Jason Garrett has a reputation for sounding deliberate and robotic in his press conferences.
Not because he’s holding back information. Rather, because he’s thinking about how to provide the information and how it affects the Cowboys.
That’s what he told Dale Hansen in an interview on WFAA Channel 8 broadcast Thursday night when Hansen asked him, “What happened to the real Jason Garrett?”
Garrett said, “When you’re in the position that I’m in, the most important responsibility I have is to the Dallas Cowboys. And oftentimes, you get in situations like this, or in the daily press conferences that I do, whenever I’m asked a question about anything, what goes through my mind first and foremost: how can my answer impact the Dallas Cowboys? And that’s the thing that is most important to me.
“So oftentimes, there’s questions I won’t answer or I avoid answering if I feel there’s a competitive disadvantage to answering that question in a certain way. My obligation is to our team, to our coaches, to our players and everyone in our organization first and foremost.”
Hansen promised more of the interview on Sunday night.
CBS 11's Babe Laufenberg also broadcast an interview with Garrett on Thursday night, with more of the interview on Sunday night.
