Witt's certainly going to be a big part of what we do with our offensive football team. But that doesn't mean Gavin can't be more involved."

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he won't shake up the coaching staff during the team's bye week in Week 11.

The Cowboys were held to 193 yards of total offense in their Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The team's defense ranks last in the league with an average of 439.8 yards per game. Jones believes the team needs to play more man coverage on defense. "You need to probably man up more in the secondary than we've been doing, rather than relying on zone," Jones said. "Because if we can't get pressure and we're relying on the traditional zone as you might mentally picture it, then that's a recipe for what happened to us the other night."

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 10:09:21 -0700
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the team has to do a better job improving the pass rush moving forward after Week 4. "They did not play to their level and a lot of different reasons for that," Garrett said. "We're playing a lot of different combinations ... but there are no excuses. One of the things that they did is they possessed the ball a lot. They were in that no-huddle offense and [Rivers] was at the line of scrimmage and they're playing at a pace that they're controlling. Sometimes that's hard on defensive linemen but that's the nature of this league. That happens a lot and you just have to make sure that you're ready for the challenge."

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett praised CB Orlando Scandrick, saying he competed well with good wide receivers. "Scandrick did some good things," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.

A little bit of a chip on his shoulder, kind of like a bolder or a mountain. We think that's good. He brings that with every opportunity we give him, whether it's a as teams guy or an inside cover guy, as a nickel or as an outside guy. I thought he competed well with some good receivers."
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 09:43:45 -0700
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the team needs to put more of an emphasis on the running game in order to balance out the offense after their 17-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2. RB DeMarco Murray had only 12 carries against the Chiefs and didn't run the ball after the 2:12 mark in the third quarter. "Obviously we want to have more balance, not only more balance at the end of the game but more balance throughout the game," Garrett said. "We have to run the ball more than 16 times in the game, and we have to be able to run it throughout the game. We just simply have to do a better job of that." The Cowboys are averaging 62 yards rushing through the first two weeks.
Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys preached the same thing after their Week 1 victory, and they led that entire game. It's frustrating to see for Murray owners, but if the team remains committed to improving their offense, he needs to touch the ball more.
Thu, 12 Sep 2013 09:13:34 -0700

Sat, 20 Jul 2013 16:21:49 -0700
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said he is fine with giving up the play calling to offensive coordinator Bill Callahan because he has been looking to get more involved with the defense and special teams. "I made a very conscious effort over the last couple of years to coach the whole football team. I spent time with the defensive guys on their side of the practice field. I spent a lot of time in the defensive meetings and the special teams meetings. I've always done that. But just the mechanics of someone else calling the actual plays allows me to maybe take a different view of it. So you'll see that on the practice field. That's how we operated all throughout the offseason in our OTAs and our mini-camp, and it worked very smoothly for us, and we'll continue to do that," Garrett said.
