    Who would be candidates to become O-Coordinator other than having Garrett do it again?

    Id be fine with norv turner as OC as long as garrett keeps his hands off that process.

    I suggest that we all have positive thoughts and just focus on Jerry firing Opie as soon as possible. We will be a better Team in the long run. I just cannot bear the thought on Opie on the sidelines next year.

    I think this is somewhat of an unlikely hypothetical. I think for Garrett to stay, we probably have to make the playoffs given the current state of the NFC East. And if we do that, it's going to be at the strength of our offense given the current state of the defense. Which would lead me to believe that Callahan would stay in that situation.

    Norv isnt going to be taking orders from Opie any time soon.

    As to the OP, we all know this is what is going to happen...Callahan will be the sacrificial lamb for a mediocre scheme.

    After blatantly scapegoating the defensive coordinator last year - and admitting it was probably a mistake this week - I don't know that Jerry can get away with doing it to the OC this year.

    Norv is already the OC for Cleveland. This is his 1st year there. I'm sure that he signed a multi-year contract.

    The problem is that Callahan is calling plays from someone else's offense. If we are stuck with Garrett which makes me nauseous and they bring in another OC, they need to let him run his own offense.

    Regardless If this is the best that callahan can do moving on from him is justified.

    So bring him in as assistant hc or whatever.

    I think it would be like Garrett to Wade. Jones was Jason's boss, not Wade for the most part.

    If Norv(too late now) was brought on, he would probably answer to Jones, not Garrett with the notion of him eventually taking over HC.

    It is sad just typing and/or reading my reply. There seems to be no order or stability in this organization. Coaches being hired/fired and before/after other coaches and none of them have final authority.

    But I agree to an extent, Callahan most likely is this seasons scapegoat :eek:

    I said "wow" several times when I saw how badly he called plays and executed his offense. Id be happier with JG than Norv.

    Do you? It would technically be a promotion from OC. If the Browns gave their blessing and most teams do in similar situations then he could accept an assistant HC job here.

    I would want somebody that has similar blocking schemes. I think the O-Line's play has improved. They protect better and when the playcalling isn't completely predictable and Murray is in the game, the run blocking is much better.

    I strongly feel that continuity is important in football, but particularly important on the O-Line. Having guys switch schemes and philosophies tends to get you in trouble more often than not. I would also want an O-Coordinator that isn't afraid to speak up and has carte blanche to keep Romo in check when it comes to audibling. And even then, I don't know if that would work. As we've seen from All-22 clips, guys are getting open...but Romo isn't seeing them or is afraid to pull the trigger.

    Who cares what Aikman thinks? He talks up his buddy Jason too (not too much anymore..heh heh)

    Time to forget the 90's ever happened. From Campo to Garrett, what an albatross that team was long after it was disassembled.

    You ignored the question, and named his most successful QB he worked with as proof. Any idiot could of called plays for that 90s team, and they still would of won. Aikman was also, pretty accurate.

    My point being just because Rivers sucked under Norv doesnt mean Romo would.

    But your right who cares what Aikman says I should value the opinion of posters here over his. What was I thinking.
