Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was fired Tuesday after his injury-depleted unit struggled in a pair of season-ending losses that kept the Cowboys out of the playoffs for a third straight year.
Wade Phillips was talking about how players did in the last preseason game when he brought up how well running backs Marion Barber and Felix Jones have been doing.
"They're running hard, they're doing good," Peete said Tuesday. "Obviously, you'd want to see a 10-, 12-yard average. But preseason, that doesn't usually happen. ... In the preseason, you want to get them in shape, get them ready and then when we get to the regular season we'll take advantage of all their talents."
"Right now, we're trying to evaluate people, we're trying to evaluate plays, we're trying to evaluate schemes," Peete said.
