Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones made headlines recently when he said, “We’re convinced we’ve got the secret sauce to put this thing back together again and win championships. We can always be better. We look for ways to be better. We do that both on the field and off the field.”
Even if you think Jones’ comments are ridiculous, you still have to respect the confidence he has in his team. Furthermore, what’s he supposed to say? You know, we really just don’t have the talent to compete right now… Of course he’s going to say the Cowboys can get back to winning championships. But the harsh reality is that America’s team is far from championship-caliber.
Don’t get me wrong, I think the Cowboys will be decent this year. They’ve got lots of talent on both sides of the ball, but just not enough to warrant any legitimate hype. When Jones used the term secret sauce, my first thought was that he better be talking about HGH. Other than that type of sauce, I don’t see what could propel this Dallas squad back to the playoffs.
All joking aside, the Jones’ better have a more quality plan in place then they’ve had for the last decade and a half. What they’ve been doing, hasn’t been working. Now with Tony Romo locked up for the foreseeable future, the team has to find a way to get better around him. If they flop again this year, a good place to start would be the head coaching position.
