    Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he stresses to the players to come to him or anyone in the organization if they have anything in their lives they want to talk about or want help with, and that the Cowboys will do anything they can to provide help.

    “Literally, I said I’ll get down on my hands and knees, and I beg you to do this because it’s the most important thing there is,” Garrett said Monday, talking about the effect of the murder-suicide on Saturday involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Javon Belcher and his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins.

    “There’s no issue that you have in your life that we can’t somehow solve in some way and in some way make it better,” Garrett said. “I just say that from the bottom of my heart because you never know what guys are going through, and you just let them know they have a place to turn. It’s a real tragedy there, so you just want to make sure you do everything you can to make sure something like that doesn’t happen here, and you want to make them really aware that we have the resources to help them.”

    Garrett said he spoke to the team about the shootings on Saturday night at the team hotel and that everyone listened and he hoped he got the message across. He said the macho image of a football player shouldn’t prevent him from seeking help.

    Great great thing to do.

    Some of these kids need help ....... look at the progress Dez has made since he asked for help this offseason. (though many here mocked him for it)

    I assume coaches around the NFL have similar messages after the tragedy. That's the great thing about coaches, even ones who turn out to be bad, they genuinely want to do what is right for their players in a crisis and to be there for them.

    I'm willing to bet you'd have a hard time finding more than one or two comments on here mocking Dez for asking for help, much less "many." There may have been some lighthearted or facetious comments, but I doubt they would fall under the category of mockery.
