The Dallas Cowboys are off to almost an ideal start, they’re 2-1 and beat the New York Giants at home finally. They lost a close game to the Kansas City Chiefs and they could easily be off to a 3-0 start. Part of the success could be the change in coaching. Jason Garrett was stripped of his play-calling duties, offensive coordinator Bill Callahan took over.
“It’s exceeded anything that I might have expected, my expectations, both from the standpoint of the enthusiasm, the overall aura around the team as well as the technical aspects of it,” Jones said Friday on KRLD-FM, via ESPN Dallas.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones says Garrett deserves the credit.
“The guy that I want to point out that is the one that is the leader and is basically really a motivator that might surprise a lot of people is Jason Garrett,” Jones said. “Jason really has a way of communicating. He has a way of setting expectations. He certainly can use the fact that he’s new, it’s fresh for him as far as his career is concerned. He’s not that far removed from having played. All of that is a plus for us.
“This team is getting a big gain from Jason Garrett’s motivational ability.”
