Former Cowboys’ fullback Daryl Johnston wasn’t a fan of the way his former team approached the 2010 season, and--as a 1-7 start to the season reflected--he was probably right to feel that way.
Dallas split camp between San Antonio and Oxnard, California, and played a five-game preseason schedule that began with the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. Johnston, a former teammate of new head coach Jason Garrett, believes that the team, or Garrett at least, learned from that experiment.
Now, he just has to sell Jerry Jones on operating in a wholly different manner.
"Jason's biggest thing is convincing Jerry why," Johnston said, per the Dallas Morning News. "All you have to do is convince him that this is the best thing for the team and Jerry is going to buy into it. I think Jason has already done that. I think Jason has already convinced him that this is very important to the success of the team.
"I tell people all the time that all Jerry wants to do is win. He may want to market his team and he may want to take everybody around and be high-profile. But, number one, he wants to win and he wants to win a championship."
