    Norv runs a similiar offense to what we have here already. One plus side to Norv's offense is he runs the damn ball.

    Missleading thread title.

    Its not the Cowboys who are considering a change at OC its his own idea.

    And have the offense learn and adapt to an entire new scheme, set them back from what they know. Even though it hasn't gone well.

    I know what you mean and somewhat agree, but sometimes you need to stay with what you been doing, make better adjustments from a fresh perspective, but not an entire new scheme.
    Norv may not be the answer, but you never know. However, I would like to see a fresh appraoch with a similar style. Maybe they need better play calling only, someone that just focuses on the offense.

    Now on defense...yes need a better scheme.....

    Great point. Rivers has been regressing year after year. He was once a top 10 but is falling fast.

    So basically Jerry is stripping Garrett of all playcalling duties without firing him.


    This is so dumb, if Garrett is not going to call the plays then what the hell do we need him for? To be a leader of men?

    What has he lead these men to besides back to back .500 seasons?

    ...I would be looking for.

    A teacher of men.

    A great tactician.

    Excellent at identifying patterns and calling quick adjustments.

    A counterpoint in opinions to the HC without being combative.

    A consensus builder.

    Take a look at how well Haslett brought his defence to play yesterday. He is a great coach and he showed how well a coordinator can be to a team.

    I find it funny how the media posted yesterday the fact that the Cowboys were the most valued sports franchise in the NFL, but we often are discussing on this forum the merits of adding more coaches.

    It clearly can't be a money issue.

    I dont think Callahan will be calling plays. As the report says Dallas will hire somebody to call plays. Callahan is already employed

    Yea..execution, game management & adjustments are his Achilles heel areas. You know all those things coaches can control that often make the difference between winning & losing..

    So let's let him learn while we continue to struggle. Oh wait he's NOT learning. Oh well.

    It's not really clear from the report what is going to happen other than that Garrett is continuing as HC.

    Then he'll need to be fired as OC unless they let 'passing game coordinator' beneficiary of nepotism John Garrett do it for some stupid reason.

    Is this new OC going to tell Garrett when to throw a challenge flag, when he should call time-outs, tell him not to punt from the opponents 34 yd line with less than 1 minute left in the half, teach him about situational football?

    Garrett has failed in a lot more than just play-calling/play design.

    Really, they have injuries, like us, on the defense. Not a fair comparison.

    ...if he gets some help with execution and adjustments (OC) he will be able to more than handle game mgmt.

    With more people you get better eyes and ears on the game to help identify unique and not so unique situations that arise.

    There's no reason why a Garrett led Cowboys team with an OC on the sidelines calling the plays, not named Garrett, would not be an improvement.

    We've been under Garrett's offense for 6 or 7 years.


    He sucks. That's all there is to it. Be delusional and defend him if you want but he is awful.

    Even Nate Newton is ripping him right now and he never calls out Garrett.
