Maybe somebody (Quinn perhaps) is looking at the D roster with a more trained eye and so therefore six of the 13 players who started and/or played more than 40% of our defensive snaps in 2020 have retired or are no longer with the team. A major purge was needed, we've all agreed on that for at least three years.
I agree with the needed purge but I see no plan. The man with a plan must be the HC/GM combo. We always seem to defer to coordinators who have more input than they should. At the end of the day, we're hoping that Quinn can "coach them up" and provide a spark and impact on our D. Quite honestly, I was giddy this time last year at the thought of MM and I'm starting to have my doubts.
At the end of the day, we're not building a team to win. We're building a team to entertain and compete which, in turn, keeps the money rolling. The Cowboys are the most valuable franchise in the world. Mission accomplished.
