Not sure Bill Callahan is answer either
|ESPN's Chris Mortensen joins Galloway & Company and says that the Cowboys could probably get a first- and third-round pick if they were to trade Tony Romo. But, he also says that there's no chance of that happening. |
Callahan’s offense was a West-Coast scheme, shorter, timing routes and a different philosophy. The Cowboys’ offense is based on the Don Coryell system and a number tree with a more intermediate and vertical passing game.
Callahan has been with the Cowboys for a season, but clearly he was the coordinator in name only. He was not involved much in the passing game. Despite the title, he was the running game coordinator. He would be in Jason Garrett’s ear with different runs but he wasn’t making suggestions about pass plays.
This isn’t to say Callahan can’t call the plays. It’s that this would not be an offense in which he is completely familiar and the Cowboys are not going to become a West Coast offense.
If there’s one thing we’ve seen with a Garrett offense, it’s that they can pile up yards. They just don’t score enough points.
If the Cowboys want to look at ways to improve their point totals, steal from teams like New England, New Orleans and Green Bay.
That’s another story for another time this offseason.
But for this story, I don’t think Callahan is the answer either.
