What’s a Cowboys’ offseason without very premature Super Bowl talk?
Executive vice president provided some of that last week when he said he believes the Cowboys once again have the “secret sauce” that leads teams to Super Bowl contention. Now, Jones says he wish he wouldn’t have made that remark, and that there are plenty of questions yet to be answered before Dallas discovers whether it has the sauce or not.
“It was a careless comment that quite candidly, I wish I could take back,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan this week, via the Dallas Morning News. “I was having a light moment with some of the [reporters] and I let that slip. At the end of the day, I do think when you look at teams that have success, there’s a certain chemistry. I think a little bit what I’m seeing from our team this year is that we have good chemistry.
“I think we’ve done some things here in the off-season that have improved us. I like what we’ve done with our move from the 3-4 to the 4-3. I think we’re doing some things on offense that really suit what Tony Romo is all about. I think the move with Jason [Garrett] being able to focus more on being a head coach full time and not having to do both, in terms of calling plays and being a head coach, I think all these things add up.
“Obviously we don’t have all the issues solved in terms of some injuries and things in our defensive line. We’ve tried to help ourselves on the offensive line, all the way up until yesterday. I think we’ve given ourselves a heck of a chance to compete, get in the playoffs and contend.”
