But for him to maximize the talent on this roster, he must change his approach. That won't be easy for a 65-year-old coach, but it's a necessity for Dallas to end its 10-year streak without a playoff victory.
Ah, Parcells must change his approach. I couldn't agree more and posted that thought last week.
Hmm...that sounds familiar. My own take from last week's post:
JJT also has some good Q&A in the article that contains nuggets like Patriots LB coach Pepper Johnson might get an interview for the defensive coordinator spot.
In the previous JJT article, he also answered a question about The Romo Bobble. A reader asked if the Cowboys ends should've gone out for passes on the botched FG attempt. JJT responds:
Shortly after reading that, I came across this over at ESPN's Page 2 in a Gregg Easterbrook column.
I admit I hadn't thought about that. It wouldn't have saved the Cowboys in this game because Romo didn't get the first down or TD, but it's an interesting strategy when you've got that short of a FG attempt. Of course the downside is if you actually pick up the first down or the TD, and then have it erased by a penalty. But even if you do that, more than likely you got the positive play because your whole team is holding the defense. Anyway, it's an interesting strategy in a situation like that.
