The Dallas Cowboys have been a middling team for the better part of two decades, but Jerry Jones believes these past few years have seen some of his best work as general manager.
“The facts are, I really do think that the way that things have rolled out, that I’m getting to do some of the best work that I’ve done, relatively speaking, in my career, these last several years,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, per the Dallas Morning News.
Perhaps because he’s riding such a general managing hot streak (?), Jones says he plans on holding that title for a good while. Like, maybe a decade or two.
“One of the reasons that I, to some degree, have taken the risks that I have over the years and kind of had the professional life that I followed is so that I get to decide when enough is enough, God willing,” Jones said. “So I do get to decide that. It’s a certain part of working for yourself if you still are standing when the time comes. So I get to really make that decision, and I want to make it in a way that I think is in the best interest of the team, franchise and really our fans.”
