Jones: We are becoming a power run team

Jerry Jones spoke during his regular Friday morning appearance on The Fan 105.3 FM.

Of interest was Jerry's theory on how the Cowboys are transitioning from a downfield passing team to more of a rushing, ball control offense, which will in turn help out QB Tony Romo.

Here's Jerry on the subject: "I think that the answer to that is yes, but I know Jason, as offensive coordinator and Wade as the head coach, really spoke to that during the offseason if you look back and I know first-hand that that was the kinds of things we were discussing during the offseason and that is really establish a running game. And we thought that could cut down on turnovers and I'm not just pointing the finger at interceptions. But we thought if we could establish that and really as we saw Martellus Bennett developing, and Martellus hasn't had the chance to be the factor I thought he would be coming out of training camp, but that's ahead of us because they're going to start really zeroing in on Witten, and with the combination of having those tight ends in there that really helps us in the running game, both of those guys can really block, then I think that is a sign of what we're emphasizing now. When they just are determined to stop that then it really ought to open it up for Romo."
