Jerry Jones Thinks Cowboys Have Talent To Compete For A Super Bowl

Jerry Jones is very optimistic about his Cowboy by saying that they have the talent to compete for a Super Bowl.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has always been an outspoken guy and the latest is that Jones honestly believes that the Cowboys have the players in place to make a Super Bowl run:

"I see the talent level being able to put us in a competitive situation for the Super Bowl," Jones said in a 90-plus-minute session with reporters on the team's luxury bus Friday afternoon from the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis. "I saw it at the start of that [2010] season and I see it with what we had last year, that there's a talent level that can compete for a Super Bowl."

Jones tells reporters during the interview session that he believes that just making the playoffs gives them a chance to compete for a Super Bowl, and he points out that during the past two years Green Bay Packers and New York Giants were Wild Card teams and won the Super Bowl.

Jones knows that the Cowboys need some help but he believes that through the draft and the $20 million in cap space should be enough help to fill the holes that they need to get better as a team. Jones also cites better coaching for a reason to be optimistic about the Cowboys, and that Jason Garrett will have a complete off season to work with for the first time in his sort tenure as head coach.

The Cowboys have gone 16 years without a Super Bowl which is the longest drought in franchise history.
