CALLAHAN'S reputation for turning out powerhouse offensive lines should be a boon to the entire Cowboys attack. The most immediate benefactors will be running back DeMarco Murray, the team's leading rusher last season, and quarterback Tony Romo, who will have more time to throw. It doesn't matter if it's Callahan or coach Jason Garrett calling the plays, the offense should show more balance, which could mean slightly more carries for Murray and fewer attempts for Romo. Dallas threw the ball 570 times last year and ran it just 408.
CHUCK PAGANO COACH
BRUCE ARIANS COORDINATOR
BOTH PAGANO and Arians (left) are aggressive coaches who also understand the importance of clock management. While Arians (most recently the Steelers' coordinator) likes a balanced offense, he appreciates how a good short passing game can eat up time. In 2011, Pittsburgh had 539 passing attempts to 434 rushing attempts and still averaged 32:33 time of possession (second best in the league). Those numbers bode well for Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck.
