Jason Garrett wasn’t the best coach during his tenure with the Cowboys, and he is showing why with his comments on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
You have to love people who are stuck in the Stone Age in regards to their knowledge of football. It’s even better when it comes from a former head coach who has been paid millions of dollars to learn about and master the sport.
Former Cowboys head coach and current broadcaster Jason Garrett has clearly not used his time wisely to catch up on what the modern game of football requires.
Perhaps that is why his teams have always struggled.
Be warned, this statement is actually a little shocking when you think that this comes from a professional:
Yes, there are some question marks on the offensive line for the Bucs. They aren’t as bad as one would think, but there are three new guys-two that are brand-new full-time starters, so that is different from what Tampa has put on the field for the last two years.
It is the comment after that where Garrett makes himself look silly.
Tom Brady is certainly not at his best in a run-heavy attack. The GOAT threw the ball over 700 times last season and should’ve won the MVP. In fact, the team probably would’ve won the Super Bowl if they threw the ball more.
The Bucs don’t need to run the ball against the Cowboys. Running the ball against Dallas is only going to take Brady out of his rhythm and take the foot off the pedal.
It is also hilarious for Garrett to mention the need to ineffectively run Ezekiel Elliott, the second-best running back on his own roster and the fifth-best offensive threat, into the teeth of the Buccaneer defense.
Yeah, good luck with that one.
The run game just isn’t what it used to be. Both teams are at their best when throwing the ball, and the same is true for almost every team in the league.
Perhaps it is now become a bit more clear that the Cowboys could’ve won something during Jason Garrett’s tenure if they just did the opposite of everything he wanted for the better part of a decade.
Brady and the Bucs will show the world just how wrong Garrett is when they come out throwing on Sunday night.
