Well Verdict, since you asked for it here it goes. I wiil probably only state the following this one time, because, lets face it, we as fans do not want to hear negative talk about our team.
I have been fan of the Cowboys for over 43 years (I am currently 49) and to be honest, even though I will never root for other teams (I just simply cannot), I have reached the conclusion that as long as Jerry Jones manages this franchise, we are not going to get over the hump and back to greatness.
It is not only that we have been "unadequate" to say the least, while at drafting. We may have been fortunate with some high draft picks here or there, but overall, the talent acquisition through drafting has been much less that stellar, and we may hear that those are "made with input from everbody" the truth is, or should be, that it lies squarely in the feet of Jerry Jones.
Secondly, the "structure of command" in the organization is inherently flawed. I do no have cold hard facts about this, though I do have the most definitive and eloquent fact: Our team not only has not done any significat damage in the playoffs in the last 15 years, but we now are the laughing stock of the NFL Network and most of the sport media, and rightfully so, because of all the visibilty attrated by J. Jones.
Visibility, when you are a good an well managed team, can be a great incentive; otherwise it can be part of your downfall: Why should the players really be concerned about winning championships, if irrespective of how they do, they have endorsements, radio shows and money (lots of it) to spare? Couple that with the CEO of the company "hownding" all that attention and you have a bad mix in your hands;not becasue he does it, but rather because they are present with the media, regardless of how they do. This represente millions to the owner, but no good for the sports fan like you or me..
I believed (and still want to believe) that Garret was the right coach for these franchise. I believe now that unless things in the organization change drastically, results will be approximately the same; as proof, just look at our last 5 or 6 years and you will probably see the same pattern of inconsistency.
Personally, even though I am as much of a fan as you will find (certainly not at your level because I do not live in the USA) I simply will cease to invest as much time as I have done in respect of a bunch of guys that evidently (at least in terms of sporting related results) are not as interested as I think they should be in winning.
