Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he won't shake up the coaching staff during the team's bye week in Week 11.

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."

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.

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."

"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."

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."

"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."

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.
