For many fans, Sunday’s 17-16 loss was taken as a discouraging sign that, for all the personnel changes made by the team this offseason, this is just a different version of the same old, always underachieving, always frustrating Cowboys.
Defensive tackle Jason Hatcher strongly disagrees with the idea, though, saying he’s not worried about this team.
“Not at all,” Hatcher said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I’m very confident in our team this year. We’re a totally different team. Like I told them all early in the week, this is the best team I’ve ever been on, man. I’ve been here eight years. This is the best team I’ve been on.”
Hatcher, who registered a sack, six tackles and a quarterback hurry, said the difference in the game was pretty straightforward.
“They got two turnovers. We’ve got to get four,” he said. “So we couldn’t get the ball out tonight. We played great upfront and made some plays, made some clutch plays, got the ball back to the offense. But when it counted, we didn’t show up tonight. So we just got to get better.”
