Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is deciding to be his own hype man heading in to the 2013-14 NFL season. After a few mix ups on the coaching staff, Jones says that he expects to see a better team this weekend whenever the Cowboys begin training camp.

“I think we’ve taken steps to improve our team,” Jones said, via Calvin Watkins of “We are a better team, no question in my mind, than we were at this same time last year. We’ve got a lot of work to do.”

While Jones is optimistic, it is important to remember that the Cowboys didn’t make many major moves this offseason with their roster. If the team that went 8-8 a year ago is going to improve, it will be because of maturity, chemistry, and the team’s new and improved coaching staff.

“We feel like we’ve got the right kind of guys on our staff and we feel like we got the right type of guys on our football team,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. “It’s time to go to work.”

Rookies and veterans report to the teams camp in Oxnard, California on Saturday, July 20, with the first practice coming the very next day.

Get excited, NFL fans. Football is just around the corner.
