The long seven month break from football is officially over. Yesterday Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett led a press conference which launched the season. Perhaps guilty in the past of talking the talk before walking the walk, both Jones and Garrett cautiously avoided the term Super Bowl. Jones remarked;
“There are three or four things that we talked about last year that we’re not going to talk about.”
Pundits and non Cowboys fans continue to announce to the world how terrible the Cowboys defense was last year. As generous as it is for them to continue to point this out to anyone who will listen, it didn’t manage to pass Cowboys fans by. In fact, for the first time in several years the majority of fans seem to be on the same page. This is not a team packed with Pro Bowlers. Gone are the likes of Miles Austin and DeMarcus Ware- the men who were meant to have marched the Cowboys to Super Bowl glory alongside quarterback Tony Romo. Now we simply have a group of players who must improve on their previous season. We’ve coaches who must work with their players strengths, rather than overlooking their weaknesses. As many a school report states, the Dallas Cowboys must do better.
