Jason Garrett says “boring” is subjective
Jason Garrett is heading into what many NFL analysts think is a do-or-die year for the Dallas Cowboys’ head coach. After several years of mediocrity, Garrett and the Cowboys enter a critical year for this polarizing, yet talented group. However, despite all these storylines, a reporter decided to ask Garrett a question that was not only outside the usual spectrum, but also one that apparently irked the Cowboys coach.
Instead, he was asked about his personality. More specifically, if the coach believed he was boring.
“I don’t really know the nature of that question,” Garrett replied, the annoyance in his eyes hidden by a pair of stylish sunglasses.
The reporter explained that Garrett told Cowboys players to be boring, brief and professional with the media in his opening remarks at training camp. That meeting was recorded and subsequently posted on Peter King’s new football website.
The reporter didn’t stop there, as he asked Garrett the question, “Are you boring” one more time.
“I think boring is probably a subjective term,” Garrett said, now just counting down the seconds until this all would end. “Some people find certain things boring, other people don’t. Some people think baseball is the most boring game ever. I was just talking about my dad, he’s riveted to 162 baseball games every night. He loves it. Every part of that game. So I think it’s probably a subjective thing in life, and I think it’s probably in the eye of the beholder.”
