Blame Jimmy Johnson. This latest Cowboys cluster bleep and forcibly prying play-calling duties from coach Jason Garrett's now hog-tied hands qualifies as yet another in a long line of them has origins in The Jimster. When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones drunkenly dished "any one of 500 coaches could have won those Super Bowls" and Jimmy basically said "have fun with that, a-hole," this set up a game of chicken that remains even now, long after their public peace. If Jerry admits the head coach is important, by giving them real power, by taking a step back, by not effectively neutering every single one of them, Jimmy wins. If he hires a GM, thereby admitting Jimmy really had handled GM duties back in the glory days, Jimmy wins. Both cannot be right, so rather than admit defeat Jerry Jones keeps doubling down on idiocy.

  • While I would never wish for someone's demise, the Dallas fans look forward to the day when Jerry Jones is no longer a factor in the success of the Cowboys and we can get back to winning football games and that won't happen until he is no longer living. Long live Jimmy Johnson! Jimmy will always be the winner in hearts of the fans.
