Recently Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that he would continue to operate as the general manager of the team. Jones went on to say  that he had been the team’s general manager since he bought it. “When I bought the team, the night I bought it, I said I would be doing what I’m doing and that’s GM the team and making the final decisions on personnel,” Jones said late Sunday night. “That’s the way it’s always been done. We’ve won three Super Bowls doing it that way, so I’m going to do it again.” At least one person disagrees with Jones’ view of the Cowboys early success under him. Jimmie Johnson was the head coach for two of the Cowboys Super Bowl victories and said that the responsibility of the Cowboys operation fell on him. “The time I was with the team, I had complete and total responsibility over the football operation,” Johnson said in a telephone interview with the Dallas Morning News. “That meant personnel, the draft, coaches, including the strength coach.

  • Yes, I heard the story a long time ago. Why bring it up now? Jerry go back to Ark. and take your EGO with you.
  • he is lying. he was hillbilly jones butt buddy because he had an unlimited check book. when the salary cap came into play we saw what kind of coach he was at miami..... a loser.
    he is also a quitter. he quit on his family and you can't get much lower than that. jj is a POC
  • Jerry has proven over the years that he's a hillbilly punk. He will always be a butt scratching, nose picking, sister molesting, beer belching, home grown grown, corn fed hillbilly Joe Bob!
    I believe Jimmy. What come out with this now, you ask? Because , Jed has been running his hillbilly mouth telling everyone that he should be credited for those three Super Bowls, not Jimmy. Jimmy got tired of it.
