Callahan article

+

Here's an article on our new OC. nothing profound in here but some good parts. ============== Callahan won't take over play-calling duties from Garrett, but he will likely have a lot more influence in the game-planning process than Houck. Callahan has been a head coach with the Oakland Raiders and Nebraska Cornhuskers, so he knows a thing or two about game management. He didn't call plays with the Jets, but sources have told me that he had a tremendous amount of influence on the game plan. And former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer wasn't afraid to bounce ideas off him during games. "He will do well with Garrett," said one Jets assistant coach. "He is not a grab bag play caller. There is a reason for everything he does. He's just a very calculated and cerebral guy." Having called plays in the past, Callahan has a great feel for how to change up protection schemes to go with whatever Garrett wants to do. Several coaches called me following the Cowboys' 44-6 loss to the Eagles at the end of the '08 season and said that quarterback Tony Romo never had a chance in that game because the protection schemes were never adjusted. Callahan oversaw some of the league's top rushing attacks with the Raiders and Jets, so he should be able to do some new things with DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones. I talked to two longtime offensive line coaches in the league who couldn't stop praising Callahan's ability to influence the running game.
