Following an 8-8 season without a playoff berth, Jerry Jones doesn’t have all that many defenders around Dallas. But where many are blaming Jones for his refusal to hand over the reins to a “real” general manager, former Cowboy and current NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders believes that Jones is more than capable of putting together a Super Bowl contender.
In fact, in a recent radio interview with 103.3 ESPN Radio, Sanders was asked if he would hire his former boss as a general manager--and Sanders, unlike most fans of the Cowboys we’d imagine, said that he would.
“Yes I would,” Sanders said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don't know if you've been over there lately, but there are a few Super Bowls up there sitting in shelves. I would definitely hire him because I know him, and you guys are outside the hospital looking in. I like Jerry, man.
“It's not just as a friend or what he's accomplished, but if you're going to blame Jerry then you need to blame Stephen and throw in everyone in the scouting department.”
