Jason Garrett: David Irving not at The Star today Womens Jaylon Smith Jersey , plus long discussion on Dak Prescott’s accuracy Jason Garrett took his turn in front of the media on Wednesday as the Cowboys begin preparations for a tough home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Here’s what coach had to say. (All Garrett answers are paraphrased and not actual quotes).David Irving is not at The Star on WednesdayThe Cowboys anticipate Irving being back with the Cowboys on Thursday. Jason Garrett said that physically Irving is ready to play, but also acknowledged that he wasn’t at The Star on Tuesday. When asked why he said that it appeared to be the same issue that’s been keeping him away since he’s been reinstated. When pressed on whether he would definitely be there on Thursday, Garrett simply noted that it was the information that he had been told.Brett Maher has done an excellent jobOne of the better decisions that the Cowboys made this season was to go with Brett Maher at kicker. Jason Garrett gave praise to the 28-year old rookie noting that he’s come through for the Cowboys.Troy Aikman made some comments about accuracy among quarterbacksTroy Aikman recently made some comments about accuracy and how it relates to Dak Prescott, the emphasis of them was that people either have accuracy or that they don’t. Garrett said that he believes you certainly are born with talent in different regards but that he believes a lot of things can be refined through practice.Garrett was complimentary of Aikman of the two throughout his answer even telling a story about their playing days together when they went to Jay Novacek’s football camp. He related the story of how little Jimmy wasn't throwing the ball at the camp how they wanted him to, so Garrett asked Aikman what they should do about it. Aikman said they should move him to wide receiver (laughter).More accuracy questions about DakJason Garrett was asked specifically about Dak Prescott’s accuracy to which he responded that, “When he’s in a really good position he can be a very accurate passer.” He also noted that the best QB’s can stay in position with their eyes down field in a busy environment, and that veterans are usually better at it than young QB’s. Said they need to continue to work with Dak on that. He said QBs can move around and climb the pocket in subtle ways. Growing as a quarterback is a necessary thingThere are obviously a lot of questions about Dak Prescott and his accuracy, and Jason Garrett did his best to talk around them. He cited Tom Brady as an example as somebody who’s obviously grown to a great degree (the best ever), but that younger players don’t have that level of experience quite yet. Younger QBs tend to look more harried in the pocket because they might not know the best reads or progressions based on a defense or because they are bothered by heavy traffic in the pocket. He noted you are always working on getting the ball out quicker. The key word is developmentAnticipation on throws is something people have discussed when it comes to Dak, and Garrett continued to hammer home that all things can be developed. It cones down to trust and cutting the ball loose. He thought more time on task with the receivers will always help that. Cowboys loved Jalen Ramsey coming out of Florida StateThe 2016 Draft feels like just yesterday in some respects, and Dallas obviously chose Ezekiel Elliott over Jalen Ramsey. When asked about the All-Pro cornerback Jason Garrett noted that Ramsey jumped off of the tape and that it was apparent how confident he was way back then.An update on injuriesIt’s Week 6 and that means there are some injury situations. In terms of Wednesday’s practice:Chidobe Awuzie, hopeful he can practice todaySean Lee, not expected to practiceMaliek Collins, hopeful he can practice todayTaco Charlton is expected to practiceHow does Jason Garrett define a No. 1 receiver?There’s been a lot of discussion about number one receivers lately. Here’s how Jason Garrett defines it.“It seems to be a term that people have used in recent years for the guy who was the marquee guy when an offensive team breaks the huddle and they give him extra attention, special attention. Difference-making guy who can beat you in a lot of different ways.”Have the Cowboys had that recently?In Jason Garrett’s words, “Absolutely. we’ve had some big-time receivers.”Randy Gregory is getting better and betterAsked if Houston was Randy Gregory’s best game since returning Jason Garrett only noted that Randy is getting “better and better.” Obviously Randy still has a long way to go, but he earned praise from the head coach.How do you keep things optimisticIt can certainly be difficult to stay optimistic and fired up when your offense isn’t performing, and that’s where the Cowboys find themselves these days. Asked how he keeps the Cowboys motivated and away from getting down on themselves Garrett reached for a classic line of his saying that, “you just keep banging away.”Cowboys liked Darian Thompson at the Senior BowlDallas likes their new safety and has for quite some time.Jourdan Lewis did a great job on SundayWhen you recover a fumble in a big-time game you get noticed. Jourdan Lewis had seemed to have fallen out of favor with the Cowboys coaching staff, but he played very well in Houston. Jason Garrett confirmed that.Patience doesn’t seem to be an issue with David IrvingIt would be understandable for a coaching staff’s patience to wear thin with a situation like David Irving’s. It’s obviously very difficult to prepare a game plan and not know if he’s going to be there. Irving has some personal issues he’s working towards and obviously everyone wishes him the best with them, but the Cowboys are trying to get their own work done.Asked if patience can wear thin with a situation like that Garrett responded quite calmly that, “Sometimes guys have issues that they have to deal with.” It seems the Cowboys are willing to wait, but they do have a break point. Garrett noted that during the week there comes a time (he didn’t specify when) where the team ultimately decides that because he hasn’t fulfilled certain requirements (like practicing Womens Deonte Thompson Jersey , etc.) he won’t play in the game.Crunching stats: Ten things that stood out in the Cowboys’ loss to the Panthers It could have been worse. But the Dallas Cowboys’ dismal performance against the Carolina Panthers was absolutely bad enough. The team had little offensive output, and the defense was unable to contain Cam Newton in the first half. It’s time to do a dive into the statistics of the game and try to learn a little bit about what went wrong - and if there are any signs of hope for the next game against