    They could bring some one in with the title of asst head coach or something like that.

    Sounds like speculation more than anything. I have to see it to believe it.

    This staff and this roster will continue to be an 8-8 mix.

    Title should be changed this is misleading. There is no news here.

    ...like many other OC and DC who pipe up on the sidelines of other teams and petition their HC for calls or decisions.

    Being a coach in this league and running an NFL team is a huge endeavor. There is no shame in admitting you need help and additional voices.

    If coordinators are not needed then why aren't there other NFL teams who only have one coach? A HC coach who is also the OC and DC?

    Could it possibly be that the jobs are too big for one person? Is it possible to be a good HC and have a OC and a DC?

    Let's not take away a potential positive from our coach because there may have been mistakes in the past. Let's create and search for improvements.

    The Texans have great depth on their team..when one of our guys get hurt the Cowboys troll PS rosters because we have no quality depth.

    The Texans are playing flat. No urgency. They were steamrolling & now they are getting steamrolled.

    Maybe they got cocky. Thought the road to the SB could not possibly go thru any city but Houston?

    Jimmy Robinson is the assistant head coach. Bill Callahan is the offensive coordinator.

    How about we get better players?

    What we really need is a real GM.

    Most of this will be almost meaningless until the decisions at the top change.

    The decline of Phillip rivers and the Bolts offense has more to do with decisions to let people like Sproles and Vincent Jacson walk than Norv Turner. Their o-line was decimated as well. I don't know one person, other than the geniuses on this forum, that doesn't respect Norval as a play caller. Have Sunday ticket, and whether its Simms, Fouts, GRuden, Collinsworth, every analyst I've heard do a Chargers game in the last 5 years puts him at the top or near the top as a play caller.

    ...that's what all sideline coaches do. They are allowed on the sidelines to do what they think is right.

    Do you remember a game where Todd Haley was standing behind Parcells yelling at the ref while Parcells was trying to talk to the ref?

    Parcells turn around and shoved Haley back. Coaches yell out things they feel needs to be expressed in the interest of the team.

    Things like "timeout", "challenge", etc. If it is good enough for other teams it may be an improvement for the Cowboys.

    I'm thinking status quo if that happens.

    Isn't Jerry the one who insisted on his head coach calling plays? Something about being able to benchmark his performance or some other BS?

    Fine I'm absolutely fine with this. Garrett's biggest problem is his play calling, all the other team stuff we've seen him actually grow. But please, bring anyone, I can't watch this same exact gameplan since 07 for another year

    Won't matter. Scheme is too much of an issue.

    Interesting to see how many more excuses Jones can come up with that don't point back to himself. Forcing Garrett to hire a playcaller is an obvious one, but there aren't many obvious ones remaining left.

    In your mind it is.

    I couldn't possibly disagree more.

    ...don't make for better timeouts. Better players can't always cover for good game plans by the other coordinator.

    Better players can't design plays for teams when half your roster is injured.

    Make small continuous improvements and take opportunities when they arise. This isn't Madden. You can only add where there is opportunity.

    Right now the opportunity is on the coaching side. The players is a little later.
