Cowboys tight end Jason Witten thinks he’s on a team that has the potential to win a Super Bowl and do it right now, and he says they simply can’t allow themselves to fall short of that.
“It goes fast and I will be damned if I let this opportunity slip away and not come away with a championship,” Witten said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It has been a heck of a run. But it’s time we grab it. That goes for all of us, the core group of us. That is what coach [Jason] Garrett has talked about. This group is trying to do it.”
Witten is one of the many people in Dallas who has talked this season about how Tony Romo has the ability to lead the Cowboys to the title, and how the Cowboys have to win it all now, before their window closes. But Witten also realizes it’s about more than just exuding confidence with words.
“Our actions have to speak louder than our words. None of y’all are believing it. Why should you be?” Witten said. “The approach we are taking is if we are going to be the team we think we can we have to go show it. What a great opportunity we got coming up September 5. So that’s the focus of this team.”
If the Cowboys’ focus is on their September 5 meeting with the Giants, that’s just where owner Jerry Jones wants it. And a win in the season opener would be a strong sign that the Cowboys don’t intend to miss their opportunity this year.
