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.”
