Did Jason Witten (a supposed team leader) just admit that he doesn't think the Cowboys can compete in December. Wow. How many times have the Cowboys taken a good record into December and flopped? No wonder this team craters every December. Those words portray a total lack of confidence, imo. That is pretty weak minded, imo.
Hey, Jason. How many times did the Giants lose (2011) before Eli came in for his yearly autograph session in the visitor's locker room (at Jerry World)? Other teams get hot in December and win or go to the Super Bowl. (Giants 2x, Packers, Cardinals). Those were a pair of 9-7 teams and a 10-6 team. The Giants walked right over that shiny blue star, twice.
[View Full Quote]Jason Garrett was Jerry Jones' hand picked super puppet in waiting (2007), and it was supposed to be all Wade Phillips' fault. The culture of under-achieving and mediocrity will not leave until the Cowboys get a legit GM/front office and a legit head coach.
The culture in Dallas has not changed one bit. Garrett was too inexperienced to ever have this job in the first place, and I think that showed last year, too. Jeff Fisher and Jon Gruden are probably laughing right now.
I don't think you understood him correctly. From what i got out of his statments, he was simply saying you can't expect to lollygag through the season and then expect to turn it on in December and challange for a postseason spot. It doesn't work like that, and he's right. Its only week 4, but a light has to go on for this team right now.. or we're looking at another long offseason. Seems drastic, but its the truth.
