I'm only going to watch to see if any of the players nodded off.
I'm just about to watch it but it's probably a repeat of what he told them last year and the year before.
Was interesting in terms of what type of info and rules he gives out to them. I liked the reference to the old Mac commercial. You have to be crazy to think this team is a contender.
Got keyboard and fingers? There appears to be no other prerequisite. Sometimes its OK to just keep it moving if you don't like something.
absolutely yawner that opening speech was...
He does that thing where he repeats the ending of his sentence...repeats the ending.
Started REAL slow lol...got better after the 5 minute mark. Better than I expected.
Good lord, how was that boring? That was awesome stuff. Some people will complain just to complain. And I'm not a big Garrett fan.
Well, I thought it was a typical opening up speech to start training camp. I just hope the players were listening to what is expected of them.
Great stuff imo, definitely worth watching. Wish they would bring Irvin in to talk and display passion.
cowboy fans will find a way to criticize any and everything about the organization
Not a big Garrett fan but I actually liked the speech.
Only made it through 16 minutes before becoming thoroughly bored. I'm just glad I don't have to sit and listen to him everyday. At least while I was listening he didn't say "The Dallas Football Cowboys" or I would have immediately clicked it off. Garrett is nothing but TALK we'll see this season if the players are finally buying into his repetitive speeches. From what I've seen on the field the past 2 seasons motivational speaking isn't Garrett's strong point. I'm sure he didn't say anything in that address that the players haven't already heard from him many times over.
Good thing you stopped listening then.
I am not a Garrett supporter nor a hater. I am glad he has less impact on the offense(or so we believe) and I think we will/should see a different coach this year.
There is one positive thing about this man that I like.......he has passion for the Dallas Cowboys and what the STAR represents. I have no doubt that he wants this team to remain America's team and will go to great lengths to maintain that.
His speech only proved my opinion about his passion. Yes, he is boring to the media and fans, but I don't know what he is like behind closed doors. This is the year. If we miss the playoffs again, he is gone IMO even if the team is gelling better. Fancy words and stern demeanor will not be enough to save his job at another .500 record(no matter what JJ says now).
Good speech. I've sat through hundreds of corporate speeches, and Garrett is better than most. I hope the newbies understand he is serious and there aren't going to be any more waivers like they gave Martlellus Bennett. If they want some slack, they better have the talent and work ethic of a Dez Bryant, or they're going to be sitting on the couch at home watching the games on television.
He actually does say dallas football cowboys around the 12 min mark.
I'm not a "garrett fan" but I actually liked it. For those who didn't I really don't know what y'all expected from it. At the end of the day though really doesn't matter if fans like or dislike it. All that matters is if the team buys into it.
Had a feeling it was coming that and "
I was starting to nod off at around the 7 minute mark glad I didn't catch it. By the way did he use the term "ball plays?" That's another one he likes to repeat to make himself sound even more annoying. If a team is winning even listening to Belichick is tolerable but when they're not everything a coach says becomes TALK. Garrett wants to look and sound like a HC but he sounds more like a politician.
It's easier for fans and players to buy into a coach when they've done something in the league that automatically gains them some respect. So far Garrett has done nothing to get his players to buy into him with all the heat he's taken for mismanaging games and his play calling. The players are going to have to buy into his speeches this season and perform at a high level on the field or they'll be listening to another coach address them next July.
That's an easy one. They expected to not like it, no matter what was said.
