Texas journalists are starting to tire of owner Jerry Jones’ steady failures as general manager of the Cowboys.
Read what the Fort Worth Star-Telegram says:
While the general manager of the Dallas Cowboys is working the phones to secure the biggest boxing match in years, he and his family are busy finalizing the production/construction that will be The Star in Frisco; the team’s practice facility will be yet another business “game changer” Jerry has introduced to the NFL.
The cruel irony is that, despite all of this increased business, notoriety and revenue Jerry has helped to create for North Texas and the Dallas Cowboys, none of it has helped to make his football team any better. The football portion of his football team remains miles behind the business part of his football team. Now is as good a time as any to recuse himself as its general manager.
A Cowboys person told me this type of move right now would be akin to “pigs flying.” That does not mean we can’t slap a pair of wings on Jerry and yell in unison his beloved University of Arkansas chant, “Woo Pig Sooie!” and see if it the darn thing can actually fly.
