DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Cowboys season has been filled with ups and downs and owner Jerry Jones is ready to get things on the right track heading into the second half of the season. 

With a record of 3-4, Jones remains confident in his team's abilities but recognizes they have some work to do if they want to make a run at a playoff berth. 

“I’m more urgent,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. “Not that we shouldn’t start off the first kickoff in Carolina urgent but we’re more urgent because we dug a hole here and in order to really be where we want to be - which haven’t diminished – that being in the playoffs, then we’ve got to get pretty, pretty strong in our success here. We don’t have time here. We don’t have the room to wiggle here. I think that says a lot of the real things we’ve done over the last two weeks bringing in Cooper and the changes we made in the offensive line.”

Jones declined to go into specifics about the team's decision to fire offensive line coach Paul Alexander, which they did on Monday. He did add that the line's inconsistency can't be blamed on one person.

"We have a high standard," Jones said on Shan and RJ. "When we look at the strength of the team, we look at it as the offensive line. You're on the spot a little bit when you're either playing or coaching in that area because that's an area we want to be a symbol of what this team is about. I'd say after seven games it's fair we weren't getting the job done to the standard."

During the interview, Jones also defended Jason Garrett's decision to attend the World Series this past weekend.
