After last week's bewildering non-admission, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett finally acknowledged Tuesday that offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will call plays this season.
A week ago, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, in his usual roundabout way, told reporters that Callahan had taken over play-calling duties from Garrett. But when quizzed later during his own media session, Garrett said the play-caller decision was still under discussion.
On Tuesday, during the team's mini-camp, Garrett came clean.
Garrett said the decision to hand over play-calling duties was made five months ago. He said he was reluctant to share the information because he's worked for coaches who never revealed who was calling the plays.
Garrett offered an apology for not "being on the same page" with how the decision was announced, but said he agreed with the decision. That lack of communication led to further speculation about Garrett's authority being undermined by Jones.
Garrett has called the Cowboys' offensive plays since 2007 and said he will still be involved in game-planning.

Tony Romo told reporters that Cowboys players don't put much stock in what they write, saying, "Not trying to be rude, but you guys just don’t matter."
IRVING, Texas Tony Romo said Tuesday that he thinks the offensive backgrounds of Bill Callahan and Jason Garrett will "blend together nicely" for the Dallas Cowboys.

IRVING, Texas -- When Dallas drafted Bruce Carter in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft, many wondered why the Cowboys rolled the dice on a linebacker who was coming off an ACL injury during his final season at North Carolina and a player many felt was a reach in the second round of the draft.
After not playing much as a rookie, Carter proved his worth to the Dallas defense...

IRVING, Tex. - The Dallas Cowboys gathered Tuesday for the first practice of mini-camp — which differs from the OTAs in recent weeks only in the sense that attendance at mini-camp is required — and for the second time in as many weeks, the highlight of the day took place after practice.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, ESPN’s Ed Werder says the reason the Dallas Cowboys haven’t released Josh Brent is because they believe he’ll one day be a contributor on the field for them.
Brent’s legal problems make it unlikely that he’ll play at all this year. Even if he were to escape going to prison, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will probably suspend him for a...

I'm normally the first person to say as Buffalo fans, we shouldn't throw stones at any other team because, well, we kind of suck at sports. But last week, I couldn't help but laugh my ass off at how badly the Dallas Cowboys looked when it came to figuring out who was going to call the offensive plays.
Bill Callahan? Really? The guy who hasn't called offensive...
