One of the things I used to love most about Madden when I played it (I stopped playing when the Madden Franchise stopped trying) was the offseason. Now of course most people enjoy trading for players, building stadiums and putting guys through training camps, but there was one area of interest that I only had the option to do years into a franchise. This option was when we were able to bring back retired players and have them be coaches. I remember seeing Emmitt Smith pop up as an option to be one of my assistant coaches. The first time I saw that I peed a little, then immediately made him my head coach (team awareness went down DRASTICALLY that season lol). I wrote an article about Rob Ryan in which I mentioned some guys (former Cowboys) I wouldn't mind seeing on our staff if we didn't have the guys we currently had. We found our head coach (Former Cowboy) in Jason Garrett. But if there were no limitations, what would YOUR Fantasy Dallas Cowboy Coaching Staff look like.
Here are the Ground Rules:
1. They must be a player who is NO LONGER active in the NFL
2. PREFERABLY a former Cowboy, but NOT necessarily.
3. You must state what position you would want him to hold on the staff.
To get the ball rolling, let me toss out a name. I'll start, with the part of our roster that is generally the weakest and the name I think would be the most controversial. For our defensive backs coach I would give a call to Deion Sanders. Now before I'm yelled at because you are thinking about "Prime-Time" who currently promotes himself on the NFL Network, I want you to know I'm not talking about Prime-Time, I'm talking about Deion Sanders. Who was he you ask? Let's see if I can refresh your memory. The side of the field he played on didn't exist as far as the opposing teams offense was concerned. Now before you talk about him just being athletic think about the many many athletic scrubs that come through our league. The Oakland Raiders have about 7 of them currently on their roster. He was rarely thrown at and STILL Sanders intercepted 53 passes for 1,331 yards (a 25.1 yards per return average!!!) This guy was so talented that even though he was drafted in 1989 he didn't even PARTICIPATE in his first NFL training camp until 1996 (Oh and by that time he had already been in four pro bowls WITHOUT EVER EVEN ATTENDING AN NFL TRAINING CAMP, and was on his way to four more pro bowls... consecutively) GOAT?? I think so.
What Say You BTB..... What Say You???? What would your coaching staff look like. Who would be a must have?
