Cowboys | Better on third downs

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 06:58:01 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys have seen an improvement on third down, mostly because they are in more manageable situations. "We thought in the last two games we certainly got better and they were more manageable," offensive coordinator Bill Callahan said. "And I had said a couple of weeks ago that was the key. If we could stay in those manageable situations that helps us execute, convert drives gives us another chance, another opportunity to extend the plays."

Cowboys | No changes to coaching staff

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 09:17:53 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he won't shake up the coaching staff during the team's bye week in Week 11. Jones said defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin won't be fired and head coach Jason Garrett won't take the play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Bill Callahan. The Cowboys were held to 193 yards of total offense in their Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The team's defense ranks last in the league with an average of 439.8 yards per game. Jones believes the team needs to play more man coverage on defense. "You need to probably man up more in the secondary than we've been doing, rather than relying on zone," Jones said. "Because if we can't get pressure and we're relying on the traditional zone as you might mentally picture it, then that's a recipe for what happened to us the other night."

Cowboys | Jason Garrett fine with give up play calling

Sat, 20 Jul 2013 16:21:49 -0700

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said he is fine with giving up the play calling to offensive coordinator Bill Callahan because he has been looking to get more involved with the defense and special teams. "I made a very conscious effort over the last couple of years to coach the whole football team. I spent time with the defensive guys on their side of the practice field. I spent a lot of time in the defensive meetings and the special teams meetings. I've always done that. But just the mechanics of someone else calling the actual plays allows me to maybe take a different view of it. So you'll see that on the practice field. That's how we operated all throughout the offseason in our OTAs and our mini-camp, and it worked very smoothly for us, and we'll continue to do that," Garrett said.

Cowboys | Jason Garrett OK with not calling plays

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 05:49:40 -0800

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said it has "never been hell or high water" as far as calling the offensive plays; however, he wanted to keep his thumbprint on the team's offense, and that's why it was important for him to have offensive coordinator Bill Callahan take over as the playcaller. Although Callahan has not been officially announced as the playcaller, he is expected to assume that role. If the Cowboys had brought in someone from outside the organization to call the plays, Garrett likely would have had to surrender a lot of control over the team's philosophy.

Raiders | Tim Brown clarifies Bill Callahan comments

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 09:03:13 -0800

Former NFL WR Tim Brown denied ever saying Bill Callahan sabotaged Super Bowl XXXVII as head coach of the Oakland Raiders during a radio interview Wednesday, Jan. 23. "I have never said that he sabotaged the game," Brown said. "All I'm saying is, all I was saying after the game was, you know, the question was asked about this situation, but no one ever said ... that's something that could never be proven. We can't go inside the mind of Bill Callahan and say, 'Oh, yeah, we knew exactly what he was thinking, what he was trying to do.' All I'm saying is, the question was asked. But of course the media hears 'sabotage' and 'Bill Callahan' and 'throwing the football game,' now they're saying 'Throwing the football game' and that terminology was never used. But that wasn't the intent."

Raiders | Bill Callahan refutes Tim Brown's comments

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 03:43:38 -0800

Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Bill Callahan released a statement strongly refuting former Oakland Raiders WR Tim Brown's suggestion that Callahan "sabotaged" the team's chances of winning Super Bowl XXXVII. Callahan coached the Raiders for two seasons. "There are many people who are disappointed by the outcome of Super Bowl XXVII, but none more than me," Callahan said. "While I fully understand a competitive professional football player's disappointment when a game's outcome doesn't go his team's way, I am shocked, saddened and outraged by Tim Brown's allegations ... I think it would be in the best interests of all including the game America loves that these allegations be retracted immediately."

Cowboys | No final decisions on play calling

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 17:04:05 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team hasn't made any final decisions on who will calls the offensive plays next season, but that head coach Jason Garrett is fine with the decision to move away from him as the play-caller. Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan has more experience calling plays under former Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden in a West Coast offense. "I think you get that when you create more input, influence, whatever you want to call it ..." Jones said. "If Bill Callahan has more influence - let's make that assumption. If he does, then you will see more of some of the things that work for him in his coaching career."

New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, from all indications, needs a Hail Mary to save his job. The heir apparent is offensive line coach Bill Callahan; however, Callahan's contract is up after the season, according to a league source, and he could be an attractive coordinator candidate on the open market, especially if Jon Gruden decides to return to the sideline. There also seems to be a disconnect between Schottenheimer and head coach Rex Ryan.

Raiders | Callahan Not Worried About Job Status

Mon, 15 Dec 2003 19:59:21 -0800

ESPN.com reports Oakland Raiders head coach Bill Callahan is unfazed about his job status despite the Raiders' 4-10 record. "I just try to coach to the best of my ability and hope they keep me one more week, you know?" Callahan said following Oakland's 20-12 victory over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15. LB Napoleon Harris believes Callahan, who is in the final year of a two-year contract, deserves to return as head coach in 2004. "In my opinion, I think he does," Harris said. "You have a guy who went to the Super Bowl as a rookie coach and then you have a bad season. Just to cut a guy's head off like that, it's kind of like saying, 'Wow.' But this is the NFL and you never know how things will turn out."

Oakland Raiders C Barret Robbins (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 4, and has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's, Dec. 7, game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a nagging knee problem. Head coach Bill Callahan said the injury was an arthritic condition that his center has been successfully dealing with throughout the season. If Robbins is unable to go, C Adam Treu will get his first start at center since last year's Super Bowl. Treu will also serve as the long snapper.
