That being the case it doesn't sound unreasonable to me that JJ would have wanted Garrett to call the plays when he was hired to be HC.
Jerry said he wanted his HC to call the plays for one side of the ball.
That didn't happen in 2007 or 2008.
That happened with Wade in 2009 and 2010. I would say the only reason it did happen in 2009 was because Wade was trying to save his job by putting on this big and bad "toughy" face and part of that included taking more authority over what happened on game day.
Happened with Garrett in 2011 and 2012.
The unreasonable part comes in when Jerry says that he had a change of heart regarding Jason calling the plays now because offenses have become so complex that it's better if Jason delegate the task to someone else.
When did this happen? When did offenses become too complex?
I think its unreasonable to assume that Jerry really cares one way or the other so long as the results are good. If not, then he cares.
Don't think for a moment that if Dallas were to go out and hire a HC who had some serious play calling credentials that he wouldn't change his tune and say that he prefers the HC call his own plays again.
