Garrett: Snaps a matter of deciphering noise

IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys have asked the NFL to look into the snap simulation performed by Washington’s defensive line on Monday night that led to several early shotgun snaps from center Phil Costa, but coach Jason Garrett is not waiting for a reply.
“We need to be able to handle the situation and we’ll do a better job of that going forward,” Garrett said. “A lot of times there’s noise at the line of scrimmage and we just need to be able to decipher what’s our noise and what’s their noise. The NFL understands what’s going on and they’re trying to address it and handle it the right way, but we’ve not had much communication with them about it.”
Costa took responsibility for the snaps after the game and had a conversation recently with former center Andre Gurode.
“It was cool,” Costa said. “He’s a good dude.”
