As we learned this week, not even a heartbreaking loss can keep Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones from talking Super Bowl. As he said this week, “Not next year, this year.” Which seems a little crazy, considering we’re less than a week removed from a head-scratching loss to the Baltimore Ravens, and just two weeks removed from the team’s utter dismantling at the hands of the Chicago Bears.
As he probably should, head coach Jason Garrett is avoiding any of this (kind of insane) Super Bowl talk.
"We're not real focused on that right now," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "We're focused on meeting well on Wednesday and preparing for Carolina on Sunday. So that's where our emphasis is as players and coaches."
In response to a question about whether Jones’ comments put an additional level of pressure on his team, Garrett said, “Totally.” Just kidding. He sidestepped the question in classic Jason Garrett style, which is probably good where a lofty prediction-making owner is concerned.
"Again, we're not focused on that," Garrett said. "We think Jerry Jones is an outstanding owner and we appreciate everything he does for our football team, but our focus is on practicing well today."
