Jason Garrett talks about playing the Cowboys
Of course there is extra incentive for beating the Dallas Cowboys this week.
New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is the former Cowboys head coach and he will get his chance at revenge as the Giants take on the Cowboys in an NFC East showdown.
Showdown is a loose term, but when the Giants (0-4) are just one game out of first place from the Cowboys (1-3), we can throw that term around.
Garrett’s time with the Cowboys ended in a strange way, but he did not ignore the elephant in the room as he prepared to take on his former team.
“The biggest thing we’re all focused on is what we can do to help the New York Giants play as well as we can play and that’s what we’re focused on as players , coaches,” Garrett said to the media on Thursday. “Many people around the league, you have history in another place, you know people on other teams.”
Garrett was 85-67 in nine and a half seasons. He won three division titles and two playoff games.
The Cowboys went through a massive overhaul in 2020. Mike McCarthy ended a 10-year tenure of Garrett. Dak Prescott was placed on the franchise tag to “prove himself.” Huge contracts have been given to Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper, so it’s time to prove they are superstars.
However, the Cowboys have been unimpressive and could lead the division solely with a 2-3 record if the team can beat New York.
Meanwhile, the Giants will look to play the revenge bid and get their first win of the season.
