Jerrah scapegoating and protecting Jason Garrett who should be fired. Jerrah should stop trying to play GM and fire himself.

He enjoys the action way too much to ever consider doing that.

  • The New York Post's Brian Costello "hears" that the Cowboys have fired DC Rob Ryan.
    Costello is a Jets beat writer. Perhaps he got the surprising scoop from someone close to Ryan's twin brother, though we wouldn't take it as gospel truth until the report is confirmed. Costello had reported earlier in the day that Jets secondary coach Dennis Thurman would be elevated to defensive coordinator. It will be interesting to see if that indeed happens now that the Ryan Brothers have a chance to reunite in New York. Ryan's Dallas defense was among the league's stingiest early in the season before losing several key players to injuries.

The Jets promoted someone earlier today to defensive coordinator. A little too late for Rob to go there in that position.

I don't like him, his defenses are never dominant. Too much bark and no bite.

put him on the DC list, the only better thing than getting Pettine would be getting Rob, not sure if he fits the ego-less profile but worth kicking the tires though

He's going to the Jets. About the only thing the Jets can do to top the circus of this season.

So were about 27 other teams.

@greggrosenthal
In terms of maximizing talent, Rob Ryan out-coached Jason Garrett 2 straight years. Not even close.

This is a no brainer. Hire the guy immediately. He took a crappy Cowboys defense and made them decent. He is a damn good coach.

Rex said in his presser that they had already chosen the next DC.  It later leaked out that it was Thurman although it hasn't been officially announced by the JEST.
