Shudder the thought, but would this get Jerry to step down?

    This scenario would be awful, but do you think it would be enough to get Jerry to step down? The scenario is 5 straight extremely ugly losing seasons, and I mean very ugly, 3 and 13 or worse each year. Fans get so bored and frustrated that they stop coming to games. Our fans' seats get sold to opposing fans, and each game looks more like a home game for the other team. Like I say, very, very ugly. Would that be enough to finally convince Jerry that maybe being GM just isn't worth it? Maybe he hires a GM and enjoys more time in the Cayman Islands.

    I like the OP's thinking.

    Add sponsors that pull out and other revenue losses.

    To use oilfield talk, it will take a diamond drill to get to JJ's ego, but drill, baby drill!

    Nothing short of an apocalyptic event would force Jerry out

    It would get you another Parcells type situation. Where the new coach is basically revamping the franchise but it will be made clear that Jerry is still the GM. He'll pick his spots to meddle rather than rule with an iron fist like he does now.

    The only thing that would ever force him to stop this nonsense would be for our fans to actually revolt and not spend a dime on his product. He'd have to at that point. He's not in the business of losing money. But that won't ever happen.

    The problem is that guys like Parcells will no longer want to coach in Dallas. The system is dysfunctional in Dallas and most coaches who could go anywhere won't go to be ruled by Jerry.

    Jerry will never give up enough of the decisions making to get a Parcells type coach. Jerry did it once and decided it wasn't fun.

    Jerry is running the team like a corner mom and pop grocery store. One kid at the cash register, another handing out flyers in the neighborhood nad grandchildren stocking the shelves. And the wife painting the place. The problem is that you can't run an NFL franchise like a local 7-11.

    And big name coaches know that.

    Yeah, that's what they said before Parcells came here. He'd never come here. No way. No how. Yada yada yada.

    All it takes is Jerry willing to give him a lot of control as a head coach and they'd all want to come here. Because, for whatever reason, this is still the big stage of the NFL. They all want to be the one to take the Cowboys back to the top.

    I never buy that stuff. Give me one example of Jerry failing to get the head coach he's wanted. It's never happened. You can chalk this one up with his Arkansas Razorback fetish.

    You could start a cult. As it's leader, you would go to Jerry World during a game and climb up to the service area for Jerry's big video screen. You could then do a swan dive to the field as a protest to Jerry being the GM. If your cult members would continue the protest, eventually something would have to happen. Goodell and Mara would not let Jerry continue to bring bad publicity to the NFL.

    I would be willing to pay the bribe to get the security Guards to let you climb up there.

    no, he won't. he will just try to spend money. he made that mistake with campo. he gave up on drafting and every so often he inserts himself, mostly because he likes to make deals.

    I would prefer to live to see him step down. Maybe we could just hack the scoreboard and have it flash the message, "Jerry step down" during the game.

    Jerry won't do it.

    He hired Parcells to get his stadium built. Jerry got tired of walking on eggshells and happily let Parcells leave after Terrell Owens was forced on him by Jerry.

    There will be no more walking on eggshells by Jerry. Jerry is going to win HIS way, come hell or high water.

    BTW, Bill Cowher publically mentioned he could never coach in Dallas. You can argue whether that's a good thing or bad thing, but he stills carries a lot of clout in league circles. Does anybodt think Bill Belichek would coahc in Dallas under Jerry Jones? No way. No how.

    Sean Peyton might, only becuase he and Jerry are pals. But there are many who would not.

    When he lets Garrett go, Jerry will then be forced to confront that he's been the common denominator and step down.

    Then he'll get voted to the Hall of Fame at 75 and it'll be, "I'm back baby! Move over Stephen. Let's see...Lacewell told me about this wide receiver..."

    In mein mind here is the scenario I like adn with a guest starring role of Ginger from Gilligan's Island.:
    Roger Goodell half a news conference and he announces that "For the good of professional football, Jerra Jones should step down." He (Roger) then turns to me and says "Gimme, here is your personal secretary, Ginger. It is up to you and only you to rebuild the Cowboys as you see fit." I figure the rebuilding of the Cowboys can wait a day and I take Ginger to Neiman Marcus and I buy her a dress. And of course she is all over me for my generosity and later we take a tour of AT&T Cowboys Stadium and we change the name to Ginger Stadium. She is all over me again and I says to her: "Get serious, we half the Cowboys to rebuild!" She straightens up and we get busy and that year we go to the Super Bowl based on my keen knowlledge of football my my love of the Cowboys and of Ginger.
    Pls tell me if you like my scenario.

    The problem with this scenario is that Romo will win us 6 or 7 games just by himself, so it will never get to the 2 or 3 win disasters you are talking about, as long as Romo can still play.

    Now after Romo is gone, then you might have a chance at that 3-13 season.

    I'm in. I half electrical knowledge and a watch cap, mask and gloves to hide mein identity. I am also limber enough to climb onto the scoreboard.
    Also, Reverand I like the shape of your head. My head is a little pointed but you can't see it beneeth my artist's beret.

    No, that's too easy and security would not allow it to happen more than once.

    You need to commit to your own cause and make this happen.

    You could be just hours away from being remembered by Cowboys fans as the greatest fan ever. The one that got Jerry to step down. You would be remembered for eternity (or until the next loss).

    Unfortunately there are very few coaches like Parcells who have the skillset to build a roster and coach it. In today's NFL, it is two different skillsets and two full time jobs. In my opinion outside of a select few, it cannot be done effectively by one person. Therefore, I think I would pick a guy like in a dan reeves consultant role in player personnel. I don't know who that is though. Has Ron wolf been out of the nfl too long? It couldn't be just a position in name only. The person in that role would need some power. Unfortunately with Jerry and son, I am not sure they would ever give up power in that room. They would probably hire a top coach again while maintaining the power and letting everyone know it too.

    How's Ginger looking now that she's 80?

    Probably good for an 80 year-old, but she won't be competing with any 20-something models.

    How do you have time for this? You should be recruiting your cult members. Maybe CZ could setup a Cult Zone for you to discuss your plans to sacrifice yourselves for the betterment of Jerry Haters around the world.
