Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones: “never thought average was satisfactory”

The Dallas Cowboys have finished the last two seasons with a perfectly mediocre record of 8-8. They haven’t been to the playoffs in three years and Jerry Jones is becoming more and more determined to bring the Cowboys back to prominence.

“I didn’t think I was average or I wouldn’t have stepped up and bought the team,” Jones said. “I never thought that average was satisfactory. Never, ever. I never thought we would be sitting here with that kind of record over the last 10 years. If we had at least one more, possibly multiple Super Bowls, to add to what we have done over the last 15 years, a lot of this would go away, and it should.

“The reality is that it isn’t there. I know how to make it go away. That is to get here and have some success and compete at that level. I can’t have this thing end or have a look at the total picture and have not had more success on the field. We have to do it.”

When asked about all the pictures that were around, none that included current players (not even Tony Romo) only former players, Jones got defensive.

“I don’t have any ones I want to take down,” he said, via the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram. “Where you see those guys are at the stadium, and of course, these are memories around this room. This particular room, it has highlights. It has Aikman’s hands. I don’t have Romo’s hands. Maybe it’s not time for those Romo hands.”

Reflecting for a moment Jones conceded the point.

“But you are right,” he relented. “That’s fair. You look around this room, and you don’t have any memorabilia of a sixth Super Bowl or a team that won a sixth Super Bowl. What you’ve got speaks for itself.”

    It appears Jones just doesn’t get it. There is no doubt he is average or below as a general manager and history will reflect that. He will hold a place beside Al Davis as the worst general manager ever. At least he understands that the Cowboy’s record in the last 10 years speaks for itself. However, he contradicts his assessment of his ability by saying he is not average and not admitting he has failed as a general manager. If he were successful the Cowboy’s record would be better.
