He has the ability to dominate on any given play, and even across entire games if things fall right for him. Yet, he has never been able to put together a string of impressive performances without poor games in between. Simply put, sooner or later the bad games come out. Dallas might think they can coach out the negatives from his game, get him into a good position early on a more consistent basis, and erase the negatives that poor positioning leads to, and if they can, they may well produce a truly impressive player.

New offensive line coach Bill Callahan has a sterling reputation for his work in the trenches, and if he can get Livings to play to his potential every week, he will have more than earned his money.
