Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett went conservative in several instances down the stretch of Sunday’s victory over the Carolina Panthers, the most memorable of which saw Garrett opt to play for a field goal to give Dallas a five-point lead, and turn things over to the defense.
It worked out, of course, as the Dallas defense shut the door on a 19-14 victory in Charlotte, but many read Garrett’s conservative approach to the late stages of the game as evidence that he lacks trust in quarterback Tony Romo and the offense--which, admittedly, has been prone to ill-timed mistakes this year.
But Garrett maintains that this isn’t the case.
“I have a tremendous amount of trust in our offense,” Garrett said Monday, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Anybody who has followed our football team understands that. My confidence in Tony Romo is high. It’s always been very high. He does a lot of things for our football team.”
