Jason Witten: Cowboys "Got To Execute Better"

The Dallas Cowboys have arrived in Oxnard, California for training camp. Their camp starts a little earlier then other NFL teams because of the Hall of Fame game. And Jason

“It really isn’t worth saying,” Witten said, via ESPNDallas.com. “I think it’s simply you’ve got to execute better. It’s not the sound bite it probably was before, but I really think you find yourself in the same situation and we weren’t able to win those games when we needed to. Focus on playing better in games, controlling games, being a better football team across the board.

“I think the details of what allows you to win games is what we focused on all offseason and hopefully it carries over to camp.”

First up for the Cowboys, conditioning tests Saturday and their first on-field practice Sunday.

“I do think we’ve got a core group of guys that work hard and play well together and are some of the best at what they do, but that doesn’t mean anything different,” Witten said. “You’ve got to put the work in. I’m excited to get started, and obviously we’ve got a long way to go. People always say, though, it’s the journey, not the destination. I’m a firm believer in that.”

“Going into my 11th one,” he said, “I’m excited to see where our team can take us and this is why you play — to get the opportunity to go to camp and put a team together and make a run at it. It’s the ultimate challenge to try to compete for a Super Bowl and we’ll see where we’re at.”
