    IRVING – Even though the 3-3 Cowboys are only a game out of first place in the NFC East behind the Giants, Jason Garrett says it’s way too early in the season to be discussing the playoff picture and that his focus is entirely on Sunday night’s game against the 2-4 Eagles.

    “It’ll be a great challenge for us,” Garrett said. “They’re an awfully good team playing at their place. They’ve got a lot of playmakers on both sides of the ball. We know the challenges of the Cowboys playing the Eagles. We’ve got to get locked in on that. We’re not real concerned about division races in the seventh game of the season. There’s a lot of football to be played. We’ve got to play our best football and the way we do that is come to work on Wednesday and have a great Wednesday and keep working from there.”

    The mediots strike again ..

    Media headline: "I'm not concerned about division races"

    Actual quote: Garrett says, "We’re not real concerned about division races in the seventh game of the season."

    I'm sure the haters would be all over Garrett about this which is exactly what the mediots want .. their sheep to do the baaaaaaah'ing ..

    Garrett saying that he is not concerned about looking too far ahead when right now he has to worry about the Eagles. The Media putting it in a way to make it sound like either Garrett doesn't care about the division race at all or is not concerned because he thinks that he has the division already won or something.

    Someone who just reads the Misquote will misunderstand and it will either be Dallas fans upset with Garrett or the other teams in the division players and fans will feel disrespected because they will take it as Garrett being Cocky.

    Media picks and chooses the quotes that they think will rile people up the most so that a story can be created, :rolleyes:

    I saw this press conference. The guy asking the question was way out of line and trying to provoke JG by calling him myopic for not looking at the big picture, not sure what his problem with JG

    Remember that the guys who write the articles don't typically write the headlines, and the headline writers aren't actual sports reporters. The article itself is very clear about what he said.

    JG spanked a few of the idiots asking questions yesterday. I was hopeful they would not start spinning his comments. Stupid me for thinking that. The local media just can not let the drama go. If it does not exist then they will create it.

    Typical spin by the media to make things sound one way that aren't really the way that they're trying to make it sound. That's not unusual though. I'm more than used to that by now.
