Carl Shelton at Blogging the Boys asks “who the hell are [we] as fans to poke fun at a billionaire with three Super Bowl rings?”
Jerry Jones wants to win so bad he can’t help himself. I’m no business expert, but I bet Jerry Jones didn’t build his billion dollar empire by sitting back and letting other people work. Jerry Jones is a go-getter, and go-getters don’t sit on their hands, they make moves. Jerry Jones, like many other successful people, got to where he is by rolling the dice. That’s the only way he knows how to play. Maybe Jerry does meddle a bit, but it is because he wants to win so bad that he feels he needs to be involved. By the way, he does own the team.
We have never taken issue with Jerry’s three Super Bowls. In fact, it’s the Jerry Jones from this era we long to have back–the Jerry that knew how to let others manage things. Unfortunately, the dedication and drive that earned those three rings also drove him and his ego to new meddling heights that’s left this team where it is.
Carl can claim it’s all one “great misconception”, but even he cannot deny that most glaring fact: zero playoff victories in twelve seasons.
Once our Cowboys earn that long overdue post-season win, perhaps then we can discuss clearing up misconceptions (WeLoveYouJerryJones.com).
