Cowboys' Jason Witten responds to Will Allen's micromanage comments

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Will Allen, who started the season with the Dallas Cowboys, made some critical comments about his former team. Allen said that the Cowboys have a have a “very micromanaged atmosphere” and lack cohesion.

“Yeah, we can’t do much right around here, I guess,” tight end Jason Witten said. “You’d rather have it that way than country club.”

The country club comments come from former coach Jimmy Johnson and how he described that atmosphere with in the organization. Witten went on to defend his team, coaches and teammates.

“I think it’s a pretty good group, coaches and players. I mean, guys work together and believe in each other, believe in the staff,” Witten said. “There is a respect there. We want to win for them. They want to win for us. It’s coaches and players, and players and players. It’s a great group of guys that go out and work their tail off every day. It’s the kind of locker room I’ve been around. I don’t think there are micromanagers. There is always the pressure to go perform and that’s in 31 other locker rooms as well. It’s part of playing in pro football.”
