Former Florida State LB Kendall Smith has been hired as the Dallas Cowboys’ new assistant strength and conditioning coach.


Hopefully he can make sure our players actually stretch this time around.

Not that surprising. Witten doesn't seem the type to throw anyone under the bus.

In the NFL ( or NBA and MLB) you hardly dont see anyone thrown under the bus ( not good business to do so)

I will be soooo pissed if Garrett is calling plays next season. He cant call plays to save his life. The only reason our offense has been successful is the talent he has out there running his poorly planned plays has been good.

"I don't want to definitely say one way or the other. We're trying to move in that direction," Garrett said of the play-calling mystery. "Bill and I have talked about different ways we can do it.


Quote:
Just so you know, Garrett did reference the "mechanics" of making the switch about a hundred times Wednesday during his first news conference in 44 days. As you would expect, Garrett refused to divulge exactly what that means.

Quote:
“We’ll probably play a preseason game in early August, and hopefully we’ll have it worked out by then,” Garrett said.


Quote:
Garrett answered more than 10 questions relating to play-calling without ever naming the next play-caller.



Sooooo whats going on? I thought it was pretty much a given that Callahan was going to call plays. Now Garrett isnt sure whos going to be calling plays. Doesnt sound like he wants to give up those duties. All these off season changes will be for nothing if Redball is still the offensive coordinator.

If you listened to the press conference, he essentially hinted that Callahan will be the playcaller.

For whatever reason, he just hasn't announced it yet.

How can an nfl team not know the "mechanics" of how the play calling will work ? This reeks. Is Garrett trying to decide if he will call the plays on 3rd n long ? I mean cmon. What other team operates like that ?

Teams that lose consistently. We're quickly turning into the Raiders.

From my experience in the NFL, the coaches as a collective group have always put the game plans together and the play caller relies on their input throughout the week but in the game as well. I remember in Green Bay how Andy Reid, Jon Gruden and Sherm Lewis would not only get the plan together but would install it during the week but on game day, Mike Holmgren took the play card and called the plays


Quote:
I think you will see Garrett take the same approach this summer in training camp and allow Callahan to calls these games (preseason) and they will make their adjustments from there. As long as things are ironed out before the season starts that’s all that really matters.


Basically, since becoming OC, Garrett has always taken input from his offensive assistants in putting together a game plan, but he called the plays. He said since becoming HC, he has distributed those duties more and more each year. He said that the hiring of an asst. OL coach should allow Callahan more time to devote to the entire offense. Essentially, there's a few things to sort out still (likely from us having an entirely new offensive staff aside from Callahan and Phillips), but it's very likely that Callahan will be the play caller when the season starts in September.

Broaddus also gives insight into what we can expect on offense if (when) Callahan takes over playcalling duties this season.

What Garrett seemingly is trying to do isn't something new. It's been done before by successful coaches across the league.


Broaddus also gives insight into what we can expect on offense if (when) Callahan takes over playcalling duties this season.


One fundamental issue here: having the card with the plays on it only has a positive impact if the person calling the plays knows what plays to call and when to call them. Garrett fails in that area and has consistently failed there since arriving in Dallas as a coach. So until he learns how to call plays, it doesn't matter who is creating the play card.

Believe me, I agree wholeheartedly that Garrett needs to give play calling duties to someone else. Listening to his press conference yesterday, I believe he intends to. With basically an entirely new offensive staff (aside from Callahan and Phillips), I think they still have some things to sort out but by the sound of things we will know for certain by the time preseason rolls around and I would be very surprised if Garrett is calling plays this year.

He knows how to call plays. Obvious run formation on first down in the first quarter. Play called run. Obvious pass formation. Pass on 2nd and 3rd down. By mid second quarter, completely abandon the run.

How bout running and passing out of the same formations. It would be terrible to make the defense think.

Quote:
It all runs contrary to the image that emerged of the team right after the end of the season. A cynical response to all this is to presume the responses were coordinated and coached in a form of damage control. Actually, I do think there was a deliberate nature to the way all the assistants talked about the team and their head coach. But I don't think it was forced on them. I think they chose to do it to try and correct an image of things that they felt was very mistaken. Maybe I am too optimistic, but I see it as rallying around someone you have faith in, and a group of coaches coming together, some reforging old bonds, the rest building new ones. It portends some good things for the team. At least, it looks like the kind of place I would want to work. And nothing like the way it was portrayed just a few weeks ago.


Unique take.

I'm really surprised and pleased we were able to sign Mackenzy Bernadeau. He's such a tremendous talent and athlete. Obviously I'm kidding. Does anyone ever say, well we had to hire somebody.
