Jason Garrett Channeled Marshawn Lynch In Repeating The Same Answer To Questions About Lucky Whitehead
Well, if you want to get people to stop asking you invasive questions then that's certainly the way to do it.....assuming you're a Skittle-loving fan favorite whose biggest slip-up was giving reporters too much leeway and credit at the start of your professional career as a running back.
Not sure if that same "push the tummy to get it to repeat the same crap" strategy is as effective when you're the head coach of a football team in a massive market that just fired an innocent player for a crime he didn't commit after excusing about a dozen more egregious crimes that your more accomplished players undoubtedly did commit. Call me crazy, but that might not have been the time or the place for the repetitive answer that doubles as an unapologetic non-answer approach.
Now granted, echoing "we made a decision that we deemed in the best interest of the Dallas Cowboys" is a touch more appropriate than "I'm just here so I don't get fined", but presumptuously cutting a player for having their identity stolen is a bit more deserving of an actual response than run-of-the-mill media unfriendliness.
That's not to say I am surprised that the guy that called a professional athlete a liar right to his face without even letting a day long investigation play out first decided to opt of answering to his unprofessionalism, but it is to say that that's exactly what he did by reiterating the same vague, blanket PR statement over and over again. I can actually empathize with Jason Garrett's lack of faith in a guy that's gotten caught up in two of the strangest scandals that the NFL has ever seen in one single offseason. I can't, however, respect him hiding behind his sunglasses and reading off a script instead of owning up to an obvious mistake.
