CHAMPIONSHIP RUN: Jason Witten has no problem with Jerry Jones’ comments

IRVING, Texas — Earlier this week on KRLD-FM, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the Cowboys have a team to compete for a Super Bowl this year.

Today, Jason Garrett’s focus was Sunday’s opponent, Carolina, and he did not want to address Jones’ comments.

Tight end Jason Witten has no problem with Jones’ comments.

Yeah, every man in this room should believe that,” Witten said. “If you don’t, get out of here. But you have to go prove it every week. A lot of games we’ve done good things and a lot of things we have to improve on. Absolutely. Did the Giants think it at 7-7? That’s the way this league goes. I’m not saying that’s the formula for doing it. You have to still win games. Let’s get it corrected. We feel we have the men in this room who can do it. Now you have to go show it.”

Witten does not believe Jones is putting more pressure on the players.

“I think he’s trying to be optimistic,” Witten said. “I think he watches the tape and sees that we’re doing a lot of good things. I don’t think it’s more than that. I don’t think he’s trying to build us up or anything like that.”

TRUE BLUE SUNDAY: Dallas Cowboys will be sporting blue jerseys in Charlotte

TRUE BLUE SUNDAY - Dallas Cowboys will be sporting blue jerseys in Charlotte - The Boys Are Back blog

IRVING, Texas — Sometimes you never know what gets folks excited on Twitter. Today, it appeared to be the fact that the Dallas Cowboys will wear their blue jerseys Sunday in Carolina.

It will be the one and only time the Cowboys will be in blue this season and only the second time in the last three years. They wore the blues at New England last year and lost 20-16. They did not wear the blue jersey in 2010.

While some people pointed out the blue jersey curse, others wanted to know why the Cowboys don’t wear the blue jersey more.

At home, the Cowboys wear white as a nod to their tradition set by Tom Landry. Jerry Jones does not want to change that, nor should he.

On the road, the Cowboys are at the whim of the opponents. Since most teams wear their dark jerseys at home, the Cowboys wear their white jerseys.

The jersey selections have to be set by July so the equipment teams know the particulars well in advance.
