Jerry Jones will make more sideline trips


Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has never been known for his hands-off approach to management. His presence on the side lines during second halvess of games was sometimes considered a distraction. He has mostly abandoned those trips but after watching his team melt-down at the end games has him rethinking his sideline visits.

“I used to spend my time on the sideline and probably need to spend some more down there,” Jones said on KRLD-FM Tuesday. “But the bottom line is one of the reasons I’m trying to see and get a feel for is where’s the passion? Where’s the energy? What’s the situation with the team?”

If there was one good think that came out of the new Cowboys Stadium, it is that his new suite provides him such a great view that he doesn’t feel the need to be down there.

“I just have frankly the view that I have at the home games is so good that I really get to see a lot of that,” Jones said. “That’s there’s, so no reason other than that. It’s not really by design and probably before it’s through, I’ll be down there more.”

    The less Jerry Jones is involved the better.

    Uh oh! Jerry’s a-coming so you better watch out! That’s all this team needs right now: more extraneous input from the know-it-all owner. What’s he going to do on the sidelines anyway? Just get in the way and divert players’ attention from the game towards him. That’s narcissism, folks. And for all the money he’s thrown at this team, his constant meddling is the single most reason why this team is struggling where it is today. Stay upstairs, Jerry! You’ve done quite enough, thank you very much!
