On Thursday, Cowboys’ owner and general manager Jerry Jones expressed a sense of urgency moving into the team’s week two match-up with the 49ers in San Francisco, in hopes of avoiding another 0-2 start. Dallas started 0-2 last season, after all, and we saw how that turned out.
So Jones’ feeling of urgency is understandable. And apparently, it has spread through the Cowboys’ locker room this week.
"Obviously we want to get off to a good start, especially last year when we learned firsthand what that's about," Witten said, per the Dallas Morning News. "The urgency is there. We have good urgency and this team is sticking together and we seem like we've bounced back good. Like Tony [Romo] said yesterday, I don't think the story is written yet. We can control it and we have to do something about it."
After the week one loss to the Jets, Dallas does have a somewhat easier road over the next few weeks, beginning this Sunday in San Francisco. The Cowboys will face the Redskins on Monday Night Football in week three, before welcoming in the Lions in the week before the bye. After the bye, Dallas will face New England in a match-up that we’d rather not think too much about right now.
