When the Cowboys win, it’s a love fest. When they lose, it’s a roasting.
In his Monday press conference, Jason Garrett said that he takes the good with the bad when it comes to Tony Romo, and that he's a special player. Romo returned the love, speaking to Ben & Skin on ESPN Radio Dallas to talk about his relationship with his coach.
“There’s a lot that goes into winning and losing, and sometimes it can be as simple as missing or making a kick, it can be as simple as a holding penalty on a touchdown you throw. The games literally can come down to these plays, and that’s why you need everybody, that’s why you work so hard, because you really don’t want them to. … All I know is that Jason’s done a great job. He’s instilled a confidence in the football team, but probably his best ability is to help shape the team to play the same game every week. And when I say that, I mean we could be undefeated right now or have no wins, and we’re going to take the same approach the next week, and you’re going to see the same football team out there. And that’s hard to do in the National Football League.”
I think we have, personality-wise, some of the best coaches, the easiest to get along with. And at the same time, some tough guys who hold players accountable. … These guys are phenomenal. They’re lucky enough to have both sides of the spectrum, where they can tell you what a great job you’re doing and then they can dog-cuss you out the next second. And I think that that’s a good quality to have. And these guys really possess that.”
