First off let me say I love Jerry Jones as the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, his love and commitment to win is evident in the way he speaks about the Dallas Cowboys, now with that said:
Since Jerry bought the Dallas Cowboys 20 years ago he has had six head coaches two of them seemingly had some control over personnel, the rest were just Jerry’s puppets. When Jimmie Johnson was the head coach we had some outstanding drafts taking Aikman, Emmitt and Maryland as his first round picks, which led us to 3 super bowls, but after Jerry’s ego wouldn’t allow Jimmie to have more power or take credit for the success. They parted ways and along came the puppets Switzer , Gailey , and Campo the drafts were horrible during these years taking players like Quincy Carter, Shante Carver, Dwayne Goodrich, David Lafleur and Sherman Williams with our first picks. If any general manager in football had drafts like these he would be long gone wouldn’t he? luckily in 2003 I thought Jerry was checking his ego finally when he hired Parcells who is one of the best talent evaluators in NFL history. Parcells drafts included most of the incredibly talented team you see on the field today including James, Ware, Barber, Newman, and of course signing Romo.
There are only two teams in football that the owners act like the GM the Cowboys and the Raiders. Luckily we had Parcells for three years or we would be right where the Raiders are, terrible. Jerry’s problem as a GM is that he has no eye for talent and that he always wants to make a big splash. The drafts between Johnson and Parcells were just horrible, then going after players like Deion, Eddie George, Chris Warren, Joey Galloway and most recently Pacman, T.O. and Roy Williams. Doesn’t this sound like someone who just wants a big splash rather than keeping, let’s say the two first rounder’s for Galloway and building a solid team? The examples are endless during the puppet years and that’s the reason we haven’t won number six. Right now we have the talent to win number six but that’s not going to last forever. Jerry please fire yourself as general manager.
