Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called Sunday’s win over the Seattle Seahawks Jason Garrett’s “finest hour” as the team’s head coach. Garrett himself isn’t ready to think in those terms.
"We're not going to step back and make any proclamations like that," Garrett said, per Jean-Jacques Taylor of ESPN Dallas. "We're going to get back to doing work. We were here this morning watching tape, so we can learn from it and prepare our presentation for the players."
At 5-1, the Cowboys have won five straight, the first time they’ve ever done that under Garrett. But the Dallas head coach, who is in the final season of his contract, made it clear this week that the team isn’t going to sit around and pat itself on the collective back.
"We're a work in progress and I'll keep saying that cause that's what we are, so I don't really get into any declarations about what this team is or isn't," Garrett said. "Yesterday was a good game for us, we've gotten off to a good start and we've done some good things. But we have to focus on getting better, focus on today, focus on this week's challenge and get ready to be our best."
