Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said his team “absolutely” has shown a sense of urgency in practice this week despite former coach Jimmy Johnson’s assertion about a country-club atmosphere that dominates the team’s locker room. Johnson made his comments earlier this week on the Dan Patrick Show.
Dallas (3-5) plays Sunday at Philadelpia (3-5) in a matchup to severely limits the playoff possibilities for the losing team.
“If you watch us practice, guys come to work. I think our team practices well,” Garrett said. “The best teams have that (sense or urgency). We try to create that type of environment for our players because we think it’s important. Whatever we do, we try to make it important. If we didn’t think it was important, we wouldn’t do it. We try to convey that to our players … That’s always been our approach. That’s been no different the last couple of weeks.”
