Jerry Jones: No Change Coming to His Role as Cowboys GM

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted the roster could use some work, but said there’s going to be no change in the man mostly responsible for putting the roster together. That man would be no less than Jones himself.

Along with owning the team, he also serves as general manager.

“When you work for yourself, there’s no firing him. You gotta change him. And he’s gotta change the direction he’s going,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan radio. “I’ve worked all my life for myself, but I’ve had to change directions many times. So, I will change. I can change.”

The Cowboys (3-9) are suffering through a dismal season. The injury to starting quarterback Dak Prescott has something to do with that, but the defense has been a bigger issue. A simple eye test will tell you the Cowboys’ defense may be the worst in the entire NFL.

Jones admitted he wished he had a “do-over” in that department. But despite the wishes of some fans, there will be no such change coming to the front office.

“Do you have any idea how much I’d write a check for if I knew for sure I could get that Lombardi Trophy? It is the foremost thing,” Jones said. “Not money. I had money when I bought the Cowboys. … There has never been but one thing, and that is win.”

Just don’t ask Jones to replace the GM to do it.

  1. As a Cowboys fan I was hoping another team was interested in hiring him based on the headline. With Jerrah money is not the issue but ego is killing any chances of a SB in his lifetime. Enjoy the $$$ Jerrah but the trophies are in your past. Al Davis was probably your mentor…..you learned well. All hype!!! Hell, I just wish Jerrah was in my fantasy league as an annual paying doormat.
