Pro Football Hall of Famer and legendary Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach was on ESPN Radio’s “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd on Monday to discuss a number of Cowboys-related issues, and while there, he delivered a sort of vote of confidence for head coach Jason Garrett.
Namely, according to Staubach, Garrett has the ability--much like Jimmy Johnson--to work with Jerry Jones, a skill that is uniquely important in Dallas, where Jones likes to be hands-on (many believe) to a fault.
"I believe that you got to get the coach and, in this case, Jerry Jones the owner and general manger in-sync," Staubach said, via the Dallas Morning News. "And I think the formula’s there again. It was there for a while with Jimmy Johnson. Jason Garrett I really think can deal with having an owner that wants to be involved.
“I think Bob Kraft is involved. Not as much as Jerry, but he still has a great relationship with Bill Belichick. I think Jason Garrett and Jerry Jones are going to continue to develop a relationship that’s going to make a difference here."
