Jason Garrett not eager to use Doug Pederson comments as motivational tactic
Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson’s comments on Monday looked like bulletin board material for the Dallas Cowboys, but Jason Garrett doesn’t seem like he’s rushing to post them there.
Pederson all but guaranteed that the Eagles would win in Dallas in Week 7, projecting confidence ahead of a matchup with the reeling Cowboys. Garrett wouldn’t go into much detail regarding what he’d say to his team when asked about Pederson’s comments, but he didn’t seem urgent to notify them of what Pederson said.
Jason Garrett was asked if he will show these comments to Cowboys players: “We probably don’t want to share what we share with our players too much, but we do our best when we just focus on ourselves and what we need to do to prepare to play our best football.” https://t.co/reDXoDQ85N

Cowboys players will hear about those remarks whether or not Garrett points them out, so it’s not really necessary. If they want to derive motivation from it, so be it. Garrett, who seems to be under increasing pressure despite what the front office says, is more focused on getting the 3-3 Cowboys right in football terms.
