    So I assume it won't be the current playcaller.

    Does that mean Garrett can't hold his breath much longer?

    I dont think its going to be Callahan. I think the hold up is probably what to do with Callahan

    The longer it goes, the more likely it would be Callahan because the top guys available are busy getting jobs while Dallas is trying to decide if it wants to make a move.

    The more Dallas waits, the more it looks like the Cowboys are just trying to figure out if they want to add play-calling duties to someone already on staff who already holds the offensive coordinator title.

    Not only are the top coordinators being snatched up, but also the top OL coaches ... so it makes no sense to wait if you're going to make new hires (unless you are expecting someone new to hit the market).

    Anyone but Jason Garrett is a step forward.

    Making a decision doesn't mean it won't be Garrett.

    I heard Jerry Jones, Jr or Mickey Spagnola, but you know how rumors go. I will keep you guys updated.

    Not sure, but if the sources Fisher has are correct & a decision is about to be made, then you would think it would be Callahan right? Or is Jerry sneaky enough to bring in a guy without the media knowing?

    JG has been our play caller for 7 years now and it has been EXTREMELY vanilla and we have had very little success. So yeah, anyone but JG will be an upgrade.

    I am looking at it from the standpoint of if you have to contemplate who your playcaller is going to be, then you don't have a very good playcaller, presently; at least not one you are confident is getting the job done.

    I think it's an internal hire or it's someone that has been out of the spotlight for awhile. There have been no media leaks at all. Callahan sounds right. Lets hope if its him, he runs HIS offense.

    ....and I've felt that all along. What a typical JJ farce.:rolleyes:


    ...btw: I don't DISLIKE Callahan as he can call a pretty good game. He did with the Raiders and certainly at Nebraska, but the Huskers just couldn't stop anyone. My complaint is, why take all this time and drama and draw it out when they pretty much KNEW this was the direction they'd go? Dog and pony show for the media and fans....buncha crap.

    I hope it is Callahan, but keep the same offense.
