Unfortunately Jerry Jones won’t fire himself as a General Manager.
It isn’t that the Cowboys don’t acquire good talent the problem is that Jones doesn’t know how to put together a “team”.
The best teams don’t always have the best talent, it is about finding the right chemistry between coaches, players and front office.
Jones has failed miserably at that for more than two decades.
Here is what Jones had to say after the Cowboys were embarrassed by the Packers:
“There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences,” Jones said, per our former PFT colleague (and yet ESPN hired him anyway) Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “I’m talking about within the team — players, coaches who have got careers. This is certainly a setback. I know firsthand what it is to have high expectations. I think unquestionably that our expectations were thinking we’re something we were not, possibly looking at what might be relative to a Super Bowl. All of those things have certainly contributed early.
“But we have so many things that we need to correct and address, as this game so vividly exposed and previous games have. I’ve got a lot of work to do, got a lot of decisions to make. And it’s not just one, two, three or four. There are several decisions. I think everybody in this country would agree that there’s a lot wrong with this team that we’ve got to address, and I’m certainly the one to address it.”
Even if Jones fires Wade Phillips it won’t change much, no one on the staff is capable of turning around this season. He just needs to accept the “L” for this season.
The only way the Cowboys will ever come back to prominence is when Jones steps down as GM, gets a coach and front office person that know what they are doing.
Put down the Ciroc Jerry and look in the mirror, maybe you are the one who is causing the suffering.
