i'm watching the PC now, jason looked ruffled. haven't seen him like this since his first year.
He knows that everybody else has gotten fired but him (Wade, Ryan, ect.....).
Aint nobody left to blame when we are sitting home come January............................he should be nervous..............LOL
maybe that's it. really shocking to see. he's been so confident with all of the PC's this year but he was shook today. Timmy Mac got under his skin as the constant questions about an offense he no longer controls.
expect changes with this offense soon. i think he's going to have a talk with callahan and romo this week. callahan, call more running plays. romo stop audibling so much.
Yea, there probably will be some changes made.
I do think he is still pissed about losing play calling duties. No matter what anybody says, no way Garrett gave up play calling because he wanted to.
that is the elephant in the room.
Well, I feared there would be a play calling struggle, and that coaches would check out and the season would go downhill. We'll see.
If we didn't lose the game I'd love the irony of Garrett feeling what we have felt about HIS offense for years
He throws his QB under the bus to escape blame. Last time I checked it's his offense and he's the HC. You mean to tell me, he doesn't have authority to say "hey, don't audible out of the run. I want to run more".
What a weasel.
I'm sure he is already mentally preparing to throw Callahan under the bus when the time comes if things don't straighten out.
What were the chances this thread wasn't going to contain an emotional overreaction to what was otherwise a straightforward and informative press conference? It's a shame, too, because there was a lot of good stuff to dig into with this quote from the OP:
Not sure where this teflon-coach stuff comes from, as the guy constantly says 'we' and often discusses frankly his own mistakes in these public pressers. I've heard almost every one of them, and I've entered into threads on the topic where people will just pretend he said otherwise because they have whatever weird hangup about the guy being smart and handling the stupid Dallas media appropriately.
But here's an actual quote that, I think, makes it pretty clear he had an issue with the decisions Tony was making in the no-huddle. I'd think that would be red meat for the sky-is-falling-at-1-1 crowd. So much better than a recirculation of the tired old not-taking-any-responsibility schtick.
Just watched the news conference....I didn't get the same impression that he is shaken up. I think he is looking for answers and I think we will see some changes.
He sounded more frustrated with the plays from the no-huddle to me, which in itself was sort of a big deal. He didn't sound shaken in the slightest. He was a bit defensive on the characterizations of some of the play calling, but, for the first time in his tenure, those calls he was defending weren't his, so I don't see how it could be defensiveness. Unless it was him sticking up for his coach.
I think the hurry-up play calling might have differed from what they'd game planned for, and he wasn't thrilled about it.
That makes a bit more sense to me....as far as the play calling not being what they game planned.
That's a big deal in and of itself, though, right? It's implicit criticism either of Romo or of the game plan, and, from context, it was most-likely criticism of Romo's decisions. That's not something JG does publicly very often, if at all.
We. As in "I do not take responibilty for this trash.
Ah. That's not what 'we' means, though. It means 'I, and one or more others.'
It certainly won't be as simple as that but it might be a start. Garrett's offense is really long in the tooth and we are long past the point of excuses. The team has been under his system for too long, with no championships to its credit. I do think that if Dallas does not find a "respectable" running game and more vertical passing by mid-season, another winter of discontent will come to fruition. It might be that Garrett just doesn't get it done in the end.
That's what he is saying. After years of doing the exact same thing himself he calls out Romo for doing it after two games.
Garrett is all about Garrett
this is so completely not true and anybody that knows Red will say that.
quoted for truth
Let's assume Romo changed a ton of plays at the line. We don't know that for sure but ok. The plays he did run were still Callahan/Garrett designs and for the plays he didn't run how do we know they would have been any better? Forgive me if I've seen enough of Garrett's playcalling for years to not bail on Romo/Callahan after two games. In the KC game take away the turnovers and dropped bomb and the offense puts up 22-30 on a good KC defense on the road. That's actually pretty good playcalling
