Scott Pioli sucks but...I guess it could be worse.

Jerry Jones says being owner leaves him free to risk losses as GM: 'I can ... come back for more'

One of the reasons Jerry Jones has job security as the Cowboys general manager is that he believes he is free to take risks, also being the owner.

“That is one of the luxuries of my position as owner as well as the ultimate decision maker, general manager and president – I can do that and take the losses and come back for more,”
he said this week at Valley Ranch, talking about his management style.

“I have won with that style,” he said. “We are not managing a widow-woman’s retirement account here. In other words, to compete, I think we need to be aggressive. You play the game, you manage the game that way. You take some risks. When they don’t pay off, they look bad. That has happened.”

The conversation began when reporters asked Jones why fans are divided about quarterback Tony Romo. Jones said it goes with the position, with the Cowboys, and with their image.

“We have a pattern of that. We have a precedent of that,” he said. “Aikman didn’t have to have it long because he won it pretty quickly, to his credit. He played at a high level quickly. His predecessors had it, certainly with Roger Staubach. You had it with Danny White. And you had it as far back as Don Meredith. It was so intense, that the criticism probably contributed to an early retirement of Don Meredith.”

Asked why Cowboys quarterbacks get such criticism, perhaps more than quarterbacks on other teams, Jones said, “We push a lot on the table with the Cowboys. Picture going to Las Vegas and putting an inordinate amount on the table with every hand. We do that, and I am a part of that. When you do that and you don’t have the right hand, then you subject yourself to a lot more criticism.”

When Jerry trades to one spot in front of us in April, it won't be funny.

Because of this guy.



After Jimmy's players left, the Cowboys went through:

1. The Quincy Carter era.
2. The Parcells bullshit era (just like us!)
3. And now they are somewhere in mediocrity hell.

Matt Cassel was really bad...but Jerry spent a 2nd on Quincy ****ing Carter....like a black Matt Cassel with a coke problem...and no brain.

The SB wins had nothing to do with Johnson's coaching.

It was smart personnel moves.

JJ did squat in Miami.(Dolphins)

So, if I follow your logic here, the 'Phins went through the "Jimmy Johnson bullshit era"

Jones hired him, so he gets the credit.


I think the early success made Jones think he was the smartest mother ****er on earth. Than the salary cap took his one attribute away.

Jones should thank Minnesota, and the no-salary cap NFL for his success.

Probably.

He knew talent.

I never thought he was a very good coach.

He's always had good talent and coaching around him.
