Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is currently in Mobile, Alabama coaching the North team in the 2016 Reese’s Senior Bowl. However, that didn’t stop the questions about next month’s Super Bowl matchup between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers from popping up.
Garrett was asked to share his thoughts on the big game on Tuesday night during a media session and he had nothing but praise for both teams.
“We played Carolina and they’re an outstanding football team. Great defense. Their quarterback is a dynamic player. They’ve played really, really well throughout the year,” Garrett noted.
“Denver is a great story as well. I love how they’ve played on defense and obviously Peyton Manning being the quarterback of that football team really raised their play. I think it’s a great story for the National Football “eague with two really worthy teams.”
One player in particular that Garrett is familiar with is Broncos defensive star DeMarcus Ware, who spent a majority of his career in Dallas before going on to take the Broncos defense to the next level.
As you would expect, Garrett is very happy for his former player and expects Ware to continue that level of consistency he’s shown throughout his time in the league when he takes the field in San Francisco for Super Bowl 50.
“DeMarcus has had such a good year for them,” Garrett said. “He came up so big in the game the other day and made a lot of impact plays late in the ballgame to impact the quarterback. That’s what he’s done throughout his entire career. I have a lot of admiration for him as a man and a player.”
Super Bowl 50 is set to take place on Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. ET.
