Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the Elf & Slater Show on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM that he believes his team will be much better in 2013.
“Obviously, we got our eyes on not only getting them healthy but keeping them healthy,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “We got some good ideas on that in terms of how we’re going to manage different players. I’ve said from the beginning, the best way we can improve upon our football team from last year is keep guys healthy. That had to be one of our toughest years in terms of the number of injuries, especially to really good football players. If we can really do a better job there then I like our chances of making some significant improvements on 8-8.”
While injuries didn’t help the Cowboys in 2012, teams have been able to overcome them in the past and win a Super Bowl. The Packers did it in 2010 and the Giants did it in 2011.
The Cowboys biggest problem is that they lack the nessasary leadership in their locker room to get them through the ups and downs of a season.
