Ever since his Dallas Cowboys dropped a crucial home game to the New York Giants two weeks ago, a loss that dropped Dallas to 3-4 on the season and dealt a severe blow to their playoff hopes, head coach Jason Garrett has described his team as playing with a newfound sense of urgency. We’d imagine this sense of urgency only got stronger with the loss to the Falcons on Sunday night, which knocked the team down another peg.
But even with a 3-5 record on the year and going into a tough road game against the Eagles in Philly this weekend, the Cowboys are not desperate--at least not according to Garrett, who made clear Wednesday morning that he believes there’s a big difference between playing urgent and playing desperate.
“A desperate football team? I wouldn’t say that at all,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “You’ve heard me use the word urgent a lot around here. We believe in urgency 365 days out of the year and that’s where we are right now. We have to be urgent in our preparation on Wednesday, getting ready for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.”
