The Dallas Cowboys were blown out by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football. The Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones was not thrilled. While he said their 5-5 record isn’t acceptable, he felt good about the fact that four of those losses could’ve been wins.

“Five and five is not acceptable,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “But we can say that we were close on all but one of those games. We were competitive and could very easily have won any of those four games that we lost. I would have to say it’d be a stretch to say that we should have won or we should have been in there close in New Orleans. You could get pretty critical of everything if you used New Orleans as the basis to criticize on.

“But in general, yes, I’d like to… I’ll take our chances playing Kansas City the way we played them up there, second game of the year. We had a chance to win that ball game and played well enough to win. Denver, we had a chance to play it and win, so you look back on those, so I don’t think you look at what happened to us in New Orleans the other night and become panicky.”

    Dirty Harry said it best, “a man’s got to know his limitations.”

    Jerry Jones seriously needs to pay attention. We’ve all borne witness to what Mr. Jones has done to this team and it’s time he faced his limitations head-on. His bad decisions, outright mistakes and errors in judgment with the Cowboys football team are well past the point where they can be overlooked or set aside. It’s now Jones’ fault directly for this team losing the way it has for years now.

    Yes. Jones is the owner. But The Dallas Cowboys football team is a legacy to Dallas and an institution with a winning history the fans support. We have a tacit responsibility as fans to keep this franchise on a winning foundation if, for no other reason, as an image of the city. We’ve also had twenty years of Jones’ direct involvement in the running of this club and, today, nothing, not one thing can you look at as a source of pride.

    Enough is enough! No no more excuses! Jones has used us as fans to build his financial empire and, in return, given us a shoddy, poorly built product that is overpriced, in hock well into the future, and, based on what we’ve seen so far, offers no real hope for anything better.

    Jones needs to hire a professional General Manager with professional football experience. In turn, the GM needs to hire a head coach who is a disciplinarian and can re-instill a winning attitude in this franchise and in the minds of the fans who have supported this team faithfully through these past years of mismanagement and poor choices.

    Then, he needs to step back, count his money, and allow this team to achieve greatness again.

    Jerry Jones’ way isn’t working. And it’s time he be called into account for his mistakes.

      Get Bill Cowher out of retirement!!!!!

      • Dr. Timothy J. Williams

        Cowher would never agree to coach for such an interfering clown as Jerry Jones.

  • Dr. Timothy J. Williams

    Time for another face-lift, Jerry. 8-8 on the way, and no playoffs again. When will you figure out that you know NOTHING about football, hire a real coach and a real GM, and let them do their job??
