After the Week 4 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo called this current Dallas offense the most complete he’s ever been a part of. On Tuesday, owner and general manager Jerry Jones lavished some further praise on the unit, saying it has exceeded his own expectations.
“What you’re seeing is that offensive line has jelled, and parts of the offensive line that we don’t call the offensive line--blocking of the receivers, the backs as they take their blocking responsibilities,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via the team’s official website. “That’s jelling for us, so we’re ahead of my expectations last summer, offensively.”
Jones and co. publicly attempted to temper expectations during what was a relatively quiet offseason, and he says that was by design.
“Well, we were downplaying the expectations for the reasons--look at we were trying to do to build that defense--and we really hadn’t seen Martin, for instance, our draft pick, in the summer. Even into training camp we really hadn’t seen him--what he could do, how he’s evolving,” Jones said. “We’d seen everybody else on the offensive line ... We knew what those guys are. But there were some parts we hadn’t seen, and so I think that’s the play-down.”
