Jason Garrett focused on Bears, not referees

IRVING – As expected, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett didn't get into specific details when addressing the NFL's replacement officials on Wednesday.

Garrett said the Cowboys are "focused on the wrapping up of the Tampa game and focusing on the Chicago game."

"They'll do their job. They'll be fine," Garrett said of the replacement officials. "We got to do our jobs the best we can."

Asked if he thinks coaches are encouraging their teams' owners to get the issues resolved with the locked-out officials, Garrett declined to answer with anything other than that his team is preparing for the Chicago Bears.

"Prepare yourself for the opponent but don't focus on the opponent, focus on ourselves and being our best," Garrett said. "I think that applies to the officials, replacement officials, regular officials. That's what we focus on, playing and coaching to the best of our ability. It really has not been an issue for us."
