Jerry Jones closes window to 'window' talk

OXNARD, Calif. – Jerry Jones is kind of like the Texas weather.

If you don’t like what he’s saying, just wait a few minutes. Or maybe a few weeks.

Jones created headlines this summer by saying that he thought the Cowboys’ championship window with this core could be closing soon. But he humorously brushed off a question on the subject during Sunday’s camp-opening press conference.

“First of all, I want to officially close the window to closing the window,” Jones said, poking a little fun at himself. “That was offseason talk and we’ll leave it right there. I do feel a sense of urgency though, but more in the framework of when we’re opening up against the Giants that we’ve got to do better.”

Coach Jason Garrett has never been much into window talk. It goes against all the things he emphasizes on a regular basis – focusing on the process, be great every day, etc.

As far as Garrett is concerned, the Cowboys are operating with a great sense of urgency while building a team that can sustain success.

“We talked about building a championship team,” Garrett said. “That’s what we’re in the midst of doing.”
