Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett used the old Oakland Raiders as an example, but not as a good one. The Cowboys committed 13 penalties and despite the infractions, they managed to beat the Philadelphia Eagles. Garrett said for years the Raiders used to win plenty of football games while also being among the league’s leaders in penalties, but that’s not how he wants to do it. In his post game press conference Garrett talked about the penalties. “They used to spin it like it was an aggressive nature that they had and that’s the kind of team that they wanted to be,” Garrett said. “I think there’s a little bit of an element of truth to that. I don’t buy that completely, though. You don’t want to hurt yourself as a football team. Turnovers are a good example of that. Penalties are a good example of that. At times we’ve done a good job of that. Other times we haven’t. I thought we hurt ourselves too much in the game yesterday, particularly on defense.” “You have to be disciplined,” Garrett said. “That has not been a huge issue for us throughout our football team. It has been for a couple of players at times. but for the whole group to have six offside penalties was really disappointing. We have to correct that. We will try a few different things in practice this week to make sure our attention is right to handle that issue going forward.”   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
