If the Dallas Cowboys plan on turning around their misfortunes in 2013, then certain things need to change for that to occur. For a franchise that has been the poster child for mediocrity for the past 17 years, the sense of urgency needs to be into the stratosphere.
And that's just for starters.
So where would be a suitable starting point for change? Apparently, some of those changes have already taken place in the form of coaching staff shuffling. Gone are Rob Ryan, Joe DeCamillis, Jimmy Robinson and John Garrett and in are Monte Kiffin, Rod Marinelli and Rich Bisaccia.
