Who Belichick discusses talent with is not relevant to the OP nor the point I originally responded to you about. It is, however, a red herring. Nice try. I did not suggest that "Jerry was at least mostly responsible for the SBs of the 90's and Jimmy was along for the ride...". I did not even insinuate that. I simply pointed out that using 1997 as a starting point is not relevant to anything in Cowboys history since Jones has owned the team. There was no major changes that season, no big events, Jimmy had been gone a few years already. The only two things I recall about 1997 was that it was Switzer's last season as coach and the drafting of Dexter Coakley... wait that's it. Drafting Dexter Coakley in 1997 set off a chain of events that led to 17 NFL seasons when combined equal a record of 136 wins and 136 losses!! Damn you Jerry Jones for drafting Dexter Coakley!!! Damn you to hell!!! Your sig picture has nothing to do with the "Jerry the Dictator" thing. That was entirely from the tired trope that Jerry is some puppet master pulling all the strings behind the scenes.
