Jason Garrett Says Cowboys ‘Appreciate’ Jerry Jones, But They’re Not Thinking Super Bowl Right Now

Jason Garrett Says Cowboys 'Appreciate' Jerry Jones, But They're Not Thinking Super Bowl Right NowCowboys coach Jason Garrett pulled his best Bill Belichick on Wednesday when trying to tamp down excitement about owner Jerry Jones' recent bragging about his Cowboys.

Jones caused a little stir this week when he said that, despite a 2-3 start and some truly atrocious performances, the Cowboys can still win — and big. He said Dallas is focused on getting to the Super Bowl this year.

But for Garrett, who has to actually make those wins happen, the story was different Wednesday.

"We are not focused on that," Garrett said simply. "We think Jerry Jones is an outstanding owner. We appreciate everything he does for our football team. But our focus is practicing well today."

Garrett reiterated that with a little Belichickian verbiage, too.

"We are focused on meeting Wednesday and preparing for Carolina on Sunday," he said. "That is where our emphasis is as players and coaches."

There's no word on whether anyone told Jones the Super Bowl-or-bust plan was off.
