America’s team have wowed the British fans and press during their visit to London this week. Make no mistake this is no publicity tour for the Dallas Cowboys; this team means business. When asked for his thoughts on bringing his team to London, Defensive Coordinator Rod Marinelli said, “The environment can change but we don’t.” Marinelli came to Wembley and won with the Chicago Bears in 2011. He added, “I don’t care where we’re at, just do your job”.
“It’s a Dallas Cowboys thing. It’s what we do”
Marinelli doesn’t take fools likely, “This job is about taking the opportunity when it comes. If you work hard and give your best, I like you. If you don’t, I don’t like you”.
Head Coach Jason Garrett has embraced his team’s trip to the UK and he’s using it as an opportunity to improve comradery. “We’re all going to see the Tower of London and the crown jewels”, said Garrett. “We’ll then go out and have a nice meal together (in London). It’s a Dallas Cowboys thing. It’s what we do”.
Garrett was looking confident on Friday and walked with a swagger. Romo took part in his second practice session and worked on routes with the first team. They’ll be hoping to end their two-game losing streak against the 1&8 Jaguars. A lot will depend on whether their star signal caller can play.