the New York Giants and the rest of the season.The offensive game plan was once again too stubborn.This is not about creativity or adjustments. It is about a belief that this team can impose its will on opponents without having to adapt to what they are facing. If they had the offensive line of 2016, with Doug Free still manning right tackle while La’el Collins worked at left guard, then maybe that would still work. But with Travis Frederick out due to his illness, and a somewhat undersized rookie, Connor Williams, at LG, expecting to go in and just ram it down the throats of the Panthers with their outstanding defensive tackles and linebackers was foolish - or worse. Yet the first play of the game was Ezekiel Elliott running at right guard. For a loss of a yard.It was one play in a game that saw a lot of problems for Dallas. But it was the one thing Scott Linehan has been so heavily criticized for: It was predictable, and the Panthers were ready for it. Actually, they were ready for it just by nature of their talent up the middle of their defense. Dallas tried to come out and show they could do what they wanted, and failed. That led to the next thing.Third downs were unmanageable.I didn’t have to do the work on this.Folks, you aren’t going to win many games like that. It is called “getting behind schedule”. If you aren’t seeing a lot of 3rd and 5 or less, you are in trouble. Obviously, Dallas was.That almost always tracks back to what happens on first down, and the Cowboys were boom or (mostly) bust there.It was a few good plays and a bunch of failed ones on first down, which set the tone for the entire game. For the game, the Cowboys were only 2 of 11 on third down conversions, which kind of sums up things right there.Some of the new tools were underutilized.Rico Gathers was inactive, of course, and while that may have been his punishment for his arrest the day of the cutdown, we still don’t know if he can be a red zone weapon. Tavon Austin only saw the field for 10 plays and had just two touches, one of which was called back on penalty. Jamize Olawale, who seems to be much more than just a conventional blocking fullback , only saw six snaps. He was not targeted in the passing game, where he could be very dangerous.They spread the ball around - but to poor effect.Dak Prescott was disappointing, being off on many throws and generally indecisive throughout. But he did try to get the ball to ten different receivers, counting the play to Austin that was called back. That just emphasizes his own failures, unfortunately.The offensive line was just as disappointing.Tyron Smith and La’el Collins both had two penalties. The middle of the line, with Williams and Looney, just weren’t up to the task against the superb DTs of Carolina, especially Kawann Short, who got through for two sacks, two TFLs, and four QB hits. This is still very much a work in progress, but the returning starters should have been better, including Zack Martin. Six sacks, four TFLs, and 10 QB hits is far too much, and mostly falls on their shoulders.The offensive struggles wasted a pretty good defensive effort.The defense certainly wasn’t perfect. They failed to account for Cam Newton’s running ability too often in the first half, and he wound up the leading rusher for Carolina with 58 yards. They also had some really bad tackling, and there was a general sense of confusion at times.But overall, they held Newton’s passing to only 161 yards, a 65% completion rate, a long of only 19 yards, and no touchdowns. They also sacked him three times, which is a good showing against one of the hardest quarterbacks to bring down. In total , Carolina only had 293 yards of offense, and of course they only put up 16 points. You should be able to beat any team that your defense holds to that. Admittedly, the Panthers may have gone into a very conservative mode after half as it became apparent how impotent the Dallas offense was. But still, the defense played good enough to win, at least based on the stats.However, there was one odd stat line on D.Sean Lee was credited with only four tackles (and just one solo), with a QB hit and a pass defended. That may be the worst stat line for him in his career for any game, and certainly for one where he was apparently healthy the entire way. He was off the field more than normal, only playing 88% of the defensive downs. But Jaylon Smith had a somewhat better game statistically, with four tackles, three solo, and one sack on a scrambling Newton. But what really stood out (and might be one sign of hope going forward) is that Leighton Vander Esch was not that far off from Lee’s production, with three tackles (two solo) - and he only played 25% of the snaps. Meanwhile, Demarcus Lawrence was the star of the game, with some other good D line performancesYou don’t often see defensive ends being the leading tackler for their team, but Lawrence did just that, getting six solo stops plus one assist for seven total, a sack, and a fumble recovery. In order of production, Tyrone Crawford, Taco Charlton (yes, he was good in this game), Daniel Ross Authentic Zack Martin Jersey , Antwaun Woods, Dorance Armstrong, and Maliek Collins all had impacts on the game, including the sack from Collins. But Randy Gregory, who left the game early and was only on the field for 22% of the defensive downs, didn’t make the stats table, a very desultory result for his much-anticipated return to football, and one that now has both the mysterious “relapse” issue and his injury hanging over it.The defensive backs were probably the best unit on the field for the whole team.The passing numbers for Carolina bear this out, and they also represented four of the top eight tacklers (not always a good thing, since that means the front seven are not getting the job done). They may not have depth, but they seem very solid. Next week, however, they face a much more dangerous group of receivers on the New York Giants, so we will have to hold back a bit on just how good they are.Things finally picked up late - but how much of that was effectively “garbage time”?Particularly in the fourth quarter when they went no-huddle as they tried to get back into the game, the offense started to move the ball. Things loosened up for Zeke as they passed more, and he got two good runs plus the touchdown on the option play with Dak. And the defense, which could have been gassed, kept up things on their end, stopping the Panthers twice to give Dallas shots at tying the game. But had Carolina gone conservative in the faith that the Cowboys could not score? It is hard to say - but maybe the coaching staff can find something to use there. Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys
