But offensive coordinator/playcaller Bill Callahan said it was his fault and that he shouldn’t have given Romo the option to change the play.
“I put that on myself just because it was built into the play,” Callahan said after Thursday’s practice. “That’s how I look at it. We can do better. I can do better, certainly.”
“I just would say if we had to do it all over again, we certainly do it different,” Callahan said. “That was the design of the play and we certainly can do better. Certainly, I can.”
It’s easy to second guess Garrett, for not calling a timeout after seeing Romo check out of the play, and Callahan for using a play with the option of passing the ball when running might have been a better option.
“The reason why [a tag is] on, it gets him out of issues and problems and things that can create a bad effect on a play,” Callahan said. “If the box is loaded on one side and you try to run there and numerically they have too many people there, it’s just common sense. You want to hand the ball off in front of an unblocked defender and have him blow up your back and create a fumble? [Say] you ran the ball though, but the result wouldn’t have been good.”
Callahan needs to be fired, along with everyone else in Dallas. He is probably taking the blame for Garrett, because just a few weeks ago, they were saying that Garrett would be calling the plays again. I don’t know who to believe….
