Jason Garrett press conference: Awuzie’s back tightened up in practice

It’s Thursday of a game week Womens Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , that means head coach Jason Garrett addressed the media. Here’s what he had to say. (All Garrett answers are paraphrases of what he said and not direct quotes).How do you balance some of the new offensive schemes with having cornerstone plays you feel comfortable running?It’s the versatility of the players, we want to attack in different ways. You want some cornerstones https://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com … sch-jersey plays in your offense, in the running game and the passing games. Everything else complements off that, the double-moves, the misdirection, or putting guys in different spots. Best offenses have givens (cornerstone plays), things you are confident in.What happened to Chidobe Awuzie yesterday? His back tightened up in middle of practice, it looked like he was moving better today. We’ll see how he is today in practice.Parker Ehinger?He was hurt in practice, we are working out a guy today, Xavier Su’a-Filo. We’ll have to see about a scope for Ehinger. (You can read more about Su’a-Filo here and here.)Can you talk about Julius Peppers? One of the best to ever play in the NFL, he was playing when I was was playing. He’s a great player wherever he’s been. He’s a good run defender and an elite pass rusher, he’s productive and makes game-changing plays.Everybody says he’s a true professional.Can you talk about Travis Frederick as a person?One of the best guys I’ve ever met http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/ … aim-jersey , just an outstanding person and a really good player. A lot of what he does on field reflectson him off the field. How hard he works, how he is as a teammate. I’ve talked about this before, this health situation is about Travis the person first.The relationship between Dak Prescott and Scott Linehan? They need to be on the same page, they need to talk. The QB needs to understand why we do certain things from Scott’s view, and Dak needs to be honest and direct with Scott about things. You try to make the environment QB-friendly, there are things you can do about that and you choose to do what a QB does well. Dak can do a lot of different things so we don’t have to limit that, but it’s important for him to be direct, open and honest.Looking back do you still think Prescott tried to do too much last year? If you go back through NFL history, you try to make things easy for the QB. If your defense isn’t good, or your offensive line has problems or your running back, if you have no playmakers, that makes it hard for a QB. The load is spread around but if one guy has to carry the load it’s too hard.Randy Gregory’s body has changed Authentic Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , looks bigger, stronger? When we drafted him, we knew that was going to be part of his development. You like a guy who is tall, lean, explosive at that position. You understand they will grow into the body,but he’s never going be a squat-body, a two-gapper guy. Gaining strength will help his explosiveness.What do you talk about with Brett Maher? He’s a professional, he’s kicked a lot in games in college and in the CFL. He’s demonstrated that he is prepared. Now just carry that preparation into the game and continue to execute. Jason Garrett decided to trust his defense by punting on a short fourth down in Houston territory in an overtime loss to the Texans.The choice by the Dallas coach also said a lot about a sputtering offense that simply hasn't looked good enough to get the Cowboys where they want to go in 2018, even with NFL rushing leader Ezekiel Elliott.Moments after Elliott was stuffed on third-and-1 from the Texans 42 closing in on the halfway mark of the 10-minute extra period, Garrett opted not to try it again on a night that his best offensive player was averaging just 2.7 yards per carry.DeAndre Hopkins' spectacular 49-yard catch and run to set up Ka'imi Fairbairn's 36-yard field goal in a 19-16 Texans win sparked a steady round of second-guessing for a coach already fending off questions about a bland offensive scheme with a bunch of receivers failing badly at trying to replace Dez Bryant.And it led to more questions about those receivers, with a sobering answer from executive vice president of player personnel Stephen Jones on his radio show Monday. The Cowboys (2-3) host Jacksonville (3-2) on Sunday."I don't think there's a lot you can do about it," Jones said on the possibility of personnel changes before once again rejecting the persistent question of whether the Cowboys would bring back Bryant Womens Joe Looney Jersey , the franchise leader in touchdown catches who still hasn't signed elsewhere almost six months after his release.The Cowboys "really felt like we could with this group of receivers move the football," Jones said. "I still think we can. It's just a matter of continuing to work on working at it and getting in rhythm and executing and not getting behind the chains."Dak Prescott is having success throwing to Elliott out of the backfield along with Geoff Swaim, the primary replacement for Jason Witten so far at tight end. But the numbers for receivers have been meek more often than not this season.Take away Prescott's improbable scramble for a 44-yard heave to Tavon Austin, and Dallas receivers had five catches for 36 yards in Houston. It was the first time they combined for fewer than 100 yards (80).Dallas entered Monday 26th in the NFL with an average of 121 yards per game from receivers, and 30th in passing offense and points per game."We have to get better obviously," Garrett said. "At times this year, we have done a good job in the passing game. We have to be more consistent. We have to be more efficient. And we have to be able to continue to make those explosive plays if we want to score the points to win the games."Garrett thought the Dallas defense dominated the second half, which is why he chose to punt. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones thought the Cowboys were getting outplayed by then, and therefore second-guessed his coach while trying to say he wasn't. Essentially, Jones said there are times for risk, and that was one of them.Garrett, under heavy criticism along with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan over a unit that can't seem to do its part http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/ … ath-jersey , says he feels he still has the support of Jones in his eighth full season, with just two playoff trips to show for it and a third looking shaky without much of a threat in the passing game."I don't think this is the time to get into critiquing any one person, whether it's the quarterback, whether it's the receivers, whether it's the coaches, whether it's the coordinator, the play-caller, the head coach," Stephen Jones said. "We've got a lot of things about this football team that we like."Right now, the passing game isn't one of them.
