Jerry Jones to keep Cowboys' offensive play-caller

Jerry Jones has no plans to make big changes during the Dallas Cowboys' bye week.

Battista: 'Boys will be 'Boys


Same old story in Dallas: offseason hype followed by in-season disappointment. Judy Battista identifies the constant issue. **READ**

When asked Monday during his weekly KRLD-FM radio spot if there's a chance the Cowboys will change offensive play-callers, the owner said "no," per Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will continue with those duties.

He did, however, reveal that during the bye week, his offensive coaching staff will focus on upping Dez Bryant's production.

"We need to get him the ball more," Jones said.

The comment is clearly an understatement, as Bryant was targeted just twice in Sunday night's embarrassing 49-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

When it came to the pathetic defense, Jones said the Cowboys need to play more man-to-man coverage and less zone.

"It's time to look at what the guys do the best," Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Play a little more man, a little less zone. You need to man up more in the secondary rather than rely on zone. If you can't get pressure and you are relying on zone, that's how we end up on the position we were in the other night."

Unfortunately, the Cowboys' injuries continue to mount and they aren't successful deploying either strategy.
