He's good at the oil business, not a the football business. IMO he should step down as GM, but remain the owner. However, to claim that he's perfectly happy with a mediocre team just seems to me to be untrue.
I agree with the statement that he is happy with a mediocre team. Good feedback, I feel he is not uncomfortable enough with being mediocre. Mediocrity appears to be more comfortable than stepping down as GM. So good call on him not being happy with losing, I agree that is an incorrect statement. I'll go back and look for wording/verbage that either outright says he is happy or infers he is happy and change it to comfort level. He seems comfortable, albeit unhappy, with being average than it would be to hire a GM and maybe win more games. It's almost like he's stuck in this proverbial staring contest with Jimmy Johnson for who built the '90's Cowboys and Jerry is the only one playing. But anyway my point was not to say he's happy with losing, but losing has not made him uncomfortable (or painful) enough to swallow his pride and get some help. Thx again for the head's up.
