To understand things, first remember that the game is only three and a half hours of the weekly workload.
The coaching search is starting to get serious for the Dallas Cowboys, with recent word that the team is now looking outside the organization, at least for a new offensive line coach. This indicates that a perceived attempt to stack the staff by offensive coordinator Scott Linehan may have had the brakes applied from on high.
Best thing I am learning about #Cowboys rebuilding of their staff: ‘somebody’ told ‘somebody’ to ‘SLOW DOWN.’ @1053thefan

The person or person stepping on the brakes almost certainly was Jerry Jones and/or Jason Garrett. However it happened, it is certainly a needed move to ensure that the staff, particularly on offense, is not just a bunch of loyalists, but people who will stand up for what they think needs to be done.
