Blame Jimmy Johnson. This latest Cowboys cluster bleep and forcibly prying play-calling duties from coach Jason Garrett's now hog-tied hands qualifies as yet another in a long line of them has origins in The Jimster. When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones drunkenly dished "any one of 500 coaches could have won those Super Bowls" and Jimmy basically said "have fun with that, a-hole," this set up a game of chicken that remains even now, long after their public peace. If Jerry admits the head coach is important, by giving them real power, by taking a step back, by not effectively neutering every single one of them, Jimmy wins. If he hires a GM, thereby admitting Jimmy really had handled GM duties back in the glory days, Jimmy wins. Both cannot be right, so rather than admit defeat Jerry Jones keeps doubling down on idiocy. This is so typically male, by the way, this doubling down on an inane argument that has been proven wrong simply because you do not want the o...

  • While I would never wish for someone's demise, the Dallas fans look forward to the day when Jerry Jones is no longer a factor in the success of the Cowboys and we can get back to winning football games and that won't happen until he is no longer living. Long live Jimmy Johnson! Jimmy will always be the winner in hearts of the fans.

Is Callahan being setup to buffer Garrett?

Jerry Jones recently let the “cat out the bag” in a recent interview when he basically said Bill Callahan would be calling the plays this season. There has been much debate over who would call the plays this year, and now we know (supposedly). I think we all know that the play calling will be a mix-bag between Garrett, Callahan, and even Romo. So why would Jerry feed us a line...

Jerry Jones Has Decided Bill Callahan Will Call Plays For Cowboys Not Jason Garrett

It is never a good sign for the head coach when the owner takes away his play-calling duties. It undermines his authority with the entire team. Jason Garrett has never seemed to be in charged of the Cowboys, at times last year it appeared Rob Ryan was acting more like the head coach than Garrett. Even though Garrett has bristled at the notion that play calling should be taken out...

Bill Callahan Is Now Calling The Plays - And Yes, It Matters

The delivery of the news is "uniquely Jerry" where communication skills seem forever stuck in reverse, and complete with comedy ensuing.
