VALLEY RANCH - The Cowboys are off to their hottest start in seven years and you couldn't blame them for smiling a bit. But are these ‘Boys content?
Well, earlier this week, Jerry Jones said the team should stop and “smell the roses just a little bit.”
If that’s the mentality of the team’s owner, it certainly hasn't trickled down to the locker room.
“Nobody’s smelling the roses, man,” said wide receiver Dez Bryant. “We all know in this locker room that we haven’t done nothing. We haven’t achieved nothing.”
“[We’re] not even halfway through the season, we haven’t played any division games,” said DeMarco Murray, the NFL’s leading rusher. “So the past is the past, we’re just concentrating on this next game, taking it one game at a time.”
You can’t blame fans for worrying about how this team might handle success.
“I think it starts with the preparation, that’s been going for a long time,” said veteran tight end Jason Witten. “I think I said it a while back, but our team’s evolved to this.”
With the Giants in town this Sunday, the team will get their first crack at a division foe, and a chance to keep proving that change has come to Dallas.
