Oxnard, CA — Cowboys camp opened Sunday and with it go the high expectations that usually comes with the NFL's most valuable franchise. Coming off a disappointing 2012 season, head coach Jason Garrett and owner Jerry Jones told reporters at a pre-camp meeting Saturday they're excited about their prospects, despite missing the playoffs for three straight seasons.
"We like our team, we like our coaching staff. We have and I have great confidence in the head coach and the direction of our team. The facts are it's just time to get going and it's time to be doing the things that, at the end of the day, what has to count. That is being in as good as shape to open up with the Giants as we can be," said Jerry Jones.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett added, "Day one of training camp is a great day. It's a new beginning for really everybody. The 2013 version of the Dallas Cowboys is different from any collection we've ever had or ever will have. And we're excited about the opportunity in front of us. We all have visions and aspirations of being part of a Super Bowl. I think if you ask Head Coaches, Coaching staffs and players in thirty one other NFL cities, they'll say the same thing, and if they don't, they're probably in the wrong business. But what we're focused on is today, making day one great, we're excited about the opportunity to be here."
