The questions that have hounded the Cowboys veterans this season centers around last season's disappointing finish.
Linebacker Bradie James has not been spared those questions. James is entering his sixth season with the team and has lead them in tackles three straight years averging 123 tackles per season. One of the team's true leaders, James said this is a new team with a new outlook.
"Last year with the Giants, it left a sour taste in our mouths," James said. "The thing is you can't dwell on the past. We can't dwell on us being 13-3 because we're not going to sneak up on anybody, everybody will be ready for us."
"This season will be totally different," James continued. "We'll have totally different challenges in playing different teams so it's up to us to just continue to build on what we did. Last year, we talked about, the big emphasis was on winning. But now the emphasis is on, we know how to win now, but it's all about winning at the right time."
