The Cowboys are minus-7 in turnover ratio, ranking next-to-last among NFL teams in that area, and rank 30th among the league’s 32 teams in rushing. There have been too many penalties (33). And that has been frustrating to tight end Jason Witten, who has contributed to the inconsistencies with five dropped passes this season.
“Yeah. I think that’s the case. Ultimately, I think we’ve got the right guys to get it done at a high level, to compete for a championship in all phases,” Witten said. “Speaking specifically for the offense, it comes down to a couple of plays. A couple of plays change the game. Turnovers, it’s hard to overcome that. But we’re not going to quit … We’ll get it turned around.”
Witten said Garrett’s approach is the right one, despite another slow start in 2012.
“The wins haven’t shown it, but Jason’s a great coach,” Witten said. “I can’t speak more highly about any coach I’ve had. He does a tremendous job of laying it out there and giving you the game plan to go succeed. He understands adjustments and all that goes into it. He’s done a phenomenal job. We’ve just got to play better.”
