    Who’s to blame for the Cowboys’ 3-5 record? Jerry Jones is the easiest target because he’s the owner and general manager. Jason Garrett doesn’t fall too far down that list and Tony Romo usually comes next.

    The Cowboys executive vice president certainly deserves some blame, and he pointed that out Wednesday during his weekly radio interview.

    “You got to have thick skin to work in this world,” Stephen Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “At the same time, they’re being critical of (my dad) and in my mind they’re being critical of me. I talk him into a lot of the things and work with him and suggest a lot of the things that we do that he gets the blame for. I guess because I’m the backup quarterback, if you will, then I get a pass on all of it, which it shouldn’t be. … I know people may think that Jerry just sits up there and puts his thumb in the air and says this is what we’re going to do. But it’s far from that. I’m very, very involved and I have a big influence.

    “Obviously, Jason [Garrett] is, obviously Tom Ciskowski and our scouting department is. There’s a lot of influence that goes on and rarely is there a situation that there’s not a consensus derived. On the very few times that we just can’t come together on something than he’ll be the tiebreaker on it.”

    "Spread the blame"

    everyone is to blame, so no one is to blame

    the second oldest trick in the book after "blame the messenger"

    I blame you both, but your Dad is the real problem. You are just a symptom of that problem.

    Sound like a bunch of trolls in here. Nothing good to say about nothing. And when something good does transpire, it's usually a back-handed compliment. I'm so glad our fans have no control over this team.

    We already do blame you too. Too bad you cant say what you really think, which is daddy needs to be sent out to pasture.

    When there's something really good to get excited about, you'll be the first to know.

    It doesn't have to be exciting. It can be just different and you would spout the same ZZzzZZZz content.

    That's all that Fletch is saying.

    Same as it ever was...... same as it ever was.

    I think the spotlight is beginning to get a little hot for Stephen and Jerry....maybe it is time CowboyNation really stands up and screams and keeps screaming until the team plays like it should. If the Death Star becomes an empty place, things will change....

    Maybe they'll stick some huge tax on them they can never pay. Didn't that happen to the Redskins a long long time ago? Family had to sell.

    Inheritance tax, which I'll guess Jerry has already planned for.

    But, but Stephen Jones was the man that was setting this team in the right direction, when he was pushing for Garrett during Wade's tenure here... He was the one that was finally influencing his father... but, but...

    Here you guys have it, one of the biggest supporters of Garrett... yeah, I blame you too..

    Stephen Jones has a weekly radio show? How much is there to talk about between he and Jerry's shows?
