    Dallas Cowboys: The Jerry Jones effect may finally be positive this season

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has long been criticized for the way he approaches ownership of his team. It may not be such a bad thing next season.

    The Dallas Cowboys were not apart of yet another high-flying postseason NFL weekend, such as the one that just passed. It is partly due to that very fact that they are now the proud new recipients of a new head football coach for the first time in about a decade. With Jason Garrett being jettisoned last week after about a week of sluggish deliberation, Mike McCarthy was quickly tabbed to be the guy. McCarthy is a quarterbacks guy, he is an offensive guy, he is no-nonsense, and he also knows how to deal with strong personalities. These are all things we know about McCarthy based on his time as the Green Bay Packers’ head coach.

    To wrap up the segment surrounding what we know about McCarthy based on his Green Bay days, we also know he has never had an in-house owner to deal with, and especially not one as hands-on as Jerry Jones is and will continue to be. For clarity, in Green Bay, the city owns the team. It’s a very sticky concept to try and totally wrap your head around if you are unfamiliar or if this is your first time hearing it, but it is basically a bonded trust to the residents of the city, who initially financed it’s being via the purchase of said bonds.

    ...Jerry Jones also just went through a decade of Jason Garrett, which should have him on proverbial edge when it comes to the performance of his current Head coach, whoever that may be moving forward and of course McCarthy at the moment. Although Green Bay is a traditional NFL powerhouse and franchise in the NFL, the media attention, coverage, and public scrutiny is nothing like that of the Dallas Cowboys, as no professional sports team anywhere in any league experiences anything like it. This is something else that will help to keep McCarthy from experiencing some of the same things that eventually helped to end his tenure in Wisconsin...

    So McCarthy slacked off because he had no one looking over his shoulder. That sounds more like the GM in Green Bay wasn't doing his job, so McCarthy just started sleep walking on preparations.

    Maybe something so simple as this match-up matches for both Jerry and the team...without insulting with prejudices with agenda.

    Football has still progressed with the Cowboys, and there is a lot of talent and coaching that is solid. Maybe now, the leadership will allow that to be a successful combination. But stupid...naw.

    No doubt about it he was sleep walking...he had a garbage gm, a qb who wouldnt listen and even publicly trashed his coach and he knew if he rocked the boat he would be left in the cold if it came down to him or Roger's. So he threw his hands up and was like.. *** it I'm going to go get a massage...

    I didn't need prejudices or an agenda. Jerry's track record did the job.

    He can try to talk Luke K. for the Panthers out of retirement.

    It’s Jerry’s team.

    But he owes us.
    He owes me.

    No decent human being should EVER dangle an offer to Luke.

    He needs to stay away from football.

    This Kenneth Wilson that wrote this article made a mistake and omitted a couple of things. Yes the public owns packers stock in Green Bay but the franchise is held in trust by the local American Legion Post Also McCarthy as all other head coaches didn't have a single owner to worry about but they all had a team president who represented the owners and a GM to worry about.

    The success of the team is directly proportionate to the lack of the involvement of the owner.

    What a stupid premise. Are all of the successful teams successful because there's an owner in the building? How many of the owners actually hang in the team's building?

    This may be the poorest sale of a sow's ear we've seen in many years. Owners that are not hands on owners are not involved with the day to day of their teams, they hire people like Presidents, VP's, GM's and HC's to handle that and there are no successful teams of hands on owners.
