Really move to Erhardt-Perkins? Randle says play calls are long

12

Birddog26 Tweeted a while back that Cowboys are "moving to an Erhardt-Perkins style of offense" with Garrett fingerprints, which means faster, more concise concept-based play calling nomenclature. I put up a fanpost about it at the time, which caught Rabblerousr's attention, and he recently penned a front-page article looking at this new system. However, as I commended in that post, since that time I have yet to hear this confirmed from any other source, and my Tweets to other Cowboys insiders on the subject have not yielded any confirmation. Then last week in the "On Air with Dallas Cowboys Star Magazine" podcast, Josh Ellis and Jeff Sullivan interviewed Joseph Randle, and he made a comment about how long the play calls take in the huddle, and how many words are required to make the calls, and how he has to listen for his part. To me, this sure doesn't sound like the streamlined Erhardt-Perkins terminology being implemented, and I am wondering if this really is happening. So as much as I respect Birddog, I wanted to bring that to folks' attention and maybe tap the breaks on this a bit, at least until we get some kind of confirmation from another source.
