As is customary, Jason Garrett will hold regular press conferences throughout the team’s time at training camp. Here is the recap of today’s press conference. (All answers are paraphrased and not actual quotes).<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="baXavh">Can you put Dak Prescott’s accomplishments into context on his birthday, age 26?We wished him happy birthday, he’s accomplished a lot. He and I are alike, he’s thinking about today’s practice and nothing else. What makes him good is focusing on the now and going forward.Impact of Gil Brandt?Legendary figure, to football in general, and to the Dallas Cowboys, to all the coaches, scouts he’s impacted. Revolutionary figure, because the way he and the Cowboys were doing things before anybody else did them. He and the Cowboys did this in early 60s, the ways of evaluating players, putting teams together, how to write scouting reports, all of those things have become models for others. His impact is long-lasting. Paul Brown gets credit for so many innovations like practice film, playbooks, etc. Gil Brandt is similar, he’s a part of what teams do today. The pads coming on today, who are you interesting in seeing, guys like Travis Frederick?It’s a day we’re excited to see everyone , vets and younger guys, Excited to see where the team is. After the offseason program, we’re excited to play football, practice the fundamental stuff. It will be a physical practice.What does it say about Sean Lee that he’ll play special teams?It goes back to my first impression of him when I first met him at a 30-player visit. He had a look in his eye like he’s crazy, he loves ball, he wants to be great, he wants to take advantage of opportunities. He has a positive impact, an outstanding player. He’s even a better person than player, his leadership is off the charts. Doesn’t surprise me one bit he’ll play special teams.He’s highly respected in the locker room, no stone unturned. He’s here early and stays late, engages with others. Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith, and other guys see that.Were you surprised when Jason Witten returned?I was not surprised because how much he loves the game. It is in the core of his being, He feels he left a little meat on the bone, so he listened to his heart and came back. Like Sean Lee he loves the game, a leader, positive impact on team. Is there a specific way you might use Witten?He can play every down and situation, he blocks, he’s hard to guard, he shows great poise Randy White Jersey , can communicate with others, all of that is positive. He can work in any situation. Helps the younger tight ends, too. How do you balance Witten and plying someone like Blake Jarwin?Competition. It brings out the best in players. Competition over starters and roles, we find who will play on the practice field. You can have two or three tight ends in a game at a time, so there are many roles and responsibilities.How has Rod Marinelli evolved as a coach?When I first met him I was still playing, when he was in front of the room you thought “wow who is this guy?” So much respect for him, everybody who knows hims loves and respects him. He has strong convictions that he’s carried through his career. His greatness is he can evolve and connect with any player. He holds younger guys to high standards and they respect that. He’s a special guy.Xavier Woods?He grows when he plays, we really liked him out of school, he was always around the play. PBUs, interceptions, fumble recoveries. He’s quiet by nature, initially we thought is this the same guy? But things started to click infor him early last year and he started to have a presence, then communicated better with others and helped the defense.What is special about DeMarcus Lawrence?Starts with who he is, he’s hungry, loves the game. If you study pass rushes and sacks, some come on uniqueness and moves, but so many come just from determination. He’s got that in spades. He has ability and athleticism, but it’s really about determination. We found out about that in his rookie year when he recovered a fumble in the playoff game against Detroit then basically gave it back. A few plays later made a great sack that sealed the game.What are the best traits for a center?The center has to be a leader, he has to understand the offense as much as anybody Chuck Howley Color Rush Jersey , must have command. Been around great ones and they are in charge, they help the whole offensive unit. Of course they need to have physical traits to play, footwork and technique, it’s a challenging spot, we’re fortunate we have a good one. Travis is a smart guy, such a presence. Travis was so engaged last year with our football team last year. He was at every meeting walk-thru, he developed a coaching demeanor. He helped Looney, Colombo, etc.When you saw him early last year in training camp and on tape, did you think something was wrong?We did say that, that something was wrong. He was on the ground more than he had ever been. You say he’ll get going, but he didn’t have the