Well, if Jerry Jones were going to replace himself as GM it would have been done by now. Now that we have hit April, it’s not a good time to be making such a change with draft day in just a few weeks and then things start to pick up a little heading into the summer. The focus needs to be on players instead of the front office. Besides that, there probably aren’t any good GM’s available this time of year. Most likely they have already been taken and are working at full speed now for their respective teams.
So now the elephant-in-the-room question comes forth to those of us sick of GM Jerry Jones. Do we want him to succeed as General Manager? Of course we want Jerry to succeed! I define his success by the Cowboys winning the Super Bowl this year. All of us die-hard Cowboys enthusiasts want to see it happen. I can’t speak for the other contributors for this website, but I will give credit where it is due to GM Jerry.
The only problem is that the Cowboys haven’t won a playoff game in 12 years and last won a Super Bowl when I was in 11th grade. I’m in my 30’s now!!! We can blame this drought on this or that or the other but the common denominator during this drought is GM Jerry. Players and coaches have come and gone since then and have taken a lot of blame but Jerry has been here through all of this and it hasn’t looked good in a long time.
Jerry has been on a personal quest since 1994 to prove to the world that he can win championships on his own. Whatever words he and Jimmy Johnson exchanged when the two were obviously drunk out of their heads and decided to part ways has irked Jerry so much that he won’t let it go. He wants Jimmy and the rest of his growing list of critics to eat our words and realize he is quite capable of running the entire show on his own and do well at it.
Well, for over a decade now, Jerry hasn’t been able to prove himself. Why should we think this coming football season will be any different? Realistically, I see a team with a lot of talent that could easily win the Super Bowl. I also see a dysfunctional organization from top to bottom. This team implodes every year and I am afraid it will happen again this year.
I sure hope I’m wrong. Please let me be wrong!
