Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett gave up, or was stripped of, play-calling duties this summer. Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan took over those responsibilities. As the Cowboys offense has sputtered this season beside unbalanced play-calling and lots of short plats, there was some clamoring for Garrett to take them back.
He won’t but he has been popping in on the offense’s practices a little bit more.
“I was down there a little bit more the last couple of days,” Garrett said, via ESPN Dallas. “I typically move all over the practice field and just dive in and coach, help out, do what I can do to make our team better.”
The embarrassing Saints loss might have been a wake up call to the Cowboys.
“I thought the practice on Wednesday was really, really good,” Garrett said. “Guys came out and were focused, practiced hard, practiced fast. There was some crispness to it, and that’s the way you want to practice. That’s the way you get better.”
This week they take on the New York Giants, and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul promised that it would be a fight and that there “will be blood.”
