He wasn't cheap with Parcells, Payton nor Jason. Dallas has had the highest paid assts for pretty much the entire past decade.
Jerry will pay for wanted coaching. He doesn't like losing out to other franchises.
11 million is absolutely nothing to Jerry Jones in the landscape of the Dallas Cowboys. Winning a title would be worth literally billions to him in additional income over a fairly short span.
Lost revenue as people become apathetic would still cost him far more than 11m.
Exactly right. Especially the part about paying the assistant coaches. We all remember (though most now regret) how much he paid to keep Jason as OC in Dallas when other teams wanted him as their head coach.
There's fair criticism of this team, and then there's overreaction because people are disappointed. Not surprisingly, we're seeing a lot of the latter during this losing streak.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
