Witten notices one thing about Cowboys' workouts so far -- it's all business

The Cowboys began the voluntary part of the offseason program this week, and tight end Jason Witten noticed something.

“There is not a lot of talk,” he said.

The Cowboys are head-down and focused on getting ready for the season, he said.

“Just action. We know that is what it takes,” he said Wednesday at a promotional appearance at a Dunkin Donuts. “We have got to prove it. Nobody is going to give you anything. For a lot of us, we know that time is now. It’s simply that you’ve got to put the work in and see what happens when the season gets here.”

The season gets here Sept. 5 when the Cowboys open against the New York Giants.

Witten said that game is one reason the Cowboys have showed up in large numbers to get personal work in, even before the offseason program began.

“Playing the Giants up there and then seeing them go and do what they did, you have to be your best at key times,” he said. “The San Francisco-Giants game could have gone either way. The Ravens-Patriots game could have gone either way. You can’t say you are close. You’ve got to go do it and prove it and make those key plays in key situations that allow you to win.

“We had too many that went the other way.”

I don't buy it. As long and player coddler Jones is there, the Dallas football team will stink.

Good. It sounds like they are officially 'GETTING IT'.

If the players on defense worked as hard as Witten - they would not be collapsing then quitting in the 4th qtr

ITS ALL BUSINESS Since Marty B is gone

What a BREATH of Fresh Air

FOCUS - WORK ETHIC and Execution can finally be the mantra at Valley Ranch

So I guess now Jason Witten is the team's spokesman with all the comments coming from him. Which begs the question...Where is our leader..Romo?

Lately it appears that Jason Witten, through his comments and mic time, may be taking command of this team and may turn out to be the true leader of the Dallas Cowboys. And what better figure than he?
