Don't name drop people like Denise York and Jeffrey Lurie and try to insult my intellect to assume they are nearly as involved in day to day operations nearly as much as Jerry Jones. It is all about who exercises the power. Yes, it is understood, well, they are all owners, not general managers who if you asked them to their faces would confirm to you that undeniably they were. You "trumped" everyone again. Bravo. In the running of the day to day operations, yes, Tex carried more "power" than Murchison and especially Bright because there were distinguished and defined roles. There was a distinct owner-GM-coach chain of command. That is something that is very clouded in Jerry Jones' "unique" system which he prides himself in having. Each and every single coach he has employed since Jimmy Johnson has lived by it and knew about it, going in, exactly how it was going to be. There is no ManBehindTheCurtain-CiskowskisortaGM-head coach we all "collectively" make decisions. It all floats up to one place, and that person either can be persuaded or has his own opinion. He would never stand for Jason Garrett pulling a trade or Ciskowski sending in a card without his approval. That was exactly what drove the wedge between Jones and Johnson in the first place. Would you come out and insult one of the more powerful individuals in the sport? Not one time, will you ever be able to produce a quote from any of these head coaches that could ever say that they respected Jerry Jones' football knowledge. Not one. And quite frankly, why would they hate him? He does "listen" more than most. He's got deep pockets. In today's NFL, that is not always the case. And that is almost exactly what Coach Parcells stated. That still does not excuse him of being perhaps one of the worst breeds of GMs in the sport, and there are only a couple.
