Bill Parcells Says Cowboys Lucky To Have Jerry Jones

It’s hard to believe that this will be Jerry Jones’ 25th training camp as owner of the Cowboys.  The observation obviously tells my age, but also tells the effect Jones has had on the Cowboys, because it seems longer than 25 years.

Bill Parcells was the Cowboys coach from 2003-06, and according to ESPN Dallas, Parcells thinks Jones gets a bad rap.

“I have a high regard for him,” Bill Parcells said during a conference call for his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “He has a tremendous amount of passion for the franchise and I think the people are lucky to have him, lucky to have him as an owner, because they’re not all the same. I can tell you that. Having a guy like that and what he tries to do on a yearly basis there is great.”

Parcells for his part never really incurred the type of intrusion that most Cowboys coaches are accustomed to dealing with, and I believe Parcells respects and appreciates Jones for that.

“He’s a straightforward, honest guy,” Parcells said. “He really is. That’s all I look for. He was very supportive of me as a coach. Now were there things going on that occasionally I didn’t like? Yeah, there were, but that didn’t inhibit me from going to him, talking things out. He’s really great about that.”
