Jason Witten has no problem with Jerry Jones' comments
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.
|ESPN NFL analyst Ed Werder joins Ben and Skin to talk about Jason Garrett's lack of progress through his notorious, repetitive "process." |
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.”
