Cowboys linebacker Bradie James had a lengthy interview on the The Ticket this morning with Norm Hitzges about what went wrong this season.
One thing James doesn't sound happy with was the recent firing of defensive coordinator Brian Stewart, who was forced out after two seasons.
"The defensive coordinator wasn't the problem," James said. "What did we really solve by letting him go? The situation is still the same. I think there are other moves that need to be made but it's not about me, I'm a player so I can't make those decisions. I've just got to deal with whatever we have, whatever we put out there."
James is right. What did this move do? Firing Stewart did not solve any of this team's problems. With Stewart's play-calling duties stripped this season, he was probably better off re-starting somewhere else.
