The Dallas Cowboys have a new DB Coach and Passing Game Coordinator they scooped up from the Seattle Seahawks and all the right things are being said in regards to the new hire (Kris Richard). What’s not being said is, ‘why the change?’
An example of ‘why’ is a flashback to the Giants scoring a go-ahead TD while the defensive coverage that was called was not able to enact effective coverage on the play and Sean Lee knew it. Unfortunately, his coach was in the dark and again, this is just an example of what Dallas had been experiencing for several seasons with the back seven in the current scheme. Sub-par results caused by design rather than the player’s performance.
Why is Sean Lee so important to Dallas? Here’s the in-game conversation between Lee & Joe Baker (was let go by Dallas this offseason) after NYG scored a TD to go up 10-3. Cowboys coaches called a defense that was physically impossible to execute, and Lee had to tell him so. pic.twitter.com/QcfA6vqXo8

It was past time to make a change and credit the Cowboys Front Office and Jason Garrett for pulling the trigger on Baker and several other assistants whose units were not performing up to standards.
