Jason Witten says the Dallas Cowboys have to start over and do it all over again in 2015.
The Dallas Cowboys finished the 2014 season with a league best 12-4 record. Still they played in the Wild Card round, getting the win before being eliminated in controversial fashion by the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round.
The Cowboys are hoping to build upon the 2014 season into 2015, but tight end Jason Witten wanted to remind everyone that they have to start over and it won’t be easy.
“I think more so now than ever before,” Witten said, “I think we have an identity in which how we play. And I think that’s something that you feel like you’re building and can build upon. Coach [Jason] Garrett did a great job of kind of enforcing that, kind of laying out that as a blueprint week in, week out since April of what’s going to allow us to have success. Having said that, you start over. No team’s the same, and so you have to build that again. I think it was good for us to taste that. It was good for guys to get back there.
“But I don’t think that says next year just roll the ball out and we’re going to do it again. No, you’ve got to do it all over again. I do think we’re good at the right positions that will allow us to have a chance to be successful.”
He isn’t wrong. They can’t count on success in 2015 because of a successful 2014. They certainly have a blueprint for success and look like they’ll be contenders going forward.
