Undefeated? Too Early for That Talk

Owner Jerry Jones said don't worry about his high-flying Cowboys going undefeated this year

Owner Jerry Jones said don't worry about his high-flying Cowboys going undefeated this year because it ain't happening.

At 3-0, the Cowboys are considered the best team in the NFC. But Jones said they are not going to duplicate the Patriots of last season.

He said the schedule is too tough, especially with the Cowboys playing in the NFC East, the league's best division.

"I don't see that," Jones said. "I really don't see that. I think that was almost impossible to make it through 16 games.

"I see the road is too rough. The East is too tough. We've got five more games in the East and then we got Pittsburgh on road. I don't see that. That is nothing I won't say dare to think about. But I just don't see that happening."

Jones doesn't deny things have come together nicely for the Cowboys.

He lauds the play of veteran newcomers like Zach Thomas and Adam Jones to go along with the return of 13 Pro Bowlers from last year's 13-3 team. He also says the team has been boosted by the best rookie impact class he has seen since buying the Cowboys in 1989.

"We are getting maybe the best rookie contribution right off the bat that we've had," Jones said. "That is not average for us. When you figure the rookie class contributing like it is then it's really coming together."
