Jerry Jones Keeping Title As Cowboys Owner & GM

DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – “I’ve made a lot of changes from year to year as time goes along, but frankly, I know that when we do not have the kind of success, when we don’t have expectations lived up to, the one that should get the most heat is the one that ultimately makes the decisions, period, with the Dallas Cowboys. And that’s me.” said Jerry Jones on 105.3 The Fan’s New School morning show Tuesday.

“The thing you’ve got to realize is that when you have an owner that is full-time as the owner, then you create a situation where you have as much turnover at GM as you do at the coaching level,” Jones said. “And I think that just deters from the mix.”

    Mr. Jones, PLEASE just go ‘way! You’ve interfered with any good coaching that took place, replaced good players, and kept some lousy ones. You might do a decent job being the decision-maker in some standard business corporation, but when it comes to sports – FOOTBALL – you fall short. You mean well, but you don’t have the natural sports-savvy when it comes to decision making. It is like you take 3 steps forward, but fall back one every single time something critical for the Cowboys comes up.
    I refuse to fully support the Cowboys and to even care, until I know that you have stepped aside like a gentleman, and allowed those who know sports make the sports decisions.
    Until then, I will patiently wait for some good turnover in the Cowboy’s ranks…beginning with you, Mr. Jones.

    Mr. Jones , if you were not the GM would you have kept the same GM if for 16 years only had 1 playoff win?

    Gone are the days of no salary cap when you could buy a championship team, trade Hershel Walker for 11 players and call yourself a genius for having more money than the others. Jerry runs his business to make money and he does. Unfortunately, now the salary cap makes you have to be wise in spending and that hasn’t happened. When star players have the owner/GM’s cell phone #, who actually has control? We lost some good coaches due to this mentality. As Barry Switzer best put it when asked about his coaching stint in Dallas, he replied, “I did my time”. So will many other coaches who choose to work under a GM with a failing record. Yes Jerry, we did like those 3 super bowls, but we understand how you bought them. Now fire your GM and find one that can handle the new era in salary cap. We’re $20 million over now and no playoffs.

    […] Jerry Jones refuses to call the Dallas Cowboys 2011 season a failure; he prefers disappointing because using the word failure would be a confession of guilt by the owner and general manager and there’s is no way Jones — or Jones’ elephant-like ego — would condone such an admission. […]
