08:04 AM ET 05.31 | Yes, Cowboys fans, there is urgency in Jerry Jones' world. [Jones] looks at his roster and knows many of his key players will be in their 30s this season. He also knows he'll soon turn 70. The clock is ticking. The Cowboys owner reiterated again Wednesday that he believes there is a sense of urgency in Dallas. His comments came a week after his quarterback, Tony Romo, said the team's window is not closing. "There is an urgency," Jones said. "It's my perception that decides when the windows are and where they are. With that in mind, I'm saying that we need to get out here, get down to business, get in some playoffs and get knocking on the door."

Maybe JJ has the 'Al Davis Clock' ticking in his head.

See? They can't even agree on whether or not the clock is ticking on their title hopes. There's always some silly issue in CowboyLand.

If the clock is winding down, maybe it's time to hire a real GM.
