    Im 26 years old and my whole life the cowboys have been losers. And that's the general consensus with everyone my age and younger. Most people my age could care less about the Cowboys. And thats in Texas.

    Very understandable. Jerry is burying himself in irrelevancy long before he's buried in the ground.

    Jones doesn't care who sits in the stands, whether that be the diminishing number of cowboy fans who haven't yet sold their tickets to opposing fans, or fans of other teams who have bought the tickets from frustrated fans....that is a recipe for disaster since eventually, those same people will stop buying season tickets...season ticket sales go down and then even the money-grubbing Jones' have to take notice...IMO, while he loves the Cowboys, winning is secondary to him...being just on the cusp brings A LOT of media attention both positive and negative...he is like a succubus and needs the media to fuel his own ego, he MUST be front of a microphone nearly every day during the season...he needs revenue to feed that as well...I can't blame him for wanting to make money, but at this point, he needs to hand over the reigns...he won't, but he needs to do so...the storied franchise is a book that is closing...the lack of talent in the coaching ranks that he has trotted out is astounding...only Parcells has had any modicum of coaching ability since Jimmy Johnson's days....

    the last thing that I owned from cowboys merchandise is three jerseys (one each of the triplets)....I do watch on TV each and every game, and will continue to do so, but while I used to want to fly the 1,500 miles to come to Irving and see them, I wouldn't toss my money in his pocket any longer....as far as people talking about the 30-year old+ people having to die off before things will change, I submit that JJ is likely to go before most of us, but then Stephen's ego could take over....my God I just wish JJ could sit in the owner's box like other owners, collect his cash and just shut the **** up - let someone else run the team!

    The problem with your list is that all of those GMs can be fired. Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland and the Jets just started rebuilds. Dominik, Ireland, Dimitroff are well into their tenure. But the big difference is, not a single one of them would last 10 years, let along nearly two decades with one playoff win.

    Jerry Jones is a below average GM because he cannot be fired. Even the only other imbecile in the league that has a GM with no accountability (Brown in Cincinnati) is doing better now.

    He is disrespectful to fans because he insults our intelligence (well some of us, at least, apparently) after every season of close but no cigar. Each year he is promising to make people "uncomfortable", taking people to the "woodshed" but then when it comes to the GM role, he starts suggesting he looks at "the man in the mirror". Here there is no accountability, no anger or retribution, just quiet introspection for that man. And he says that every year, he is not going to fire himself, even though he probably should.

    He's arrogant and does this because he can. He does not care a damn about the fans and fielding a winner unless he can do it the way he wants to.

    Sorry, but that is disrespect.

    Even Snyder got over his ego and hired a GM, it's a sad day when you can look at the Skins and Snyder and wish we had a owner that reasonable...

    Jerry is so out of touch with reality it's not even funny

    Yeah, how's that GM working out in Washington right now and they have a top notch head coach with SB rings? I thought Snyder had a GM a little while back who was making idiot decision after idiot decision, can't remember his name.

    Things that are important to Jerruh:

    1) EGO 2) Getting credit, 3) Stadium (because it's his legacy), 4) $$$$$, 5) His radio show, 6-25) 50 miles of b.s. stuff, 26) maybe winning...

    Sadly if the idiot hired someone to run his oil companies like he runs this team that person would be out on his butt long ago.

    And even sadder would be if Jerruh would get out of the way and let real football people lead the team winning would equal more and more $$$ for him.

    If they didn't get slapped with that insane cap penalty it would probably be working out much better right now, out of all the teams in the east their future looks the brightest whiles ours looks as bleak as the Campo years

    I think so, too.

    Since Jerry isn't going anywhere, maybe we can hope for a situation like in KC. Clark Hunt fired Pioli and said the new coach would report directly to him. And it's obviously working for them.

    Of course that only works with a proven, established, accomplished NFL coach. Not with some wet-behind-the-ears pet project.

    So, we cut Washington some slack because they have to deal with a cap penalty. But, cut Jerry Jones no slack for dealing with a similar cap penalty. And after giving up a boatload of picks for RGIII, how bright does that future look if RGIII gets another torn ACL, his 3rd?

    Similar? They got hit much much harder then us. And spare me the what ifs Romo could go down for good in the next game and we'd still be on the hook for his guaranteed money.

    Next offseason the skins will have plenty of cap room, a young promising QB and the best coaching staff in the NFCE while we'll have what ever puppet Jerry replaces Garrett with, 30 mill in cap money we need to trim just to get under the cap most likely as a result of restructuring which is just pushing it off into the future while we're stuck with declining vets we can cut.

    They are in MUCH better shape then us right now

    Best coaching staff in the NFCE? Washington?:D Okay. That Kyle Shanahan wouldn't even be employed if his dad wasn't the coach. Haslett? Washington fans are fed up with him and his pathetic defense this year. It sure looks like the game has passed Mike Shanahan up. Would it be a big surprise if Washington fires them all if the team tanks the rest of the way?

    Washington will have cap money to go shopping next year. But they don't have a first round pick. And do you really think RGIII is ever going to run around as much as last year? Not if he is smart and wants to have a career and get paid big money. So, how good a pocket passer will he be? We'll see.

    Well, I agree that Jerry should have fired Jerry GM long ago.

    But you are off on most (not all) of everything else you said there.

    He does want to win...I bet even worse than any of us do.

    He does not own any oil companies...and has not for many years.

    He's more of a "football" guy than most are. The guy spent his whole life either playing it or managing it, and/or being around people who played, coached, or mananged it.
    As we can tell, it still hasn't made a good GM.

    He wants to win "his" way...when he gets credit. So yes, I'm sure he does want to win more than any of us...but only because he is looking awful right now.

    As far as not owning oil companies, my point is that Jerruh would not have let someone run those companies like he has run this team.

    As far as a football guy...no...end of conversation...no. Heck as a "businessman" negotiating contracts he is a failure. Of all teams that wouldn't be in cap trouble, shouldn't Jerruh the master businessman know how this works?

    Look, I'm not even trying to defend Jerry here, but he has been around football more than 99% of the people out there...with direct exposure to some great coaches and a direct line of communcation to some great GMs...plus he was an outstanding college player and team captain of a national championship team.
    Did it do him any good? Well, I won't argue that one way or the other.
    The point was compared to most owners, or even GMs, his resume is pretty packed.

    Still think he should have fired Jerry GM long ago.
