Jerry Remains Confident in Himself as GM

Jerry Jones has no intention of stepping down as general manager



    The Cowboys are at .500 currently, at 7-7. They’ve been .500 since Jason Garrett took over full-time as head coach. Many folks believe the only way the Cowboys will cease to be such a middling bunch is if Jerry Jones steps down as general manager.

    But Jones made clear this week--after watching his team collapse at home against the Packers on Sunday--that he doesn’t intend on going anywhere.

    "It's often said that, why don't I get someone to be the GM?" Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, per ESPN Dallas. "Why don't I get someone to pick the players? Well, who in the world do you think that person when they walk through the door and say, ‘We want to get this player or we want to pay this player,' what in the world do you think I'm going to do? I'm going to sit down and I'm going to go through it and I'm going to say, ‘Show me the player. Show me everything about the player before I write the check. Show me the player and let me see everything about the player.' Well, rather than that have happen, I get involved in it and know everything about the players before they get to the door. That, if you've got the time to do it, that's a better way to do it.”

    For those keeping score at home, the Cowboys have one playoff win in the last 17 years. They haven’t made the playoffs at all since 2009.
