Jimmy Johnson: Dallas Cowboys are in Super Bowl picture

By ANTHONY ANDRO / Special Contributor to The Dallas Morning News

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson believes the team has a shot to play in the Super Bowl it will be hosting next year.

"They made progress," Johnson said. "I don't think they're that far away. They are in the mix when you pick the better teams for next year."

Johnson, a football analyst for Fox who was at the Daytona 500, thinks the Cowboys still need game-breaking threats, including a quality wide receiver opposite Miles Austin.

"With Roy Williams, the jury is still out. But I'm beginning to believe maybe he's not the guy," he said.
