Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli is not only regarded as one of the best in the NFL, he’s also one of its most vocal, passionate and dedicated defenders.
His team is currently No. 1 in the league in points allowed per game (12.8), second in yards per play allowed (1.8) and third in rushing defense (5.4).
It’s no surprise that the Cowboys are a contender to win the NFC West title in 2017.
But when you add up all of Marinelli’s defensive stats and statistics for all 30 teams and the total number of sacks, tackles for loss and interceptions he’s recorded, the Dallas defensive coordinator’s not just one of America’s most accomplished defensive minds.
He’s one of NFL’s best.
