    IRVING, Texas --If you don't think Jerry Jones trusts Jason Garrett to turn around the flailing Cowboys, just look at the roster America's Team will bring to MetLife Stadium tonight against the Jets.
    Not since Jones lured Bill Parcells to Dallas eight years ago has the Cowboys' notorious con trol (and credit) freak of an owner so willingly turned over the keys to his team and essentially gotten out of the way.
    "You definitely feel like [Garrett] is in charge," cor nerback Orlando Scandrick told The Post this week. "This is his team."
    Of course, "out of the way" is relative when it comes to Jones, who still laughably gives himself the title of GM despite never having coached or played in the NFL before buying the iconic franchise nearly 25 years ago.

    Basically a Jones-bashing article. It does acknowledge some of the changes Garrett has made. Overall, just mocks Jerry. Typical of the kind of junk I had to read in NY/NJ papers before the internet.

    Bash Jones and emphasize Garrett's Giants connections. I couldn't even finish the article since it doesn't say anything relevant.

    I was actually enjoying the article until I read that. Oh well.

    There's no question the writer isn't respectful of Jerry, especially so, seeing as how he refers to him as a "freak of an owner." Now, if he had referred to him as a freak of a GM instead, I'd have certainly been inclined to agree without reservation.

    Be that as it may, Jason Garrett deserves the kudos afforded to him by Jones as well as the recognition afforded him by the author of this article. JG bears all the earmarks of a head coach destined to turn a faltering franchise around that has lingered in a sad state of stagnation for the past 15 years.

    I must say that I'm relieved and elated that at long last, Jerry has finally seen fit to entrust a good portion of the management of his team to someone who is infinitely more qualified to lead them back into the ways of success.

    Not a condition for being a serious GM in the NFL.

    Stopped reading.

    Yeah it it worked so awesomely for Matt Millen. Newsome was OK under the old browns, and is pretty good under the ravens. I can't think of anymore former Player now or was GM.

    He called him a "control freak". It was just poorly worded.

    There's no difference. The freak of a GM was hired and retained by the freak of an owner.

    Sometimes the truth hurts.
