    Keep buying those ticks and Pesi and Pappa John's pizza at AR&T stadium. and you will keep getting 1 playoff win in 17 years. it's your fault, not Jerry's.

    whoa your gonna get berated with that crazy talk going on around herd. Teams with gm.s and real football men dont make mistakes. They dont give up entire drafts for WRs or overated, innacurate passing QBs

    This is sad, but it actually traces back to Jimmy Johnson expressing interest in the Jacksonville opening back in 1993 when they were awarded a franchise.

    Jones said after the firing took place that he needed someone who was completely invested in the Cowboys and felt the pain due to the equity in the team, not just from drawing a paycheck. It was from that point forward that he did not put personnel control in his coach's contracts.

    This was likely all part of some plan of his to become the complete face of the team, but its roots, at least as it was articulated, was grounded back then.

    What he fails to realize is that if he were to turn over the reins of the team to a qualified GM, and allowed that person the room to operate properly, he would be hailed as being someone who did what was best for his team and organization. What he fails to realize is that if that team, with the revised structure, was to win a Super Bowl, he would be celebrated as an owner who did right by his team, and sacrificed his ego for the betterment of his franchise.

    The problem is that he is too mentally diseased and narcissistic to see this.

    Firstly - NO ONE has said go pick a GM off of a tree. No thanks on second servings of futile. I'm positive that's the majority consensus.

    Secondly - If they have all of this talent why are they a .500 team? Look no further that the man-with-the plan and gran-poohbah of all that is thee Dallas Cowboys. He hires and fires. HIS words......not mine.

    i should note that the 15-20 years comment was made by the reporter who interviewed him, you don't actually hear jerry say it in the interview..

    as soon as the segment was over the interviewer had some live closing comments and that's where she mentioned jerry telling her (off camera) he wants to do this for "15-20 more years".

    Not to add insult to injury, but if he really feels he can sell the world on his staying in control, he likely won't worry about selling a fan base on keeping Garrett around. As long as he's in charge, I really don't see it mattering.

    Nothing will change till he's strumming a harp or holding a pitchfork.

    I just watched the piece.

    What was the point of the video? Why in the world did the CBS this morning crew come interview Jerry?

    Why are people so obsessed with talking about the stupid stadium? Who cares? I mean that, at this point who cares?

    I wonder which other nfl gm's are going to be on CBS this morning talking about their stadiums this week?

    Unfortunately, things won't improve, until ol' Jerruh moves back to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

    this is exactly what I was thinking when I was watching this morning. what was the point of this?

    granted i missed the 1st half of the interview, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt that maybe they were talking about something worthwhile at the beginning but I guess they didn't?

    jerry is something else I tell ya. he has dalrymple call up the major networks for these "introspective" interviews every few months. this is the first time i've seen him on a morning show, usually they just call up costas.

    None. Only Jerry. It's like he's blind and driving a Porsche down the interstate.

    As to why, I'm guessing this was part of CBS's Thanksgiving day game...

    Then why show it now & not on Thanksgiving? Lord knows they have enough silly pregame stuff. You may be right though.

    That was my first thought, red kettle kickoff stuff.

    The only thing the guy didn't mention was the artwork then it would have been a complete Jerry interview where he pats himself on the back for being so cultured and such a forward thinker.

    this guy irritates me so much at this point I don't want to watch any football.

    Excellent post. Doesn't even take a doctorate in psychiatry to see how you perfectly assessed Jerry's mental/character issues as truly, the big picture culprit, which has systematically been bringing down this once proud organization for the last 17 years. Unfortunately, it will be getting even worse very soon.

    lol sounds like a prison sentence of something like that if they don't start winning more he may have it all to himself may not be any one left for him to worry about spending money or pulling for the team
