Jacksonville Defense vs Dallas Defense


Recommended Posts

For the past three seasons as the Chargers defensive coordinator, Phillips orchestrated a steady rise up the league rankings for total defense from 18th in 2004 to 10th in 2006, with his 2005 run defense claiming the top spot in the league by allowing a mere 84.3 yards per game on the ground. The 2006 defensive crew lead the league in sacks, with 61, second-most in club history. This is an area of the Cowboys defense that was sorely lacking under Bill Parcells Texas tenure and you can be sure that Jerry Jones wants to see Phillips infuse his QB pressure magic in young Dallas defenders, DeMarcus Ware and Bobby Carpenter.


Indeed, Phillips track record of facilitating sack masters, from San Diego's Shawne Merriman last year (led the NFL in sacks with 17 despite missing four games due to suspension) to Buffalo's Bryce Paup's league MVP effort in 1996 (17.5 sacks) under Phillips as the Bills defensive coordinator (1995-97) bodes well for DeMarcus Ware's value in fantasy leagues featuring Individual Defensive Players (IDP) in their lineups, as well as the Cowboys defense/special teams unit overall.


Brian Stewart - From SD Secondary Coach to Dallas DC


The six year coaching veteran followed Wade Phillips to Dallas after serving as his secondary coach in San Diego the last three years. In 2006, Stewart oversaw a vastly improved secondary that helped contribute to the Chargers fourth overall finish in total defense. Prior to working with Phillips in San Diego, Stewart coached the Houston Texans secondary for two seasons after gaining valuable experience in training camp stints with the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins through the League's Minority Coaching Fellowship program.


Before jumping to the NFL, Stewart spent the 2001 season coaching the defensive backs at Syracuse University under current Dallas Cowboys linebackers coach, Paul Pasqualoni. His familiarity with Phillips attack-style 3-4 defense should ensure a smooth transition for Cowboys personnel to the new playbook.


Also I see that whole division as improved this year while the giants, foreskins and beagles did not do that much to improve offensively. Jags face @NO, Indy twice, @pit, @denver, kc, sd


Dallas gets Chicago ,Minn buffalo Miami jets lions and GB their toughest game on the road outside the division is the Lions.


I hope that helps!
