Dallas Cowboys VP Stephen Jones told the The Star Telegram that the defensive scheme former DC Rob Ryan had in place, was too much...

"Where we fundamentally came down with Rob is that his philosophy is about multiple scheme," Jones said. "I think you have to skinny it down. Philosophically, I don’t think Rob believes in that. And it’s not something that happened and all of a sudden at the end of the year we had a problem. I think Rob will tell you we had long visits about this in the off-season last year that there was too much scheme. He tried to cut it back and he did skinny it back, but it’s still a lot."

"This is no revelation we had after we went 8-8. This was after the year before’s 8-8. We just didn’t feel like at the end of the day Rob could skinny it back enough to our satisfaction that we could make plays."

Dallas already has a smart MLB who can cover in Sean Lee. He led the team in interceptions in 2011 and had a breakout year, but in 2012 he missed most of the year on injured reserve. MLB isn't a need for Dallas at all, their holes are at safety, defensive tackle and offensive guard.

What's funny is of they think the Rob Ryan D was complicated......ooohhh buddy, Monte's Tampa 2 scheme is mostly checks and reads and its a whole lot more complicated

That being said these guys are being PAID to know it and if I was making that amount of damn money I'd know every players position like the back of my hand.

A smart leader type MLB is really a major need for Dallas, if they could get a guy like Te'o it would work, but not many good coverage LB's in this draft

"The only reason that J.Jones let Rob Ryan go is b/c a tru legend DC was available, Monte Kiffin. One of the only possible upgrades over Rob"

The legend that got torched for over 60 points by Chip Kelly?

Rob Ryan: "Is that a fat joke?!"

I guess Romo throwing his interceptions was Rob's fault too.
