  • Anyway, what JJ has pretty much been eluding to is...he essentially wants Felix to start and Marion to finish. Without saying as much, exactly. And I actually agree here.

    Thanks BoneKrusher^

      If you want to play team football, everybody has to buy in, even if what the coach is selling is wrong. The individualism in the cowboy organization is a big part of the December slumps.
      If you were to ask any single player about it, I doubt they'd feel that any respect was loss. Everyone knows Jerry's style. Any other GM, and maybe their players have those feelings... but in Dallas... this is just how things are done.

      The real problem is that we don't play a complete game. Some days our offense is the problem and the defense does good... the next week, the opposite happens. I thought we finally got it together against Oakland, but we reverted back against a better opponent. With a tough schedule ahead, we have to be good in all 3 phases of the game.

        Well I know the old man, Jim Garrett more. But I met all 4 of the brothers this summer. I managed to somehow, through the father, and a common coach, my name on the list for coaches for his charity all day coaching event. So I guess I will see next year. Not sure about the old man. I have his number and all, but I don't really bother him. He is always busy running camps with local HS studs in their side yard. Guys like Brown, Knowshon and them all used to come get coached up by Jim Garrett.

        But maybe next late spring/early summer, if I get an invite back again, which I hope, I will be able to see them all there.

        As for Coach Campo, that's rare, but we share a common friend. My dad's really good friend was Camp's roommate in college. So if I usually want an autograph or have a question. I ask Mr. R. and he calls up Camp.

        But if I see them or I am able I can float some questions out there. Some of the questions I know the answer to and so if I ask i don't want them to look at me like I am some fool, especially if I want him to take me on his staff, if he ever gets a Hcing job. But in general, I can try to word these questions so that he doesn't look at me like I am a fool for asking some of these questions.

          Jim Garrett ever talk to you about Todd Lowber? He loved that kid. haha. He was terrible, though.

          Anyway, that's awesome. I hope you get your big beak into the profession...then I can use you as an inside source. lol. jk. Or maybe I can be a special internet advisor. yeah? :D

          But really, it's pretty sweet that you've gotten to work with all those guys. Had to be a great experience. Who did you say was at that one camp? Didnt you say it was JG, Miles, and who else?

          • Marty B is out this week. I wonder what is more likely...seeing more Crayton and potentially Hurd this week or John Phillips basically just stepping in completely for Bennett. Garrett obviously likes Phillips...he's been playing him a lot this season. But we have been lining Bennett up in the slot in the majority of our shotgun formations the last few weeks. It will be interesting to see which way we go.

            Thanks BoneKrusher^

                It may end up being a group deal coming from the top but, if you think it would be Decamillis' idea, now that's just silly.

                Silly?

                I think you sell Joe D short. He has respect in this league and has skins on the wall. JG is a good guy and he's not going to go over to special teams just to mark his territory. Joe D probably doesn't need JG to "design" trick plays for him. I"m sure he's seen it all. I don't see it as an issue of Garrett having 'power' as it is that he respects his other coaches and isn't going to needlessly over step his bounds. What's he got to gain?

                  Yeah my bad, I forgot to mention him. It's def. possible, he gets in there every once in a while. Hurd has been used exclusively as a blocker for 5 straight weeks now, where as they've had Ogletree run a few routes. I dont know what we'll do exactly. I would love to see some 5 WR sets, we only did it once all year with all 5 wide receivers.

                    No, I was busy getting grilled in the hardest interview of my life. And then he talked Giants football with me, and players like Eli,and who he liked Bradshaw a lot. Then talked about TO and Johnson and who as a backup he was somehow gun shy. The guy is a huge legend though. He played, coached, and was in personnel in this league. Triple threat i guess it's called. He is like 80 i guess so he knows everyone in the league. It's fun to hear him talk about football. I will never ever forget that interview though. I was literally sweating.

                    Thanks man. Yeah well it's between Garrett and the Falcons. Unless i can get on with another team after this season. So these guys will keep their ears open. But just waiting now until the offseason and then going to call Coach Smith, in Atlanta up, and see if I can come on and watch their draft process. That interests me a lot. But we will see, I am trying like hell to get a foot in the door.

                    Yeah, Old Browns Coach Sam Ritglianio, Miles, Jason, old Dallas TE ( forgot his name), Florida state coaching staff, Former Eagles WR Hess ( forgot his name), 4 Garrett brothers, and I think some other Dallas coaches, and some HS coaches that knew them. Also, some guys from college who played with Jason and remained friends. The Princeton coaching staff was there helping too, from the HC on down. So that was cool too, because I had emailed him about a GA spot a long while ago, so he remembered me.

