The Dallas Cowboys came out on fire in Week 8, easily downing the Los Angeles Rams 43-20. The victory showed what this team is capable of when it's firing on all cylinders, showing that Dallas has the talent to contend.
However, Tuesday's trade deadline looms over this squad as owner Jerry Jones considers acquiring any extra help. Following the Week 8 win, Jones had a big comments on his team's plans.
Jones told reporters “It doesn’t look like we’ll be doing anything" when asked about the deadline. This certainly follows his previous statements on the matter, as the 81-year-old is on the record as believing in the players currently on the roster.
Jones statement is sure to disappoint some fans. While Dallas has looked strong at times during its 5-2 start, there's been some weak spots that could use addressing. As a contender, the Cowboys should also be looking to bring in whatever top talent is available, instead of simply being content with their current group.
Perhaps this is Jones being a businessman and trying to send teams around the league a message that they're not offering enough. Regardless, no one expects the active owner to be truly quiet in the lead up to the deadline, even if no deals are ultimately reached.
