Ever since it has been a pattern of mediocrity. We have changed coaches, QB's, players, schemes, and the one thing that never changes is the circus master. What is worse is that because he owns the team the fan base is powerless, unless it is really willing to quit being involved with the Cowboys. If ever a team was held hostage it is this one.
Jerry is a good business man, he is a good promoter, he is good at growing his own wealth, but he is an abject failure as a GM.
I just saw Cirque du Soleil with my wife in Orlando. Unbelievable, really. They had clowns. Many distractions between acts to draw your attention.
Jerry has been stirring things up for 17 years now to draw our attention away from the main act - winning championships. His first act was so long ago that many of the young ones in the audience didn't even see it.
Maybe he would be successful as a coreographer at Cirque du Soleil in the Cowboys stadium. He certainly isn't as a GM of a professional football team.
