Dallas Cowboys Need to Make Decision Regarding Offensive Play-Calling
The world’s sorriest excuse for a professional sports general manager is at it again. Dallas Cowboys boss Jerry Jones is at it again–a week ago he said a decision had been made regarding his team’s offensive play-caller and now he’s gone back on that after all the talk about him dictating his head coach, Jason Garrett. This is yet another perfect example of why the Cowboys can’t win–Jones is a moron who has no idea how to run a football team.
Jones first announced on his weekly Dallas radio show that Garrett would not be calling the offensive plays in 2013 (Hallelujah!) and then said that the man who already has the title of offensive coordinator–Bill Callahan–will actually be fulfilling that role this season. Naturally, Jones conformed to the hounding of the media that he was a dictator and didn’t allow his team to function properly, so now Jerry says he’s going to let Garrett pick who calls the offensive plays.
It’s things like this that keep the Cowboys–no matter how much talent is on their roster–from winning football games. The message is never clear and things are always changing based on Jones’ mood each day.
Callahan should call the offensive plays because he’s the offensive coordinator. Garrett dang sure shouldn’t be calling any plays (he shouldn’t be allowed near the facilities, for the matter, but that’s another Rant), so why in the world is he choosing the person who will? That makes absolutely no sense, but that’s the “logic”–or lack thereof–behind Jones’ bizarre thought process.
So the Cowboys’ offense, which has the potential to be one of the NFL‘s best, will be led by a man whom Garrett designates. Lord help us all.
Six players who can replace Junior Galette for the New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints had an unexpectedly exciting final weekend before training camp, parting ways with embattled 2013 and 2014 sack leader Junior Galette due to a series of off-field incidents. At any rate, the Saints have six candidates in place to pick up the slack and try to reproduce Galette’s tremendous pressure coming off the edge. They are a diverse group of highly-touted rookies, promising second-year athletes, and seasoned veterans in the twilight of their careers. Read More

Breaking down Dri Archer and his role(s) on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster
It's amazing how much changes in one year. Last training camp, writers like me were simply gushing over the possibilities Dri Archer's 4.26 speed could bring to the Steelers offense in 2014. The only caveat was his size (5'8”, 173 lbs). To compensate for Archer's lack of girth and muscle and to best utilize his speed, getting Archer out in space, away from those big, angry defenders looking to throw him around like a rag doll, would be key to him making an impact in his rookie season and beyond. Will he find a spot on the Steelers 53-man roster? Read More
