Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is not happy with the effort of his team during Saturday morning’s walk-through practice.
“It wasn’t as good as it needs to be,” Garrett said, via Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram. “The standard for a walk-through is high. Just because you are walking through, and it’s not a full-speed practice, you have to be into it mentally. You have to be sharp. We understand as coaches we are putting a lot of stuff in every day. We anticipate mistakes. That’s why we go through a walk-through. You clean things up. I just think overall the concentration was only OK. It’s got to be better.”
Whatever the reasons, Garrett is putting his team on notice: Practices like these will not be accepted.
“I don’t really care about what the explanation is or what the excuse is,” Garrett said. “We’ve just got to do it better.”
The Cowboys open the preseason against the Dolphins in the Hall of Fame Game in eight days.