                    So we all coached inner city kids all day long, and then each team played each other. Coach Garrett made a playbook based on the system you guys run in Dallas, and we learned it, taught it to the kids, and then competed. It was a great time, but it was pouring.

                    I ended up with your TE coach John Garrett, and the former Eagles WR, Hess. JG was the HC/OC and I was the TE coach, which I coached before. So I guess that was his way of seeing how I interacted with these guys and he can see how I do upclose. I am guessing that was the Jim Garretts idea.

                    But it was fun got to chill with miles afterwards and talked to Witten for a while who is really quiet. He had a tough upbringing but very humble and cool guy. Doesn't look that big or jacked though as I thought. I thought Tony G, when I met him looked incredibly jacked. That guy is all muscle, but another very, very cool guy. Last thing I told Miles when I saw him was make NJ proud.

                      I wasnt making it out to be some kind of power trip. Garrett was the one drawing up potential trick plays for Crayton when he was actually the favorite to hold so, if Romo was out there...it would more than likely be the same. He may even have a few things drawn up already from back then.

                      And the idea of a trick play would come from Wade or Garrett, not Decamillis. Not a knock on Decamillis but, I'm sure that's where it would originate from, and Garrett who isnt just exclusively an O Coord. would certainly work closely with the ST unit and his QB, to draw up a play and make sure they execute.

                        I'm actually a big John Garrett fan, believe it or not. He's got a good head on his shoulders.

                        Was the old Cowboys TE David Lafleur? That'd be awesome. haha.

                          No, he looked like late 30s maybe early 40s.. I guess count back.. Witten, before him, before him.. I can't remember his name.

                          Hehe usually people type SMS, but now I guess call me Boss or BMB. Before BBD used to call me Shock. No need to type it all out.

                          Yeah John is really a chill guy. Smart coach, and I never heard him curse. He always used to say, For god sake, lol. It was pretty funny. One of the other coaches who is the common friend said that he and Jim are very similar. But John is a cool guy and very nice. I asked him about Bennett and his progress and he said he was happy and coming along.

                          That family is tight with JJ, which is why I feel that he would be a good fit for HC. Also, JJ can take the credit, it won't bother JG because of his personality. He just needs a good DC and OC under him. Going from coordinator to HC is a totally different game.


                          Not sure about Jason and what he does with special teams. He may have a hand in it, but you should know special teams coaches unless they ask control that part of practice and run everything. I haven't seen at any level where an OC would stick his neck into that phase without the special teams coach asking. Normally the special teams coach gets help from coaches during practice to get lines up, but the special teams coach is in charge and that's his show.

                          That's called the specialists part of practice, usually the first thing or period before practice starts.

                          • old Dallas TE ( forgot his name)
                            Just guessing here, Billy Joe Dupree?? Mike Freaking Ditka!?? Both wore 89, both TEs in Dallas. I may be accurate if the elder Garrett is like 80 yrs. old. He was the head scout at Dallas forever ( Jason literally grew up in the shadow of the Cowboys), he probably dates back to the 60s when Dallas was the 1st team to implement those new-fangled computer thingies to evaluate talent before the draft.

                            • Our Mystery Man will finally play...

                              Rookie linebacker Jason Williams, the Cowboys' first pick in the April draft, has not played since Oct. 11 at Kansas City but will be back on the field Sunday against San Diego because of the injury to tight end Martellus Bennett.

                              With John Phillips expected to see more tight end work, the Cowboys need to fill in some special teams' holes and Williams will get the call.

                              "Hopefully I can lock down a job on special teams and get that going," said Williams, who did not make a tackle in either of his two appearances this year.

                              Williams admits the transition to inside linebacker has been difficult, as has been watching.

                              "The first few weeks were really hard because at that point I didn't understand why," Williams said. "But as it's gone on I've just taken it as a learning experience."

                              Coach Wade Phillips said Williams has made strides even if it hasn't been in games.

                              "I think he's learning to be a pro and that takes a little while for some guys," Phillips said. "He's learned to work in practice and make plays in practice that can carry over to him being able to play. He's played a lot of scout team work but he's working with our defense. We work him in our defensive calls. I see him getting better and better. I like his attitude."
