Garrett: Jones' Sideline Visit A Non-Issue

Jerry Jones met with Jason Garrett on the sidelines during the loss to Philadelphia



    Some around Dallas kicked up dust in the wake of the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last week as a result of owner and general manager moseying to the sideline from his luxury box in order to meet with head coach Jason Garrett, but, according to the head coach himself, he had no problem with the visit.

    Jones reportedly made the visit to update Garrett on the status of Tony Romo, who had gone down on the Cowboys’ first drive with a hand injury, as well as the outcome of the Giants’ game--and since the Giants won, of course, the Eagles game was rendered pretty much meaningless, meaning that there was no point in rushing any of the banged up starters (like, for example, Romo) back onto the field.

    It’s not a big issue to me at all,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “We are a team. We are a team as players, coaches and personnel people and certainly our general manager and owner. And we communicate. And we feel communication is important. And we just wanted to be on the same page in that situation. So I thought we handled the thing the right way in terms of not risking Tony [Romo] anymore and not risking Felix [Jones]anymore.

    “We had a couple guys on defense who seemed to be doing OK during the game, so we gave them the opportunity to play. Anytime you go out there you want to win the game. But we felt like it was important to manage that situation that we did to get ourselves in the best position that we could be in this week against the Giants.”
