It seems like if you’re having minicamps and installing plans for the coming season, you’d know what the chain of command might be.
Apparently not in Dallas.
When Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was asked Saturday if he knew who was going to call offensive plays this year, he didn’t offer a concrete answer.
“We haven’t made a decision on that,” Garrett said, via Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.
If that’s true, and Garrett wasn’t just trying to duck an uncomfortable topic, the Cowboys may have bigger issues than imagined.
While it’s easy to suggest that it’s just a rookie minicamp, and there’s no need for detailed game-plans at the moment, it still speaks to organizational tension.
Garrett would clearly prefer to hang onto his original responsibility, simply because anyone who has ever had a responsibility doesn’t want it taken away.
So whether it’s going to be Garrett, Bill Callahan, Tony Romo, or Jerry Jones with a Madden controller in his luxury box, at some point they need to figure it out.
