fact: he has
fact: it's gone better than most hoped
so it must stand to reason jjones is willing to be a more quiet owner IF it translates into winning again. it also stands to reason he would be willing this time around (now that experience has shown him) to give more control to someone like - jimmy johnson.
[View Full Quote]truth be told, the NFL would probably love to see it also. i could be pushing it here, but hey - the media and hype of the re-teaming of the pair that brought was used to be untouchable until NE just did it?
i just wonder how long people will flog jjones with his past when obviously HE's gotten past it, if not many others.
Even if Jones is "past" it, the man's ego certainly came at a great expense to this organization. I don't believe he is past his ego problem, if Parcells manages any kind of success with this organization, when his time came Jerry would hire another moron and we'd repeat the cycle. If Jerry is past his ego, why does he insist on believing he knows anything about how to evaluate a professional football player? If Jerry didn't have an out of control ego, he'd a hire a damn GM.
