Training camp begins Thursday, and some Dallas Cowboys players smell the urgency of the coming season. Jerry Jones has done his part by signing nearly every big-name player to a long-term deal, solidifying a dynasty if that is what this team wants to become. The talent is there. It will just take commitment.
But the biggest roadblock to success this coming season isn’t the play of Tony Romo or his love life; it isn’t team chemistry with Terrell Owens and Adam Jones playing on the same team; it isn’t an aging offensive line; and it isn’t a questionable secondary.
The chief roadblock to success is finishing games. Adding a dash of consistency to the Cowboys’ effort this coming season makes a recipe of success. Finishing the season strong will do wonders for winning a playoff game.
There will be nothing less Jerry Jones will accept because he invested so much into this team. If the Cowboys come out of the gates and win big against a good team, the Cleveland Browns, it won’t mean hardly as much if they close the season out with a win over the Eagles.
