Jason Garrett Has a Dress Code, Marion Barber Already Violated It

Earlier we told you that the Cowboys may be interested in bringing in Jon Gruden to coach the team next season.  One of the reasons we think that might be a good idea is that, simply put, Gruden wouldn’t take any b.s. from anyone on the team.  He’s not a pushover like Wade Phillips or Brad Childress and would have a better shot at keeping a locker room together than Phillips would.  Jason Garrett is trying to show he can be that guy, too.

According to Pro Football Talk, via the NFL Network’s Albert Breer, Garrett has imposed a dress code for his team that requires shirts and ties be worn on game day.  Breer says that Marion Barber already violated the dress code by showing up in jeans and an untucked shirt.  Apparently there are a lot of Cowboys — not just Garrett — who are very unhappy with Barber for breaking the new policy already.

The question for fantasy owners is whether or not Barber will be disciplined.  If Garrett wants to prove he’s head coach material and can turn the Cowboys around, he might bench Barber for at least a quarter.  If Garrett expects a 1-7 team to respect him, he has to show them they’re going to do things his way or they aren’t going to do them at all.  We’ll try to update if anything becomes known about Barber’s status before game time.

    The media’s continued infatuation with a lousy team never ceases to amaze me. So much more to discuss. Ignore Dallas and focus on other teams. America doesn’t give a crap. The sooner you learn this, the better. Just a helpful tip. Stop talking about the Dallas Cowboys.

    You new to the NFL, Kevin? The Dallas Cowboys have just about been the most popular team in the NFL since the Troy Aikman/Emmit Smith days.

    Are you new to playoff football and 1-8 teams? Simply not true, Sir. The media is living in the 70’s.

    As if anyone cares about a violated dress code on a crappy team.

    70’s huh? Go throw “most popular NFL team in America” and then get back to me. I don’t think I said anything about the Cowboys not being horrible this year, but to say “America doesn’t give a crap” is completely ridiculous. You couldn’t possibly be more wrong with that statement.

    They are out of the playoffs this season. They mean nothing to most of America. We don’t care about their problems, their dates, their coach or their owner/GM. They are losers. Have been for years. Popular in a Google search? Maybe because of the cheerleaders. Don’t care. Yet probably 3 out of 10 random stories are about the Dallas Cowboys. Incredible. If you don’t think this is overdone, I don’t know what to tell you.

    Just trying to cover as much as we can. Did something happen in the Colts game that you’re wishing we dedicated the five minutes it took to write the Barber post to?

    I have one game on locally at the moment. Yes, it’s the Cowboys. Again. Thanks, Fox.

    Not really. Just glad I know what Jason Garrett makes. Have no idea what Jim Caldwell or Tpny Dungy were paid. Don’t care. Maybe the media will return to covering what the media usually covers best. Brett Favre crying.

    Joe Buck just called the coast to coast interception by McCann one of the BIG PLAYS of week 10!

    Would be nice to see Gruden go somewhere so all his ass kissing comments on MNF can be turned against him.
