The Dallas Cowboys have finished 8-8 the past two seasons, but that didn’t stop the teams vice president Stephen Jones from saying that he thinks his team “can compete for a championship right now.” “We really feel like we have a team that can compete for a championship,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said. Jones thinks the NFL landscape allows any competitive team to feel like they have a shot. “The last three teams that won championships barely got into the playoffs and did something about it,” Jones said. “You’re probably not being realistic if you don’t think things have changed in the last 10 years. There’s probably a lot of people who feel they have a chance to win a championship based on the level playing field and how the cap has affected the game. We feel like we have an opportunity to compete for a championship.” I think any shot of championship hopes will be determined by how well the defense adjusts to a 4-3 defense, and their ability to stop offenses and cause turnovers.
