Staubach OK With Playcalling Change

Roger Staubach sees an upside to Jason Garrett giving up playcalling duties



    Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach doesn’t have a problem with the Dallas Cowboys’ decision to relieve head coach Jason Garrett of playcalling duties and hand them over to offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Bill Callahan. In fact, he seems to be a fan of the move.

    But like most of us, the drawn-out and altogether strange way the Cowboys let the news out left Staubach, undoubtedly one of the greatest players in franchise history, scratching his head a bit.

    I don’t think it’s a bad move,” Staubach said this week, via the Dallas Morning News. “The way they told it to us was a little confusing. No one asked my advice on it. I just read the paper.”

    Like owner and general manager Jerry Jones, Staubach can see an upside to Garrett being a so-called “walk-around coach.”

    “Jason is a class act,” Staubach said. “He’s a competitor. And Jerry loves Jason. It’s not all bad for Jason to see the bigger picture and not worry about play-calling”
