    It seemed all but assumed that head coach Jason Garrett would be relieved of playcalling duties in 2013, but to hear Garrett himself, that’s far from a done deal.

    Garrett told reporters this week that he may still be calling the shots for Dallas next year.

    "The job of a head coach is a significant one with a lot of responsibilities," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "The job of an offensive coordinator/play-caller is a significant one with a lot of responsibilities. And I understand it because I have been doing it for the last two and half years. There is a reason that 28 of the 32 head coaches don’t do it. But there are some compelling examples as to why you do do it. It's been something that has been relatively successful for us."

    Uh, maybe. Dallas has finished 8-8 in each of the two years that Garrett has been running the show. If he does give up playcalling duties in 2013, it’s likely that offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will take over.
