    OXNARD, Calif. -- Jerry Jones is addressing the most famous of his offseason comments. You know the one. In May, the Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager told NFL Network's Kim Jones that the window is closing for his team to win a championship.

    In explaining why he said it, Jones makes it clear: The time for talking about the window of opportunity for this particular crop of Cowboys is over. That served its purpose, he thinks, in underscoring the importance of the 2012 season back in the spring. Now that the pads are on, though, added motivation shouldn't be needed.

    "The main thing here is it isn't about five years from now, four years from now. It's about this year," Jones said Thursday, with the Oxnard phase of Cowboys training camp having wrapped up minutes earlier. "That's the way I addressed the personnel, those were now decisions. (Signing free agent Brandon) Carr's a now decision. For that matter, (trading up to draft Morris) Claiborne was a now decision. Certainly, both those players hopefully have long careers here. Still, it's what they can do now. That was an expression about now and urgency. But now that we're at camp, I'm closing the door to window closing."

    The guy is amazing - every... single... year.... it's the same thing.

    And it's like it catches him by surprise - every... single... year....

    Just do like Jerry.....stick your head in the sand, wave your foam finger and pretend that marginally talented players will somehow morph into NFL caliber players.

    It's what gets me by.

    That and hard liquor.
