Is any playcaller a good playcaller in Dallas?
What did Callahan do so well in 2012 for the Cowboys that he deserves to get a promotion and call the plays in 2013?
Let’s say Callahan becomes the playcaller, do the Cowboys have to find another offensive line coach? If not, can an O-line coach and coordinator handle all he has to handle between series and work the adjustments with the line? Several people at Valley Ranch believe Wes Phillips, the assistant line coach, has a bright future. Is he ready for more responsibility?
Maybe naming Callahan the new play caller works out in 2013, but it doesn’t answer many immediate questions. In fact, it might just lead to more.
I'm with Todd here, folks. Of course, I'm not necessarily in the camp that believes taking playcalling duties away from Garrett is among the Cowboys' biggest offseason needs. But assuming they're looking into that, I think Todd's points about Callahan as a candidate are well taken. He should probably do the job for which he was hired -- fixing the offensive line -- before he gets a promotion.
