The Dallas Cowboys have been a talkative bunch lately as the start of the regular season draws near. Last week, executive vice president Stephen Jones said the Cowboys have the "secret sauce" to start winning championships again. Quarterback Tony Romo said on Monday that he has discovered "something special" with a change in his throwing mechanics. On Tuesday, head coach Jason Garrett said that wide receiver Miles Austin looks like his old self, according to ESPN Dallas. Austin dealt with hamstring issues the past two seasons. Despite the injury, Austin played in all 16 games in 2012 and caught 66 passes for 943 yards and six touchdowns. Now that Austin is healthy, Garret expects a lot more production out of the fifth-year pro. "We are all very proud of how Miles played last year because he wasn't himself," Garrett told ESPN Dallas. "He has a very productive year for us playing opposite Dez and opposite Witt in our passing game, and did a lot of good things for us, but he seems like he’s back to what we've seen in the past. He has quickness. He has explosiveness.”  Austin's return to old form is certainly promising news for the Cowboys. If the wide receiver can bring the explosiveness he once had back to the field, and the injury plagued offensive line can provide Romo with enough time to deliver the football, stopping the Cowboys offense could be a very tall order for opposing defenses.
