    Maybe one day we can lasso the video board, bring it to the ground and stop it with our feet.

    Part of the problem. In Jones' formative years, his two major influences were Tex Schramm (marketing) and Al Davis (owner in charge of everything).

    Are you sure about Tex? I thought he quit very soon after Jerry bought the team.

    It's a Fun House mirror from the circus: he looks in it and sees Vince Lombardi.

    He did. But Jones had a period of a few months during the transition process where he had some takeaways from him. There are distinct and clear similarities with how Jones markets the team to how Schramm did.

    Probably the closest thing to it. He had control of the personnel in his contract. If someone was cut, it came from him.

    You just highlighted the follishness of this entire conversation: no matter what happens with this team, it'll be either his fault for the bad or in spite of him for the good. It's a no win for the guy. That's truly sophmoric to look at it that way.

    I don't even trust Jerry's competence or ability to evaluate even himself.
    Thats like letting the wolves guard the hen house.

    I read the article and his quote says nothing about giving up the GM title. The author makes a leap of faith in his interpolation.

    But we're still talking about the same Jerry Jones that paid Tony Romo over $100 million, and he'll be fresh off of back surgery by the time OTAs start. We're talking about the same Jerry Jones who believed guys like Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and B.W. Webb were worthy of draft picks.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Stopped reading, stupid article. Nothing is wrong with the Romo signing and it's definitely way too early to be complaining about the BW Webb pick. Jesus he was just a rookie this season, you arent even giving him the 3-year rule Parcells went by.

    haha. As automatic as the birds flying south every year....Jerry gives another interview about looking himself in the mirror. Its starting to get insulting to us fans that he thinks we don't know. Here is the formula = stay in control + fire few coaches (deflection) + win few games (false sense of hope) = increase net worth.

    Tex did leave after Jimmy bought the team. Jerry's last GM was Jimmy Johnson, or at least GM in responsibilities.

    Doh! I meant Jerry. That was a Freudian slip . . . Sometimes I do wish Jimmy would have bought the team . . . .
