Jerry Jones knows that the degree to which the Dallas Cowboys upgraded their team this offseason will only be known when the 2012 season unfolds, but he’s confident that the moves made to address the offensive line and the secondary--the two most glaring areas of need in 2011--will give the team a better shot in the always-ultra-competitive NFC East.
“I think we’re in a better position to match up,” Jones told Mickey Spagnola, host of the show “Special Edition” on the team’s official website, via the Dallas Morning News. “Now, the game will tell, but if you look where we are size-wise in our secondary, if you look where we are size-wise--and hopefully talent-wise--in the offensive line, we’re matching up better.”
When asked what area he was worried about going into the 2012 season, Jones mentioned the interior of the offensive line--before saying he wasn’t really worried about it.
“In our interior, where we think we’ve got better size, I think we’ve got to look at not only who we have as our starters, but we’ve got to look at that backup, because they’re sure to get some action,” Jones said. “So I’m anxious to see how that plays out, but not worried about it. I think we’ve got a good chance to be as good in the interior as we would expect to be.”
