Good read on the state of things in Big D. Pretty good read if you want to read it all. http://cowboysnation.com/2014/04/evolution-jerry-jones-garret-era.html Article concludes with this: An examination of the history of operations since the 2010 offseason reveals several distinct patterns and trends: 1. There has been a concerted effort to jettison aging players, overpriced players, players that do not fit Garrett’s RKoG model, and players that do not buy into the overall philosophy that Garrett has for his team. 2. The Cowboys drafting has improved. 3. Without sacrificing the level of talent, the roster has become significantly younger (from one of the oldest teams in 2010 to one of the youngest teams in 2013). 4. The frequency of terrible trades/signings has been drastically reduced, though some would argue that they have not been eliminated. 5. The tendency to overpay players out of loyalty or as payment for past performance has been curtailed. 6. Jerry Jones appears to listen to Garrett and company more when making decisions, and he is also ceding more and more control to Garrett.If the criticisms of Jerry Jones in 2010 were valid, then his recent track-record shows plenty of change and improvement.
