Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did an interview with ESPN today and once again broke down why he has his hands in so many of his teams affairs while many owners take a hands off approach.
Jones was asked why he doesn’t split delegate his responsibilities.
“For years when I first got involved….the discipline that I came from said…the owner was on the floor where the product was being built or where it’s being sold then he was really paying attention to things. It’s just a question of communication. It implies though that that same person, I’m not going to talk in third party, that I may call the decisions which has never been the case, ever. I respect so much our coaches input, our input from our scouting department, our input from our….from every constituence that we have,” said Jones.
Jones also went on that say that he’s replaced six head coaches as the owner of the Cowboys and that he’s never had to replace a general manager and that keeps some of the continuity.
What Jones fails to realize is that as much as he might love the continuity of himself as the Cowboys general manager, it’s produced zero Super Bowl titles.

The Cowboys part-time GM might explode if Romo and Garrett can't win their division this season.
I was able to follow-up my 13-3 Week 1 with a 14-2 performance in Week 2. Sitting at 27-5, I am two picks better than all of the ESPN Experts (Link).
I am very high on the Chiefs this season and wanted to pick the Thursday night but I felt like I had to go with the Eagles...

The question I’m sure you’ve been asking yourself all week is: which Dallas Cowboys team will show up to AT&T Stadium on Sunday afternoon? Will it be the balanced, consistent, opportunistic and mistake free squad we saw in week one that looked ready to end the four year playoff drought? Or will it be the pass the ball until you puke, un-clutch and just overall mediocre...
Dallas Cowboys veteran guard Brian Waters split time with Mackenzy Bernadeau at right guard last week in Kansas City but Jerry Jones says the 36-year-old is ready to get all of the snaps at that position Sunday against St. Louis.

The relationship between SCOUTS AND AGENTS The relationship between scouts and agents is tricky, and it’s important to understand how information flows around the league. Connections: Every year, agents and financial planners get certified by the NFLPA expecting some sort of special insights into identifying prospects, or at least a way to build bridges with […]
IRVING, Texas -- A Dallas Cowboys transition from 10-year NFL safety Will Allen to fast-learning rookie J.J. Wilcox will not be executed the way Mom used to tell you to remove a bandage from a wound. You know, "Rip it off fast, so it stings less."
This change figures to be gradual. And maybe painful. But in the end, it will hopefully be a permanent solution in the secondary...
IRVING, Texas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said he was humbled to pass Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe on the all-time receptions list for tight ends on Sunday.

We are two weeks in to the regular season and the Dallas Cowboys sit where they have going all the way back to six games remaining in the 2010 season. That’s right, they ended that season 3-3, which makes a total of two and half seasons playing at exactly .500 ball. Their record over that span is 20-20.
Coincidentally, or not, Jason Garrett was hired 42 games ago, two games prior...
We’ve all seen this movie before.
The Dallas Cowboys started the season on fire.
They forced the New York Giants to commit 6 turnovers. The last time the Cowboys forced that many turnovers in a game was 2003, and I was 9 years old.
Most of the time when a team causes that many turnovers it’s a blowout. However, the Giants still had a chance to win that game in the fourth...

Kansas City is a good team that’s going to the playoffs so there’s no shame in losing by 1 in Kansas City. Dallas is only going to get better as Anthony Spencer and Jay Ratliff return from injury, along with Brian Waters, signed out of retirement, taking over as the starter at right guard. He didn’t play last year and he’s definitely over the hill in football...
