    We left for the Senior Bowl on Monday in search of answers.

    All we got from Dallas Cowboys officials was confusion.

    What we do know is that Jerry Jones has hinted that Jason Garrett won't call plays in 2013. Jones didn't say who would call plays, but all indications are that offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will take over those duties.

    It would appear to be a step back for Garrett, but Jones has tried to spin the situation so that it doesn't look like a demotion for his head coach. Jones' preference to have a "walk-around" coach represents a change in thinking. It was just a few months ago that Jones shared a story of how former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said it was best for a head coach to call plays on either the offense or defense. That way, Gibbs said, it gives the appearance the coach had a hand in a victory or defeat.

    Jones hired head coaches Chan Gailey, Wade Phillips and Garrett under this model. Now it seems he is switching gears. Jones points out that Garrett will still have a hand in the day-to-day operations of the football team. Well, that's fine and good, but he's always had that.

    Garrett has two years remaining on his contract, and if this whole thing doesn't work out with him in 2013 it's clear he won't get another year to fix it. Jones clearly appears to be taking more power away from Garrett by the day.

    Actually, we now know the STs coach.

    What remaining is the RBs coach? Gash maybe

    WRs coach? H Jackson maybe

    TE coach? Wade's son?

    As for who is calling the plays, I don't care. Just get me a better OL and it won't really matter.

    Watkins is a tool.

    Instead of making like a real reporter and actually doing some research, he just throws a couple of half-a$$ed questions up in the air.

    so Gibbs talked Jerry into hiring hc coaches that can call plays, so that the team can be in a state of confusion, did Gibbs himself call plays?

    Well, if there was one person who was devoid of answers, it'd be Watkins.

    I thought Stephen had a weekly radio show?

    He's the future you know. Until hell freezes over it's the Jones's team.
