Cowboys 'mindful' of Tashard Choice's knowledge of calls
They definitely don’t want to hear Choice boasting on the local radio airwaves next week about how he relayed all the Cowboys’ line-of-scrimmage calls to the Washington defense. A similar scenario unfolded in Philadelphia this week, as injured quarterback Kevin Kolb deemed it “funny” how he was able to help the Cardinals’ defense shut down the team that traded him.
The Cowboys are well aware that Choice, who was claimed by the Redskins after the Cowboys cut him last month, has intimate knowledge of Dallas’ offense. They are confident that can keep Choice from using that knowledge against them.
“You always have to be mindful of that whenever you have a player going from your team to the other team,” head coach Jason Garrett said. “Tashard is certainly a smart guy, and we like to think that we do a good job disguising some of our calls.
“I don’t think we undo our offense just because of that transaction. I think we have to deal with it. It certainly has to be something we look at throughout the ballgame.”
