great hire! that defense actually could be lethal running a 4-3 tampa 2 type system. the entire front 7 is much faster than a typical 3-4. still a shame we couldnt work it out here, sticking to a core philosophy and being rigid is a good for the nfl where you can keep your players but doesnt really work in college with players constantly coming and going.
Fingayz of da decadez be poppin while fools be gettin fiyad!!!
Good Luck with that!
It shouldn't be as bad as we've seen here. He's going to have grown men, that don't have class and can study/practice his scheme year-round.
He's already had prolonged success under these circumstances.
As a Cowboy fan, I'm far from pleased. Just when I thought he was out of my football life, here he is again. Disaster waiting to happen
Carr and Claiborne are both press man coverage corners and we know how much monte hates that. Should be interesting to see play out.
Best of luck MK!
I liked him being associated with SC, but the NFL is where he can best bring his DC capabilities. Good Luck Monte!
This^^^^^ if RG3 comes back healthy Monte's already shown he has no clue how to stop the spread option
suddenly chip kelly is interested in the eagles again
I predict sometime next year, or the year after, when Monte has the cowboys d rolling people on this board will be clamoring for his return. Coaching in the NFL is suited to Montes strengths as you can actually build a team around a concept and scheme that needs to be fully understood by its defensive players. Just go back to when Vick was running in atlanta, the bucs d under monte shut him down both running and passing. Montes problem at USC and college in general was not understanding that the players are just not able to fully grasp everything and you cant force players to run a concept in which they are not suited for it.
no doubt, im just poking fun. it might take at least 2 years because he has the tough task of transforming the dallas D from a 3-4 into a 4-3. lot of new guys they are gonna be looking at
Monte will do fine in Dallas and he will improve their D.
Fight on Monte ....
Was I right or was I right. My sources have sources
20hrs.of practice time.
No Excuses,'' 11 x National Campions anyday,anytime ,anywhere.
I don't remember seeing one, but is there a source saying Monte will change to a 4-3?
Everyone expects Clancy to switch back to a 4-3 with sc, but no one expects Monte to adapt to what is in place in Dallas? Or is there a personnel or scheme incongruence issue driving Dallas to change?
