Jason Garrett steadfast in refusing to say how play-calling mechanics will work

The Cowboys' play-caller isn't undecided. It's unannounced.

The mystery has been ongoing since the Senior Bowl when Jerry Jones hinted that coach Jason Garrett no longer would call the offensive plays, a role Garrett has held since 2007 when he became offensive coordinator. Bill Callahan, who became offensive coordinator/offensive line coach in 2012, is expected to have a bigger hand in the offense regardless whether he is actually calling the plays. Quarterback Tony Romo also will have more say.

Garrett, though, repeatedly has refused to definitively say how the mechanics will work on game day. He was asked again Tuesday if the Cowboys still were working on the mechanics of the play-calling.

"Yeah," Garrett answered. "I think that's a fair way to say it. ...I think we have a pretty good plan, and we’ll execute it as the offseason progresses."

For his part, Romo said he doesn't care who calls the plays.

"That’s a big topic for you guys," Romo said of the media. "I’m sure you’ll wear that one out until [it's announced]. I mean, I’m just the quarterback, and I’m just trying to continue to get better and improve and help this team."

I say it will be Garrett continuing to call the plays. If he's to go down. Then let him go down doing it his way.
