Disregard the Dallas Cowboys' struggles. Owner Jerry Jones insists that his team can win the Super Bowl.

"We've got to have some wins to make sure we're in the hunt. But we are fresh off, I keep pointing it out, a world champion that won nine of 16 ballgames last year," Jones told 105.3 The Fan via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We know that you want your team as healthy and as in sync as it can be as we get on in to the end of the season. We know that we've played one division game and won it. We've got those guys, the Giants, coming back in here. We know that's going to be a big game for us.

"All of those things give us a chance to take a team that is evolving into -- if you look at the pluses against the Ravens -- evolving into a team that can be a team that can compete for the championship. Not next year, this year."

With the teams bunched up in the NFC East, Jones appears to be running out of patience if the Cowboys don't emerge from the pack.

"I'm not into everybody getting better, learning for years to come," Jones said. "It's this year."
