Despite a rash of conservative play calls during crunch time of Sunday’s 19-14 victory over Carolina, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said today he has not lost trust in his team’s error-prone offense or in quarterback Tony Romo. Not even after calling a trap play on third-and-9 to set up the go-ahead, 28-yard field goal with 3:25 remaining instead of something more adventurous. Dallas trailed, 14-13, at the time.
“I have a tremendous amount of trust in our offense,” Garrett said during today’s news conference. “Anybody who has followed our football team understands that. My confidence in Tony Romo is high. It’s always been very high. He does a lot of things for our football team.”
