The Cowboys Jerry Jones is the most famous Owner in all sports.  He owns the most recognized brand in the NFL and recently build a monument of a stadium in Texas. The only problem is that he's also the GM.  The Cowboys haven't made a playoff run this century and they struggled to find the right coach.  Jerry brings a new coach in every few years and ends up running them out of town.  The only reason Garrett still has a job is because Jerry Jones knows he can push him around and keep active in the coaching decisions. The Cowboys cannot win a Super Bowl with Jerry Jones as GM.  They also can't land a big time coach like John Gruden with Jerry this active. Here's a look at my pre-combine mock draft. Round 1 1 Chiefs Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M 2 Jaguars Jarvis Jones, DE, Georgia 3 Raiders Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M 4 Eagles DeMarcus Milliner, CB, Alabama 5 Lions Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State 6 Browns Barkevious Mingo, DE...

  • Think we could draft Jimmy Johnson from Miami/Keys Boating Club in the second round? I mean Jerry spent 1B on a stupid playpen, what's another 80M 4 yr contract on a leader.
  • The only way to change the direction of the team is for the fans to stop giving Jerry Jones their money.If fans would stop buying tickets. luxury boxes and swag, Jerry would take notice. Theres one thing that Jerry loves more than media attention and its his money.
  • Jerry is nothing more than a vain old man who thinks he knows football because he played at Arkansas. Living in the past, control freak, ego bigger than the Grand Canyon. Jerry, it is not like oil and gas. You are a great marketeer but a total disaster at being a general manager. But then you do know a lot about jock straps, but not about players or coaches for that matter. Our best hope is that your son comes to his senses and sells the team after you are gone. Stephen is a LOT smarter than you.

Garrett tells truth about short-sighted approach

Someone stop the presses, if this were a newspaper. A member of the Dallas Cowboys organization has told the truth. No, I'm serious.

Tony Romo Is Cowboys’ Best Option at Quarterback Right Now, But Extension Would Be Bad Move for Franchise

The Dallas Cowboys haven’t made the playoffs in three straight seasons and, even with a flurry of offseason moves already, could make it four in a row in 2013.
