How Much is on Jerry
Usually, when a team is not performing well, you look at the roster and make changes based on wherever players aren’t playing well. If after changes are made to the roster but not to the record, you look to the coaches. From there, you look to the GM.
Jerry Jones has been the general manager for at least 15 seasons when he shouldn’t have been, and that’s pushing it. I would say anytime between after the 2000 or 2004 season that I think he would have been fired.
The problem with Jerry isn’t that he is the GM, it’s that he is the owner. He is passionate about football and believes he knows how to position the team in the best way possible. Even if he were to give up his position, it would be given to his son, Stephen Jones.
Even with his son in the position instead of him, there is no way possible that Jerry won’t have an influence on how the Cowboys organization is run. Not only is Jerry having a great time in his position, but he is also making a ridiculous amount of money.
He bought the organization for $140 million, and now it’s worth $5.5 billion. In doing the math, you can see that Jerry on average increased the value of the team by more than what he bought the team for … every single year. That’s an average $177 million per year.
A potential buyer would have to cough up an unheard-of amount of money to convince Jerry to give up America’s Team. So basically, the Jones family will control everything Cowboys, unless Stephen one day decides to take a step back.
So now my answer to the big question. Should Jerry Jones be gone? Yes, he should be. Will he? No possible way.
