Jerry seems to be getting exposed more this season than any in recent memory. It might not be enough to effect immediate change, but it will become harder and harder for him to keep the hope and belief alive among the fan base as he stacks failures upon failures.
I think that theebs indicated that the Jerry and Stephen emperor box footage has been absent from the jumbo-tron for the last two home games.
Jimmy Johnson's A Football Life segment along with the Dan Patrick interview finally discredited any of Jerry's (and his supporters) assertions that he had anything to do with the football elements of the Cowboy's 90's Super Bowl runs, or that his subsequent coaches were granted anywhere near the authority and influence that Jimmy was.
Jerry is getting more and more exposed on a national level for being the ultimate problem in Dallas...via general interviews, blind support of his OL, his widely publicized predictions and finally, the often clownish on-the-field failures of a poorly managed team.
Jerry is now almost a full generation away from the glory day performances that he has ridden so successfully throughout his "my-way" tenure. We actually have zone members that never experienced the thrill of the early 90's teams.
While still very financially viable, the bloom or excitement of Jerry's mega stadium seems to have subsided somewhat, helped along by his eagerness to boast about selling tickets to Bears' fans earlier this year, along with prior drunken revelations about hiring Bill just to get the stadium approval. At a minimum, other than sundry lingerie additions, the stadium and it's elevated ticket prices have ceased to be a new distraction that Jerry can wow his local fan base with.
For the first time, the issue of Romo's departure / decline has moved to the forefront. Tony has been a UDFA blessing to Jerry for the better part of a decade and regardless of anybody's opinion of him, Tony has clearly been the best QB this team has fielded since Aikman in his prime. I believe that the fact that Jerry has been unable to win more than one playoff game with Tony, is starting to dawn on people as they anticipate Tony's departure and contemplate his replacement.
Finally, Jerry's hand picked, inner-circle, Head Coaching project looks to be another repeat failure of the "anybody can coach the Cowboys" philosophy. That statement came from the mid 90's era, but Jerry seems to be following that practice by continuing to hire unqualified coaches, vested with limited authority, a decade and a half later.
