Garrett describes 'the right kind of guy' and says ego is part of it

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he wants players with ego. But the right kind of ego.

“Ego in the context of what we’re trying to accomplish as a team,” he said Saturday at a high school football camp at Cowboys Stadium. He was asked by reporters to describe the kind of player he is looking for in free agency.

“We’re looking for the right kind of guy,” he said. “The right kind of guy, to us, is someone who loves to play football, who is very passionate about it, willing to work hard at it, willing to be part of a team, willing to be part of something that is maybe greater than himself.

“We want a guy who has an ego. Egos are important. But ego in the context of what we’re trying to accomplish as a team. Guys who are willing to work, are great teammates – there’s always going to be a place for those guys.”

A little body often harbors a great soul.

Garrett didn't say anything of significant. He wants players who will not question why he has this team geared strictly for Romo. As Jerry said not too long ago..'We want to make this team..Romo friendly.'...lol. And we haven't won squat since that idiotic comment from Jerry. And we wonder why we can't win.

How about Jason Garrett finds some players that are TOUGH?!?!? Especially on defense. When is the last time the Cowboys had a defense that was tough and intimidated people? Demarcus Ware, while very good, does not intimidate people. Besides that, he disappears in big games. Some of the lack of toughness I blame on the GM. JJ would rather have flashy players instead of tough, hard-nosed football players. Up and down the roster, a general theme is flashy players who are also SOFT,injury prone and have no guts. Dallas needs more guys like Jason Witten and Sean Lee. Romo showed some toughness in the San Fran game, but the jury's still out. Toughness also includes going on the road in Dec/Jan and getting a win in bad weather in GB, NY, Phil etc.

I wish Garrett had the kind of ego he seeks from players. He is very stubborn, and tries to fit players into his system, instead of coming up with a game plan which fits his players.

For a lineman that means he is determined to beat the guy across the line from him. Larry Allen's ego required that he DESTROY the guy across from him. Now, that's the ego Jason is talking about.

Love garrett's answer.. Baby Jesus thank you!!!
