If you’ve ever seen a Jerry Jones press conference, you’ll know that he freely speaks his mind and regularly says things that are bold, perplexing or both. If you’ve ever seen a Jason Garrett news conference, you’ll know that the Cowboys (4-9) coach usually seems to stay calm and collected, no matter the circumstances.

"Well, Jason is a smart guy," Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan’s Shan and RJ show [KRLD-FM]. "He knows that if it’s a sideline, he knows that those cameras are zeroed in on him. He’s not about to fall where he is conscious, and he’s conscious of everything out there, make no mistake about it.

"And you see very few redheads that aren’t about to blow up inside when somebody is not doing right. And, so, it’s all there. It’s all there in a big way. And he will bite. You know the old adage, I don’t know if he’s going to get it done or not. Well, I’ve seen him bite as a puppy, and if they’ll do that, they’ll bite as a dog. He’ll bite."

So there you have it. Jason Garrett is basically a $5-million-a-year, redheaded coaching dog who is just stewing inside, liable to metaphorically rip into some flesh when he can no longer bottle the emotion. Making Jones the white-haired dog catcher.
