Recapping the Cowboys' week

IRVING, Texas -- Coming off a 49-17 loss, it was not a dull week for the Dallas Cowboys.

A lot of the talk was about whether Jason Garrett would (or could) take the playcalling over again. A lot of the talk dealt with Monte Kiffin’s porous defense.

Here’s this week’s recap:

Jean-Jacques Taylor wants to see Garrett take the playcalling duties back.

The Cowboys have to get Dez Bryant and Jason Witten more involved.

The return of a healthy Miles Austin would be a boost to the offense. Seriously.

Monte Kiffin’s defense is not very good. He knows it has to be better.

Bryant with some good deeds on the bye week.

Gavin Escobar’s rookie season has gotten off to a slow start, but Garrett is preaching patience with the tight end.

The cautionary tale of Sam Hurd.
