The Dallas Cowboys seem ready and set for their game this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Head Coach Jason Garrett appeared very relaxed and positive about the majority of his team but would not confirm any starting players, depending on their health at the time. It appears Rolando McClain has missed his third practice in a row and when prompted on his return to the game Garrett responded “We’ll see, hopefully he’ll do something today..not positive about that yet”, he did however, confirm that the 25 year old Line Backer had walked through the whole week. We are to assume he won’t play this Sunday but as we all know the NFL is full of surprises…
On entering the press conference Jason Garrett, as expected, was asked to explain the latest on Tony Romo, to which he replied “he looked pretty comfortable to me, he had a good day yesterday”. Out on the field in practice the Quarter Back appeared in great form and confident in his movement.
We asked Jason Garrett to reflect on the defensive team compared to last year and what ceilings they’ve faced so far: Garett explained “We’ve done some good things, I think the guys understand our scheme and play it better, the guys have really stepped up, as players have been injured, players from the outside have come in and done a great job for us. I feel good about how they have improved. We certainly have room for improvement. They play with a relentless spirit…they are a physical group and you have to do that every week.”
The Head Coach also shared his views on…
Tyrone Crawford: ”We hope he can move around today, didn’t do anything the last two days.”
Playing at Wembley: ”First time we will practice at Wembley will be tomorrow, we will walk through, we’ve been told it’s a great field and stadium.We’re aware it can be thick at times but it’s been pretty slick because of the weather. It’s all about testing it out with the cleats and adjusting. We’ve played on grass plenty times before.
Jaguars’ Blake Bortles: ”He’s a talented player, strong athletic, good arm, tough and able to make a lot of plays, saw that in college and we see that in him with the Jaguars. As do most young QB’s he’s starting to get more and more comfortable. He’s a real competitor.”
