Ex-Cowboys coach criticizes Jason Garrett for attending World Series
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett popped up in the crowd at Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night, which didn’t sit well with one of his predecessors.
Former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson, now a media personality for FOX Sports, said Sunday that he felt Garrett’s appearance at the game sent the wrong message to fans and players.
“Well, I know the World Series, it’s huge,” Johnson said on FOX’s pregame show Sunday, via Brad Townsend of SportsDay. “But perception: I think it sends the wrong message, not only to the fans, but to the players. At 3-4, there’s work to be done.”
There is, in fact, work to be done. That work probably isn’t getting done on a Friday night during the team’s bye week no matter what, nor should it be. Yes, they have to fix some major issues, but if they fail to do so, it’s probably not for lack of effort and definitely not because of their coach checking out a World Series game during his bye.
