Garrett "Itching" to Get Back to Football

2013 will be Jason Garrett's third full season as head coach



    After an injury-plagued 2012 and a second consecutive 8-8 finish, it’s easy to see why Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is chomping at the bit to get back to work on a brand new season. He wants to get that bad taste out of his mouth, and he’s certainly not the only one.

    “We worked really hard in the offseason, had a great offseason, and then you get away from football for a little bit and you start itching,” Garrett told the team’s official website Thursday. “I think we all are, as players and coaches, itching to get back to work. The plane departs for Oxnard tomorrow at 4 o’clock. We’re excited to be on it.”

    Obviously, after 2012, Garrett is particularly excited over the idea of getting a laundry-list of starters back--of once again playing with a full deck, if you will.

    “Everybody seems ready to go, and really the injured guys from the season who worked through the offseason made great progress in their rehab,” Garrett said. “Everybody has been going 100 miles per hour to get themselves right.”
