    I'd say you pretty much nailed it.

    Especially Jimmy. How could he possibly say anything substantial about Stephen when he had no hand in what he's doing now in the personnel department when Jimmy was here? Seems like your routine compliment you throw out there to be respectful. Now ask him if he would hire Stephen to run his football team.

    Nice point and counter point.

    I hold out hope that Stephen will step back into the owner role and hire a GM when Jerry dies.

    BS that he said it, or that he meant it?

    And Stephen is 48, so he'd have been 29-30 when Jimmy left.

    I didn't mean to say he was picking players, either. The way I remember it, Jimmy was just talking to his overall intelligence.

    And RisenStar... Garrett doesn't have a track record either, or if he does it's a bad one. Yet you think the world of him. Seems that argument is very selective.

    That he meant it... Even 29-30, I don't remember him being part of this organization and for JJ to actually speak highly of him goes against essentially whatever he has said now, which is he was in full control over all personnel decisions while here. I'm sure he didn't even notice Stephen Jones, who was probably just walking in and out of Valley Ranch when he wasn't golphing or partying.

    Okay, well again, I didn't mean to imply that Stephen had any input in picking players whatsoever. It was more a general impression, that he was a smart young guy and not as headstrong and egomaniacal as his dad. I think I even remember some reports that Parcells asked about the job when he was thinking about coming here, and Jimmy said you'll like Stephen.

    Surely they can cut someone at the bottom of the roster to show that they mean business:)

    If he's that smart, he'll immediately hire a GM when he takes over.

    Good, I hope they blow the thing up and rebuild the offense, long with the HC, and DC, and lest we forget our all-star ST coach.

    Garrett's a 2nd year head coach who got there being a coordinator, before that an assistant coach and before that a player. He's earned his way. If he doesn't start to perform soon he'll be gone. He's held accountable.

    Stephen's been here for two decades, his only qualification sharing a genetic code with the owner, and has been overseeing failure after failure with not even the slightest threat to his job security.

    I fail to see the comparison between the two.

    Yeah, he earned it... By being in the family portrait.

    What are you talking about. Stephen isn't the GM.

    And that's the right answer.

    The reason why Stephen will be great in the future is he's all we have and I can't possibly wrap my brain around the idea that he could be Jerry Jones the sequel.

    He turned down head coaching gigs before taking over the Cowboys.


    No, but he's run our cap and served as the VP of Personnel. Two positions he most certainly was never qualified for and his performance at them should have gotten him fired long ago. He paid no dues. He's held to no standard. His greatest accomplishment has been his daddy's ability to exist all these years. This is why his length of tenure means nothing. He can't be fired.

    How you can compare Jason Garrett to him is beyond me.

    I may sound crazy but I think Stephen at the helm will have a better grip on owning this team. He doesn't seem to want to be on the sidelines at the end of games or want the publicity his father does. Just my opionion. But I'm glad he's saying that guys who are getting paid to be superstars and aren't will be gone. I don't see Jerry doing that. He's still thinking Jason Garrett will be our Super Bowl winning head coach

    He's on the radio every week. I used to think the same, but I'm not so sure about that now.

    Doug Free is the only one who deserves that based on his play. Ratliff and Austin have been fine when healthy.

    Now, health is definitely a concern.

    Yet, here you are, bro. Why torture yourself? I mean, it makes absolutely no sense to even be a Cowboy fan if you hate Jerry, he dies, and his son is just as bad like you think.

    I'll never understand that kind of thinking.
