You are spot on. Jerry apologists kill me with their "having a GM does not guarantee that you'll contend" comments. In a way they are right, but it sure as heck improves your chances. Just having a full time GM would be reap benefits for the Cowboys. Jerry's simply a part time GM. He's not putting his full effort into making the Cowboys better on the field. He's distracted by business decisions, ownership responsibilities, commercials, radio shows, etc. He's probably putting in 7 hours a day as GM whereas the typical NFL GM is spending 12-14 hours a day concentrating on his job. It's evident that the Cowboys are way behind the power curve when you consider that.
