Dallas Cowboys Receiver Dwayne Harris is Confident in His Team & Tony Romo
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dwayne Harris joined Jeff Thurn on Thursday’s edition of Overtime.
Harris (@D_Harris17) played in 13 games and caught nine receptions for 80 yards and two touchdowns in 2013.
Despite finishing 8-8 and missing the playoffs, how would Harris describe last season?
“As I think it was, it wasn’t as you wanted to be. We expected before to the season to make it to the playoffs and then make it to the Super Bowl, but obviously that didn’t happen. We had a lot of injuries. A lot of people went down. A lot of things happened that we couldn’t get to that goal.”
Has this offseason been more motivating after a disappointing season a year ago?
“Of course. A lot of guys on my team definitely want to win a Super Bowl. We have a lot of guys who I think have been playing for a long time and haven’t gotten a Super Bowl. So, I think going into this season, everybody is motivated this year.”
What are the expectations surrounding the Cowboys in 2014? Do they feel like they can win a Super Bowl?
“Yeah, we definitely feel like we are a Super Bowl contending team. We have the talent to compete with anybody in the league. So, of course why not?”
Despite all the criticism Tony Romo gets, do the Cowboys believe he is the leader of the team?
“Um, of course. Tony’s a good quarterback. Definitely one of the top quarterbacks in the league. The numbers speak for itself. You know, Tony goes through a lot of stuff. He had the back injury last year, and the year before that, it was something else. He played through everything. A lot of people don’t know how much he goes through and how hard it really is. I feel confident in Tony as much as my team does.”
What kind of teammate is Dez Bryant like?
“Ah man, Dez is a great teammate. Great to be around. He’s always joking. He loves the game of football and it’s always a good time being around him in the locker room or wherever we are at. He’s a great guy.”
