Holding up the Lombardi Trophy. As in, being a Super Bowl Champion.
"This is a great kickoff to the 2013 NFL season,” Witten told the gathered crowd, via the Dallas Morning News. “And when I'm standing in New York some early February day, holding up that Lombardi Trophy with snow coming down on my face, I'll thank each and everyone of you here that allowed me to have Jason Witten Day.”
Witten isn’t the only one feeling confident going into training camp next month in Oxnard, California. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told reporters earlier this month that he felt this team was capable of a Super Bowl run.
