    Is it possible to get an explanation for the change at receiver coach? Didn't Coach Robinson finally get through to Bryant?

    Nick: We’ll ask that question to Jerry the next time he does a press conference. I doubt that you’ll get the answer you want. But you’re right, it does seem a little odd. Not only did Bryant have a breakout year, but we saw improvements from Dwayne Harris[IMG] and Cole Beasley[IMG] was able to contribute, too. Even Kevin Ogletree[IMG] put up career numbers. The fact Robinson is being used as a consultant could mean a lot of things. But it doesn’t sound like he’s interested in finding another job. So maybe he was looking to scale back on his own.

    Rowan: As you mentioned, this move doesn’t seem to be performance-based. Bryant unarguably had his best season as an NFL receiver, and Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley both flashed ability and earned playing time after developing throughout the season. It seemed more like the move was made more in Robinson’s interests. Jerry Jones said at the Senior Bowl that any move with Robinson would have less to do with his skill and more to do with Robinson’s personal interests.

    Could be what Robinson wants. As a consultant he may not be putting in the same time as he would as a position coach. Don't know just taking a guess on this

    The life of a coach is a tough one. Travel, ridiculous hours, little time off, not much sleep. Maybe the guy is just tired.

    It's already been mentioned that Robinson has health related concerns.

    Once again, it looks like some Cowboys staff writers are less informed than many on this forum.

    Garrett and JJ basically said a week or two ago that whether or not Robinson returned was his decision.
