Marion Barber violates Jason Garrett’s dress code

New Cowboys coach Jason Garrett hopes to take control of his team by, among other things, imposing a dress code.  For game days, suits and ties are required.

And so, in the first game played by Cowboys of the Garrett regime, tailback Marion Barber showed up in jeans and an untucked shirt, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

Per a league source, plenty of Cowboys are pissed about Barber’s actions.  It’ll be interesting to see whether Garrett benches Barber for all or any portion of the game.

    Florio-please be more clear. Are the Cowboys “pissed” about Barber or Garrett’s dress code?

    Are they pissed at Barber, or Garrett? Great reporting, Florio.

    Although I hate the Cowgirls I feel “this” dress code thing on game day stinks and the other teammates should show solidarity by showing up in jeans and a tee shirt also. Why a suit and tie, they’re not going to a formal dinner party.

    Hmmm trouble in Dallas or en route to the game, changing the culture indeed! “How ’bout them Cowboys?” Heh

    Sounds like that team needs a lot of discipline.

    “Per a league source, plenty of Cowboys are pissed about the situation.”

    so who are they pissed at? Barber or Garrett?
    Time to follow the rules boys!

    Yeah, because discipline is for LOSERS, right?

    Champions are unregimented and undisciplined and rebel against their coach’s rules?

    What a maroon…

    Who are the cowboys?

    make a statement and send his ass back to the hotel. Barber has not been special anyway and he just gave garrett an opportunity to teach the team some discipline

    Hysterical. All the problems that team has and Garrett resorts to one of the oldest cliches in the coaching book – make them dress up. Of course, the very first day, someone challenges him on it. Now, we get to see what the “tough guy’ does. It’s not a football team anymore, it’s a reality show. Welcome to “Real World Dallas” where players stop being polite and start getting real.

    I would tend to think that the Cowboys are pissed about the dress code. People who are used to dressing however they want do not appreciate being told that they “have to” wear a suit and tie. In this case, the fact that Garrett is only the “interim” head coach makes it even harder to digest.

  16. livenbreathefootball says: Nov 14, 2010 3:58 PM

    It’s about discipline. It’s about being a professional and looking like one. If you look like a slob, you will be play like a slob. Show you care by not being a slob. And show you will listen to the head coach by following the rules, even if you disagree and think the rule is stupid. If you question the coach on stupid rules, you will question anything. Then, there goes the game.

    I’m going to venture to say the cowboys are pissed at barber, since the “situation” is that he violated the code.

  18. eskinsux says: Nov 14, 2010 4:18 PM

    this from a team that has dancers in cages as they make their way to the feild during a home game…….Barber sucks and is so overated it’s not funny, but this is a complete joke………Schedule more fights Jerry, ass clown….

  19. FoozieGrooler says: Nov 14, 2010 4:26 PM

    jerseybaron – look up the word “discipline”.
    It seems you’re unfamiliar with that word.

  20. clock1is1king says: Nov 14, 2010 4:29 PM

    Well, they are “America’s Team”, shouldn’t that mean that they have to dress up for games?

    Their coach used to wear a suit and tie with that darn hat on the sidelines, why not take things back to kinder, gentler times when there was no Mel Blount Rule, no Hines Ward Rule, and no James Harrison Rule?

  21. mrone50 says: Nov 14, 2010 4:45 PM

    How about them Quitboys?!? And so much for that tighter ship there Garrett.

  22. joetoronto says: Nov 14, 2010 5:23 PM

    jerseybaron:

    It’s not about wearing suits or wearing jeans.

    It’s about doing what the HC says, period.

    Bingo.

    Challenging the new coach in week one is a clear indication of where Barber’s coming from.

    Benching Barber wont make a difference, he acts like he doesnt want to play anyway at least at times. Fine him make a statement and give Ghoice the opportunity to show his ability

    “Per a league source, plenty of Cowboys are pissed about Barber’s actions.”

    Seems pretty cut and dried genius. Specifically mentioning Barber sums it up. Point goes to Florio.

    That being said, Barber is a total disrespectful, undisciplined POS to pick this week of all weeks to thumb his nose at his new coach. Apparently the rest of the team “gets it” as displayed by their play against the NYG…

  26. FinFan68 says: Nov 14, 2010 10:41 PM

    @snarkygurl: the statement “Per a league source, plenty of Cowboys are pissed about Barber’s actions.” used to read “Per a league source, plenty of Cowboys are pissed about the situation.” No need to blast somebody. The article was changed for clarity…but I would suspect that someone with a significantly lower IQ than “genius” could have figured that out on their own.
