Not always of course, but doesnít it always SEEM, like other teams find their plug and players after having lost a key guy or two? Thatís what drafting and UDFAs are all about, not to mention roster cuts elsewhere.
I recall and easily could be wrong, that the year Dallas went 13-3 in Zekeís rookie year, the Cowboys lost 3 Secondary starters and most everyone said they were toast. I did, but because of the retirement of Romo, not because of their injuries. I felt a guy like Marinelli could find his players and get the job done..Yes, perhaps it was a year or two before that they lost those starters, but regardless, solid to elite coaches/coordinators generally find a way. Thatís why they coach at this level. Granted, total decimation is difficult to overcome for any coordinator this side of Belichick.
No matter what shakes out with our D in general and our Secondary in particular, I believe Bettcherís the guy to get his guys to fit what he wants to do. Yes, a team effort. Other than the Giants, I cut back a lot of football watching, but living in Az, I did watch many of the Cardsí games on GamePass. Bettcher did a helluva job there with his oft-injured personnel. Iím very excited about this guy and unlike recent coordinators of ours, he knows how to make quick adjustments, often on the fly. That is my hope here.
