Cowboys’ Jason Garrett calls team out ahead of preseason opener

The Dallas Cowboys will begin their preseason slate Saturday evening against the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara. At this point, it doesn’t seem like head coach Jason Garrett is happy.

Through the first 10 practices of training camp, the embattled head man wants to see a lot more from his squad.

“We’re way far off as a team,” Garrett said, via 105.3 The Fan. “We’re not even close.”

That’s not necessarily a great assessment from the head coach. It also comes at a time of major drama in Big D, primarily the continued holdout of star running back Ezekiel Elliott as well as the contract situations pertaining to Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper.

Dallas heads into the 2019 season with potentially unrealistic Super Bowl aspirations. The bar has been set high by owner Jerry Jones.

But given Garrett’s take on where the Cowboys are, they have a lot of work to do between now and Week 1 against the division-rival New York Giants.
