Jason Garrett Says That “Recommitting” Is The Football Version Of New Year’s Resolution

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys had a very successful season, but it wasn’t up to Jerry Jones’ standards in the post season.

The difference between Organized Team Activities (OTA’s) and mandatory mini-camp is just like the second one states, mini-camp is “mandatory”, the OTA’s are voluntary.  However, the Cowboys are not like many teams in this league, they had nearly a 100% attendance for their OTA’s earlier this month.

Per profootballspot.com, Dallas won’t be preparing for any other football team during these three days of mini-camp, started Tuesday and goes thru today (Thursday).  The Cowboys will use these three days to try and simulate a regular season work week.

“A little bit like the in-season schedule so we try to simulate a work week within that minicamp, what it would look like on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during the regular season,” Garrett said. “But the tempo of practice, the meetings, all that stuff will be consistent with what it’s been the last few weeks.”

The Cowboys coach also went into what his team’s slogan will be for this mini-camp.

“’Recommit’ is the essence of life.  When you wake up every day, that’s something we strive to do a good job of around here.  Like a New Years resolution, we wake up and recommit every day.”

He also talked a little about the progress of his rookie first-round pick, Taco Charlton.

“He’s smart, willing to work.  A different player than when he arrived.”

Most people have New Year’s resolution of not drinking as much, losing weight, finding a better job, etc.  The NFL has their own resolutions for the new football season, well at least the Cowboys do, try to get better that next year.  Following a fantastic 2016 season for both Garrett and his Cowboys, they are so close to the Super Bowl, they can taste it.

If the defense can improve in 2017, this team has a real shot at reaching the Super Bowl for the first time in over 20 years!
