It’s not that Troy Aikman doesn’t think Scott Linehan can do a good job.
He just thinks too many people have been doing that job lately.
The former Cowboys quarterback said he was concerned about the constant play-calling changes on his old team, which has passed from Jason Garrett to Bill Callahan to what appears to be Linehan in rapid succession.
“I like Scott. I like Scott as an offensive guy,” Aikman said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “He’s done a good job at other places he’s been. I think that they’re trying to find their way. There was the thought that last year with the changes that were made on both sides of the ball that there would be improvement, but really there was regression for both units. Now, more changes again.
“Changes aren’t necessarily bad, but I think there’s something to be said for continuity. But I’ve been a part of teams that had change that really benefitted from that. Hopefully the Cowboys will as well.”
The team hasn’t made any announcements, but Linehan has been at Cowboys headquarters participating in meetings the last two days.
And if this round of changes doesn’t bring a new result, the next round of changes might be more sweeping.
