This was Bryan Broaddus' account of what happened in the 1998 draft when he watched the video of the war room as part of his job when he became a scout for the Dallas Cowboys.
For someone that is in charge of all personnel decisions as a GM, Jerry deferred with his Head Coach and WR Coach on the "final say" of not drafting Randy Moss despite wanting to draft him himself.
Nice attempt at a spin. That was then and this is now. He was GM by title then because he was so new to the league, but now that he’s been in the league for well over 20 years, he considers himself a walk-around coach.
And as Jimmy stated, it was in his CONTRACT
that Jimmy had the final say on personnel decisions. Therefore, Jerry had no choice but to allow Jimmy to exercise his powers otherwise he’d have been in violation of the contract.
Again, as Jimmy pointed out, no other Cowboys coach has had that language in their contract since Jimmy departed. Therefore, Jerry has free reign to meddle and make decisions as he sees fit.
If it weren't for those contractual restrictions that limited Jerry's ability to interfere, I honestly believe we don't win those 3 Super Bowls in the 90s.
