One of the first moves that interim head coach Jason Garrett made when he took over the Cowboys was creating a dress code. Players are supposed to arrive at the stadium in dress clothes and a tie. It didn’t take long for someone to break that rule.
Starting running back Marion Barber showed up in jeans and an untucked shirt — not exactly the way to impress your new coach. Many of the Cowboys players are upset with Barber over his attire.
Something this simple is what has been the Cowboys problem all year. Certain guys don’t think the rules apply to them and they go about their own way. There has never been much team unity and Barber just went and alienated himself from a team trying to show their new disciplined identity.
Hopefully Garrett takes some sort of action and benches Barber for the game. It’s not like Barber has even been that productive.
