    ARLINGTON, Texas - Football players often take the field and say they’re “going to war.”

    The Cowboys got a taste of what that actually means when they visited the Navy SEALs at their base in Coronado, Calif., before departing home Wednesday from San Diego.

    While coach Jason Garrett said the work put into football is incomparable to the sacrifices made by the Navy SEALs, the Cowboys could still learn about discipline, preparation and the need for training.

    As Garrett put it, the Navy SEALs are “the best of the best,” and he wanted his team to get a glimpse at “the kind of warriors those guys are.”

    “Your eyes are wide open,” running back DeMarco Murray[​IMG] said of the field trip. “I asked those guys a lot about mental toughness despite different types of distractions, how do they go through and differentiate between going home with their family and going to work. I learned so much stuff, it’s unbelievable. I have so much respect for those guys, and that was an opportunity that I’ll never be experience (again) in my life. … It’s something I’ll never forget.
