Stephen Jones: Super Bowl sooner than later with Jerry as Cowboys GM


The Dallas Cowboys look primed for another mediocre season. If they make the playoffs there is little hope that they’d advance past the first round. Cowboys fans have long called for Jerry Jones to step down as general manager. Not too surprisingly, Jones’ son has defended him as general manager.

“We’re gonna win a championship sooner than later with Jerry at the helm,” Stephen Jones said on KRLD-FM 105.3, according to Jeff Cavanaugh.

It has been nearly 20 years since the Cowboys were real Super Bowl contenders. Jones himself said earlier this week that he didn’t expect this much parity in the league.

“Bottom line is, I didn’t get into the NFL – a lot of people say I got in it to coach, and I say that with a wink – the bottom line is that winning has always been everything,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “The first night I got a chance to talk about being the new owner of the Cowboys, I said we got to win, winning is the name of the game. That’s really what it’s all about at the end of the day, winning the football game. It never occurred to me that we would have the challenges that we have, winning the football games. I didn’t anticipate this league that we’re in. I’m not critical of it, but boy, is it a balanced league.

“When you’re sitting here seeing the teams that are about where we are at 50/50 in that range and you see the teams that right today could easily be the world champions that have records like that, then you realize how competitive it is.”

    If everybody is so even, then all you have to be just a little bit better than average. However, since Dallas last appeared in a Super Bowl, 13, yep 13 different NFC teams have played in a Super Bowl. Who is missing ? The Lions, Redskins and Cowboys. Way to go Jerry!

      You are exactly right. Tom Landry said many years ago that in order to win in the NFL you have to stay a step ahead of the competition. With so much parity in the league Landry’s statement is as valid today as it was when he made it. How do you stay one step ahead of the competition when you’re unable to devote full time to the general manager’s job? Wake up Jerry Jones………please!

    Aha! I see. The new excuse du jour for all the Cowboys’s failures is, ta da, parity. That pesky parity is why Dallas is a loser once again! Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along.

    And now Jerry and his talking monkey, Stevie, are out on the stump telling everyone who’ll listen why we shouldn’t expect Dallas to be in the hunt for a division crown or, God forbid, another Super Bowl trophy because all those other teams are just too darned good there’s just no separation.

    This guy actually believes we’ll buy anything he says.

    With Jerry and his dysfunctional family in control, Halley’s Comet will come around again faster than this team will make it back to The Show.

    It is like smokey and the bandit Stephen holding Jerry’s hat and asking “Daddy do you want me to stop these mean people from saying bad things about you?”

    Jerrah is proud of his GM work ??? The Cowboys record of 134-134 since 1997 is the smoking gun of the blind and total arrogance of a narcissist! There is little hope of returning to the glory years with Jerry and Stephen Jones in ownership and their complete mismanagement of the roster, the coaching staff, and the salary cap. I will never ever forget or forgive how this idiot fired Tom Landry!
