**** it, fired Smith. It's the least we could do. LOL

This guy should have been fired at the end of last season. This guy is the David Carr of Def. Coordinators. No matter how bad they perform, the just continue to keep their job and collect a check. Hopefully we don't wait 5 years to get rid of Richard Smith...

...the guy just sucks. sorry, its not exactly breaking news.

(Richard) Smith is ONE of the main reason why we're having trouble stopping opposing offenses. I'm not about to throw all the blame on him...but damn man...let's consider the current track record. For three years and counting...we can't stop 3rd down..period. 3rd and short...3rd and long...3rd and 30...it doesnt matter...we will give up 32 yards. It comes down to the scheme and Smith doesn't cut the mustard. Getting rid of dead weight starts with the DC. Give me some Bush. (F-it.....Yes I mean that!)

I'm sorry to call for his head right now, but the man cannot come up with any competent blitz packages. We've used to many picks on defense not to have them play better. This is ridiculous.

Surely a fairly smooth transition can be made during the season when Smith gets the ax. With Bush being there for over a year, they should be able to keep the same terminology but maybe put the playmakers in a position to make plays!

I was talking to Barrett during the game about his buddy, Richard Smith. I remember that Smith had Mario tell him what his 5 favorite plays were so that he could call them for him. That was before the Denver game. Perhaps it would be nice to have a D.C. at least as aware as a 22 year old lineman what calls will put his guys in the best position to excel.

Dude, say it loud! I like Bush! Seriously, this defense ain't right and is not getting better soon. I swear Romo was laughing half the time he was out there. Made me sick. I'm speechless. Except for I like bush.

It's like everyone is saying. We have too much talent on the defensive side of the ball to play this poorly. We need to rid ourselves of Richard Smith and replace him with Frank Bush or Ray Rhodes. What a horrible defensive effort tonight.

we have talent like every other team in the league has talent but if you look at our positional starters each position group is below average really. I'd put our secondary in the last quarter of the league, the linebackers are below average outside of Ryans, and Weaver, TJ, Okoye are probably one of the weakest 3/4ths of a Dline in the league. We have potential but you know what potential means.

Folks, I will suggest that you go to a site like pro-football reference and check out what other teams have on their Ds, where in the draft they have their players.

Like we ain't drafting high defensively this year, so I can't really say how the other guys are doing.

This is just in 07 - and remember we're not drafting high in D in 08

We had 4 first rounders, two 2nd rounders, on each in the 3rd and the 4th.
(Now my count might be wrong, if you are really interested, help me and go check yourself, please!)

I'm going from A to H here.

ATL, 4-1st, 3-2nd, 1-3rd, 2-4th (hell more than us)
BALT, 5-1st, 2-2nd, 1-4th
CAR, 5-1st, 4-2nd
CHI, 3-1st, 2-2nd, 3-3rd
CINN, 5-1st, 2-2nd, 3-3rd, 2-4th
Girls, 6-1st, 1-2nd, 1-3rd, 2-4th
DEN, 3-1st, 3-2nd, 3-3rd, 2-4th
DET, 3-1st, 8-2nd, 3-3rd

I don't have time to check, but looks like there was trading during the season, so a couple of teams show more than 11 defensive players on the list.

The point is, there were teams who had more talents on the D that under-achieved. And it sure looks like that we have more upside this year as well.

Now that it's Saturday morning, and I've had some coffee and sobered up, I have to say that I haven't changed my mind from last night. The title of this thread says it all.

Yeah, we haven't got the greatest defensive secondary in the NFL, but we really should be looking better than we did last night. Something is amiss here, and I do believe it seems to be our defensive coordinator.

So the V-Man says we got 2 descent players on defense, but the other 9 suxx big-time. Obviously that's not a favorable assessment of the aggregate talent level of the defense, but gotta agree that's what it looked like last night.
The only comforting thought I can find about the Ds performance in Irving is that we may not have to face another offense this season that is that good ?
