Jason Garrett not focused on Jerry Jones' title talk
"All of those things give us a chance to take a team that is, if you look at the pluses (Sunday), evolving into a team that can compete for the championship," Jones said on KRLD-FM on Tuesday morning. "Not next year, this year."
On Wednesday morning, coach Jason Garrett said his team can build on some of the positives of that loss, but stopped short of saying a title is forthcoming.
"We're not real focused on that right now," Garrett said. "We're focused on meeting well on Wednesday and preparing for Carolina on Sunday. So that's where our emphasis is as players and coaches."
Garrett was also asked if Jones' Super Bowl talk added pressure to his team.
"Again, we're not focused on that," Garrett said. "We think Jerry Jones is an outstanding owner and we appreciate everything he does for our football team, but our focus is on practicing well today."
