As Jason Garrett gets settled in as interim coach of the Cowboys, Albert Breer of NFL Network sprays a little rain (or possibly a less clear liquid) on Garrett’s parade.
Breer reports that he hears a majority of the players in the locker room “don’t like [Garrett] at all.”
Of course, it’s not a popularity contest. As one league source told us on Sunday morning regarding the current head coach of the Vikings, “Brad Childress is disliked by all.”
And yet when the players had an opportunity to lay down late in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals to ensure Chilly would be fired, they chose winning.
So who cares if the players don’t like Garrett. They apparently liked Wade Phillips, and that was good for one win in eight games.
