Jerry Jones Says Steinbrenner Would Have Fired Him as Dallas Cowboys GM

Jerry Jones said the Dallas Cowboys have had such a bad year that even his friend George Steinbrenner, the late owner of the New York Yankees, would have fired him as general manager.
“Of course he would have,” the Cowboys owner said in an interview to be aired Dec. 12 on CBS Corp.’s “60 Minutes.” “There’s no doubt in my mind he would have.”
Jones last month replaced coach Wade Phillips after a 1-7 start to the season. Under Jason Garrett, who was promoted from offensive coordinator, the team has improved to 4-8. Dallas is still in last place in the four-team National Football Conference East Division and travels to the first-place Philadelphia Eagles (8-4) on Dec. 12.
