IRVING, Texas -- Earlier this week on KRLD-FM, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the Cowboys have a team to compete for a Super Bowl this year.
On Wednesday, Jason Garrett’s focus was Sunday’s opponent, Carolina, and he did not want to address Jones’ comments.
Tight end Jason Witten has no problem with Jones’ comments.
“Yeah, every man in this room should believe that,” Witten said. “If you don’t, get out of here. But you have to go prove it every week. A lot of games we’ve done good things and a lot of things we have to improve on. Absolutely. Did the Giants think it at 7-7? That’s the way this league goes. I’m not saying that’s the formula for doing it. You have to still win games. Let’s get it corrected. We feel we have the men in this room who can do it. Now you have to go show it.”
Witten does not believe Jones is putting more pressure on the players.
“I think he’s trying to be optimistic,” Witten said. “I think he watches the tape and sees that we’re doing a lot of good things. I don’t think it’s more than that. I don’t think he’s trying to build us up or anything like that.”
