This week, Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said that despite the Cowboys’ 1-1 record, and the fact that they sure looked like the same old Cowboys in their 17-16 loss to the Chiefs, this team is very different from last year. Hatcher’s boss, Dallas owner and general manager Jerry Jones, agrees with him on this point.
“If you look at personnel, you’re tied in to what we’re basically doing offensively, I think we’re not the same team we were last year,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Jones went on to say that not all of the changes on offense have been seen by fans just yet. But they’re a-coming.
“You’re going to see more play-action passes. You haven’t seen it, but you’re going to see more,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “You’re going to see more zone blocking. You’re going to see emphasizing tight ends more. The other thing is that I think we all realize that with Terrance Williams as well as Harris out there at the third receiver, Miles is healthier than he’s been the last couple of years, you see what Dez can do. And we certainly want to take advantage of the combination of our receiving tight ends, our receivers, and so, you know, if you look at personnel, you’re tied in to what we’re basically doing offensively, I think we’re not the same team we were last year.”
