    This really should end all the whining about run/pass coordinators.

    But it won't, sadly.

    I'm not trying to deflect anything. Jason Garrett having a passing game coordinator is the equivalent of Bill Parcells having a pass rush coordinator. It's indefensible.

    My bet is Jerry was going for the "For the Most Coordinators" year award! ;)

    Is it possible to go shotgun 100% of the snaps?

    Ugh.

    Ayy i'm with you there. And I have a feeling Life After Romo is coming sooner than we would've liked.

    The Seattle Seahawks have a defensive passing game coordinator. Pete Carroll is a defensive coach.

    Ron Rivera has a pass defense coordinator. He is a defensive coach.

    Some of you guys get way too caught up in titles.

    Hopefully, he's not directly involved in play calling. Otherwise, without some sort of restructure in sideline responsibilities, this might be a case of "too many chefs."

    I think there would be a restructure of some sort.

    Exactly.

    Its like playing backyard football with your brothers, you just snap the ball and run around until somebody gets open............don't need no stinking game plan.

    So, in the red zone, we showed a lot of improvement in 2013...credit Callahan I assume? but, we stalled outside of the last 20 yards....

    ...in comes Linehan who was good at moving the ball....thus, they probably have someone up in the booth looking at the line of scrimmage (probably spalding) and if they are not in the redzone, the "switch" it turned on the headset of Linehan...then, they get in the red zone, and spalding throws the switch to Callahan's head set...he gets to take over inside the 20.....

    ...so, now we have to rely on spalding paying attention and not picking his nose so we can run an offense

    Spalding = "In-game, offensive head-set coordinator"

    I agree, at first I was puzzled with this move but the more I think about it I start to like it.

    We are one guard away from a elite running game, so yes, lets go more pass.

    Agreed.

    Side note: I'm still worried about our depth.

    It makes sense. Dez fans like myself should see a nice change from this.

    I particularly want to see better plays on third down.

    To get Megatron the ball as much as he does, he probably encourages taking chances in one way or another to get the ball to your playmaker. I'm tired of 3 yard passes to Witten on 3rd and 8.

    It's the Linehan spice the team is missing from its' secret sauce.

    The Guards they have were very good in the run blocking by the end of the season. They are, however, 1 injury away from disaster with Phil Costa as the only interior backup.
