Jones: Cowboys have “secret sauce” to win

The Cowboys haven’t won a Super Bowl since the 1995 season, and they’ve only won two playoff games since then.

But, bless their hearts, they’re still thinking big.

We’re convinced we’ve got the secret sauce to put this thing back together again and win championships,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said, via Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News. “We can always be better. We look for ways to be better. We do that both on the field and off the field.”

Of course, the Cowboys are riddled with injuries to both lines, and haven’t shown any indication their offensive line is settled or any better than it was last year. But Jones thinks this team can still break the three-year skid of non-winning seasons.

“We certainly expect it to be,” he said. “Our commitment when we started was no more 8-8s. I think we’ve got good personnel. I think we’ve got a great staff. I think we can do that. We need to stay healthy. We need to stay focused. We need to get better every day. And I think we’ll be better than 8-8.”

Whether the Cowboys are good or not, the sense of grandeur is impressive, even though they didn’t have the kind of salary cap room to improve the team in many tangible ways.
