ARLINGTON (105.3 THE FAN) – The perception is and has always been that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants all the credit.

That’s been at the center of the perceived decade-old dispute between he and Jimmy Johnson, who won two Super Bowls as head coach of the team in the early 90’s.

But is it true? Does Jerry crave the credit?

“No, I don’t think it is — at all,” said Jones with Shan & RJ on 105.3 The Fan. “The most important thing is to win the football games.”

Critics of Jones have long wanted the owner to surrender his general manager duties, something Jones has pledged never to do. And here’s why.

“During the times I have owned the team, the average team in the NFL has had 6 to 7 different general managers. They’ve had an average of  of 8 different coaches. I know there’s no such thing as an individual that has the answers. I think it comes together. I think we’ve got a good chance under the structure that we have for it to come together.”

Jerry says he takes “big issue” with those that believe he is bitter over not receiving credit for the team’s success in the early 90’s.

So if Jerry doesn’t want all the credit, where did that perception originate?

“Well it might have been the night that I bought the team and got up and said I would be in charge of  everything from socks to jocks, to the money, to the plays, to the selecting of the coaches — that I would be involved and have knowledge of everything.”
