The Dallas Cowboys have watched themselves fall out of the lead in the NFC East as the Philadelphia Eagles have been able to put together a winning streak, but that hasn’t stopped owner and general manager Jerry Jones from saying that he believes he is doing a great job.
In fact, Jones thinks he has done some of his best work to date.
“The facts are that I really do think the way things have rolled out that I’m getting to do some of the best work that I’ve done, relatively speaking in my career of these last several years,” Jones said on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Jones went on to say that he plans to remain the team’s general manager and owner, and he doesn’t plan on giving up his power anytime soon.
In fact, Jones expects continued success as the team is on the proper path.
“Of course, I said it, and I really meant that and just think about that a minute: Why wouldn’t you?” Jones said. “One of the reasons that I to some degree have taken the risks that I have over the years and kind of had the professional life that I followed is so that I get to decide when enough is enough. God willing. So I do get to decide that.
“It’s a certain part of working for yourself if you still are standing when the time comes. So I get to really make that decision, and I want to make it in a way that I think is in the best interest of the team, franchise and really our fans. A lot of people just need to hear me say I know it’s in our best interest for us to operate the way we have. It’s unfortunate that over these last five or six years that we haven’t had a few things turn right for us at the end of the season, needing to win one of out of two games to get into the playoffs, having a healthy quarterback, all of those things.
“But we’ve been a lot closer than it seems.”
The Cowboys are in danger of missing the playoffs this season if they cannot string together some wins and regain the top spot in the NFC East, but a lack of success hasn’t stopped Jones from tooting his own horn in the past few years and we shouldn’t expect that to change anytime soon.
