Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said demeanor is part of the reason behind Doug Free’s struggles at right tackle. He has to have a little more “bite” to his game.
“Oftentimes up there, it can be a dogfight,” Garrett said. “So you’ve got to play with that demeanor where you’re going to bite the guy a little bit and be firm and not let him push you back into the quarterback. At times, Doug did a good job of that. At other times, he didn’t.”
Garrett has talked before about how Free has to be firmer.
“It’s a technical thing. It’s a demeanor thing,” Garrett said. “He just has to keep working on it and doing a better job, and that’s really across the board up front, and that’s really throughout our football team.”
