I have the same feeling that I had as an athlete. We're just hoping we can be competitive. I'm very much committed to making sure this works. . . . If you put the right people in the right places, miracles can happen.
I don't want to be complaining. Paul Zimmerman (a veteran writer) has mentioned that he thought there was a bias, but I don't want to say that because it can work against you and make it sound like these guys are whiners.
I hate to admit that. I want to win every race, but I know that's not possible. To be in the top 25 is realistic if we have any luck this year. But anything to be in the chase or something like that is very unrealistic.
I'm going to be as excited watching Car 96 as I was when I was playing. When [original Cowboys owner] Clint Murchison came into the locker room, he was all excited when we won a game and everything else. I guess that's going to be me. It's a different deal.
