Dallas Cowboys' Firing of Rob Ryan Won't Solve Any Problems

Jerry Jones continues to prove that he has no clue how to fix his ailing franchise.

Jones has fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, but don't expect anything positive to come out of this latest development for the Dallas Cowboys

The New York Post's Brian Costello first broke the story:

ESPN's Adam Schefter and other reliable sources have confirmed Costello's report.

First thing first: Ryan did a darn good job running Dallas' defense in 2012.

Injuries to Jay Ratliff, Sean Lee, DeMarcus Ware and other key players decimated Ryan's ability to game plan—not to mention the loss of nose tackle Josh Brent, who was responsible for the death of Jerry Brown, Jr. 

Let's not forget that Jones is the one responsible for bringing in talent as the team's general manager, and the cupboard was pretty barren on defense this season—especially on the interior of the line and in the secondary.

Tell me again what Garrett is good for, if not to call plays?

Furthermore, if Jones wants to get rid of Ryan, he may as well get rid of Jason Garrett, too. 

After the recent revelation that Garrett may give up play-calling duties, one has to wonder exactly what Garret is good for these days. 

In a recent interview, Garrett told KRLD-AM, via ESPNDallas.com:

"We would just talk it through," Garrett said of a potential discussion with owner Jerry Jones..."Again, line one for me in the position that I'm in is what's best for the Dallas Cowboys -- in every way, shape or form, however we're doing. Anything and everything is on the table."

At this point, it seems the only thing Garrett is good for is this: Following Jones' orders. Heck, maybe Jones should just become the head coach and be done with the whole charade. 

It's not like Garrett is a master motivator or personnel savant.

Jones continues to make mistake after mistake with his franchise.

It's his fault the Cowboys have won just one playoff game in the last 16 seasons, and until he fires himself as the team's general manager and hires a strong-minded head coach who'll run the show like Jimmy Johnson did back in the 1990s, the Cowboys will continue to fail.

Will things get better or worse for Dallas in 2013?

Ryan isn't an elite defensive coordinator, but he didn't sink the ship in Dallas.

The ship has been sinking for a long time before he ever showed up, and it's going to maintain residence at the bottom of the sea until Jones is no longer the man making all the football decisions.
