Jerry Concerned With Schedule, Not Kicking Situation



    Dallas Cowboys' owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Saturday that he is concerned with the team's 2010 schedule, and, fairly unsurprisingly, not with the team's kicking situation.

    There's fair reason to be concerned, at least with regard to the scheduling. Most of the Cowboys' schedule reads like a who's who of division contenders, and, according to ESPN, they combine to make Dallas's slate of regular season contests the  third most difficult in all of football.

    “I’m concerned about who we’re playing," Jones said, per, "our competition."

    To the concern of many around Dallas, Jones is happy as a clam--publicly, anyhow--with the situation at kicker, which is currently, more or less, David Buehler; the second-year USC-product served as the kick-off specialist in 2009, and is working with former Dallas place-kicker Chris Boniol on technique this off-season.

    Thus far, Buehler has impressed coaches, teammates and team officials--a large group that is headed by Jones, who, despite his current contentedness, admits that he occasionally has some questions.

    "I like what’s happening with Buehler," Jones said, per "I like the direction. Is that something I don’t think about? It is something I think about, but I like the way it’s going. Joe [DeCamillis], Wade [Phillips], we think he’s ahead of where we thought he’d be."
