Dallas Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones looks on during a preseason game against the Tennessee Titans at Dallas Cowboys Stadium on August 21, 2009 in Arlington.
In a story sure to surprise no one around Dallas, Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones suggested on Sunday night that the forthcoming changes, ostensibly to Valley Ranch will not affect Jones’ role in any capacity--which means, Jerry the general manager is here to stay, for good or ill.
"Don't imply there that my role is going to change at all,” Jones told reporters, per the Dallas Morning News. “Don't do that. You'll get something stuck."
Jones vowed “consequences” after Sunday night’s 45-7 loss in Green Bay, but refused to expand on the idea further. To be sure, Jones believes the team is highly talented; he also knows that his team is hemorrhaging blood, and fans want to see heads roll. As of now, Jones wants to avoid the impulse to make rash, wholesale changes, and maintain perspective.
"At least a long enough term to think about what we'll be doing next year, but we have seven, eight games left this year and certainly I don't want to waste one series or one quarter," Jones said. "But I should and do in my role look at certainly the long term if you want to quantify it as the next couple two, three years. We've got some players in here that are in the prime times of their careers and I want the most out of them for the team and our fans."
