Training camp was literally a day at the beach for the Cowboys yesterday, after coach Jason Garrett delivered for his players.
And according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Garrett may have used a little coach’s discretion in doing so.
Garrett split his players into six groups, giving each group a quarterback, who had to hit the crossbar from 35 yards out. They all missed, even trick-shot artist Alex Tanney.
But then Garrett stepped to the line, and declared his second attempt a hit, even though some thought it might have missed.
“Why is it disputed?” Garrett said with a laugh. “It looked like the crossbar to me.”
“It’s fun,” linebacker Sean Lee said. “Coach Garrett is unbelievable to play for, not only from a motivational standpoint for football, but for making it great, making it fun for us.”
Garrett said the work was deserved, throwing his guys a bone after a good day of work. And while it’s a small gesture, it’s the kind of thing that players remember.
