Myth 3: Not a football person:

This has some good clout because yes Jerry really isn’t a football person. After playing college football, he went into the business world and didin’t return to football until he bought the Cowboys. But, he had the football knowledge to hire great coaches like Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcells. He has a big support system with the best football minds helping him make those crucial football decisions. He has made some big time picks that have helped the franchise like receiver Dez Bryant, linebacker Sean Lee, and defensive end Demarcus Ware. Yes, he has made some questionable moves throughout his career, like the Quincy Carter move.  But, overall the franchise hasn’t gone down the drain because of his poor football maneuvers. He has been overall, pretty average.

 

So, is he the perfect GM?  No he isn’t. But he is one of the best owners in sports that will do anything to get his team to a championship. That is what matters in the end.
