Jason Garrett understands helmet rule, waiting to see how officials call it

Jason Garrett said he understands the new helmet rule, but the Cowboys coach isn’t certain how officials will call it.
“They do a very good job of trying to explain what it is and why they want to do things a certain way.
There have been new rules that have gone in in the past, and there was an anxiety everybody had, the league level, coaches, players, what are they going to do?
And then we start playing games, and they call it a certain way, and everybody gets a better feel as we go.
I think going in they’ve done everything they can to explain it, and once we get into real life and start playing these games we’ll start to find out more.” Garrett agrees with new rule prohibiting the lowering of the helmet and initiating contact with the helmet.
“Ever since we were this high playing Pop Warner, we were told don’t put your head down, don’t spear a guy,” Garrett said.
“We’ve never lived in a world where that was what we wanted from our players.
“So we’re trying to get back to that.
And they do such a good job statistically and anecdotally and looking at these different things to make the game safer.
So it’s all well intended.
