I have mixed emotions about the hiring.  I know he had a solid run in the middle of his tenure with Green Bay.  Some of the downfall was the lack of a big time receiver with Green Bay after Jordy Nelson had his injury, and then left for the Oakland Raiders.  Green Bay did not add to their aging receiving corps.  The defense also started falling apart due to free agency and injuries.  The hire will make me watch the Cowboys again, but I'm going to keep him on a short stick.  

Some of what you mentioned can be fixed by a good GM, or VP of player personnel. I think Stephan Jones will fill the bill on that along with Will McClay . Jerry just needs to sign the checks.

I've already mentioned what I think the Cowboys need to fix.  I think Amari will be back, and I don't think he'll seek the big bucks from what he's said.  It's the secondary that needs to be tweaked with some major fixes, and the early play calling for the offense so were not down by double digits when the other team can go into cruise control on defense, and the offense rack up garbage time yardage to make the final score look close.  I saw Wade Phillips was fired by the Rams today, and I hope Jerry doesn't talk Mike into hiring him.   I know he won his Super Bowl ring with Kubiak, but he's had his time in Dallas.  We'll see what changes McCarthy brings in the next few months with the coaching staff.  What Jerry will do with our free agents and potential free agents, then the draft, and then onto training camp.

Jerry and McCarthy have got to fix the defense. We got backups playing starter snaps. Give me a big run stuffing DT up front so that LVE and Jaylon ain’t tackling a running back five yards down the field. Give me another pass rusher across from Tank because I’m afraid we ain’t gonna be able to bring Quinn back because of price. We have got to fix the secondary. Give me a couple corners and a safety. There’s no turnovers, no big plays coming from back there.

Seems like it’s up to Kellen if he wants to stay a Cowboy or not.

For everyone, including me who doubt that McCarthy will have complete control read this. I found it quite astounding, frankly. As long as Stephan has cajones as big as an elephants maybe he and McCarthy can gang up on the Jerruh

Couple a potential assistant names to keep an eye on, Jim Tomsula for D-line coach and John Fassel as Special Teams coach.

Anything is better than what we had as assistants last year.  I'm not completely onboard with keeping Moore on, because most of the yardage was in garbage time.  They are inflated stats.

Great hire.  Now to clean house.  As Colin Cowherd put it, to many cowboys on the coaching staff. 

Colin Coward is an idiot

Y'all gotta go check out the McCarthy interview on YouTube. Peter King interviewed him about 3 weeks ago. 

Very interesting and good look into McCarthy's vision, preparation, what happened and why he was fired in GB, and his outlook on his next HC job (this is before he was up for the Cowboys job). 

YouTube....search for "How Mike McCarthy has prepared for his return to NFL | NBC Sports"

McCarthy assistant hires

Marinelli = Tomsula....I’ll call it a wash

Richard <<<<<Nolan.....that’s a upgrade

O’Quinn<<<<<<<<<<<Fassel.....upgrade times 100

That’s a pretty solid coaching crew.

That he looked at what failed in Green Bay and decided he needed to change is something we never saw from Garrett. Garrett thought that by doing the same thing over and over eventually the results would change.

A snippet for those who want a quick gist of it.

Keeping Moore may have a lot to do with Dak's comfort level. They seem to be leaning very heavily on McCarthy's ability to improve Dak's play. McCarthy is an offensive guy and can take advantage of what Moore does well, and reject what he doesn't. I think what will happen; Moore will lay out the game plans, and McCarthy will call the plays during the game. That's just a guess on my part.

Honestly I would consider a trade for Dak . Like Peyten Manning in Denver . Brady and getting any younger but can't see him there. Rivers wouldn't be terrible lol. Give me a vet QB and 1st round pick .

Somebody is fixing to get a good o-line coach in Colombo. Wished we’d have kept him.
