Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted that before the season he didn't have Super Bowl aspirations. That was evident when he was sandbagging like crazy in preseason talks with season ticket holders and in his state of the team addresses.
It's funny what a 6-1 start and a 7-3 mark heading into a Week 11 bye will do those low expectations, though.
“We didn’t really think that possibly this year might be the year, but you sure can’t dismiss it at this particular point,” Jones told 105.3 FM. “It is great to be 7-3. We would’ve loved to have been 8-2 or better, but we’re not. But we have [Romo] healthy, we have a pretty healthy team on the field.
“Having said that, I think we’re going to have some fun here these next six ballgames.”
Jones referenced the 2007 season in the interview, which saw the Cowboys go 13-3 to earn a first-round bye before losing to the wild card Giants in their first postseason game before the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl.
Now, Jones thinks it might be his team's chance. It'd be nice if he'd keep it to himself.
