IRVING, Texas – The day after Jason Garrett acknowledged that Bill Callahan would call plays this season, two players involved in the change don’t believe it matters much.
“This system has been in place for a long time and we’ve had success with it,” tight end Jason Witten said. “That was part of the process they worked out. It’s our job to execute the plays and keep getting more familiar with the system.”
The types of plays Callahan calls in certain downs and distances could be different than what Garrett has done, but Dez Bryant notices nothing different.
“Truth be told, I can’t really tell,” Bryant said, “but I’m running the same exact plays.”
There were some issues with the mechanics on Wednesday. Callahan was calling the plays to quarterback coach Wade Wilson, who called them into the quarterbacks. In the first team red-zone period, the offense had a delay of game and needed a timeout two plays later.
