Coach Jason Garrett wants no part of the Jerry Jones’ talk that the Cowboys are can contend for the Super Bowl title this season.
His focus is getting his 2-3 team ready for Sunday’s game against Carolina and breaking a two-game losing streak, not worrying about whether they are a championship team as his owner said Tuesday on his radio show.
“We are not focused on that,” Garrett said at his Wednesday press conference. “We are focused on meeting Wednesday and preparing for Carolina on Sunday. That is where our emphasis is a players and coaches.”
Garrett also wanted no part of a follow question about
whether Jones’ comments put too much pressure on the team.
“We are not focused on that,” Garrett said. “We think Jerry Jones is an outstanding owner. We appreciate everything he does for our football team. But our focus is practicing well today.”
