While Jerry Jones Wants To Win ‘Five In A Row,’ Jason Garrett Is Merely Seeking For Consistency
No sooner had the ink dried on Dez Bryant’s five-year $70 million contract on Wednesday afternoon than Jerry Jones’ emotions got the better of him. After congratulating Bryant on becoming the second-highest paid wide receiver in the NFL, Jones told Bryant that he wanted the Cowboys to win five consecutive Super Bowls.
While the Cowboys’ owner is basking on imagination island, Jason Garrett is simply trying to ensure that his team improves upon their 12-4 season from a year ago? Just how important would that accomplishment be?
Well, let’s pause to remember that Garrett is trying to become the first Cowboys head coach since Barry Switzer (1994-96) to win a playoff game in successive seasons.
This one little fact is one more reminder that while last season’s postseason run seemingly came out of nowhere, there are more pertinent traits that Garrett is trying to instill in his team. Traits such as consistency, a characteristic which has been lacking at Valley Ranch for nearly two decades.
