Good news, Cowboys fans. Jerry Jones plans to look in the mirror and “make some changes,” according to a story on the WFAA-TV website.

It’s a poor comparison with regard to the importance of the issues at hand, of course, but I’ve always sort of envisioned...
“I’m stumped. I am stumped … other than calling some plays with the Dallas Cowboys I don’t know what his credentials are for an offensive coordinator. This goes back … Sparano’s relationship with [Jets GM Mike] Tannenbaum goes back to the [Bill] Parcells days, too.
