DeMarcus Ware does windows, just like Jerry Jones

As much as they’ve talked about windows this offseason, you’d think Arthur Blank of Home Depot owned the Dallas Cowboys.

But it was Jerry Jones who initially suggested the window could be closing on his group of not-young stars, and now his best player agreed with him.

Pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware said that the time for the Cowboys to do something is now.

“I feel like from my standpoint, we’re a better team than we were last year, and it’s going to show on the field,” Ware said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “Jerry saying that the window’s closing, I’m with Jerry. The window can be closing. It closes every year.

“It just depends on if you’re going to walk through that door or not. I’m with Jerry on that.”

So now we’ve got windows and doors. All we need is Tony Romo to check in about the shingles and the metaphor will be officially stretched.

Ware said that the Cowboys are better positioned to do something by virtue of having OTAs and minicamps, unlike last year under first-year defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

“Guys are playing a lot more comfortable and a lot more aggressive,” Ware said.

If that’s the case, they may be ready to put something shiny in the House Jerry Built, and finally live up to the big offseason expectations.

  1. Lets not get too excited there boys, remember you do play in the NFC East. So in reality that window is already closed. Although it still has a nice view of the Lombard Trophy that resides in New York.

    All In…

  2. Team that talk too much don’t win. See the Jets and the 2011 Eagles. The champs usually don’t have drama or hype surrounding them in the offseason. The more the Cowboys talk about their widow and walking through doors or whatever, the less likely it is that they actually do it. I mean I hate the Giants but they had a quiet offseason. Playoff time was when they actually made noise.

  3. As long as a team has a superstar quarterback the window remains open. Now, whether Tony Romo fits that bill, well, that’s another story.

    The Giants had a bunch of drama going on before and starting the season. “Eli being Elite”, the rash of injuries in the offseason, losing to the Redskins, Coughlin on the hot seat, Osi complaining as usual, etc. I’m just not sure if you actually paid attention in the NFL last year.

  5. I feel like all this talking got started a little late this year for the cowboys, but nonetheless, here we go again. They aren’t consistent, they can play well but they will never play well enough long enough through a season and the playoffs. I feel another choke coming already. Talk themselves up in the summer about how much better than they actually are…

    Yep. They’ve won it 18 times, far more than any other NFCE team. Including two of the last five seasons. Same as the Giants.
