Jerry Jones went straight Puff Daddy on us.
“It’s often said that, why don’t I get someone to be the GM?” Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan. “Why don’t I get someone to pick the players? Well, who in the world do you think that person when they walk through the door and say, ‘We want to get this player or we want to pay this player,’ what in the world do you think I’m going to do? I’m going to sit down and I’m going to go through it and I’m going to say, ‘Show me the player. Show me everything about the player before I write the check. Show me the player and let me see everything about the player.’
“Well, rather than that have happen, I get involved in it and know everything about the players before they get to the door. That, if you’ve got the time to do it, that’s a better way to do it.”
Under that logic every owner would be their teams General Manager. Yes, the owner writes the checks, but the smart ones allow people who are more knowledgeable about players to handle the responsibility of putting together the team.
You would think after almost 20 years of mediocrity and failure, Jones might want to try something different, but I don’t expect anything to change.
