Dallas-cowboys-head-coach
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said he's open to changes and would even give up his play-calling duties. "We would just talk it through,"Garrett said about about a possible meeting with owner Jerry Jones. "Again, line one for me in the position that I'm in is, 'What's best for the Dallas Cowboys' in every way, shape or form, however we're doing. Anything and everything is on the table." Jones said Wednesday that after failing to make the playoffs for the second straight season changes would be coming, and "it's going to be very uncomfortable for the next few weeks and months at Valley Ranch" Speculation has already arisen that the Cowboys would bring in an offensive coordinator so Garrett could focus more on managing the team. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Garrett's job is secure, but Dallas does plan to bring in help on the offensive side of the ball. "The Cowboys intend to keep Jason Garrett I have not heard this morning that that has changed.  A better possibility is that the Cowboys could hire an offensive coordinator to call plays for Jason Garrett and allow him to be a walk-around coach and essentially just be the leader of men that they think he can be." The move would require some finessing of titles because offensive line coach Bill Callahan also holds the title of offensive coordinator. Callahan's role is more hands off because Garrett has called plays in Dallas during his 21-19 run with the team. That obviously would change.

  • Garrett is the worst coach in the NFL. He is not worth a nickel as a play caller. Second string QB and third string play caller. Jerry should fire him immediately.
