Tony Romo, Jason Witten give Jason Garrett an earful
Tony Romo gave coach Jason Garrett an earful as he came off the field following a stalled drive in the red zone during the first quarter of the Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers game on Sunday. Tight end Jason Witten also seemed to have some issues to express to Garrett.
The Cowboys had a second and goal from the five and kept Witten in to block while second-round pick Gavin Escobar went out for a pass on their second drive of the game. Escobar dropped a pass in the end zone that hit him in the hands, leaving Romo in disbelief:
On the next play, Romo tried forcing a pass to Witten that wasn’t there, and it went incomplete. The Cowboys had to settle for a short field goal to go up 6-3.
As he was clearing off the field, Romo, perhaps upset over the playcalling, yelled at Garrett. Announcer Joe Buck described it as Romo giving Garrett an “earful.” FOX also showed Witten saying something to Garrett in an intense matter.
Whatever their issues were seemed to be worked out, because the Cowboys scored a touchdown on their next drive on a 25-yard pass from Romo to Witten.
