    I've never encountered someone who's as popular as he is disliked than Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. This guy has as many fans as he does detractors. I am one of them. As much as l like Jerry Jones, and love what he does for football, I'm equally one of his bigger critics. He does some dumb stuff: keep himself as GM, bring in Pacman Jones, keep Wade Phillips as head coach, etc. But he's a marketing genius, has three Super Bowls, and his Cowboys are still the biggest draw in the NFL.

    I was fortunate to be able to sit down with Jerrah on Thursday and discuss everything from his 20-years as Cowboys owner, to embattled head coach Wade Phillips. I'm glad I got the opportunity. Be sure to watch Out Of Bounds Sunday night at 10:30 to hear what Jerry had to say.
