Jason Garrett speaks out on addressing Cowboys’ confidence
The Dallas Cowboys, after an incendiary start, are now 6-6. They have lost back-to-back games to the likes of the 10-1 New England Patriots and 9-3 Buffalo Bills. Once a stout Super Bowl contender, America’s Team is reeling at the worst time.
Their much-maligned head coach, Jason Garrett, speaks out on the Cowboys’ team confidence after a disappointing past two weeks.
Said Garrett on Sunday, via Jon Machota of The Athletic:
“The biggest thing we try to do is just focus on what we need to do to get ourselves ready to play the next ballgame. That’s reflected in our preparation, how we meet, how we walk-through and how we practice.”
Essentially, Garrett is forgetful of the past and is moving on to the Cowboys’ next competition, the 6-6, and equally as disappointing, Chicago Bears.
While the Cowboys focus on the preparation for their next game, Garrett is receiving calls for his head. He has failed to beat winning teams in 2019, losing to the Bills, Patriots, 8-3 Minnesota Vikings, 8-3 Green Bay Packers, 10-2 New Orleans Saints and 4-7 New York Jets.
The ice seems to be getting thin for Garrett. Despite the influx of talent in the Cowboys’ locker room, the team has failed to pick up wins they should have won. In turn, the worldwide fanbase has turned on him. The owner, Jerry Jones, seems to be following, despite his adamancy for keeping him around through the rest of 2019.
The Cowboys remain on top of the NFC East, with the Philadelphia Eagles struggling. However, their goals don’t end in staying relevant in a weak division.
