    It’s fun to throw that out there but it has no meaning unless Jerry actually throws that kind of money to attract someone.

    Yes. Which I believe is a lesser football product. And become a bigger sports entertainment product.

    Jerry basically took success on the field out as being critical for financial success. Not sure why we’re pleased with glitter without the glory?

    I actually believe Charlotte and Jerry jr won’t allow Stephen to run football operations as Daddy has.

    Jerry is the most hated sports personality in DFW area. The reaction is predictable.

    No, Jerry was on local sports talk radio multiple times after that draft and it was obvious he would have preferred Manziel.

    Yes but nationally and with the other owners he is glorified for the money it has brought them. He's not in the hall of fame for his team's success. Look I will be cheering when he dies because he is cancer for this team.

    Of course but when you say he’s been good for football I’m assuming you only mean for business side of it ?

    All of the glitter has no meaning to me. Unless you’re financially invested like the owners, networks or sponsors are.

    I’m not sure we can say the game itself is a better product?

    Normally we’d just cheer for someones departure like waiting for a player to retire or a coach to be fired but if his position is for life and departure tied to it then it’s understandable.

    Maybe at some point he’ll retire and we won’t have to wait that long. At 76 I’m not sure how much longer he can maintain his current level of contribution? And what age might he actually become a bigger hindrance as GM?

    That is true

    He's not the same guy who once came in here and said something like: "We must win. We will win. Win is the name of the game." These days even a horrible season like 2017 is considered winning. :facepalm:

    He had one stop in the NFL beyond Dallas - Miami. And yes, he didn't win a SB there but he had a winning record there. He made the playoffs in 3 of his 4 years there and also had 2 playoff wins in 4 seasons there (compared to our current coach who has 2 playoff wins in 8 years). Not great but hardly poor. So it's not like he had 5 NFL stops and all were bad and only Dallas was a good run.

    He was a very good at The U, granted that's college.

    On the flipside, you have Jones who has gone through half a dozen coaches since Johnson left - one won a SB with the team Johnson and Jerry built and the others pretty much were blah.

    I think the evidence is there that while the Cowboys of the 90s were a co-effort between the two, Johnson probably had more influence on how those teams were built than Jerry. Again that's not to say Jerry gets zero credit here. Shoot, he hired Jimmy so he gets a ton of credit for that.

    But if Jerry was such an influence on those teams and so good at roster building as evidenced by those 90s teams, then why has he gone 23 years with basically zero success as GM?

    Yep

    Bashing Jimmy for his record after leaving Dallas is an obvious attempt to prop Jerry up. For the life of me I cant figure out why Cowboy fans would defend Jerry. I’ve never personally met a fan who would. I’ve only heard from them on anonymous fan forum. Ha

    Not arguing, I just feel that too many think it's one guy.

    You are trolling. I never bashed Johnson, if you were unbiased you would see I said I held him pretty high. And, it's not defending Jones, it's being realistic and not blaming him for World hunger.
    Try not to make putting words in people's mouths so obvious.

    I wasn’t responding to you. Lol

    I was speaking generally which apparently hits a nerve with you which supports my notion. Thanks!!

    Obviously you were taking a shot at Jimmy for not having success anywhere else as you described it. IMO thats indirectly an attempt defending Jerry.
