05:44 PM ET 01.24 | Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett cited a lack of takeaways by his team's defense as the main reason for the firing of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. The Cowboys defense had just 16 takeaways in 2012, compared to 29 giveaways by the offense.

And here I thought it was because Jerry Jones told him to

Somehow I think several of those offensive presents were more damaging than not getting a couple more on defense.

29 giveaways? Did he fire his offensive coordinator too? Oh, wait...

Seems the NFL has this rule; owners cannot coach. No rule against getting a guy to be your puppet, well maybe there is but proving it might be difficult.

Nobody thinks he didn't, but you'll never get Garrett to admit that publicly.

Dallas rewards players that giveaway points as Romo is still in Big D.

The Cowboys and the Jets are competing for the most confusing leadership policy in the league. Right now the Jets are in the lead...but not by much.

total BS. JJ fired ryan and everyone knows this. garrett is nothing more than a puppet for jones and a poor one at that. and look at our QB and his costly INTs. they killed this team way more than a lack of takeaways. so now garrett is going to start spilling BS from his mouth??
