Callahan has already said that he is quite familiar with the Coryell number system and is comfortable with it because Brian Schottenheimer used it when he was with the Jets.
I think some people are confusing the idea that Callahan calling plays means that he will switch this offense to his WCO from his Raiders days.
Not only does it not make any sense at all, but Callahan's offense from the Raiders is actually Jon Gruden's playbook.
If we were going to go to a WCO why not just hire Jon Gruden and be done with it already?
The other argument I have is why would you want to completely change the entire offense at this point in Romo's career?
The Ravens won the SB with the Coryell so it really isn't a system/scheme issue isn't it?
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
