Cowboys VP Stephen Jones Thinks He Deserves Some Blame, Too

Jones believes his father, Jerry Jones, is getting more than his fair share of the blame for the Cowboys' recent struggles



    Seeing as the Dallas Cowboys are 3-5 on the season and have lost all but four of their last 13 games, dating back to last season, it’s no wonder that there’s a lot of blame being passed around at the moment. For obvious reasons, a lot of that blame is being assigned to Cowboys’ owner, president and general manager Jerry Jones.

    But Jerry doesn’t deserve ALL the blame; some of it belongs to the Cowboys vice president, Stephen Jones--this according to Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones, who expanded on this idea on Wednesday, in an appearance on 105.3-FM The Fan.

    You got to have thick skin to work in this world,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “At the same time, they’re being critical of (my dad) and in my mind they’re being critical of me. I talk him into a lot of the things and work with him and suggest a lot of the things that we do that he gets the blame for. I guess because I’m the backup quarterback, if you will, then I get a pass on all of it, which it shouldn’t be. … I know people may think that Jerry just sits up there and puts his thumb in the air and says this is what we’re going to do. But it’s far from that. I’m very, very involved and I have a big influence."

    “Obviously, Jason [Garrett] is, obviously Tom Ciskowski and our scouting department is. There’s a lot of influence that goes on and rarely is there a situation that there’s not a consensus derived. On the very few times that we just can’t come together on something than he’ll be the tiebreaker on it.”
