    SF had a pretty solid D

    Not much out there on the guy, but can't be any worse than we had...can it?

    Pretty shitty Dallas denied us permission and we are offering up Dennison to Denver, are we being too nice or is Dallas just being a POS?

    SF has had one of the slowest secondaries in the league the past few years... I think he's gotten a lot out of not much. He'll have more speed and youth to work with here.

    Of course no one knows him.

    He's not some coach's son who got the job because his pops was on the staff...

    Yeah, you David Gibbs.

    If we were offering Dennison up for a lateral move, I'd agree... but he's looking to get promoted. I don't think we could have stopped it if we wanted to.

    Herring wouldn't be getting a promotion. It would be a lateral move.

    It's common courtesy that you allow an assistant to interview for a higher position (Head Coach), whereas the Dallas assistant would have been named to the same position.

    Not only that but their coach is under contract still and they haven't named a D Coordinator so they are making sure everything is in order.

    Never heard of this guy...thought he played in COLORADO in college.

    Seriously? LOL. Man, comedy can't be written any better than real life.

    Even if it's a coincidence, it's a funny coincidence.

    Any chance this guy played TE in his playing days? You know .... just for the symmetry of it all.

    So basically, the last time this guy inherited a 32nd ranked pass defense, he turned it into the 26th ranked pass defense?

    And that is in the NFC West, a perenially awful division.

    I fear for our Texans next year.
