Cowboys Shrug Off Jimmy Johnson's 'Country Club' Comment
Fox analyst and former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson caused a stir this week when he said the Cowboys are stuck in a country-club atmosphere at Valley Ranch and that no one is in fear for their jobs.
Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegam reports Coach Jason Garrett, who played under Johnson, said he tries to create an atmosphere not unlike what he learned as a player under coaches such as Johnson during his career.
"I don't really have any comment on that," he said. "We do things the way we do things here from a football standpoint, and we believe that we practice the right way, we meet the right way and we create the right atmosphere of urgency for our players. It's what I learned as a player and coach in this league, and that's what we're trying to create here as a football team."
Tight end Jason Witten has respect for Johnson but said he's not around here enough to know the atmosphere.
"These guys are working hard," Witten said. "We know what the expectations are, and trust me, we feel it every day."

I think there's a lot to what Jimmy said. There's no accountability at Valley Ranch. Remember on SNF when Collinsworth said that the Falcons players who got called for penalties had to stand in front of their teammates the next day in the locker room or meeting room? That's why they're one of the least penalized teams in the NFL. Wish the Cowboys did that.
