    Former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown recently joined Sirius XM NFL Radio. Here are some highlights:

    On Bill Callahan having to share offensive responsibilities with Jason Garrett and Tony Romo:

    “I know him as being a great play-caller when he is calling his own system. I don’t what he is going to be able to cal and what he’s not going to be able to call here so from that standpoint, it can be too many cooks in the kitchen then you’ve got a problem. I think this guy when they looking at his calling record, he’s one of the best. Those four years he was with the Ravens, he gave all the runs. The six years he was with the Raiders, two years with (Jon) Gruden and two years by himself, he called all the runs. When he became the head coach, he called the passes too. I think from that standpoint, we had one of the best offenses in the league that year. They could do the same kind of offense with Romo as we did with (Rich) Gannon. If I was them, I would let him do it himself because I think he’s quite capable of getting that done.”

    On the Cowboys going with more two tight end sets:

    Maybe b/c Romo has this quirky personality trait not many athletes do anymore.....it's called humility!!

    So the same Tim Brown that claimed Callahan "sabotaged" the Raiders by completely changing the game plan, the Fri night before Super Bowl XXXVII, suggesting it was because of his disdain for Al Davis, now has a complete 180 degree opinion of the man?

    Maybe Tim just intends to lay big $$$ against Dallas all season? :D

    No, this is another Tim Brown who just happens to live near the DMN office. Big fan of Bill Callahan.

    That's exactly what I was thinking as I read it. Are our memories supposed to be that short or is Brown just trying to make a buck by pulling anything out his backside?

    Maybe he is thinking "anyone but garrett" (as anyone with common sense would) and that is clouding his judgement

    Both of his positions seem like flip-flops, until you consider that both are "anti-Cowboys" at a much higher level.

    Politics indeed!

    Tim Brown must have memory issues from his playing days. I wonder if he's a part of the concussion lawsuits.

    So do you all agree with him or not? I think what TBrown said was sound. I originally thought Callahan calling plays would mean he brought in his system. But, its Garrett's system, although I hope he is able to add his own wrinkles in there too.

    I like our offense, and I don't want to see us changing systems right now, under any circumstances. Changing the defense is upheaval enough.
    Either way, it's a dumb thing for Brown to say, since it was never on the table. I also don't give a whit about running the ball any more than we normally do. Last year was an aberration in that regard because of the C and RB injuries. Fix the passing game issues with pressure and WRs and the turnover problems, and we'll have plenty of opportunities to run the ball at the end of games.

    I see what you mean. Basically, whatever system is in place, we got to EXECUTE it.

    Why would anyone agree with a guy who accused Callahan of sabotaging SB game so that Callahan's good friend Gruden can win a SB and showed disdain toward Callahan and then say Callahan is an offensive guru and should be in charge of offense, I doubt he knows Cowboys offensive philosophy anymore than most of Cowboys fans.

    That's *my* biggest problem with Garrett as an OC. I don't understand why we've had these WR problems for so long. It's right up his alley, and it's his responsibility to fix. Dez, I understand, because he's such a game breaking physical talent, you just give him the time to make the mistakes and you live with it and hope. But KO et. al...? Especially when you see how effective Tony is with a guy like Robinson in the lineup.

    And those guys aren't normally that expensive. Even Robinson, we should have probably had a club option on a second year on him if he worked out. Why take a flier investing that much time and energy into a WR learning the system, only to put him on national tv 6 times and then let him cash a career check someplace else? Doesn't make sense to me.

    Well maybe Brown is saying Callahan is a genius play caller, just dont let the opponent but a good friend of his. LOL I kid I kid. I hadnt really heard about that until now. Sounds totally ridiculous if I am understanding correctly.

    Let me go ahead and confirm something which I'm sure you all know already: Tim Brown is your classic example of an ex-jock who says stuff just to say it. Pay him no mind.

    Tim Brown must be signed to that players vs NFL concussion lawsuit because it wasn't 2 months ago he and Jerry Rice threw Callahan under the bus. No coach would ever throw a Super Bowl, Brown must have severe head trauma to change his opinion so soon.
