We suppose the Cowboys season thus far could be considered a success in that the team is still in the hunt for the playoffs. But, beyond that, Dallas executive vice president Stephen Jones believes the 2013 season could be the beginning of a new and exciting era of Cowboys football.
Jones believes the difference in the team from last year to this--which begins with a sense of leadership throughout the locker room--was apparent from the very beginning.
“I go all the way back to training camp,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan last week, per the Dallas Morning News. “You take the Sean Lees and the Tony Romos and the Jason Wittens and Jason Hatchers, I really think they’ve taken leadership and really taken accountability for the direction of the team. More than all of those things, I think that Coach Jason Garrett has done a heck of a job of instilling a culture, taking accountability, really expecting to win (instead) of thinking the worst when things are not going our way. I just think he’s done a great job with that.
“I think we really have a foundation to build upon. We’ve got a lot of young players coming, a lot of young draft picks this year playing in their first year. I really think this is the beginning of something special.”
