Much like owner and general manager Jerry Jones, Cowboys’ head coach Jason Garrett responded to his team’s season-ending loss to the New York Giants by simply saying that the team had to get better, beginning from the top of the coaching staff right down through the roster.
Garrett didn’t say whether the wholesale need for improvement includes his boss Jones, but we’ll say that for him, right now.
"We just have to get better and that's what we told our team," Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. "It starts with me as the head coach, our coaching staff needs to get better, our players need to get better. And that starts when we come back and reconvene in March.
“There were a lot of good things that happened to our football team this year. There were a lot of disappointing things as well. We didn't play consistently good enough football throughout the year and we'll go back and evaluate all that stuff and get better as an organization."
Garrett, who Jones said is safe in his job after the loss, finished his first full season as head coach with an 8-8 record.
