Cowboys Hire Defensive Line coach

After the Cowboys lost three defensive assistants to the Dolphins they have added their first new member for the 2008 season.
The team has hired former Browns defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to replace Kacy Rogers as the defensive line coach.
There are still jobs open to coach linebackers and the secondary.
He was recently fired by the Browns after the team finished with the NFL's 30th-ranked defense. The firing, however, came as a surprise as he had signed a two-year extension a few months earlier.
Grantham, 41, has spent nine years in the college ranks and nine in the NFL. He was the Browns defensive coordinator for the past three seasons.

even with a new d-line coach that doesn't promise bringing pressure with just our front four. the only way we are going to get pressure when we need it is when Demarcus Ware and Greg Ellis are on the line rushing the QB. thats why we need to address this issue in free agent signing by getting rid of players like Ayodele, Carpenter, Fasano, Reeves, Spears, Thompson, and Ferguson. Then we can get a Jared Allen and Marcus Trufant. With Trufant, on passing downs you bring Roy Williams in the box and put Anthony Henry at (FS), Trufant and Newman at (CB), and move Ken Hamlin to (SS) so we can create better coverage and a stronger pass rush. With all those players you add one of the first picks and get Darren McFadden and with the other draft Mario Manningham. But we would still need a young veteran receiver a player like Berrian or Fitzgerald would fit with T.O. Then we can draft a CB in the later rounds or maybe another DE. I think this would work out prefectly. The Cowboys would be the team to beat next season trust me
