Once again it appear as though Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was right on the money when he spoke about the Cowboys offense. As usual, Witten gives every Cowboys fan the truth, which is why when he talks, everyone should listen. When asked about the Cowboys offense last week and who should be calling plays, Witten put it perfectly:
“We’ve got to execute those plans better. We’ve got good plays, and we’ve got some good players, but we’ve got to do a good enough job of executing time and time again. That’s where I focus is on as players, I think, and that’s where it needs to be moving forward.”
In other words, unless the players execute better, it won’t matter who’s calling the plays, which is basically the same thing I wrote a few weeks ago. In the NFL, everyone has to work together and it doesn’t matter if you have the best play caller in the in world if your offensive line can’t block the defense or if your running backs fumble the ball on every play.
The same goes for the defense, it doesn’t matter who the Cowboys have as their coordinator, the bottom line is if the players don’t make plays then it won’t matter who their coach is. I’m not saying that coaching is overrated but if you don’t have the players to execute, then all the coaching in the world isn’t going to help.
I am a proponent of having anyone besides Jason Garrett call plays for the Dallas Cowboys but even though someone new will call plays for the Cowboys offense, don’t expect much to change if the players don’t execute better. If you don’t take my word for it, take Jason Witten’s.
