Jason Garrett has remained the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys for almost a decade in part due to his ability to keep the team together. Garrett has typically been well-liked by his players. The Cowboys are rarely blown out and often come from behind – two traits of teams that are together and focused. It’s tough to do that when there’s a disconnect between the head coach and his players.
That could still be the case with the Cowboys, though there’s certainly reason to be concerned right now. Dallas fell to 3-3 on the season with a surprising loss to the New York Jets this afternoon.
It was one of the most-frustrating losses of the Jason Garrett era and it showed.
Video from late in the game showed some Cowboys players refusing to high-five an enthusiastic Garrett. They were trailing the Jets by one score at the time.
Cowboy players want no part of congrats from Jason Garrett. LOL! pic.twitter.com/N6bEvLAw3M

Hey, players get frustrated. And when you’re losing to the 0-4 Jets by eight points late in the game, you’re probably in no mood for a high-five.
Still, the Cowboys are going to need to stick together moving forward. Dallas is a disappointing 3-3, though the NFC East is very much in play. The Cowboys and the Eagles are tied for first place at the moment.
Dallas and Philadelphia are set to meet on Sunday night in Week 7.
