The Cowboys had a sloppy walk-through Saturday, a week into their training camp. They had three presnap penalties, dropped balls and mental mistakes.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was less than pleased.
"It wasn’t as good as it needs to be," Garrett said. "The standard for a walk-through is high. Just because you are walking through, and it’s not a full-speed practice, you have to be into it mentally. You have to be sharp. We understand as coaches we are putting a lot of stuff in every day. We anticipate mistakes. That’s why we go through a walk-through. You clean things up. I just think overall the concentration was only OK. It’s got to be better."
The Cowboys could have tired legs a week into camp, though they did have Thursday completely off and only special teams went through the walk-through portion of practice Friday.
"I don’t really care about what the explanation is or what the excuse is," Garrett said. "We've just got to do it better."
The Cowboys will have a full practice at 5:15 PT.
