    I actually think it's kind of like an addiction for him. For instance, addicts know drugs are wrong and are hurting themselves and their families, but they struggle to push away from the problem. I think Jerry knows he hasn't done a good job and that there are others who are more qualified to do the job, but he just can't bring himself to turn over the decision making to someone else.

    He's openly acknowledged on more than one occasion that he'd have fired the GM a long time ago if they produced the results that he's produced.

    He's too addicted to doing things his way, so I doubt watching Witten and Romo walk out of here with minimal team success to show for their time in Dallas will influence him to chance his methodology.

    He does lament them (Romo and Witt) not winning it all during their careers as Cowboys on All or Nothing.
    Leading in defensive player suspensions, 5 years and counting

    I'm sure it does bother him. But what's he going to change to ensure this doesn't happen to the next generation of Cowboys?

    Probably nothing....and that's my point.

    I'm sure he understands there are football minds out there who are far better qualified to run the day to day operations of the Dallas Cowboys than he and his family. But he's not wired in a way that will allow him sit back like Kraft and the Rooneys and watch others build a championship.

    So Jerry lamenting the organization's failure to fully maximize the brilliant careers of guys like Ware, Witten, and Romo doesn't give me any type of hope that he'll change.

    To me it's just dramatic show for the public.

    Yep.

    I think Jerry thinks he's good at being a GM, but that's not why he's doing it. He's doing it because he wants to. He's said on multiple occasions that (1) a GM with his track record would have otherwise been fired by now, and (2) he wouldn't want to own the team without running it.

    He's also said he thinks the cowboys have an advantage being run this way, because he can make in-the-moment decisions without having to check with anybody.

    It's not a results based position so it doesn't matter what he laments. Things will never ever change.

    Terrell Owens wonders why Jerry Jones doesn’t fire Jason Garrett
    Posted by Michael David Smith on May 17, 2018, 3:01 PM EDT

    Jason Garrett was the offensive coordinator for two of Terrell Owens’ three seasons in Dallas, but as a head coach, Garrett is in over his head, Owens says.

    Owens said on 105.3 The Fan that he he doesn’t know why Garrett remains the coach despite never advancing past the divisional round of the playoffs.

    “I have no idea. You know what’s really tough? When you really look at it, it doesn’t make sense for Jason Garrett to continue to have his job. [The organization is] not really expanding or progressing even as a team under his coaching tenure there,” Owens said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think Jerry [Jones] — again he’s the owner at the end of the day, he has to feel good with himself about the decisions — but I just don’t understand why this guy [Garrett] still has a job.”

    Owens didn’t always see eye to eye with Andy Reid, who sent Owens packing from Philadelphia, but Owens says Reid was a far better coach than Garrett. In Owens’ opinion, Garrett just doesn’t get the job done.

    Then Stephen takes over and some of the stuff he says doesn't give me much confidence.

    He's obviously ignorant to the process.
