    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he always has been and always will be the general manager in Dallas. The former Cowboys coach who won two Super Bowls in Dallas says Jones is full of it.
    Jimmy Johnson, Jones’s former college teammate who was hired by Jones to coach the Cowboys shortly after Jones bought the franchise in 1989, said on the Dan Patrick Show that Jones may claim he has always called the shots, but that the Super Bowl-winning teams of the 1990s were actually built by Johnson.
    “That is completely a bunch of crock,” Johnson said. “Jerry started putting all those titles on himself after I left. He didn’t call himself general manager and president and all that stuff when I was there. He was just the owner.

    Of course anyone with half a brain realizes that was the case. Amazingly though, there are still plenty of blind sheep that follow and believe in Jerry Jones.

    I disagree, we have been told time and time again that since the day Jones purchased the Cowboys all decisions were done by committee.
    Seems Johnson says other wise.

    I wonder what else will come out over time about Jerry. Every single coach enjoyed working for him.:laugh2:

    I love that last line. "There’s no fear in Dallas. It’s a country club where everybody’s buddies"

    AND THAT is exactly, bottom-line, why the team has failed for so long.

    I'm really starting to hate Jerry Jones....the delusional, self-promoting, egotistical narcissist that he is.

    Jimmy is wrong.

    The Cowboys' 1990 media guide lists Jerry Jones as "president-general manager."

    “Really, the No. 1 motivator is fear, you know, fear of maybe letting down your teammates, of being chastised or maybe losing your job. Where’s the fear in Dallas? There’s no fear in Dallas. It’s a country club where everybody’s buddies,” Johnson said.

    Amen Jimmy!

    We can split hairs over titles, but the only thing that matters is who was the successful architect behind the assemblage of talent that won 3 Super Bowls. That was Jimmy Johnson.
