Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made an appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas with Shan and RJ. He was asked if he’d consider bringing in former Colts vice chairman Bill Polian.
Jones said that the job of general manager is his and it’s what has worked out the best for the Cowboys organization.
“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 coaching level,” Jones said. “And I think that just deters from the mix.”
Jones claimed that he’s been doing things the same way since 1989 when he bought the team and he understands why questions are raised about his job as GM when the Cowboys don’t win.
“The facts are that I’ve spent 22 years doing this exactly the same way,” Jones said. “I’ve made a lot of changes from year to year as time goes along. “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.”
Maybe that’s the problem, maybe because Jones hasn’t changed the way he does things in over 20 years is the reason the Cowboys can’t seem to get over the hump and make a run at a Super Bowl title.
