    Sorry man but that’s not even what Jerry himself says. I literally heard him say- twice within the last 8 months on radio that he is STILL the final authority on everything. Stephen says it too. If someone wants to provide some evidence in writing that says otherwise, show it. Jerry Jones is calling ALL the big shots.

    Besides…what comfort is there if SJ is starting to take over? Lol. Zero.

    Side Note:
    Jimmy Johnson was 2 Super Bowls in 5 years.
    Tom Landry won 2 Super Bowls in 29 years.

    Jerry won 3 Super Bowls as "GM".
    Tex Schramm won 2 Super Bowls as GM in 29 years.

    None of the Joneses even did Zekes contract negotiations. They were ringing the bell in New York when it was done.

    The reason they give Jerry credit is for business endorsements. They are worried if they say Jerry isn’t as involved the. Endorsement deals will go away.

    those are 100% facts. Don’t believe anything he says on the radio. It’s all a sales job.

    the football is being run by McClay. Jerry has final day on all big decisions like trading a first round pick or firing a head coach. But the day to day is all McClay and co

    Notice these threads only pop up after losses. No mention when there’s big wins like going to New England and winning in the clutch.

    Who cares?

    If McClay is running the show now and the end results remain the same it's still the Jones boys at work. McClay didn't hire himself.

    Every other organization with a GM opening the last 5 years have wanted to so he’s clearly not a scrub

    But if Romo doesn’t fumble that snap in Seattle..
    But if Dez catch was called correctly (still almost 5 min on game clock)…
    But if that ref didn’t get in Dak’s way agin the 49ers…
    But if Romo doesn’t throw that pick agin the Giants in 2007…
    But if the refs and the nfl didn’t conspire agin us to ruin our reg season games and occasionally when we mk the playoffs a playoff game…

    No sir, I won’t stand for this talk agin the fuhrer. If it weren’t for a few “bad breaks”, our fuhrer would have his first Super Bowl ring won without the players and dynasty Jimmy built.

    Sadly Jerry only has 20-25 more years left before he is lowered into the ground at the 50 yard line where there’s an unfortunate accident as several workers, blinded by the sun accidentally drop the fuhers casket and …

    Yeah but we’ve only been playoff irrelevant for just the past quarter of a century and the ol fuhrer has a few good decades left.

    Cartel? I think the word you're looking for is Cabal.

    Extra side note: I would love to compare Schramm and Jones:
    • Schramm and Landry won 20 playoff games in 29 years, including 20 straight winning seasons, playing in 5 SB, winning 2, playing in 11 conference championships, winning 5, made the playoffs 18 times in 29 years.
    • Jerral Wayne and the 8 HCs he’s hired have won 15 playoff games in 33 seasons, won 3 SBs, played in 4 conference championships, winning 3, made the playoffs 16 times in 33 seasons.
    • Schramm and Landry teams never went longer than 6 years without a conference championship game and that was in their first six seasons and the last six seasons.
    • Jerral Wayne has now gone 26 seasons without a conference championship game.
    I’ll take Tex Schramm any day over Jerry. He had a boss he had to answer to and the Schramm children did not hold executive positions for life. Neither did any of Clint Murchison’s kids or Bum Bright’s kids. The owners and GM who ran the Cowboys before 1989 apparently did not believe nepotism is a good thing.

    If you like Jerry better that’s fine. We just have a difference of opinion.

    Jerry hire a football guy to do football things? Will McClay and his yes vote are as far as Jerry will go.

    Teams play to win Super Bowls.

    Nobody goes into the season with the goal to NOT win a Super Bowl.

    Are you seriously referencing Bum Bright as a positive in Cowboys history?

    FYI: Bum Bright

    84 9-7
    85 10-6 Lost their only playoff game with a score of 20-0.
    86 7-9
    87 7-8
    88 3-13

    The 85 season included:
    44-0 Loss to the Bears
    50-24 Loss to the Bengals
    20-0 Playoff loss to the Rams.

    Jerry thinks its bad luck. So, it doesn't matter how many other teams bypass the cowboys in any given year. Its not skill or know-how.......... its luck.

    That’s narrowing the narrative.

    You failed to mention that Tex and Tom went to 5 Super Bowls, 12 conference championship games , had 20 consecutive winning seasons leading the league in playoff wins.

    What would you rather have?
