Jerry is so hungry to to convince people that he was in the mix as a GM and talent evaluator in the 90's that he'd rather see decades of futility rather than concede that it was Jimmy. His ego absolutely will not allow him to do that. That's why he keeps telling fans that we've been doing it this way since he bought the team.
If Jerry should concede and hires a GM that actually builds a winning team, Jerry, in his fragile psychopathic mind, loses again. He just can't do it. He's in a lose, lose situation.
[View Full Quote]The bottom line is that Jerry would rather do it his way and lose than do it another way and win because it invalidates his place in history with the franchise and his mind just won't let him accept that.
The only way Jerry would change is if he was losing big time money and his business sense kicked in, much like when he needed a stadium and hired Parcells to bring back some legitimacy back to the franchise. Jerry has his stadium and has built the franchise to a money making machine, win or lose. We're stuck with this lunatic, egomaniac owner until his maker calls him home......
The bolded is my response to people that say that Jerry wants to win more than anything. I say he wants to win "his way" more than anything, winning and someone else getting the credit doesn't interest him.
Excellent post by the way.
