07:57 PM ET 01.22 | A bizarre offseason in Dallas with uncertainty looming for all staff members has just taken its latest turn. The latest member of the Cowboys organization to lose a lot of power is head coach Jason Garrett. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has stripped Garrett of his play-calling duties. Offensive coordinator/line coach Bill Callahan will now take over the play-calling duties. Last week, Garrett's brother, John, left the Cowboys coaching staff to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It seems increasingly likely that Jones has a plan up his sleeve and that he is setting up for a move that would send Garrett out the door in Dallas with a replacement ready to be named. There is no certainty to those rumors, but the chance that Garrett will be the Cowboys head coach in 2013 appears to be decreasing.

Just don't change the game plan 36 hours before kickoff Bill.

What ever the changes that Jerry produces, be assured that they will lead to more high priced mediocrity from the Cowboys organization.

Jason Garrett is making a lot of money, he can't quit, if he does he can't coach unless The Cowboys release him! He's being scourged at the Pillar for making some bad decisions!

My sympathies, Cowboys fans.

Why don't that old fart jones just fire his head coach so the old fart jones can coach the team.

Redskin fans who have Dan Snyder to make 'em sick can at least look to Dallas and say "Well, it could be worse".

B.C. is a piece of dog dookey in my opinion. I would'nt let him call in the lunch order. Just my opinion.

Jerry is probably egotistical and narcissistic enough to name himself head coach and play caller for the 2013-2014 year.

Next, Jerry needs to fire his GM.

Add to this wackiness... Jay Ratliff getting arrested on a DWI charge after ramming his truck into an 18 wheeler last night...

Its gonna be a long offseason.

It's bout time now just get rid of him. Got rid of Ryan, one Garrett, one to go.

Remember all the bizarre stuff Al Davis pulled to try and get Lane Kiffen to quit so that he wouldn't have to pay him? Maybe the ole Cryptkeeper has taken over the mind and body of JJ.

Garrett will not be able to function under this pressure. Garrett knows Jerry wants him to resign.

Sure, this is the same thing Dan Snyder did to Jim Zorn. John Riggins called it castrating him one testis at a time. Riggo said "I used to that to pigs out in Kansas but I never thought of it
that way." Classic, watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8oKum9Gva4

I'm sure Jerry and Dan compare notes all the time.

OK, goofy way to do it, but really? Not such a good idea to have the HC call the plays on either side of the ball anyways. He can get his input in their all week, but on game day there is too much going on.
JJ is right on this move, but it is his own mistake he is fixing.

Snyder needs to send Jerry the page where he finally came to his senses and brought in a legit GM.
