Marshall Faulk Calls Out Dallas Media

Thursday, December 18, 2008

During a conference call yesterday, Marshall Faulk decided to hint at the fact that the Dallas media was/is too soft on Offensive Coordinator, Jason Garrett. The only problem? It was during a conference call with the Dallas media. Via the Star-Telegram....

“You [reporters] kind of gave [Garrett] a pass,” Faulk offered up during a 35-minute NFL Network conference call today. “Whereas for Brian Stewart, the defensive coordinator, when things weren’t clicking on defense, you guys attacked him in the media.”

Faulk was “surprised” when Brad Johnson replaced Romo on Oct. 19 at St. Louis that the Cowboys didn’t seem to know “what kind of game plan they were going to run, and not able to implement it, say, against the Rams.” The Cowboys lost that game 34-14.

Said Faulk: “We didn’t get, ‘Hey, Jason Garrett, although you don’t have Romo, you’re still supposed to find a way to win football games.’ ”

When pressed for a reason why the local media would give Garrett a pass, Faulk replied, “I have no idea. [But] it’s the exact same reason why after Sunday’s [20-8 win over Giants], you guys threw softball questions and chuckled it up with Romo, and asked T.O. all the hard questions, and really got after him.”

Faulk indicated he watched the postgame news conferences on ESPN in amazement, as Romo was asked football-related questions such as where the team was headed.

“But for T.O., it was like y’all were pouring that lighter fluid out there,” said Faulk, “trying to get him to strike a match.”
I don't live in Dallas, but I think it's safe to say that Jason Garrett isn't exactly getting a "pass". I could be wrong though. Also, the notion that Romo got an easy question from Andrea Kremer, or anyone, is just wrong. In fact Romo was the first person to address the issue during the postgame interview. He may have just been joking, but if he wasn't, it seems really off base.

Dallas Cowboys' Jason Garrett gets ‘pass’ from local media, Marshall Faulk says (The Star-Telegram)

Marshall does have a point eventhough it sounds ignorant. Without Romo, Jason Garrett sucks but no one is saying that.

ahh Marshall, listen to the ticket in dallas, espn sucks down here. Don't base dallas opinion on the two enablers Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin, who by the way are responsible for all this crap. They started this whie at FSU and Miami respectively.

Romo did get the easier questions. It was pretty blatant. Faulk's not talking about Andrea Kremer - he's talking about the post game press conference with the local media. It was shown live on NFL Network after the game.

Maybe it's because TO has shown time and time again that he's an a-hole, while Romo (and presumably Garrett) are nice guys.

No, wait. It's because TO's black. That's it.

That Galloway on ESPN Radio 103.3 FM seems to be pretty hard on Romo whenever I tune in online. Then again, my only connection to the Metroplex is my role as a Mavs fan. I hate the Cowboys so I don't really care if they're mortified or not.
