Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was asked yesterday if he has a desperate football team. He said no.
He was asked Thursday what’s so wrong with a team being desperate.
“I just don’t like the word at all,” Garrett said. “I mean, we’re desperate? That means you start doing some things that are out of character and random, there’s no real method to your madness. Urgency is a much better word. Focus is a much better word. We have a plan. We understand what we need to do. We understand the steps that we need to take to win. We know we need to stay in the short term and focus on today and focus on this week.
“I just like that mentality much better.”
