, they do sell paper bags at the corner store, you're going to need them for your heads. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
