The Cowboys are 2-3 and have lost their last two games. But owner Jerry Jones is more confident than ever that his team can make a title run this season because how they played in last Sunday’s 31-29 loss to the Ravens.
Jones said it’s not about making it moral victory as he is disappointed in the loss. But he did see positives things that the Cowboys can build on.
“It’s terribly disappointing. But we played physically. We did things that we can win with in the future,” Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM 105.3 The Fan. “We’re 2-3, so that’s five games into a 16-game season. We don’t have time to have a bad time here. We’ve got to have some wins to make sure we’re in the hunt. But we are fresh off, I keep pointing it out, a world champion that won nine of 16 ballgames last year.
“We know that you want your team as healthy and as in sync as it can be as we get on in to the end of the season. We know that we’ve played one division game and won it. We’ve got those guys, the Giants, coming back in here. We know that’s going to be a big game for us. All of those things give us a chance to take a team that is evolving into — if you look at the pluses yesterday — evolving into a team that can be a team that can compete for the championship. Not next year, this year.”
Jones reiterated that he meant this year not next year in the future.
“Let me emphasize that,” Jones said. “I’m not into everybody getting better, learning for years to come. It’s this year.”
