Vice-president Stephen Jones is admittedly frustrated with the Cowboys 5-6 record. But he has yet to give up on the season. He said reaching the playoffs is still the mindset at the Cowboys' Valley Ranch training complex.
He believes the Cowboys have just as good a chance as anybody else to get there.
"We are just a game out of the wildcard, two games out of the division lead," Jones said. "We are going to fight and play hard. We have played a lot of these good teams. I feel like on any given Sunday we can play with them."
Jones is basing his hopes on the Cowboys getting healthier and the breaks finally falling their way.
"It's frustrating we don't have a better record," Jones said. "But a lot of things come into play. We are going to continue to work hard. We are going to continue to get better as a team. At some point, I uspect some of the breaks will go our way. Usually, you hoping you get healthier. I think we got a chance to get some key guys back whether it is DeMarco Murray. He has a big chance to help our running game. Our offensive line has been banged up. Hopefully as guys get back healthy they get back to playing the positions that we wanted them to play. Those are the things that you look for. I think we can do that."
