    I see what you're saying here, but I don't really consider it "forcing" him to stay when he's under contract. Callahan's been in the league a long time. He signed a contract. I'd expect him to be a pro and uphold his end of the deal and honor it. He's getting paid (most likely very well) to do a job.

    He didn't start or end the season. The OL was at their best late in the season long after Waters was gone.

    Well..

    This has happened before.

    We have weakened ourselves over the years by letting coaches go.

    And it set us back each time it happened.

    Ditka, Reeves, Johnson, Butch Davis, Wannstead...

    ..I think Jones not letting it happen helps the team in saying..

    'Hey, you came here, paid you well..finish the contract and perform like we hired you for'..

    not scurry off with your money and no results.

    And Callahan has definitely underachieved seriously in his roles with Garrett

    He gets one more season to take care of business and then he can go with a handshake and more added to his body of work.

    Nor did he play the majority of snaps at that position.

    The first part's irrelevant. The Cowboys felt the need to replace 3/5ths of their OL. That should tell you what they thought of the talent vs. the coaching.

    The second part's an opinion. I'm not sure I agree with it. In fact, I don't.

    I agree for the most part but what about those older Denver zone blocking schemes that continually produce successful rushers? Would a man line scheme require more talent (honest q) because it is based off of 1 on 1 matchups more so?

    Contracts...professionals use 'em for a reason...mainly to avoid having whims dictate action.

    It appears Marinilli would disagree

    Well then he would be wrong.

    I realize he's got some Coaching God status around here, why I don't know, but if a player lacks the talent to play in this league no coach will change that. Including the guy who helped oversee the worst defense in team history in 2013.

    some talent along with some coaching would fall short of some talent and great coaching I would argue
