Dallas fans should expect to see a lot more action like this as free agent corner Brandon Carr settles in to the new, Monte Kiffin led, Dallas-2 defensive scheme.



When a team invests $50 million dollars over five years for one player, it is pretty reasonable to expect a significant return on that investment; and that is exactly what second year Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr plans to deliver in the 2013 season. After playing his initial season as a Cowboy in Rob Ryan's "disorganized chaos" defense, Carr is looking forward to taking the field in the Monte Kiffen scheme. For Carr and fellow corner Mo Claiborne, this scheme will give them a chance to show Dallas fans why the team made hefty investments to secure the services of each man. After arriving in Oxnard, Carr spoke with Calvin Watkins of ESPN-Dallas about the new Kiffen-led defense.

According to Carr the the defense has used the last few weeks to "regroup and get our minds right" for the new defensive scheme. For Dallas fans this should be a welcome change, because last season nobody on that side of the ball seemed to have a clue about what they were supposed to do. Under Ryan the team gave up more than 355 yards per game and it was one of nine teams that gave up at least 25 points per contest. Only three teams forced few turnovers than the Cowboys. According to the veteran corner, the defense knows that the effort last year will not get the job done, and he and his fellow defenders are ready for a fresh start. According to Brandon "Everyone is just sticking together" this time around and it is time to turn a corner. The team has put in a lot of work during OTAs and the off season, and they are ready for the new scheme.

For a defense that only generated 16 turnovers; including just seven interceptions, the Dallas-2 system should stir things up. Kiffin's defensive philosophy is focused around taking the ball away from the opposing offense. For Brandon Carr and the rest of the defensive secondary, this season should be an opportunity to provide the return on investment that the Dallas Cowboys expect. When you consider what previous Kiffin-inspired units around the NFL have been able to do; it's easy to see why Carr is so eager to get started.
