In honor of the historic inauguration on January 20, FireGMJerry.com takes a look at the balance of power in these United States, and how these principles can be applied to a winning NFL Franchise.
Here is a standard textbook representation of the US Government’s Separation of Powers and the Checks and Balances each branch has over the others to maintain the optimum balance:

Franchises that adhere to this model in principle, including New England (Kraft-Pioli-Belichick), Miami (Huizenga/Ross-Ireland/Parcells-Sparano), and Pittsburgh(Rooney-Colbert-Tomlin) to name a few, have an inherent advantage over teams such as the Cowboys, whose power structure is unbalanced:
In our opinion, the only way to return the Cowboys to former glory is for Jerry Jones the Owner to fire Jerry Jones the GM, replace him with a proven football mind, and restore balance to the Cowboys’ power structure. No less an authority than the United States Constitution agrees.
