After 2 and a half seasons as the Cowboys’ head coach, Jason Garrett may not be calling the offensive plays anymore come 2013. He has stated in the past that he would like to keep the duty of calling plays, but owner Jerry Jones said there would be major changes this offseason. The changes started on defense when the team fired former defensive coordinator Rob Ryan earlier this offseason. Now the changes are beginning to manifest themselves on the offensive side of the ball. Jones would like a new play caller on offense due to Garrett’s inconsistent play calling over his 2 and a half years. Dallas’ offense has under achieved despite having some elite talent in quarterback Tony Romo, running back DeMarco Murray, wide receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, and tight end Jason Witten. Those are some big names in the league and the Cowboys should be one of the top offenses in the league year in and year out. However, that talent has not translated into playoff success. Everyone knows owner Jerry Jones can be an impatient man when it comes to his team losing which sheds light on his wanting to make serious changes to the team going into the 2013 season. Ultimately, the final decision as to who will be calling the offensive plays in 2013 is Garrett’s and no one else’s, but the Cowboys head coach has yet to make that decision. Most people believe the task of calling the offensive plays will fall to O-line coach Bill Callahan, who has been both an offensive coordinator and head coach in the league before. Garrett has gone on record saying that he has tremendous respect for Callahan. Now that Bill has had a year with the team he might be better suited to take over full responsibility of calling the plays. Whatever Garrett decides to do, Callahan seems like the best option the Cowboys have. Finding an offensive coordinator outside the team at this stage is probably out of the question so it looks like Garrett will have to promote from within the team ranks. If he is smart Callahan will be calling plays in 2013. Photo credit: Matthew Emmons-US Presswire Follow me on Twitter: @BrigantiJoeXLJ
