Jason Garrett era begins for 1-7 Dallas Cowboys
Garrett wore a gray shirt, royal blue sweat pants and his usual, sweat-stained Cowboys hat commemorating the 50th anniversary of the franchise’s founding in 1960. He had cards tucked into his front and back waistband, likely trying to keep track of more scripts and schedules than ever before.
His greetings for the defensive players were important. Although he’s been offensive coordinator for 3 1/2 years, he’d never had more than a few words in passing with some of them. They’d never seen him in charge, either.
“He was active with everybody,” Jenkins said. “He was showing leadership he was supposed to bring to this team. I think everybody liked it.”
Garrett knew everyone was watching everything he did Wednesday and was conscious of trying to set the right tone. If it was businesslike, then so be it.
At 44, he is a head coach for the first time, but he’s only guaranteed eight games to show Jones he deserves the job beyond this season. And he must do it with a club that’s lost seven of eight and has a 38-year-old, fill-in quarterback.
“We have to learn from the things that didn’t go well, have to build on the things that did go well and go forward,” Garrett said. “The challenges are ahead. So we needed to have a great day at practice and meetings today, have a great one tomorrow and get ready for the Giants on Sunday.”
