    Jerry Jones: I don't see myself stepping down as GM or retiring any time soon

    Not happy with Jerry Jones the general manager? Well, don't expect anything to change in the near future. The Dallas Cowboys owner and GM made it known on Monday that he isn't going anywhere. After all, it's his team, so he can do whatever he wants.

    But considering the Cowboys haven't played for a Super Bowl since the mid-90s, critics have asked for Jones to step aside and hire someone to handle that position.

    So does Jones ever sit back and ponder the idea of moving aside and hiring a GM?

    It's a lose/lose proposition for him to quit now.

    If the team then goes on to win, it only serves as proof that he was the problem all along.

    He would rather take his chances doing it his way than to win with someone else at the controls.

    He knows damn well the perception is that the 90's run was the work of Jimmy.

    Jerry wont quit until he has at least another 15 tries at a title.

    Get comfortable folks, it's probably going to be a long ride.

    Did you mean lose? Because if they go on to win it would prove he wasn't the problem the way most say it.

    He loses either way by quitting now.

    If the team wins anytime soon after that, it goes a long way toward proving he was the problem.

    So either lose in that regard, or literally.

    Moot point anyway. He isn't done thinking he can win.

    I like Jerry but I will say anytime this franchise fails any time a coach fails as GM that goes back to Jerry. There have been moves this team has made I disagree with and some I have liked. I think Jerry over the last few years has changed how things will be done and hopefully this will pay off in the long run.

    I'm confused...was this really ever in question? Are there actually people out there who actually believe there is any chance that Jerry plans on firing himself as GM?

    You'd think this topic would become extremely old given that it's simply not going to change until Jerry is ready to hand everything over to Stephen....but I guess not.

    I'm definitely in the "I wish he'd turn it over to Stephen" camp, but deep in my gut I know that he will be the next Al Davis. He won't ever quit. He'll have the reigns until the day he dies. Literally.

    JJ, we know that you will never do it but can you at least not say that?

    And I will give you the same answer.

    After days of quoting me in posts about Tebow...... you suddenly want to "call it a day" after I notice?


    how predictable.
