Jerry Jones is pleased with the way his division-leading Dallas Cowboys are playing, but he’s even more pleased at the team’s prospects for improvement as the season moves forward.
Dallas has won its last four games, while the rival New York Giants have gone on a three-game skid. The Giants will play the undefeated Packers next week, while Dallas heads to Arizona for a match-up with the Cardinals, which means there’s a good chance that, when the two teams meet for the first time this season, New York will be two games back of Dallas in the standings.
“We’ve put ourselves in position to compete,” Jones said today on 105.3 The Fan, via ESPN Dallas. “Now, how is the team playing? I really like the way the team is playing.”
Jones said recently that he wanted to see some big wins from his team, after eeking out victories against Washington (by 3) and Miami (by 1)--he’ll take the wins and the 7-4 record, of course, but he expanded on his comments Tuesday, saying he sees room for improvement in the Cowboys.
“The bottom line is that our team is playing well in critical areas and we’ve got improvement in sight,” Jones said. “We can play better in the secondary, we can have less penalties, we can do the kinds of things this time of the year that can help us be a better team.
“Improvement is the word. I feel good about our improvement potential.”
