Roger Staubach saved the Cowboys many times as a Hall of Fame quarterback. Now he would like to see Cowboys owner Jerry Jones loosen his grip on his general manager duties, which might be Staubach's greatest Hail Mary attempt of all. Staubach, who quarterbacked the Cowboys' first two Super Bowl wins in the 1970s, said Friday he would like to see Jones scale back his dual roles while on the Mike & Mike show on ESPN Radio. "Jerry is trying real hard," Staubach said. "He goes back to the old days when they won three Super Bowls. I think the formula is he's got to find a medium ground there and delegate more authority." The Cowboys are 3-5 at the midway point of the regular season and on a two-game losing streak going into Sunday's game at Philadelphia. The disappointing first half combined Jones' reiterating in interviews that he will not give up the GM title has rekindled the hot-button issue of his handling of the team. Things got even hotter later this week when former coach Jimmy Johnson said he, not Jones, handled all personnel issues, when they won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. "The other big thing is, Jason Garrett is going to be a heckuva NFL coach, but right now he's getting the brunt of it," Staubach said. "If you go back to the Belichicks and even Coach (Tom) Landry at the beginning of their careers, it wasn't always hunky-dory. "So right now Dallas is definitely having a very disappointing season so far, but it's not over. As you know, with the league today with the parity, with the playoffs you can get in at 10-6 and maybe 9-7. So I don't think Dallas is out of it." The Cowboys have won just one playoff game since the 1996 season, the year following their last Super Bowl win. They have not made the playoffs since the 2009 season. "If they're out of it this year, he'll (Jones) continue to get more and more criticism as far as how he's handling the team," Staubach said. "It's his team. He owns the team. He's passionate about it and I can't tell him what to do. So I'm just a big Cowboys fan and hoping for the best." Follow Keith Whitmire on Twitter: @Keith_Whitmire
