Jason Hatcher says Dallas Cowboys will be contenders

The Dallas Cowboys win over the New York Giants in week one exorcised a lot of their demons. They finally ended the Giants undefeated streak in their new stadium. The defense even had 6 turnovers in the game to boot. As quick as people were jumping on the bandwagon, they were quick to cool on the Cowboys following their week 2 loss to the Kansas City.

The same ole’ Cowboys you heard. This is still an 8-8 team people said.

Cowboys’ defensive lineman Jason Hatcher was remaining optimistic about the Cowboys’ season.

“I’m not worried about last year’s woes or whatever: 1-1 and then you go downhill,” Hatcher said, via the Dallas Morning News. “That will not happen. We’re going to be a contender when this is all said and done.”

It was a close loss, 17-16, in a road game against a what is looking like a playoff caliber team.

“You can’t think here you go again,” tight end Jason Witten said. “We worked hard and lost a game on the road. Lots of football left. We’ve got to get it turned around.”

The Cowboys do have a lot of football left, and considering the entire division lost on Sunday there isn’t a lot of reason to panic.