same spirit. Everybody did a great job of finally figuring it out. How he and everybody handled it was off the charts. Do you have a veteran’s day off schedule? We have a preliminary schedule. Frederick and Cobb won’t practice today. We want to give some veterans time off. Drew Brees and the Saints have a chance to do something that should seem familiar to Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys. If it happens, New Orleans might even have the NFC South title already in hand by the end of the week.The record-setting quarterback will go for an 11th straight win after a season-opening loss in a visit to the Cowboys on Thursday night. That’s exactly what Dallas did when Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott were rookie sensations in 2016.It won’t be a franchise record the way it was for Dallas. The Cowboys might remember when New Orleans started 13-0 on the way to a Super Bowl title nine years ago, because they won on the road to start the Saints’ season-ending three-game skid.The Saints can’t afford a similar slump if they want the NFC’s top seed, which Dallas had with 13 wins two years ago. The Los Angeles Rams enter the week with the same 10-1 record. But New Orleans can wrap up the division title with four games remaining with a win and a Carolina loss at Tampa Bay on Sunday.“You don’t begin to count, but then you start beginning to do the things that are necessary to win,” said Saints coach Sean Payton, architect of the two longest winning streaks in franchise history. “Generally, if you are going to have a decent team , you are going to win some games in a row. It is going to be hard not to if you aspire to get into the postseason.”The Cowboys (6-5) have a modest three-game run, capped by a Thanksgiving win over Washington that vaulted them to a tie for the NFC East lead with the Redskins. Questions about the future of coach Jason Garrett have been replaced by talk of a second division title in three years.“We have all the confidence in ourselves,” said Prescott, coming off a season-high 289 yards passing. “They put on their pants the same way we do. They’ve won 10, and I guess we’ve won three (in a row). As I’ve said, we’re going to take it one game at a time. That’s all that matters.”OLD AND YOUNGBrees, less than two months shy of his 40th birthday, leads the NFL in completion percentage and passer rating. The 23-year-old Elliott feels like a rookie again, with a chance to match his career-best run of four straight 100-yard games from 2016, when he won the rushing title.With three consecutive games of at least 120 yards rushing, Elliott has overtaken Todd Gurley for the league rushing lead.“I feel like I’m in a good place right now,” said Elliott, who has 1,074 yards to 1,043 for Gurley. “Coaches have been doing a great job of putting me in runs where I’m comfortable and just getting me going early and letting me get that momentum and being able to carry it through the game.”STATE PRIDEBrees, an Austin native, cherishes his Texas roots and wasn’t about to downplay his latest chance to visit the Cowboys. “I can’t say it’s no big deal,” said Brees, who was in high school during the Dallas Super Bowl dynasty of the 1990s. “I remember waking up every Sunday morning and watching the Cowboys after church. That was a big deal growing up. I played a state championship game in the old Texas Stadium.”The NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards has some memorable road victories against the Cowboys Tony Romo Jersey , starting with a blowout in prime time his first year with New Orleans in 2006. There was also a dramatic Thanksgiving comeback in 2010. Now he’s having one of his best seasons. “I feel like we’ve had some really good teams when we played them,” he said. “I feel like there’s always been a lot at stake.”PRESCOTT TO COOPERDallas’ trade for new No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper is paying immediate dividends. Not only is the offensive efficiency much better, but Cooper is among the NFL’s first-down conversion rate leaders for receivers since coming over from Oakland for the Cowboys’ 2019 first-round pick.Cooper’s 180 yards against Washington were a team Thanksgiving record, and the 90-yard touchdown tied for the third-longest catch in club history. “When you are a great player like him and you get separation and run routes, it makes my job easy,” Prescott said. “So when you have that, give credit to him.”DON’T FORGET DEFENSEThe Cowboys have the fourth-best scoring defense in the NFL at 19.3 points per game. But the Saints have outperformed Dallas in that category the past three weeks, winning by an average score of 43-13, capped by a 31-17 Thanksgiving win over Atlanta . The Cowboys have allowed an average of 21 points during their winning streak.“Their defense is definitely playing really well right now, so we have to do a good job of possessing the ball, running the ball, try to give our defense some breaks because we know what they have on the other side,” Cowboys right guard Zack Martin said.
