Stephen Jones is very unimpressive

    You owe me a laptop because now it is covered in Mt. Dew :p

    Whenever I see that kid, Spalding from Caddyshack immediately comes to mind!

    I hope not but he's Jerry's spawn. Cut from the same cloth & I'm sure that being so he probably thinks he's entitled.

    What kills me is that so many fan say "He doesn't have any football knowledge" That is such an over used and meaningless phrase. This family has been heavily involved in running the Dallas cowboys for 24 years. This is their life blood. It flows through them, this is their passion. The are heavily involved in EVERYTHING Dallas Cowboys, the intimate details of the contracts, the lock room problems you never hear about, players families, coaches and their styles and decision making processes, money management, advertising, growing the family business and Dallas Cowboys name and that is only a fraction of things. Hell, NFL owners meetings, future plans, things you will never hear about until the changes are made. Then some casual fan comes along and says hurp durp they have no football knowledge hurp durp...man get out of here with that mess. I am sure they know FAR more than 99 percent of the posters here myself included.

    Look you can only get so much talent signed the way the NFL works these days.
    Other than stockpiling draft picks and getting long term deals in place for everyone.
    At least the Cowboys are willing to go out and sign someone to improve.

    Look at how the Eagles manage their player signings and CAP.
    Hardley any FA signings and lot's of CAP space.... And as a result no SB trophies.

    But in all fairness it starts with talent evaluation and a little luck with injuries.

    I don't expect that at all although it's possible. And I don't think he and Jerry have the same personality at all. I believe Stephen is well thought of and actually so is Jerry although not as much for the GM as for the owner/business man. Jerry has made a ton of money for everyone.

    That circle of people is not that large and most of them are networked together well. I think there's some not all warm and fuzzy feelings with some but they can close ranks fast. Stephen is an asset to the Cowboys. But I do hope he hires a football guy for GM and let him bring some of his own people in. All organizations need fresh blood from time to time and new ideas.

    In the end I'm a fan of the Cowboys first then perhaps the owners et al. The Cowboys are bigger than even Jerry Jones' ego.

    BTW, Stephen (and most other teams) can always buy a FA contract and just restructure current player's contracts to make room for it. But that's not a very good way to play the cap game.

    Stephen got the backup QB treatment from fans for years. He was the genius in waiting. The future is bright with him.

    The truth is he's his father's son. I've seen zero evidence over the years that he's any different. He's been equally incompetent in his job as Jerry has been in his. Now maybe when the time comes he hires a real GM to run the football operations. In that case, I'll salute him as truly brighter than his father would ever be. But I doubt that happens. I think he thinks he's a football guy. He'll point to the 20 plus years of running a team on his resume. Of course he was hired by his father. can't be fired and the team has gone through the worst years in franchise history under his watch...but let's not argue semantics.

    Do you know of these "things" he's responsible for? Educate me....
    LOL

    Like I said I think at this point I prefer Jerry. At least he is charismatic and likeable. Stephen comes off very arrogant and entitled. Not really surprising considering he's a billionaire's boy.

    No way. Not me. I know Jerry offers no hope. I at least have a shred of hope that Stephen will hire a GM.

    Even if he's the same as his dad, we're at least one step closer to possibly bringing sanity back to our front office.

    You're not impressed with Jones because you're so smart with such high standards.

    Most of the time when I see Jerry on anything I can't understand half of what he is saying. He rarely makes any sense to me.

    Or he looks smashed. I don't think he's charismatic at all.

    I think at least Stephen has his dad beat on both those points. He can make complete sentences. That's an improvement.

    I don't have to. Just because there are multiple teams with ONE bad contract is pointless. We have more than one.

    Spaulding Jones will be in line soon. He was hanging out in the draft room a lot this past April so he could learn from "the best".

    I think the point of this whole thread is the same subject we've talked about for years. The offensive line not getting fixed.

    It is more about the talent on this roster not being fixed thanks to the front office leadership. If it was not the offensive line, it would be the secondary. Or the defensive line. Or whatever positional group was misevaluated. It has been that way for nearly two decades.
