Just about anyone would agree that, at 10-4 midway through the month of December, the Dallas Cowboys have exceeded expectations in 2014. But owner and general manager believes it would be premature to declare the year a success at this point.
“It’s difficult for me to admit that at this time,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “We have a team that’s good enough to not only be in the playoffs, but in my mind, advance in the playoffs. And now that we know that, now that we’ve seen it evolve into that, then I do want to see what it could do in the tournament.
“And I’m pretty positive about how we’re playing and if we can continue to potentially get a little better, which I think that game in Philadelphia will make us better. And if we continue to have those types of experiences and minimize the health issues, the injury issues, then I’m not ready to say this is a good season no matter what.”
The Cowboys are currently in first place in the NFC east, but they still have work to do. They’ll face the Colts at AT&T Stadium on Sunday before finishing the season against the Redskins at FedEx Field in Landover, MD--and if they finish with the same record as the Eagles, Dallas will miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season.
