    He thought his whole "pornography" line was cute and worth sharing.

    He refuses to see how QB controversies are one of those topics the media will go out of its way to inflame and inflate.

    Jerry just loves the sound of his own voice and feeling important. It's why he continues to talk even when he should keep his mouth shut.

    Oh, I think he full well knows what he is doing. Having the Cowboys on the front page is very important to him. Even if it might mean some distraction to the team.

    Jones’ family relationship with Tony Romo made sitting QB “tough”

    By Charean Williams


    cjwilliams@star-telegram.com


    FRISCO —

    The Jones family’s relationship with Tony Romo made benching him one of the hardest decisions they have made.

    “Tough,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday. “You’ve got both sides. No one has more respect for a man and what Tony has done for us. He’s special. He’s done a lot of great things for this franchise that never happen without him. Until we finally got Dak [Prescott], everybody was able to see first hand when we had Tony in the games what was going on, we were winning them and when he wasn’t in the games, we weren’t. He was definitely the most valuable guy in the building for many, many years. I think he’s the most successful quarterback in terms of his production on the field.”

    But with the Cowboys off to an 8-1 start when Romo returned from a compression fracture in his back, the Cowboys kept Prescott in the lineup. Romo has served as Prescott’s the past four games.

    It’s possible Romo has played his last game for the Cowboys. He holds the franchise records in passing yards (34,154), completion percentage (65.3), touchdowns (247) and passer rating (97.07).

    Romo, 36, has a 78-49 regular-season record but only a 2-4 postseason mark. He has never made an NFC Championship Game.

    “Obviously, it stings that we don’t have a championship, and I know Jerry [Jones] and I both wear that heavily in terms of the fact that we haven’t been able to get the right team around him so that he could win one, because he obviously has all the skills to do it,” Stephen Jones said. “It’s difficult. No question. No one wanted to get his hands on this team more than he did. Things happen for a reason, and obviously that was a very unfortunate freak injury that happened to him in Seattle. It’s fortunate but misfortune in terms of Tony that obviously in Dak we found a very special football player at quarterback.”

    Stephen Jones said Prescott should appreciate Jerry Jones’ loyalty to Romo.

    “Dak will appreciate this - that over the long haul Jerry is a very loyal person, and Dak will be the biggest beneficiary of this organization when it's all said and done,” Stephen Jones said. “Jerry does not forget the people that do special things for him. Tony's had several special seasons here, and it's obvious to everybody that Tony has a special place. I tell everybody, ‘Does that bother you?' and it shouldn't bother Dak. He should love that. One day he will benefit in spades from Jerry's loyalty. I know Dak's going to do so many special things for our organization going forward.”
    -----------

    Still kind of odd that Stephen calls his father Jerry like Bart calls his dad Homer.

    I don't think it's odd at all. I know a lot of people that do that in a business setting.

    To me, it would seem a lot more odd hearing him say things like "Well, my dad thinks that we should..." or "You'll have to talk to my dad about that..."

    I agree. Even worse if he uses Daddy, instead. Would be thinking about Junior and Sherriff Buford T Justice of Portague County.
