    There are hucksters in every field of endeavor, and lots of them have gotten rich doing it. So what.

    But there's only a few football guys -- Halas, Paul Brown, maybe even Al Davis.

    So Jerry is condemned to the legacy of a snake oil salesman. But with a record of wins and losses as dismal and pathetic as his, he'll never be thought of as a football guy.

    I hope that eats at him. I really do.
    Of those, probably #2.

    Three Superbowls in four years doesn’t happen with Landry, Schram, and Bright. Jerry lucked into Jimmy and Jimmy lucked into Norv and the whole team lucked into Mike Lynn.

    Teams with three Super Bowl wins since 1989:

    New England
    Dallas
    Denver
    New York Giants

    Keep that in perspective.

    If you watch All or Nothing, you can clearly see the mixed signals the players receive from the coaches and Jerry Jones. Jerry basically excuses them after a loss. That's one huge reason why all the players don't give a shit. It takes ballsy cuts like the one with Dez and even Switzer to let everyone know their jobs are not safe and those were due to everyone else besides Jerry.

    Kelly Conway's on the phone for you. She wants to offer you a job in Trump's communications shop. Seriously. Anyone who can twist and spin the fiction of an equivalence between the NE Patriots and the Dallas Cowboys since 1989 has a gold-plated future the Trump administration.

    What do you do with the Three super bowl trophy’s. You can’t just ignore them although I know all the gyrations regarding he had nothing to do with it. Still as any owners resume they belong there just as any others credentials. A lot of owners are not regarded as football guys yet their team fairs well. Jones actually has as much of or more of a football background as most other owners with his collegiate experience and exposure as GM. He is in the NFL HOF and pretty well regarded in the league notwithstanding the Commissioner snafu. I dont think he looses a lot of sleep if someone doesn’t think he isn’t a football guy. With his wealth and station in life I dare say his consideration toward what someone thinks of him is virtually non existent. That’s just my opinion.

    If it was flipped and we were coming off our third Superbowl win in 4 years right now I'm sure the poll results would be different. But that early 90's success is so far away that it's hard to even remember what it was like.

    Case in point, when zeke have up on a play against the broncos...in the "coaches" meeting the following week Jerry said something to the effect of, "I don't want to make excuses, BUT Zeke's been under a lot of stress."

    When Jerry hired Jimmy and the turnaround turned into championships, I really liked Jerry. I thought he was ballsy to come in and do what he did. Even though I knew Jimmy was the brain behind the machine.
    Now twenty one years later since we were legit, it's truly embarrassing. Yet fans line up and buy into Jerry's shitshow. I think we're moving in the right direction. But don't tell me, show me.

    Last time we could be called contenders Bill Clinton was wrapping up his first term.
