The owner and general manager and it all begins and basically ends with him. Firstly, Jones will never ever get over his ego so we know that’s not going to change. For someone to come out and say a general manager with the same record as his he would have fired it basically says a lot for the team in general. Jerry wants your money plain and simple and as long as the Dallas Cowboys are the most popular franchise and worth over a billion dollars why should he change? Jerry Jones will never change, it’s his team and he feels he’s the best option to run it, even when he’s wrong.
Jones has a tendency to overpay players to keep them around and those players normally turn into lazy, greedy and non-usable players. Because of this, the salary cap is always an issue for the Cowboys and with a lack of money you can’t afford to lure talent to a team which makes you rely on draft picks and this helps you lose the depth to sustain a full year, which is why when a player goes out with an injury there really isn’t a solid backup to replace them.
As long as Jerry Jones is OK with mediocrity the Cowboys will continue to be just that.
