Jerry Jones Wants To 'Close The Window' Discussion About Cowboys Super Bowl Chances

The Dallas Cowboys begin training camp on Monday out in Oxnard, Calif., and owner Jerry Jones wants to put an end to the talk about the Cowboys chances of winning a Super Bowl are closing:

"I want to close the window to closing the window," Jones said in today's opening news conference of training camp. "That was off-season talk. We'll leave it right there."

Jones echoed coach Jason Garrett's mantra about believing the Cowboys are "building a championship team" based on off-season personnel moves. [...]

But Jones acknowledged the time to make a Super Bowl run is now, not later.

"I do feel a sense or urgency," Jones said. "But more in the framework that, when we open up against the Giants, we've got to do better. We've got to be tougher."

The talk about the Cowboys window closing to win a Super Bowl has been on of the main themes this offseason and has been mentioned in one way or another by Tony Romo, Jason Whitten, DeMarco Murray and DeMarcus Ware.

The window may not be closed, but there is an urgency to build a team in Dallas that is capable of winning a Super Bowl in the immediate future.
