Emmitt Smith rips Cowboys defense: 'This scheme is garbage'

On Monday night, the Dallas Cowboys defense allowed 34-year-old Chicago Bears quarterback Josh McCown to look like a Hall of Famer. McCown shredded the Cowboys defense and had a nearly perfect night, as the Bears went on to rout Dallas without ever having to punt the ball.

During the game, former Cowboys star running back Emmitt Smith was sharing his thoughts on the Cowboys defense and they were not very flattering.


Like Emmitt Smith, Cowboys fans had a rough time watching their team’s poor performance.

Dallas fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan a year ago in hopes of turning the defense around and they hired Monte Kiffin to work his magic. Unfortunately, Ryan went on to turn around the New Orleans Saints defense, while Kiffin is leading the Cowboys to an all-time worst performance.

It’s not exactly how Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had pictured the change, and no one is happy with how it has worked out.
