I’m sure these comments will draw the ire of Cowboys fans, and Cowboys haters all the same.
Jones was on Dallas radio Friday, and a day after giving Jason Garrett a vote of confidence as head coach, Jones said that “he’s doing his best job ever as GM, and plans to continue the dual role of Owner and GM for 15-20 years.”

“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 on Friday.
“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.”
