Following the Cowboys season ending loss to to the Redskins, coach Jason Garrett shot down talk of him giving up the offensive play calling duties next season.
A few days later Garrett seems to have had a chance of heart.
“Line 1 for me and the position that I’m in, is what is best for the Dallas Cowboys — in every way, shape and form and however we’re doing anything. Everything is on the table. If we think collectively that something can help us and doing something differently than what we’re doing now is going to make us a better football team, I’m open to it. And I’ve made no bones about that from the beginning. I just believe in that. I believe in that from the bottom of my heart. I’m trying to help this football team be the best it can be and everything is on the table.” said Garrett.
What happened between the change of heart by Garrett were comments from team owner Jerry Jones. Jones was upset that the team failed to make the playoffs again and vowed to make people uncomfortable around Valley Ranch.
The primary target of the Cowboys figures to be recently fired Chargers head coach Norv Turner. Turner was the offensive coordinator for two of the Cowboys Super Bowl titles, 1992 and 19993. Garrett was the backup quarterback on the 1993 team.
