The Cowboys had high expectations entering the season until Tony Romo was injured in the preseason. Nobody expected them to be 3-1 at this point, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.
“I didn’t expect it,” owner Jerry Jones conceded after the Cowboys beat San Francisco for their third consecutive victory. “I really didn’t expect it.”
“We’ve got a bunch of young guys out there,” Jones said. “We know that we have some guys who will be coming back, but now to some degree we know we can win if they’re not back on time.
“This is a competitive league. I didn’t expect to do it without Dez, without our left tackle, without key players like Scandrick. It says a lot about our depth. It says a lot about Jason [Garrett] and our coaching.
“I’m really proud of those guys. They are doing a really good job. They are not looking back. They are lining up with literally who we have at game time. We warm them up out there. If they can go or if they can’t, we find out at warmup. That’s who is going to play.”
