DeMarcus Ware doesn’t want Jerry Jones on the sidelines


The Cowboys melted at the end of a game again and lost to the Detroit Lions in the final seconds of the game. That has Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinking about patrolling the sidelines again. Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware says they don’t need Jones down there

“Leave him up there,” Ware said, laughing, via the Dallas Morning News. “We have Dez for the passion. We don’t need two passions. Everybody stay where it’s at, and we’ll be alright.”

The comments remind you of another Dallas franchise player telling his owner to cool it, Dirk Nowtizki and Mark Cuban. Jones was asked why he doesn’t come to the sidelines as often as he used to. Basically, Jones likes his view.

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

“As you know, I used to spend my time on the sideline and probably need to spend some more down there,” Jones said. “But the bottom line is, one of the reasons I’m trying to see, and the things I’m trying to get a feel for, is where is the passion, where is the energy, what’s the situation with the team.”

    Finally!!! A plaintive, barely audible voice of reason shouting into the gale. Ware’s right. Jones on the sidelines is just one more disruption Garrett and the players don’t need to deal with to stay focused on the game. Betcha he’s gonna do it anyway. Nothing trumps Jones’ monumental ego.
