The Dallas Cowboys won the NFC East last season before bowing out in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
The 2019 offseason has been all about taking the next step.
"Everything we were about was improving from where we were this year," Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "There is no reason. There is no tangible reason we shouldn't be expected to be better than we were last year."
It should be mentioned that no team has won back-to-back NFC East titles in more than a decade -- the Philadelphia Eagles won it four years straight from 2001-2004.
"I think we have (made improvements) coaching wise," Jones said. "We are going to do that scheme-wise. We are going to have real scheme changes on offense. That is going to improve us. I don't mean to be trite. We are going to make a big effort to be better offensively. We are going to try to challenge the defense more. We are going to try to expand our options."
Of course, everything in the NFL always looks bright and sunny in May. We'll revisit once a gloomy fall casts its pall on the season.
