On NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning," NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport relayed a story about Cowboys defensive lineman Jason Hatcher getting after Tony Romo in practice this week after the quarterback audibled away from a run play, only to throw a pick six.
Rapoport reported there is an undercurrent of frustration in the Cowboys' locker room, especially on the defensive side of the ball, due to the number of times Romo has audibled away from the run.
Later in a team meeting, Hatcher called out all his teammates -- including Romo -- according to Rapoport. Hatcher told teammates that everyone needed to do their jobs with a sense of urgency.
"You want your leaders to lead," Garrett told Silver. "Jason's been a good player here for awhile, and it's good for people like him to speak up. It was all positive. He didn't call anybody out. He just talked about a sense of urgency and what we all need to accomplish as a team."
Another Cowboys source told Silver that the frustration wasn't so much with Romo's audibles. The main concern was that Romo gets a bit "pass-heavy" when running the no-huddle offense. But that is the case with "any quarterback anywhere," the source said.
"I wasnât getting on Romo," Hatcher told reporters. "Heâs the best quarterback in the league."
