"I can tell you firsthand that he's got some qualities of organization. He's got some qualities of leadership. He's very smart. All of those things are not necessarily different - they're manifested differently in Jason - but I've certainly known him now for many years and know that he's got some qualities that can get us where we want to go." - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on new head coach Jason Garrett.
"So Jason is being asked to change a culture in five days with a team that knows they are out of the playoffs at 1-7. To me, it's unfair to evaluate anyone in that role. The head coach needs to be able to implement a training schedule, conditioning programs and set the general tone, and that can't be done in the middle of the season. There's always a chance he does it, but this is a monumental effort, and I don't think it's fair to evaluate him as a head coach based off of it. I think he's a great head coaching prospect." - former Cowboys QB Troy Aikman, who was a teammate of Garrett's and will be providing color of today's game on FOX.
"Very organized. Very detailed. He laid out the game plan and was clear with where we're going." - Cowboys' All-Pro TE Jason Witten on Garrett.
"I've had the opportunity to meet Jason on a number of occasions. I'm always very, very impressed with him as a young man and the way he conducted himself. I knew his dad and the family and I always thought highly of them. I think Jason is in a position where he's worked with Wade, and Wade has helped him to develop. I think he'll do a fine job." - Giants head coach Tom Coughlin on Garrett.
"What we need to do is focus on being great today. Put good days together. Focus on the process and not so much on the results and if we do things the right way, hopefully the habits will develop and the results that we all desire will come." - Cowboys' new head coach Jason Garrett on today's game.
